Friday Night, Every Night

Me and Matt are terrible sleepers.

I have always been a thinker, a worrier and a bit of a stress-head so sleep never found me easily. Matt, on the other hand, is a volcano, erupting heat onto himself, the covers and me which you can imagine doesn’t help the situation at all. Recently though, now we’re on holiday from university, it became ridiculous. It’s no longer a matter of ‘we can’t sleep’, it’s simply ‘we don’t want to, we don’t need to, so let’s not.’

Sleeping pattern? Routine? What are those words? Who knows. Last night, we went to bed at 6am, and woke up at 2pm. Our body clocks have temporarily broken. It’s altering our perception of days and nights, our food, our schedules and probably our health too. The ultimate night-owls.

We figured out our problem though. Sleeping is a waste of time, so we put it off for as long as possible. We enjoy each other too much, and love being in the other’s company. We enjoy our hobbies and our home and our cats and never want to leave. Our brains are busy and we’re happy. We’re making the most of our last stress-free weeks in the foreseeable future before it all gets too serious.

In 2 weeks, real life kick-starts once more. This isn’t long term. We’re both looking forward to getting back into the world of normality and routine, yes, but for now let’s make the most of everything we can!

Sleep is rubbish.

      • Its hard to… I heard it said once that if you love someone truly dont marry them, dont have a joint bank account and dont have children with them. While the ethos is screwed and not in the spirit of being together, i kind of see the point. The biggest obstacle is money in my view, having a big house and new car and that is all well and good, but a simpler life where you dont need to be serious and dont have these things is the key to a happier life. ☺
        Sorry to beserious, but i wish someone told me this when i was young

      • I can kind of see the point, but then again some people can love each other but still not be friends. I think friendship is the absolute key.
        For us, university is the killer of the serious-free life! After graduation, we have the option to stay as young at heart as we possibly can. It’s education that is making us old.
        We dream of the simple life. As long as we have enough money to live and pay the bills… Saying that though, the ability to live off the land and not depend on anything else would be wonderful.

  1. It’s funny – I do the exact opposite when I have no obligations. Sleep is everything! But I am by myself, no boyfriend or pet. I once read that lonely people (not that I am really lonely, I am totally okay, but … mostly alone during the day) sleep more.
    I am glad that you are happy πŸ™‚ I hope it lasts forever!

  2. I problem with sleeping is that I always want it when I can’t have it, haha. Whenever I’m free I’d do anything but sleep. However when I have uni or something similar I can’t get myself to leave the bed.
