Fighting Insomnia

So, some of you may have noticed that I've been a busy little bee with my blog design. That's sort of what happens when I can't sleep, little gremlins come out and work me like a slave! All joking aside, I like this new layout much better, don't you? I've moved my Entrecard widget up above the fold, changed my adsense around, and I'm really enjoying the three column design.
Other than that, each time I blink it feels like my eyeballs are sticking to my eyelids. That's an altogether unpleasant feeling after my PRK surgery back in January. I'm not sure why I haven't been sleeping very well lately to be honest. It's not that I'm not sleepy, I'm actually very tired, but my mind just doesn't seem to want to turn off. I'm really looking forward to the weekend! It will be nice to lounge out for a while and then work more on my writing. At least I've been keeping up with my blog posts, that's very important to me. Even if I don't get the time to put as much effort into my projects as I would like, I still get some writing done and that's important.

Since my mind is feeling a bit sluggish this evening I'll share with you a little gem of information. I used to play World of Warcraft, a massively multiplayer online role playing game. This took up a lot of my time, but my two younger brothers played as well and we had quite a bit of fun with it. One day while we were testing out the new expansion before release I decided to put together a video of one of our player versus player matches. It was a lot of fun doing it, I could have made the video a bit better, true, but I think it turned out decent, and every other week or so I still get comments on it to this day.

that's happened to me before. not being able to sleep because your mind won't rest like the rest of your exhausted body. yet another aspiring writer.

As a big World of Warcraft fan, I thoroughly enjoyed the video. I've never tried arena play, so it was fun to see what it's like. I'm more of a player-vs-environment kind of girl.

I totally empathize with the insomnia thing and not being able to shut off your brain. The thing that works for me is watching reruns on television, especially cartoon reruns. As much as I love The Simpsons and Family Guy, if I've seen the episode before, I'm pretty much guaranteed to fall asleep.
