I really need to get some sleep.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if we didn't have to go to sleep?

If that were the case, then...

  • There wouldn't have to be any beds in our rooms.
  • Women wouldn't be complaining about men dozing off right after having sex.
  • Life wouldn't be routinary. We can spend all day doing what we want to do without any regard for time.
  • You can play very loud music in the middle of the night and you're neighbor wouldn't freak out.
  • You're neighbor can play very loud music in the middle of the night and you wouldn't be freaking out.
  • You and your neighbors can play very loud music in the middle of the night, all at the same time, and the police wouldn't give a damn.
  • You wouldn't have to experience waking up with toothpaste slobbered all over your face because your idiotic room-mate had nothing else better to do.
  • No bed marks in the morning.
  • You can get really drunk and totally shitfaced without passing out.
  • You can start doing your homework at 4 AM in the morning.
  • Etc, etc...

Come to think of it, if we are incapable of sleeping then we would also be incapable of dreaming.

THAT to me is quite scary. It's like living in a world without night. A world where you can never see the stars. A world where you cannot have the chance to be someone else -OR- to be somewhere that's not of this world. It is in dreams where we get to see friends or family that we've lost. And Perhaps, even people that we are still about to meet. Without dreams, you'd be living a life that's totally devoid of imagination. Without it, there wouldn't be any distinction between you and the plant that's placed beside the sofa in your office lobby. You'd be a something instead of being a someone. We're nothing without dreams. (sounds familiar, doesn't it?)

Sometimes, I tend to consider sleeping as a drag. Specially when I'm swamped at work. I guess I shouldn't be like that. Sleeping is one of the best things in life - along with eating and of course, that F word that ends with ING - and it's something that I should be thankful for. So tonight, I shall loose myself in slumber for tomorrow... I get to be someone again.

You see... I really need to get some sleep before I start writing about talking hamsters and dragon breathing fires. Or is it fire breathing dragons? Oh well...
