For someone who loves and enjoys dreams and dreaming as much as I do, you'd think I'd spend less time and effort avoiding sleep!

I'm hardly certain why I do it, postpone going to bed until the latest (or sometimes earliest) possible moment, but I do. Sometimes, I suppose, the reason has to do with my brain not wanting to stop processing information, never stop thinking, even though, as I dream, it certainly continues to do so. Sometimes, I feel as if I have too much to do, and not enough time to do it in, though I can erase that one with rationalization as well, since the longer I put off sleep, the less productive and focus I become. (Except, strangely enough, around the sixteen hour mark, and that awake-ness and clarity usually lasts for four to six hours. Naturally, when I get close to the twenty-fourth hour, I'm more tired than I was at my normal sleep time, around the fourteen-hour mark.)
