On Insomnia and Bubble Tea

Many of my favorite interwebz writers make multiple updates daily, and often those are much more entertaining to read than having to wait weeks and weeks for a long ranting post. So I'll aspire to write more. Because I am an actor and therefore love attention. Writers love attention too though. Right?

Not much has been happening lately. I'm reading and cooking, mostly lazing about and trying not to eat copious amounts of food.

I've also had problems sleeping though. I've always taken about three hours to fall asleep and never thought anything of it, until last week or so I couldn't fall asleep the entire night. I tossed and turned and then before I knew it there was light filtering into my bedroom. I sat up and snapped this picture through my window blinds...

So finally I decided to stop fighting the insomnia and I woke up, fed the dogs, and proceeded with my day.

It was awful.

This happened again a couple days later, but I did manage to get a nap in the morning.

So I decided to get serious. Today I went to Bath & Bodyworks and bought some lavender shower stuff and lavender "pillow mist," basically good-smelling stuff for your pillow so you sleep better, and now must refrain from electronic activity (or underwear-clad dancing time) at least an hour and a half before I go to bed. I'll conquer insomnia!

Bubble tea always makes me feel better. In the summer I like cold jasmine tea, but in the winter my favorite is a strong black tea with strawberry. And, of course, tapioca bubbles :-)


Good night everyone. Soon I'll be in New York again and I cannot wait until then.
