Insomnia and the Army

Posted in SSDD on September 23, 2010 by livemorbidia

I haven’t blogged in a while so I started a new category that is going to be my journal. I entitled it SSDD, or Same Shit Different Day for those of you who don’t know. Basically this journal is to keep me writing and update you on events I see fit to tell you about. I haven’t added anything new under Ranting and Raving yet because I haven’t found anything interesting to poke a stick at. I haven’t added anything under Short Stories yet because I haven’t finished the first one I’m going to put up here. You see I don’t want to put up any of my old stories because they are dated to me, they just aren’t as good as I used to think they where. As for Poems, well I’m working on a few things but don’t get your hopes up.
I haven’t been sleeping very well, I never really have been able too. Yes I do sleep, but I have trouble doing so a lot more often than most of the people I know. I don’t quite understand it. I mean I think I have what’s called “slow sleep insomnia”, that is I don’t go into REM sleep as quickly as I should. When I do sleep I never feel like I slept well and it always takes a while to even fall asleep. And the there are the nights I can’t sleep at all. It feels like I’m wide awake, like something is revving the engine in my mind. I don’t know. It just pisses me off sometimes because it’s usually the night before something important that I can’t sleep. And maybe that’s the reason I can’t sleep, because I’m thinking about what I have to do the next day. However, like I said before, I don’t know.
In other news, I decided a little while ago that I was going to join the Army. For those of you who don’t know me, I have been thoroughly  opposed to the military action in Iraq. It doesn’t make sense that we are even in that country. Wasn’t Afghanistan supposed to be where Bin Laden was hiding? The whole thing is just odd, but that’s another blog in itself. Anyway, I took the ASVAB(Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) and scored an 89. My recruiter said that was 10 points below perfect and that I could do pretty much what ever I wanted in the army.  That’s pretty cool I suppose, I just wish I knew what the fuck I wanted to do. I suppose I just like to do too many things. I like writing, cooking, history, reading, science, and acting. I just don’t like anyone of those things more than the other. I suppose I could be a Medical Laboratory Specialist but that sounds like a lot of work. I could be a Combat Journalist, but that just doesn’t sound like my kind of journalism. Or I could be a Food Service Specialist, but I have a feeling that means washing a lot of dishes. I know what you’re thinking, ‘ Livemorbidia is a lazy bastard.’ Well you know what fuck you. I know I’m lazy, but I also know that I have to do something with my life. I just don’t know what.
Anyway I’m tired of staring at this computer screen, peace bitches.
