About 5am.

In this long night up, I thought it was about time I wrote a post. It’s been so long since I last published something, that even if it ends here it will be better than nothing. Still, it won’t end here.

I went to bed feeling sleepy at midnight and I woke up two hours later feeling pretty much awake, with anxiety in my limbs. I call it “anxiety in my limbs” when I get that annoying need to nervously contract the muscles of my arms (and sometimes my legs) repeatedly. When that happens, I have to pray that I feel awake enough to get up immediately, before it drives me crazy in my desperate attempt to fall back to sleep, twitching and turning like a mad bull (mad bull? I don’t know, it just came out, it’s freaking 5am).

So I turned on some music (Elton John, smart move) and came to the kitchen to make myself some bruschetta. I wish I had taken a picture ’cause it looked pretty tasty – or was it just because it’s 5 in the morning? Well, since I haven’t, you can still check my Instagram account for the amazing vegan ice-cream I had yesterday. Or the day before. (@italianhurricane)

You would think I’m going somewhere with this, but I’m afraid I’m not. I thought that by writing I would figure out what in my mind is keeping my awake, but it might just be my ovulation. Too straight? I guess that’s what happens what you write at 5am.

What do you do when you can’t sleep?

Did I mention what time it is? Man, I wish I were sleeping.

  1. Honestly, when I can’t sleep, sometimes i just close my eyes and think that eventually, it’ll happen. Sometimes I listen to music though. I’m sorry you couldn’t sleep. It’s good to hear from you.


  2. I don’t think you mentioned what time it is. Could you please repeat it? 😀

    Also, I used to get “anxiety in my limbs” really bad. I mean for a few months I practically didn’t sleep. Eventually I found out it was because I was drinking too much caffeine and/or not exercising enough. When I exercise regularly and keep my daily coffee intake down to two cups a day I don’t have any problems. I don’t have any direct experience with ovulation though.


So, what do you think?
