Across the Universe

Once a second somewhere in the universe a star explodes with the brilliance of an entire galaxy.
- National Geographic
That makes me feel ... awe. I must admit, I could use a little more awe these days.

I don't feel that busy, but I guess I really am. I've written near nothing in terms of prose this semester what a frustrating feeling.

Today I got serious and instead of picnicing around, I sat, sweating in a sweaty library. Make a resume. Future enterprises and a job that will pay the bills and not make my heart turn black and brittle. Right now I'm alone in these feelings. This worry. All I want to do is enjoy the weather and not have to aknowledge the fact that I won't be living this life in a few months.
A perfect option that will keep my heart green and wild. But The Last Unicorn can't count on anything (anyone) so she won't get too excited, but of course the fear will stick to her ribs for a bit. If this works out if this all works out, I'll give it all I have.

and because I care, I'm tired of hearing excuses, and I don't know what to say anymore:

The Harvard Women’s Health Watch suggests six reasons to get enough sleep
1) Learning and memory: Sleep helps the brain commit new information to memory through a process called memory consolidation. In studies, people who’d slept after learning a task did better on tests later.
2)Metabolism and weight: Chronic sleep deprivation may cause weight gain by affecting the way our bodies process and store carbohydrates, and by
altering levels of hormones that affect our appetite.
3)Safety: Sleep debt contributes to a greater tendency to fall asleep during the daytime. These lapses may cause falls and mistakes such as medical errors, air
traffic mishaps, and road accidents.
4)Mood:Sleep loss may result in irritability, impatience, inability to concentrate, and moodiness. Too little sleep can also leave you too tired to do the things you
like to do.
5)Cardiovascular health: Serious sleep disorders have been linked to hypertension, increased stress hormone levels, and irregular
6)Disease: Sleep deprivation alters immune function, including the activity of the body’s killer cells. Keeping up with sleep may also help fight cancer.
The Importance of Sleep

My limbs are shaky about the future.
