Insomnia Series Part 1

There’s something about trying to sleep when there’s something heavy on your heart & mind. The more that you try and take your mind off of what’s bothering you, the more you seem to think about it. Then, when what’s bothering you is out of your control, it seems like you could be potentially losing sleep for nothing. Either way, you’re still up all night trying to figure out a solution.

This somehow leads me to a somewhat unrelated point: entertainers, from actors to musicians, are all humans too. Sometimes it feels like people lose touch with the fact that they’re favorite artists are regular people (who are often put in not-so-regular scenarios).

With that being said, you have to keep in mind that regular people have regular flaws. Your favorite rapper goes through trying times just like anyone else. Your presidential candidate won’t always say everything right. An Oscar winning actor can still have a failed marriage. Sometimes, it is hard to live up to your own expectations, let alone the expectations of others. Pressure burst pipes, and as adults, it seems like every day has more pressure than the day before.

Anyway, I’ll stop ranting and rambling at 4am, and get back to watching “A Thin Line Between Love & Hate” on TBS. (its the only thing on TV)
