Did you know approx one third of the average person's lifetime is devoted to Sleep?  But this I ween is based on time spent a-bed with sleep, what of semi-sleeps that occur, sleep-walking, sleep-talking, sleep-writing, sleep-driving, sleepchurching, sleep-schooling.  
In existance I would be surprised if sleep doesn't take up almost 2/3rds!  
And then, we have to go to work?   When we are bound toward eternal sleep of death? And are made to have to sleep 2/3rds yet our life, we then have to for the last third, work?
Where is time for real living?!!

I'd like to know where they come up with those figures... Certainly not by watching my life!! lol
Maybe I'll get that promised 1/3 when I die.

We are all equal but we’re individually different
and able to reach the impossible if we try.

Sleep.. it's what i do most and yet i can't get enough of it! You know, I dream about school?! Dreaming of the tests, the notes, the reading, so it's like I'm always working. Working while I'm asleep and while I'm awake. The only rest i get is when I dream inside my dream. ahhhhh............
