An Addiction to 4 o'clock Honesty

I am ridiculously out of it right now. I probably shouldn't emphasize this point as I want my mom to take me out driving after dinner, but still, it's going to be pretty difficult to get through this blog without mentioning it. I would tell you to expect awkward segues and general signs of tiredness but you don't need to be told that. You, smart person, you.

Last night I stayed up until 4:30 in the morning, despite knowing that I would have to wake up and function again at 8am. Why?

Have you ever been at a slumber party and you stayed up really late talking because the conversation seemed worthier than sleep? Because, really, the kind of conversations that happen from 2-4am are the kind that make sleep seem as unnecessary as wool socks in July.

So yes, maybe it wasn't my best idea. But I think I'd do at again. I find that you can learn more about people in the middle of the night. There's a different way people talk to each other. More honest and raw. It's like you're too tired to filter what you're saying so it comes out how you actually feel, not some editing version that you think won't hurt anyone's feelings.

Basically, it's amazing.

I have a problem staying up late at sleepovers. I am always the last person asleep. I suppose because I love those moments of this-is-so-real-it's-not-even-cheesy heart-to-hearts and I don't mind sacrificing sleep to get one.

I shall go now. Have a wonderful day.

Q: I know school has ended for Rena but when do you finish Vita? In public schools year there's one more week of classes and exams next week. As for me, I may never finish. Isn't that nice?
