Sleep Paralysis

I was having a lot of trouble going to sleep, as usual. There are 1,000,001 things going on in my head, making it really difficult to even sleep a wink. It takes me anywhere from 1 - 5 hours after I've gotten myself situated in bed. Unless I get back from Disneyland, then it is super easy haha.

Once I finally got to sleep, I had the best dream! Meeting YogscastSips, who is my favorite YouTuber...which I'm sure you all know by now since I don't shut up about it. You know how when you try to talk, but nothing comes out? Well that happened. Which sucks because I wanted to talk to him, & get a picture, yada yada.

Soon after, my friends & I left to go back to my place, & we all went to sleep...except for me, because I always have too much on my mind. Here I am, in a dream, having the same experience that I'm having in real life: trying to sleep & failing. Which puts me in a state of confusion, because now I'm thinking I'm awake in real life. So my mind is wandering, & I'm looking around the room. Which is something that I usually do, because not knowing what is around me sort of freaks me out. Even though Latte & Killer would go crazy if something wasn't right, it still puts me on edge. And I'm sure that just adds to the whole going to sleep thing.

New Computer (2014)

As some of you already know, I've had a lot of problems with my computer recently. We (my techie grandpa & I) tested out a bunch of solutions, but eventually had to take it somewhere to get it diagnosed. During that couple of weeks, I decided that it was probably time for an upgrade. My graphics card was slightly outdated, along with a few other parts. So we basically ended up building a new computer. I go a bit more into detail in this video. There are some photos at the end of this post if you're curious to see what it looks like.
