19. Maybe I should watch some TV?

21. Well, that was an exciting episode. I'm even more awake.

22. Fuck.

23. If I go to sleep now, I'll get seven hours of sleep.

24. Maybe I should watch a boring show.

25. Like, I'll be so bored my brain will switch off through self-preservation.

41. That'd be weird.

42. I'm so tired and I'm so awake.

43. You know, I bet it's all the noise.

44. I mean, I can't hear any noise, but I bet my subconscious is hearing it.

45. It's arriving in my brain without going through my ears, that's what's happening.

46. Stupid silent noise keeping me awake.

47. It's almost 3am.
