I fall asleep immediately when I go to bed. I tend to stay up as late as possible every night. I have a lot of things to do and time flies! When the time I can go to bed comes, I get really relaxed. At the moment I turn the light off, I feel released.
When I was a small child, my parents sent me to bed long before felt sleepy. Sometimes they read a book for me at my bedside and sometimes I read a book by myself lying in bed. After they turned the light off and left the room, I would stay still in my bed alone and close my eyes hoping no monsters would notice I was there. I would carefully listen to catch if there were any strange sounds around me.
I had many horrible dreams, like being chased by dinosaurs, being caught by aliens, running away from monsters, unable to move because of ghosts, etc..
Now I rarely dream of anything. I sleep, whoosh, the morning comes. I am happy that I don’t have nightmares anymore. But sometimes I miss my innocent childhood.
