Bitten By Bejeweled Again

As many of my friends know, I’ve been having trouble sleeping lately. For some reason, I seem to keep waking up almost every hour. At most I get three hour stretches of sleep. I try to spend as much time as I can lying in bed trying to fall asleep again, but since it often ends up just frustrating me even more, I have taken to playing Bejeweled over at Facebook again to help me get sleepy. Bad idea. While it does help with the sleep thing, I seem to have gotten the Bejeweled bug again! I catch myself sneaking a few games throughout the day (which, to be fair, should not be a problem since I don’t work a regular 9-5 office job!). It does take away time from my other tasks, such as writing reports and researching and/or writing articles  that have been assigned to me (yes, such as the candle article and the one about term life quotes).

More than just a pleasant distraction, I got to thinking that maybe Bejeweled is feeding another need of mine right now, which is to help quiet the noises in my head since I tend to think too much about everything around me. It helps me clear my head and after several games, it feels lighter and I am able to think again. That is until I think about beating my cousin’s score in the game…which I never seem to be able to do!!!
