Sleep is a current theme in John’s songs, (“Strawberry fields forever” “I’m so tired”, “#9 Dream″) and ‘I’m only sleeping’ was the very first song he wrote that had this dreamy atmosphere.
In the book “John Lennon: In my life’ written by Pete Shotton, John’s friend recalls that one thing John hated more than going to bed at night was getting out of it the next day:
“In his private Kenwood existence, John avoided any semblance of a routine, preferring to eat, sleep, or work when and if he happened to feel hungry, tired or inspired. If I were there, he would often want to talk and play all night long - in which case he would rarely emerge from his bedroom before two o’ clock the following afternoon.”
This John’s habit inspired not only John to write a song, but also Paul. In fact, when he wanted to write, he used to come over to John’s house in the afternoon and wake him up for a work session.
“Often Paul would be John’s morning alarm call. Living at Wimpole Street…meant he got up earlier than John and packed more into each day. John led a more relaxed suburban life but if he went to dinner in London or to a club, living so far from town meant that he returned home very late. Paul would arrive at midday or the early afternoon and wake him up, which was where John got the idea for ‘I’m Only Sleeping.’” - Barry Miles, ‘Many Years from now’
But sometimes, Paul would just wait for John to wake up. One day, while he was sitting outside by the pool while John was sleeping, he wrote ‘Here, there and everywhere.’ John, on the other hand, had the idea to write ‘I’m only sleeping’.
“That’s me,..dreaming my life away” - John, Playboy Interview, 1980.
“It was a nice idea — ‘There’s nothing wrong with it. I’m not being lazy, I’m only sleeping, I’m yawning, I’m meditating, I’m having a lay-in.’ The song was co-written but from John’s original idea.” —Paul McCartney, Many Years From Now by Barry Miles.
At 2:01 you can hear Paul yawning. (…mimicking John?:) )
My professors: This homework assignment will probably take a while so make sure you start several days early and manage your time well !!!! It’s due at 12:00:00 am on the dot this Wednesday and if you miss the deadline your grade drops massively !!! Have a good rest of your week !!!
Also my professors: [emails the assignment to the class at 4 in the morning before it’s due despite being nagged about it all week and doesn’t extend the due date]
I had a shitty night last night after dinner and despite getting only 5 hours of sleep, I’m functional enough to get some things done today.
Like this post.
Last night, I reached 1,000 followers!
This makes me insanely happy. It really does. I must be doing something right to keep over a thousand of you here.
I want to thank each and every one of you for following me because without you, I wouldn’t be making this post right now. I’m eternally grateful that you follow me and when I’ve been down in the dumps, a lot of you stepped up to ensure I was alright. To make sure I was still fighting the good fight.
When I started this blog (which was originally named celahcain) over a year ago, it was suppose to be my escape for nerding out on Supernatural stuff as I was very new to the fandom and wasn’t exactly comfortable with telling people about it (which is exactly what I did when I was more active in the Harry Potter Universe.) Then it evolved into, “Hey, some of these writers are really good! Makes me wanna get back into writing.” (The very first fanfiction I ever wrote was actually a roleplay script for Harry Potter LARPing, and it’s still on floppy disks. This was back when I didn’t know what LARPing and fanfiction was!) Then I started getting more serious with my writing for Supernatural, and people started flocking towards me. It’s humbling.
I write for myself, and with that means making sure I love what I’m writing, otherwise who else will? The love and praise I’ve received for everything I’ve written so far, while it isn’t the reason I write, it sure has kept me going.

day oct 16th - post-series.
The hardships she’s had to endure make it difficult for Arya to sleep in, her dreams offering little to no comfort. Knows it is the same for all of them, her family – for Bran and Sansa and Jon. Knows it to be truer now, after the Great War, after the horrors the Night King brought over once he felled The Wall.
Nothing short of illness would make them linger in bed now. Not when there’s still so much to do—to heal.
Almost forgot to post this here! After talking to Allie about our clown babs, I decided to doodle up Rusty’s changed self.
Someone probably tried to touch his hat. He is very protective over it and wears it constantly…when he sleeps, eats, bathes, everything. Only those special few he trusts with his precious head wear can touch it and maybe even wear it..but even then he is not completely sure about it.
Hey y'all… it’s 3AM and my boyfriend is trying to sleep cause he’s going to a Solange concert tomorrow but like… I been looking through my old posts and I remembered how my blog used to be like a diary and how people interacted with me when I felt super lonely and depressed…

I just decided to have a look at my remixed drarry soulmate au (I’m stockpiling options to choose from for when I post something at Christmas as a gift, having options makes it less scary) and my brain just did a dumb. A big, shoot myself in the foot, dumb.
So the original version that was on ffnet (and was my 2nd story tied with Restraint (was writing them at the same time, but finished the soulmate au first, does that make it 2nd? eh whatevs)) was 50k long, Draco’s pov, and went year by year in order, following canon until the battle in 7th year, and then split from canon for an 8th year and a post-hogwarts scene..
Then after I deleted everything off my ffnet account (I wasn’t about to post this on AO3 so it was still available like everything else, because I got a lot of really fucking nasty reviews on it and fuck that) I decided to remix it. For funsies. And cos I always wanted to do something non-linear and my writing style makes doing that from scratch impossible (unable to plan and write to a plan), I could just cut and paste and shift stuff around instead =)
So, after doing it once and making it completely non-linear, time jumping all over the place, I scrapped it, cos it was shit (altho…I think I kept the file, now that I think about it…might revisit that with fresh eyes…anywaaaay), and did it again, and it ended up being 40k long and I was happy with it (only shaved off 10k though *facepalm (actually… less than that because I wrote several new scenes too…))
I did that remix year by year, in chronological order, except, I interspaced scenes from the ‘current’ year with jumbled out of order scenes from 8th year (that had some minor relevance or linked theme to what was happening in the ‘current’ year), to give it a semi non-linear format. Cos why not? So it was like, [(scene from year 1) -> (scene from year 8) -> (scene from year 1)] repeat  for each year until a post-Hogwarts scene. (oh, and a really really small bit from the post-hogwarts scene was also at the beginning of each chapter until it all came together at the end and the full scene was shown….fuck it sounds so overly complicated doesn’t it? whatever, I love it, and it’s a self-indulgent fic so whatevs)
How cool would it be to reverse that, and do the entirety of 8th year as the bulk of the story (instead of non-linear fragmented scenes (I only used parts of scenes from the original version in the remixed version, rather than full scenes)) and interspace that with fragmented scenes from the previous 7 years? So [(Scene from 8th year) -> (scene from an earlier year, not chronologically) -> (scene from 8th year)] and repeat  until the post-Hogwarts scene, which is uninterrupted.
Am I creating a fuck tonne of overly complicated work for myself that I don’t need? Yeah…
But I’ve been in a weird editing/re-writing/ mood lately and I don’t wanna waste it because it’s better than feeling down
But damn, it’ll be fun to play around with this fic again, but also, it’s gonna take forever, and need tonnes of new scenes, because in the original version, each year had it’s own chapter, and 8th year only had 2 chapters (even if they were a bit longer), so it’s massively unbalanced…and the first remix took so long…and this one will definitely take longer…
Fuck it!! I love this fic!!
IMMA DO IT ANYWAY!
(but seriously, this new remix first, but then one day I REALLY need to write the spin off alternate 8th year where they touched in the fire and they go into 8th year with Harry knowing Draco is his soulmate and dealing with that, and finding out Draco has known since 1st year and never said anything, and was a total ass to him, while Draco is also dealing with being called a hero for what he did in the battle, and hating it, and having his life amongst the Death Eaters exposed and poked at, and being elevated further because of it, and YES YES YES ALL THE ANGST)
(Alsooooooo 8th year of the original version but from Harry’s pov…how cool would that be? Him still wondering who and where his soulmate is, knowing they are still alive, and wondering why they have never come for him when his soul-mark is splashed periodically across the papers and they couldn’t possible not know it was him, and why they don’t want him, while also slowly falling in love with Draco, but feeling so guilty about it, and also not knowing if Draco’s soulmate is alive, if he knows them, is waiting for them, or what and just FUCK ME UP I WANT THAT ANGST, like damn, it was already so angsty from Draco’s pov, but Harry’s has a different brand of angst that I wanna play with)
(…also still need to actually properly re-write the original version to my current standard too…cos I still love it to absolute bits no matter how many people were complete fucking assholes about it, and I wanna make it shinier)
(…..I think I’ll be writing different versions of this story for the rest of my life)
(…and at some stage I should probably post at least 1 version of it, but I am absolutely still petulant and stubborn after all the asshole comments the first time)
(…I shouldn’t be allowed in my fanfic folder after midnight…)
(…sorry for anyone who actually read this mess of a post…)
(…I should probably actually go to bed before even opening a new file to start this new remix…or I might not sleep at all tonight…this should be tomorrow’s project…)
