I glared at my broken android screen, counting the second till I could yank it away from the charger cord, jump on my bed, and start my usual ritual of scrolling through social media at midnight, while the rest of the world was asleep, enjoying my glo night plan.
How will tonight’s session be? I wonder to myself. Will I stumble on the profile of some super star and spend the night poring over their pictures till the waves of sleep take me away by force. Or perhaps a blog with very interesting content I’d read and read till my eyes get to heavy to open.
I pace around the room, the last time I checked it was 11:47 and checking back it’s 11:52, does this time really move I wander to myself. I go into the toilet and seat on the cold water closet seat, and I feel the urine coming out of my vagina. I close my eyes and begin to count in my head, in a bid to pass time.
After satisfying myself, I walk out of the toilet and check my phone, it’s 11:59 and I do my ritual of counting down time till it gets to 12am. At exactly 12am, a message pops up on my screen, ‘CONGRATS ! Your Night_100 plan has been activated!’. I swipe, dismissing the message, and also swipe down on my notification settings. My phone is a 100%.
I slowly remove my phone from the chord and creep under my mosquito net, and under my blankets. I can already sense that it is going to be a long night.
