I don't understand why I fight myself to stay up so late when I'm so tired all day long. 

I don't understand why people eat at Applebee's and Chili's and other places that have the same. damn. thing. all. the. time. when there are so many other choices out there.

I don't understand why what I know for sure is so different that what I practice daily.

I don't understand why Siri seems so smart in commercials but is such an idiot in real life.

I don't understand why words come more easily to me when I type then when I speak.

I don't understand why people screw over those who've done something good for them.

I don't understand why Erin's teachers requested a box of NutriGrain bars as 'healthy snacks' for test time.

I don't understand why thinking hard and doing good don't burn calories. Shouldn't karma factor in there?

I don't understand the subjects my oldest studies at school.

I don't understand why I make grocery lists and then leave them on my desk when I go to the store.

I don't understand why I oversleep on school mornings when my kids are home, but wake up at ungodly hours when they're not here and I could technically sleep in.

I don't understand why I forget how much fun fun can be, and why I put so many other non-fun things in front of enjoying life.

I don't understand why I go back and forth on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest when there's obviously nothing more important on any of them that is more important than my real life.

Inspired by Stream of Consciousness Sunday (#SOCSunday). The concept: set a timer, write for five minutes, publish. Brain dump style, no editing. Publish. Share. Link up at Jana's Thinking Place and check back there for next week's theme. This week's is 'what I don't understand'.
