BORING THINGS I DO TO TRY TO FALL ASLEEP

I'm not a very good sleeper.
  1. Name the 50 states in alphabetical order.
  2. Name the 50 states in reverse alphabetical order.
  3. Name all the states that end in A.
  4. Name academic subjects for every letter in the alphabet.
  5. At this point I'm screwed. I go find a an episode of Teri Gross on the Middle East, and wonder before losing consciousness why I didn't think of that in the first place.
