    Default Sleep for good time?

    There are 2 simple questions

    1. a. I haven't slept for good time
    b. I haven't slept good time.
    c. I haven't slept well.

    Which sounds natural?

    2. Russell harnesses a wild sense of invention to bring us closer to ourselves.

    To bring us closer to ourvelves? what does that mean? It's not clear.

    It's not clear for me either. Context might help.

    "I didn't get enough sleep."

    I would say there's a difference between "I haven't slept well" and "I didn't get enough sleep". It's possible to sleep badly for many hours, but you could sleep very well for only 2 or 3 hours and say the latter.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
