College Thinking #4

Decide to get up at 8 am in the morning to work. Alarm rings at 7:50. Get up and look at the clock. It read 8:05. Whoops looks like I missed it better set alarm to 9:00. 

The hardest decision I’ve had to make

So my freshmen roommate just turned 21 and after a night of rocking out at the local bars he hits me up. Of course the moment he comes in (South U. Pizza in hand of course), I could already tell, he has about 5 minutes before he passes out, he was my freshman roommate after all. Like clock work, he is fast asleep on my couch, and here comes the crux of my problem.

What do I do to my o so so so vulnerable friend?

On one hand I could be a good friend and just leave him alone. However I did put a jacket on him, and put a nice cup of water nearby for when he wakes up, so I already did my good friend deed, now time to do my bad friend deed. But should I? He is a really good friend, but so am I. And what kind of good friend would let one pass out drunk, and not wake up with a story to tell about “that asshole friend”? My Sophie’s choice, what to do what to do….

What? Do it? Ok, I’ll listen to you guys, just this once ok ( this is the dialoge I had with my inner voice)?

So now I’m presented with another problem, life as a college student is just problem after problem, what do I do to him? Hm…time to consult the almighty Google. Wow. there are a lot of websites dedicated to this. Shoot I hear him stirring, time is of the essence, CARPE DIEM. well kinda. Anyway I’ll let you know what I come up with.

However before I go I have to wonder, or make you wonder, what would you do?

There is no such thing as “just a nap”

Have you ever had a break in between your classes? You’re at home and you think to yourself well I have like 25 minutes until my next class, I’ll just close my eyes and rest for a little bit, make sure I’ll be well rested for my next class. THIS IS A TRAP. IF YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES, YOU WILL NOT OPEN THEM UNTIL 30 MINUTES AFTER YOUR CLASS HAS ENDED. If, by some miracle you are able to open them, you will reach class even more dead then before your “nap”.

There is no such thing as taking a nap, or a power nap, it is a lie some heartless bastard out there made up to watch college kids suffer. The reason is because we, as college students, undeniably do NOT get enough sleep. Sleep is our drug, we need it, and when we don’t have it, we crave it, and when we do have it we want more, and more, and more, and then we miss our class.

However there IS a way to nap properly and not look/ feel like the living dead, more on that later.

College Thinking #2

Why is it every time I fall on my bed on top of my blankets with my clothes on I can fall asleep in .02 seconds flat, but when I’m all showered, cleaned, and under my blanket with the pillow in the right position I can’t fall asleep to save my life?

Dumb things college students do #4

I sit in the front of my discussion as to participate in class and not fall asleep. So tired I fall asleep anyway. Basically I sit in the front, and give my professor front row tickets to my battle to stay awake, and struggle I may, but my efforts are sometimes for not as I just literally pass out with my head up. Perfect.
