When I think of college students I think of staying up until early mornings and sleeping in past noon. Well, for me that staying up part is right, but I do not get to sleep past noon. Typically, I have to be up by six o’clock every morning, but Sundays. I can not wait for Sunday mornings to come around because that is one of the only days of the week I get to sleep in until eight. Yes, I just said eight, most people think sleeping in is like from eleven to two; yet that is not the case for me. I would do anything for eight to nine hours of sleep every night. There are times I just want to come home and take a nap, but I have other places to be since I tend to “spread myself to thin”.
With all my other activities going on I am up until past 11 o’clock doing homework and catching up on my reading for my four classes. There are way too many other activities going on in my life that takes up to much time from my studying. Although, when I do get a night off I want to hang out with my boyfriend; however, I fall asleep by nine because I am so exhausted. I feel bad, but he has to understand that sometimes I just need my sleep. Sometimes I even put off my homework and studying just to get a few extra minutes of sleep.
Just keep in mind when you are tired these tips, like no caffeine and exercising at least 30 minutes a day, can help you not be so tired during the day; although, sometimes we are told to do these to stay awake. Hopefully some of my activities end soon so I can get more sleep.
