10 Sign You're Addicted To Napping

I think everyone can agree that sleep is a beautiful thing. It makes us happier, healthier, and all around a more pleasant person. Unfortunately for many, sleep is a hard thing to come by. Between work, school, or sports, who really has all the time to get the recommended eight hours? The simple solution to this problem is the beloved and the always useful nap.

Napping for college students has become an art form that we all take very seriously. To be honest, no one can ever get too much sleep. I believe napping should be encouraged and become a staple in everyone’s daily routine. Here are some signs that you too, are addicted to napping.

1. You wake up knowing when the next time you can sleep is.

Why bother making the bed when you know you're just going to get back in it?

2. You get motivated at the thought of getting back into your bed.

Sleep is the best motivation for any college student.

3. You always make sure to schedule naps into your day.

You have hours of being productive and hours dedicated for sleep and laziness. It's called balance, people.

4. You set alarms for the strangest times.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F03%2F21%2F6359412785247225511480875647_tumblr_mf9ai53Cxn1rzoi3uo1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=228&h=699594233e96d812cd49957d80a0efd037958709e6ac10ac9dfe81b313a18e91&size=980x&c=3313307497 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F03%252F21%252F6359412785247225511480875647_tumblr_mf9ai53Cxn1rzoi3uo1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D228%26h%3D699594233e96d812cd49957d80a0efd037958709e6ac10ac9dfe81b313a18e91%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3313307497%22%7D" expand=1]

And you no doubt have a page full of alarms on your phone.

5. You are constantly sending the text,"Sorry, I was asleep."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F03%2F21%2F635941281743928120-197232913_tumblr_mzz80kynsu1qj09eqo1_250.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=28&h=02f4f27011e8a7989b9d5bfce0be351c06c30d18efa873e67c27349b132d2848&size=980x&c=3321047466 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F03%252F21%252F635941281743928120-197232913_tumblr_mzz80kynsu1qj09eqo1_250.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D28%26h%3D02f4f27011e8a7989b9d5bfce0be351c06c30d18efa873e67c27349b132d2848%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3321047466%22%7D" expand=1]

Your friends expect nothing less at this point.

6. You can fall asleep within seconds.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F03%2F21%2F635941283826580592764288728_tumblr_lrw768gRNp1qegw8v.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=139&h=1a2aa5744c41227b7b4b619dddeb8e26e564da2dadb7e9f8c01ed954a4fe814c&size=980x&c=4060029742 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F03%252F21%252F635941283826580592764288728_tumblr_lrw768gRNp1qegw8v.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D139%26h%3D1a2aa5744c41227b7b4b619dddeb8e26e564da2dadb7e9f8c01ed954a4fe814c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4060029742%22%7D" expand=1]

The moment your head hits the pillow, it's lights out.

7. You keep the blinds closed all day.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F03%2F21%2F6359412868750562891382393538_tumblr_njyzi0whZq1tts3f4o1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=757&h=ef9d3c83d77d7f0528d7a1792906bec5d46f6d5cec9f4ee941a0da193f44348d&size=980x&c=2946077141 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F03%252F21%252F6359412868750562891382393538_tumblr_njyzi0whZq1tts3f4o1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D757%26h%3Def9d3c83d77d7f0528d7a1792906bec5d46f6d5cec9f4ee941a0da193f44348d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2946077141%22%7D" expand=1]

You keep your room in perfect sleep conditions 24/7.

8. You take more than one nap a day.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F03%2F21%2F635941287888203974-1803982992_63587361856675992045740662_everyone%2520needs%2520two%2520naps%2520a%2520day.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=919&h=7336feacccb97e96e3a12922a4cae8f4e1079da9995c1b4ba35959b7114b6882&size=980x&c=4146134968 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F03%252F21%252F635941287888203974-1803982992_63587361856675992045740662_everyone%252520needs%252520two%252520naps%252520a%252520day.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D919%26h%3D7336feacccb97e96e3a12922a4cae8f4e1079da9995c1b4ba35959b7114b6882%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4146134968%22%7D" expand=1]

It starts to become essential.

9. You can literally sleep anywhere.

It doesn't matter if you're in a car, plane, or bed, sleeping can happen anywhere.

10. You're probably reading this article from your bed.

All of us can agree that there is no better feeling than laying in bed. Sleep is a beautiful thing and should never be taken for granted. To all the nappers of the world, I salute you.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran.

Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

10 Reasons Coffee Is The Best In Honor Of National Coffee Day
https://www.pexels.com/photo/six-white-ceramic-mugs-1251175/

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
