10 Sign You're Addicted To Napping
UBC Underground

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.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

4654
www.semipartisansam.com

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
