12 Things You Can Do Instead of Taking A Nap

Why nap when you can do so many productive things?

12 Things You Can Do Instead of Taking A Nap
The Huffington Post

Instead of sleeping your day away, here are some suggestions on how you COULD spend some of your free time:

1. Catch up on homework.

Because in college even when you feel like you're caught up and done for the week, you never are.

2- Get a good workout in.

Because the key to a long and happy life is a happy and healthy body...Or something like that.

3. Go socialize.

Friends!!!!! We all need some of those.

4. Organize your life.

Now is your chance to get your planner up to date with sticky notes and highlighters, whatever it is that will help you get your ish together.

5. Read some books.

Reading is good for the mind and soul. They can expand your vocabulary and get your brain juices flowing.

6. Go enjoy the great outdoors.

Mother Nature! Fresh air, pretty trees, creepy crawly bugs- All things beneficial to your body and mind.

7. Buy something.

I am a firm believer that shopping can fix any and all problems. PLUS there's an opportunity to get a good little workout in with a couple laps around the mall.

8. Do yoga.

Yoga calms the mind and limbers the body. Try it.

9. Eat good food.

One that is not only necessary, but my personal favorite. Try something new or channel your inner chef and cook something up on your own.

10. Crafts

Hit up your local Hobs Lobs for some super creative crafting gear and get to work.

11. Netflix your life away.

Netflix never fails and you can always find a show to binge watch if you feel the need

12. Think about how badly you want to take a nap.

Consider all the productive things you could accomplish instead of napping. Naps take up so much time that could be spent to get stuff done.

After deep consideration of all the things that you could do instead of napping, acknowledge the fact that most ideas listed would be better executed if you were well rested, give in, and get you some much-needed sleep. Try again tomorrow.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
