14 Things Sleepy People Can Relate To
Business Insider

Some people like to sing, dance, eat–possibly all three–and some people even love to sleep. It’s not that we sleep-lovers never get enough hours of it or that we’re lazy. Our bodies just love sleeping too much! Letting our eyes and the rest of our body rest is one of our favorite things to do. Maybe you might not want to sleep most of the time, but even so, here are a few moments everyone who has ever been tired can relate to:

1. Closing your eyes and pretending to “think” when you’re actually sleeping.

2. Not understanding how others can get out of bed and function well with less than eight hours of sleep.

3. Being late to an event or class from oversleeping.

4. Scrolling through your phone in bed and having the phone fall on your face.

5. Turning down plans because you’d rather sleep instead.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F06%2F636166452585943404850789836_635720649116354719-808473499_i-need-my-beauty-sleep.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=63&h=de4c8b0ef08ef018e8cf6637cc2431369399ccbcd4d4791dca9724890c809eb5&size=980x&c=3903505398 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F06%252F636166452585943404850789836_635720649116354719-808473499_i-need-my-beauty-sleep.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D63%26h%3Dde4c8b0ef08ef018e8cf6637cc2431369399ccbcd4d4791dca9724890c809eb5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3903505398%22%7D" expand=1]

6. If you’re both hungry and tired, you choose sleep over a meal.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F06%2F636166435784242596895003962_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=444&h=714dafbf120de66c58d9015b074337ce32eff6c358ca157954611cedbd2f257b&size=980x&c=940165532 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F06%252F636166435784242596895003962_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D444%26h%3D714dafbf120de66c58d9015b074337ce32eff6c358ca157954611cedbd2f257b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D940165532%22%7D" expand=1]

7. Because if you choose to eat when you're still tired, you end up falling asleep in the middle of eating.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F06%2F636166436108433857624464694_1317143911_little_girl_falling_asleep_while_eating.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=475&h=61e1e709dfd1c882bd2972de8eba046e8e363b669cc4cfadc43847910b9c274f&size=980x&c=391803167 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F06%252F636166436108433857624464694_1317143911_little_girl_falling_asleep_while_eating.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D475%26h%3D61e1e709dfd1c882bd2972de8eba046e8e363b669cc4cfadc43847910b9c274f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D391803167%22%7D" expand=1]

8. Being the victim in all the asleep-with-an-open-mouth photos.

9. Telling yourself you’d be better at your craft if you didn’t always take so many naps.

10. Looking forward to the end of the day so you can take a nap.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

3377

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
