5 Things You Know If You're A Night Owl

"I'll sleep when I'm dead" is something you say a lot.

People all have different routines when it comes to sleep schedules, and I totally respect that. Some people need a full 10 hours, and some get by with 3 - 5 on a good night. Some people can get up at the crack of dawn and be a functioning human; I am not one of those people. Here are 5 things you know if you're a night owl like me.

1. 11 p.m. onward is your prime.

It’s like a light kicks off, and your brain turns on. You can focus better, and actually, understand what you’re studying. Midnight to 1 a.m. is your power hour, and somehow despite procrastinating all day, you get everything done. It’s honestly a talent.

2. You haven’t gone to bed before 1 a.m. since 2015.

I’ve never understood people that are able to sleep before the hour of 10 or 11. How does your brain shut off? That’s when mine is beginning to race.

3. Mornings are your own version of hell.

Why are beds so comfy? Why would you want to leave the warmth of your cocoon? First rule: Do not talk to me until after 9:30 at the bare minimum. People that can get up at 5, 6 a.m. and be a functioning and happy human… are a foreign species. I do not understand them at all.

4. Coffee is lifeblood. Take it away and you die.

Somehow I ended up in an 8 a.m. class as a senior, something I vowed never to do. And yet, here I am. How do I make it to class, and remain a functioning human the rest of the day, you ask? I don’t. I’m always late to that class and am a shell of a person until I get a grande coffee with a minimum of two shots of espresso. Note: I don’t even like coffee, but in order to not be a zombie, it’s my lifeblood.

5. You never learn.

Despite being a zombie during the day, when 11 p.m. hits again, you think maybe I should go to bed so I won’t be so tired tomorrow. Then you laugh and stay up until 2. #TeamNoSleepStrikesAgain

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
