Best Napping Spots at UMD

I have done all 5!

Best Napping Spots at UMD

Currently, I'm a commuter to college, and it's not so bad once you get "used" to it. But, to be honest, it's exhausting. I have to wake at 5 am just to catch a 6:45 bus to reach my 9:30 am class. I reach campus at 7:30 and at that point I just need a good nap to be awake for class! But, one of the best perks coming early to college is picking the best spots to nap at! So here the 5 best napping spots at UMD. Trust me, I have done all five!

1. McKeldin Library

McKeldin is HUGE and has 7 floors. So, if you're feeling sleepy but want some quiet study space too, I recommend getting one the upper-level study spaces or maybe a bench! It's quiet and you won't be disturbed if you're napping or studying. PLUS, not many people are there so, you pretty much have the whole floor to yourself! Just don’t get too crazy!

2. Stamp Couches

I like napping at Stamp because my bus gets off there so I don't have to walk too far in the cold. Plus, FOOD! Stamp has a variety of fast food choices and sometimes food is the perfect pick-me-up after a nap and a couple of breakdowns. Hang in there! The semester is almost over!

3. Tawes Hall

You know that essay you wrote last night at like 2 am? Well, Tawes Hall is just the perfect place to get a quick power nap in the undergraduate lounge. It’s quiet, comfy pillows and you can get that essay checked at the Writing Center which is nearby! Just don't sleep through your appointment!

4. Knight Hall

As a journalism student, we have the luxury of having our lounge with some comfy couches. It's perfect since I have my first class there and space to do work too. There is also our "Off the record cafe" So if you didn't have breakfast, need a nap and need a place to write that story? Knight Hall is just the place!

5. WMUC radio station (Above south campus dining hall)

As a journalism student, I volunteer at WMUC college park radio station sometimes. I must say the vibe there is absolutely amazing. I really love just chilling and working on my script or homework. I can just tune in to the station and just chill. It has a creative energy and the couches are so comfy I can't help but take a nap. I usually just go into the back rooms and sleep there for a little while.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
