Chronicles Of A Sleeper: Summer Addition

I ask this question honestly: who does not like to sleep? If anyone answered "me" then I do not think we are from the same planet. I have absolutely no problem going to bed at 8:30 then happily sleeping until 8:00 the next morning. Yes, I sleep like a toddler and I have no issue with it. Although this ability to sleep may seem childish and not normal, I find it okay. When people ask me if I feel like I am missing out on things by sleeping 11 hours a night, I can confidently respond "Nope!" If I don't sleep enough I am considerably more cranky and moody the next day and all around don't feel as lively. My bed is also one of my favorite places.

Any car ride longer than 35 minutes puts me to sleep. Upon arrival to the destination, I wake up refreshed and ready for the rest of the day. I do love power naps. If I find myself dragging or not excited for what the day has in store, it generally means that I need just about 10 minutes of alone time in the dark with my pillow and covers, or a welcoming couch or floor if I really just need some horizontal time.

Maybe my ability to love sleep is due to my battle with mono in the school year, and the 6th sense to feel when my body could be at risk of a relapse, or my body's ability to react to any and all allergens in the air. It could be because my dad, a grown man, still sleeps an average of eight hours a night with no trouble. I thank him for this trait.

When people describe how they only need four to five hours of sleep a night to function, I gasp because I cannot imagine such a life. When I was going to work at 7:30am, my sleep schedule did not suffer because I still managed to sleep at least eight hours a night. I usually woke up to hundred of text messages from a silenced group chat that occurred between the hours of 10:30pm and 12:30am when I was in deep sleep.

Put me in front of a movie in a dark room on a comfy couch or chair and be prepared to be next to a nodding off girl who just really loved the wonder of sleep. I will admit that I fell asleep during the seventh movie of Star Wars, and Mocking Jay Part II.

This article is a shout out to all those like me who really love to sleep. Keep going what you're doing, it's truly a beautiful thing.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
