Sleep: What You're Doing Wrong
Karnavir Rana

So it's Sunday night, 4 AM you're up doing homework and you cannot sleep because you need to get it done. This was me, all the time, this is all I did, I used to stay up, pull all nighters all the time and sleep in till 11 in the morning. This was until I changed one thing that created time for me to do everything and still have time left over.

When I came back from India after winter break, I was really jet lagged, this made me wake up at six AM the first few days of school, and when I did, I realized why waking up early is so helpful for my day.

On some days, my earliest class was at 9 am, on others it was at 1 pm, but even if at nine, I would have three hours of time to plan my day and do my homework before my class. It made me realize that just because it was morning, I was much more productive, I managed to overcome my procrastination, the main reason being I wasn't aching to go to bed, instead I really wanted to get out of bed because I had eight hours of sleep in me already.

Also, I realized that after 9 pm, I am not productive at all. I feel like I have the whole night so I'm constantly on my phone and getting distracted by friends. In the morning, however, I realized that since nobody was awake I was able to finish quite a bit of work in two hours, that would've taken me four to complete at night.

Most CEOs, whether from General Motors, Xerox or even Apple are early risers. It is the way they get the most out of their day. I'm sure that if you were to try it, it would benefit you tremendously.

Sleep early, I double dare you.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
