At some point, we've all experienced a sleepless night. Painfully attempting to quit tossing and turning can get you to fall asleep. Although you've probably experienced this a couple of times in your life, insomnia is something a little different. If you've ever been offered the pieces of advice or told any of the statements below, you might just be in the ranks of those who suffer from insomnia.

1. "You should try to go to bed earlier."

Well, first of all, it's not that easy, trust me if we could we would. Even if we do go to bed early just means we're gonna wake even sooner.

2. "You sleep a lot."

Sorry to bother you with my sleeping, but on nights insomnia hits hard and I have to work the next morning I am going to nap. So, please do not disturb.

3. "You look exhausted."

Well thank you. Sorry they don't make good enough make-up to hide the craters under my eyes.

4. "Maybe lay off caffeine."

DO NOT TELL ME HOW TO LIVE MY LIFE. Caffeine is the batteries of an insomniacs life. When we need a charge, you better part ways because if we can't reach the caffeine you will get hurt.

5. "I've heard lavender works wonders."

You're wrong. As much as I spend on aromatherapy from Bath & Body, all it does is make you smell good.

6. "Just get really drunk and you'll fall asleep instantly."

That's not even healthy. Seems more like a night of regrets. Although you probably passed out, only God knows the photos your friends took during that time and it will haunt you forever. So no thank you.

7. "Have you tired Melatonin?"

We probably have a list of different brands and strengths that don't work. Then when we take the gummies we swallow the whole bottle like it's candy.

8. "Have you tried *medication name*?"

Are you a doctor? You are not my doctor so please don't give me medical advice.

9. "Have you tried working out?'

If anything this will make things worse because working out makes you sweaty and then you have to shower which will make you wide awake.

10. "I fall asleep at the drop of a hat."

Well sorry not everyone was crafted by the gods. Satan must have been like I'm gonna test this one and make her sleep hell.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
