8 Stages Every Non-Morning Person Goes Through When Waking Up

I hate using this excuse, but it is valid. I am not a morning person.

8 Stages Every Non-Morning Person Goes Through When Waking Up

I really wish I could say that I am a morning person. I really wish that I had a great sleeping schedule. I really wish that one day, this will all change. However, I am just going to complain about how I hate waking up in the morning.

Mornings are hard for me. I have to wake up and get ready for classes and the day ahead. That makes me just want to curl back into bed and be lazy. I cannot do that though. I have priorities.

1. The night before...

This sums up my alarm list before I go to bed every night. I will set alarms, and back up alarms, and back up alarms for the backup alarms. This is no joke people.

2. Trying to fall asleep

Nothing aggravates me more than not being able to sleep. I am always tired because of the long days at school and work. All I want to do is fall asleep! That never happens...it will take me, what feels like hours, to finally fall asleep after being in bed.

3. And it begins...

The first alarm goes off, but it does not phase me. I remain asleep not knowing I have an alarm attempting to wake me up multiple times.

4. Wake up, back to sleep freak out

During this stage, the alarm will go off and I finally wake up, I look at the time and tell myself, "I can sleep five more minutes". I wake up again, but it is past five minutes. However, I will tell myself again, "Okay, I can sleep for an extra five minutes, but I have to hit the ground running when I wake up". When I wake up, I am already about to be late.

5. The corner of death

After actually getting up, I will literally sit on the edge of my bed contemplating about life. "Should I go to class?...Yes, I have too, but it is so hard to get up!"

6. It finally hit me that I am running late

Once I realize I am running late, I attempt to be the best at multitasking. I try to brush my teeth, put on clothes, do my hair all at once. Most of the time, it does not work out how I plan it to be.

7. Zooooom zooooooooom!

I hate driving fast because I am late, but sometimes I cant hold it in. I NEED TO GET TO CLASS!

8. "No need to go to the gym, I got my workout in"

As soon as I am done parking my car, I am literally sprinting to class. By the time I get to the classroom, I am out of breath, wheezing, and all that fun stuff. There is my workout for the day.

Maybe...just maybe one day I will get a routine down. My advice to those who have the same experiences as I do in the morning, go to sleep early to wake up early. Yes, it is easier said than done, but change will not take place unless you begin to make the change.

P.S. I never make it to breakfast

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
