This has been circulating around the Internet probably since I started college (if not even earlier). It’s also true! There is also a terrifying one for grad school that I’m going to choose to ignore for now because it frightens me.
But anyway, I’ve always chosen Enough Sleep and sort of oscillated between the other two. Especially being a commuter with a 30 minute drive to campus, it’s been imperative that I get enough sleep. And if not, enough coffee?
Anyway, I usually go to bed by 11 or 11:30. A lot of the time I’m just beat so I go to bed at 10. That is embarrassingly early. But I’m used to waking up around 7 or 7:30 in the morning, so I get a lot done before I have to go anywhere. Most of the time.
I realized, though, that practically nobody else is on this schedule. I tend to wake up and find that my inbox is exploding with emails sent after 11 PM, including several from my professors. This makes it awkward when said professors request that we do additional reading for the class I’m about to go to. Not going to happen!
GO TO BED, PEOPLE!
