                Sleep has to be one of my favorite things to do. I sleep as much as possible. Sleeping is good for you in so many ways, it rejuvenates you, you grow while you're doing it, and you have these amazing dreams that correlate with what you have learned in that day. Sleeping takes much of the things from your short-term memory and puts them into long term memory. I recently read an article on dreaming, and it was found that dreams may be correlated with learning. The study was done on two types of people, people who played Tetris before going to bed, and people who did something that had nothing to do with Tetris. The scientists then watched their brain waves and saw that the people who played Tetris had a lot more brain activity going on. They also did better when they played Tetris.. That is pretty awesome if you ask me, so if you want to learn something fast, study it before going to bed.

                And then, we have the kind of sleeping that is not enjoyable, drunk sleeping. Now before you get to this point, sleep is probably the most amazing sounding thing in the world. All I ever want to do when I am at that one stage of my drunken stupor is sleep. But when you get there, it's gone before you know it, simply to be replaced by a sensitivity to heat, light and sound. Sleep always sounds nice, and sometimes it is, but not after drinking. There are no good dreams, nothing. It's a limbo for 8 hours and if you forget to take off your shoes... You're just fucked... You might as well draw penises all over yourself and spray whipped cream everywhere. It is something I fear greatly when drinking, I make sure to take off my shoes and even do it subconsciously when I don't know what the fuck is going on. I don't want to be on the receiving end of an antiquing.
                                                     Is this what the fuck you want?!?!?!

                Regardless of all these terrible things, sleep will always be cherished by me, and I am currently writing this because I am only getting six hours of sleep tonight, and it may not seem like much now, but when I truly begin working at a collegiate level, I fully expect to spend many more hours awake than sleeping.
        As a side note, I think I am slightly odd when I don't get sleep. The effects are akin to that of alcohol, I get giggly and laugh at generally anything. I forget how to whisper and walk in a straight line and I am quite sure I slur my words... So as you can see, there are more reasons for me to sleep other than how awesome it feels to sleep.


  1. Yeah, I get the same way from lack of sleep some times. It's the adrenalin keeping you awake. I love to sleep too, unless I want to stay away, but when I'm asleep I want to stay asleep.

  2. yeah sleep is great, good post man!
