I have had another revelation:
Getting the right amount of sleep will actually make you feel AWAKE. Also NOT TIRED. This is ridiculously exciting to me.
Yesterday in psychology class we did a "sleep debt" quiz and I scored as so high in sleep debt that my quality of life was suffering, as in I did not have any interest in things I once did. And it is TRUE! So last night I actually made myself to go sleep at 11:15 and woke up at 8:00am, so I had over eight hours of sleep! Yay!
My mom just rolled her eyes at how it took a psychology class to make me comprehend what she has been telling me my whole life. ^_^
