How does anyone get through school?? How the hell does anyone get through college as an engineer or scientist?? I have no free time to myself - and that INCLUDES sleeping. I get like 4 hours a night, and I take naps for like 1 or 2 hours during the day whenever I get a chance. I'm living off coffee and soda to help me stay awake. Somehow, my schedule is such that I start at 8:30 twice a week, 9:00 3 times a week, and I end at around 4:30-6ish. My classes are just evenly spaced so I have no real significant breaks. Why the hell are all the harder engineering, math, and science classes in the morning?? I don't understand what they are thinking when differential equations is scheduled for 8:00 am, but Accounting 101 is twice a week for an hour at 1pm. It's ridiculous!! So besides my rant, I have a question. Is taking a nap for 2 hours or for 4 hours, but not less or more, better than sleeping for 3 hours if you have the chance? My roommate swears by this, and takes naps in 2 hour intervals when he can. He says he feels better, but when I try it, it doesn't work. I understand there's some science to this idea - that it has to do with the stages of sleep. Is it true? Well, off to the library to study for my physics and circuit exams, which of course are tomorrow, one right after the other. Thanks.
