It’s here. Finals week is finally upon us. A time full of panic, misery, all-nighters, and too much coffee for one body to handle.
This is you currently:
That’s just no way to live. You’re probably not getting enough sleep, but have no fear. I have the perfect solution for you: Naps.
“But my roommate is studying,” you say. “I can’t nap in my room! Where else could I possibly go?”
Don’t you worry for another second. Here is Kara’s Top 10 Places in (or around) Bailey Hall to Nap.
Number 10: The Laundry Room
Pros: It’s warm here.
Cons: Too many people coming and going. People get mad when they can’t get to the washers. Loud. Uncomfortable.
Number 9: Elevator
Pros: Constant motion should lull you into a peaceful sleep.
Cons: You might be stepped on. If you forget your ID you’re not going anywhere.
Number 8: On the Reception Desk
Pros: If you’re expecting a package, you don’t have to go very far.
Cons: Someone else might be expecting a package.
Number 7: The Greenhouse
Pros: Peaceful. If you’re willing to lay in dirt, it’s quite comfortable.
Cons: Compost smells bad and it’s way too cold.
Number 6: On the Treadmill
Pros: The worn treadmill gives you something comfortable to sleep on.
Cons: So. Much. Sweat.
Number 5: The Fishbowl
Pros: Usually pretty clean, usually pretty quiet.
Cons: Everyone can see you.
Number 4: A Unisex Bathroom
Pros: You can close the door and have the place to yourself.
Cons: Risky. Might smell. Might not be clean.
Number 3: Third Floor Commons
Pros: Quiet. Clean.
Cons: People come here to study, and part of the point of napping is to avoid studying, not get closer to it.
Number 2: With the Recycling.
Pros: As a RISE kid, you should feel truly at home and peaceful among the recycling.
Cons: With everything precariously perched, the recyclables might fall on you.
Number 1: The RISE Office
Pros: Plenty of places to choose from. During the day it’s pretty quiet. Laurie and Heather might join you.
