Just a quick little post.
I feel like it’s insane how many college students push themselves to stay up until ridiculous times of the night in order to finish projects or study for tests. I’m not going to pretend I don’t do it, because I do. And I really hate it.
Mostly because I find it counterproductive. There is a certain point past which no real work can be done anymore. Your brain refuses to come up with smart ideas in a bid to force you to sleep.
I have a name for this magical point. I call it 2:00 am.
Once the clock hits 2:00 am, every single idea you have is officially stupid. You can go ahead and still have ideas if you want, just know that they are stupid. They cannot be proven to not be stupid unless you go to sleep, get a good amount of sleep, wake up, review your stupid ideas, and then make a logical decision whether or not the idea truly is stupid or not.
Why am I writing this? Because it’s currently past 2:00 am, and I’m currently stupid. Posting this on my blog was a stupid idea. You are reading the output of a stupid man right now.
Seriously though, despite how stupid I am at this moment, consider setting limits on how late you stay up. If you spend all night studying for that important exam, you’ll end up doing horrible because you are so tired during the actual exam.
Get some sleep people.
(If you do get enough sleep, good for you. The rest of us hate your guts. Sorry about that.)
