It says in the medical journals that to function properly people need at least 6-7 hours of sleep but in college students survive on caffeine. So how do college students function? Well as a college student myself this week I have not gotten a lot of sleep. Every night I went to sleep around 2 or 3 a.m. and woke up at 7a.m. in the morning. I kept this up for a week but at the end of it I was exhausted and sick. After my test on Wednesday I went to sleep at 7p.m. and woke up the next day at 11:30 a.m. I missed my two morning classes and my five alarms on my phone and on top of everything I had three missed calls that I did not hear. I was so surprised that I did not hear my alarms and the phone calls that I received. I guess that my mind and body was so tired from all the late night studying that it finally said that enough is enough after my test was over. I was angry that I had missed my classes but I felt a lot better after I got the sleep that I needed so I was ok with the fact that I missed classes because I can always get the notes from someone from class but I can not get my health back. So form now on I am going to try and get the sleep I need everyday instead of once a week.
