RANT – Sleep is WEIRD

Here is a little rant on sleep.

We’ve come many weeks through this campaign and this has got me thinking. Out of all the weird facts that we have come to realise, out of all the videos we have posted, I can only find one major common factor.



Have you ever wondered why we sleep? It is to help our bodies to rest and reset itself but think about how much time it takes. We spend nearly 1/3 of our lives sleeping! Imagine what we could do with that extra time! I once heard of a woman who didn’t sleep for a whole year, I think it was in the Guinness World Records or something. But wow, I don’t know how she survived or frankly, what she did with her time!

Don’t get me wrong, being students ourselves, we have had our fair share of all-nighters, but it was only because of last minute assignments or even a party here or there (yes, some of us do have lives – or at least pretend to).

Have you ever had that feeling of not being able to sleep and having managed to stay up, you realise there is so much time at night that you have been sleeping away? So much in fact that you don’t know what to do with it. You are amazed at the silence flooding the hallways in your house.

Do you hear that?

No, of course you don’t.

Silence. Absolute silence.

You walk towards the front door and press your ear against its surface.

It feels cold but soothing.

Nothing. There is nothing.

No traffic, no footsteps.

You pull away from the door. The thought of the empty night air seems eerie.

Suddenly, you hear a crash.

It sounds like something off the garage roof or the gutter.

That kind of metal sound.

You pause, frozen in your tracks.

You wait.

Your eyes still glued in the direction of the sound.

A cat screeches.

You relax.

You are relieved.

Your limbs are working again.

You head upstair and hop back into bed.

This was random but I hope it was a little different from all our posts! Thank you for reading No Snooze, You Lose! We hope we have been helpful! We hope we can continue posting on here more regularly in the future!
