I never had nap time when I was little. Maybe that’s because I never went to pre-school.
I started regularly taking naps in college. My bed time in college was anywhere between 3 and 4 am, so naturally I instituted a daily siesta after my morning classes and lunch.
In graduate school I didn’t have time to nap. At one point (when I was working full-time and in school) I was commuting every which way, waking up at 5:30 AM to work out, leaving for work by 7:00 AM, leaving for class by 2:45 PM, getting home by 10:30 PM and asleep by 11 PM. I’m still not quite sure how I fit in meals, regular exercise, and studying in that schedule but I was surprisingly more efficient with my time.
I started taking naps again since we began our new student orientations this summer. I don’t know what it is about those all day orientations that completely wipes me out. I’m either getting 1) OLD or 2) more introverted.
And I think it’s time for my nap.
