74. Falling asleep in class
It is like torture!
Actually, I’m pretty sure it is. Have you ever seen those television shows where the cops are interrogating a suspect of a crime or something, and they keep the suspect awake in a dark room with a bright light shining down? …
The person usually looks tired, but they won’t allow a short nap! Staying awake when you are tired feels horrible, I would definitely spill my secrets in exchange for a nice long nap if I’m extremely tired.
One thing that I cannot get used to is that feeling when I am falling asleep in the middle of a lecture. My head begins to feel very heavy, I then begin to focus more on keeping my eyes open than on anything else. I readjust myself in my chair, rub my eyes, tell myself that I cannot fall asleep, but then something strange happens: I begin to convince yourself that a short, five second closing of the eyes will make me feel a lot better.
If you’re lucky, you will wake up on your own ten minutes later. If you’re not so lucky, the professor will wake you up.
It is extremely awkward to fall asleep in class. You risk many things, if you think about it.. drooling, doing the head-bobbing motion, and even snoring! And sure, your grades are at risk because you’re not focusing on your lectures, blah blah blah..
But the bobbing of the head! Who wants to be the center of attention by letting your head drop.. and then come back up, and then drop.. and then bringing it up once again. Everybody now! Let it drop, then pick it up! Yeeeah! Let it drop, then pick it up.. woo hoo! Get into it people! Someone give me a beat!
Let it drop, then pick it up.. Ooh yeah..
