I’m readying myself for the Pharmacology exam today, all I want to do is … nap. As a student, I’ve realized, you nap extensively. I have often wondered why I feel so exhausted when I’m doing “so much less” than I did in my previous, adult life. However! As it turns out, I am not the only one who needs to nap to carry on and achieve mental and studious success. See below for others who have made napping a crucial part of their success (or so I’m choosing to believe), and please send me positive vibes for my second midterm today!
