Following four days of “no homework,” college essays, and slightly more free time than usual, senior Marley Ray reported this weekend having received the recommended amount of sleep (according to Wikipedia) for the first time in years.
Ray described the extra sleep as unintentional. “I went to bed around 11:35,” she said. “And by the time I woke up, it was already 10:16 in the morning. I was like ‘woah, did I actually just get a healthy amount of sleep?’” She said she couldn’t recall being in bed for more than four hours since around freshman orientation in 2012.
After realizing the great feat she had accomplished, Ray was reportedly feeling “rejuvenated, energetic, and ready to take on the world,” and she wondered if “this is what life actually feels like.”
At press time Ray was rapidly losing energy as the realization that she had two tests, an essay, and hours of homework due later that week dawned on her.
