    I Don't Get It

    Every time I take a nap, I always feel more tired than I was before. Then when I try to go to bed later, it's really difficult to fall asleep... so, what's the point? O___o;

    Not So 'powerful'

    I'm usually the kind of person

    that doesn't take naps. Compared to everyone in the family, me and my mom are the only ones that don't even take a nap throughout the day due to the fact that we're both light sleepers. About a month ago, I took my first nap in years, lasting only about 30 minutes. It took...
