    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;

    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...

    I Thought I Was The Only One!

    Everyone I know find naps to be refreshing to them, but I hate the feeling of waking up after a nap. Ever since I ceased to be a child, naps just make me feel super tired and weak. Not to mention I wake up feeling super nauseated and often throwing up. Plus, an hour nap for me...
