Dear Freshman Me: Get Some Sleep

Dear Freshman Me: Let me tell you a story from next month. I’m sure you’re excited to visit your older brother for a Michigan State Football game in a few weeks.

In fact, you’ll actually wake up at 3 a.m. because you’re used to only getting four or five hours of sleep, and you should be waking up by now if you were in bed by 10:30 p.m. On this night, you’ll get twice as much sleep as you’ve gotten any night all semester.
