After three years of IMSA, I’ve taken my fair share of naps during my free mods (and sometimes even during my classes!). Throughout my experiences, I’ve kept track of the absolute best places to take a nap. Some people might say that it’s 1508, and some others might even suggest going back to your dorm room to sleep in your comfy bed. However, they’re all wrong. Here is the definitive list of the best places to recover from your third all-nighter in a row.
1. On the staircase
Save your friends from exhaustion. If they can’t get past you, they can’t get to class.
2. Inside of the family bathroom
This one is prime for ditching class. No one will find you here as long as you remember to flip the sign to occupied.
3. Inside of a trash can
Pitch. Black. Relaxation.
4. Inside of Dr. Eysturlid’s Office
He might remember it at Ethics, but it’s worth the rest.
5. In CompuSci
All of the code takes forever to run, and you’re probably exhausted from the all-nighter you pulled to debug your still broken code.
6. Right outside of the attendance office
Hiding in plain sight. You can’t get attendance points when you ditch class to nap if Ms. Bazan can’t find you.
7. In the fitness center
Working out is exhausting, and the benches are pretty comfy… Plus! No one will ever expect to find you there.
8. On the 04 basketball court
Even better if there’s a game happening. The soft sound of the ball hitting the concrete will put you right to sleep.
Happy sleeping, and remember to get nine hours of sleep each night!
I’d like to extend a thank you to Ajay Jayaramnan (‘20) for helping compile this list and for “napping” in each spot.
