The dean of students recently made an announcement to my school body that you need 9.25 hours of sleep a night for your brain to function at its highest potential. I rarely, if ever, get that much sleep. This fun little fact made me wonder what would happen if I started to make a concerted effort to sleep more and tinker less. Would I get better grades? Would I make better decisions? Probably not. As I read the Twilight books the one thing that stuck with me the most was the jealousy I felt for the vampires who never had to sleep. Yet, the amount of time I spend sleeping isn't wasted time at all. Sometimes, dreams can be the most inspiring media. Other times you go to bed with that one lingering question and in the morning you know the answer. While I will never commit to sleeping 9.25 hours a night, I can recognize that, whether I like it or not, some of the best things happen while sleeping.
