Twinkie Chan’s Guide to Survival: POWER NAPS

I know a lot of people who say, “I can’t nap.” They can’t fall asleep, or they sleep too long, or they feel gross coming out the nap and never recover.

If I couldn’t nap, or if I refused to nap, I would DIE.

I feel like I’m still paying my dues, work-wise, and I still work a million hours a day. On deadline days, this leaves little time to sleep.

Last night, I slept from about 7:30am to 8:30am because I had a 9:30am meeting outside of the house. I had a deadline to finish a project and send it via UPS (4pm) anyway, so I was ok with this. But at about 1pm, I really needed a nap. So off I napped on the couch, from 1pm-2pm. Then, more work! Then I had a long-overdue crafty/pizza/chickflick hangout with Vivs. Then, I think I had a 45 minute nap around midnight. Then I was back up for more work. I feel pretty good, but I also had two cups of strong tea! VROOM VROOM!

Ok, clearly this is not a lifestyle, this is not good for you, and I wouldn’t do it everyday, (plus don’t tell your mom cuz she’ll yell at you) but I’m thankful I can function this way, because I really needed those extra hours of work. Thank you, body!

On a similar theme, here is a short video of Bibi snoring. I love how you can see her nose parts go in and out. She used to snore all the time as a puppy, and ten times more loudly. It used to worry me, but I looked up online that Shar Pei puppies may snore a lot when they are young, and then as their face parts grow out a bit, the snoring lessens, which was true for Bibi’s case. I find her snoring very comforting, though!

    aww cute. When my doggy, juliet naps and you lie next to her, she will kick you until you get off. It isn’t that adorable, more scary.

    I’ve had at least two dogs that snored just like that <3 its kinda cute

    naps…i used to never ever nap…but that's how i function when on deadlines since university started, but the day after I'm done is usually sleeep all day long

    Wow! Your a machine. I don’t think I could survive like that on naps. I just had a baby 5 weeks ago and I am struggling with the sleep I am getting now. I used to be a 9:30pm till 6pm kind of girl. Now I go to bed at about 10:30pm-11pm and am back up anytime between 2:30am-4am depending on when Imogen wants to feed. I wish I could function on less sleep. Heres hoping my body eventually gets used to it.

    You make me want to cuddle with my doggy Leeloo. (You’ve described my entire life the last month with writing 6 page papers nearly every week with my Ed Psych class, prepping for 4 shows that all occur within 8 weeks of each other, and teaching art at 5 million different places. )

  8. Monica Morrison says:

    Omg! I was crying literally 20 mins ago but after watching this i was laughing. I love bibi:)

  9. Lee says:

    Don’t drive when you don’t have enough sleep!

  10. YAY for warm cuddly doggie snores :)
    Loves!
    Im always afraid if I nap I won’t wake up – but I think I may try it and see how it goes :)

    I have a shar pei named Winston, and his snores when he was a tiny puppy were LOUD! He would wake me up at night, and i would have to rub his belly and turn his head a bit so he would quiet down. He also had hiccups all the time. If he wasn’t snoring, he was hiccuping. Crazy puppy sounds!
