Napping In College Lectures Is Not Encouraged, But Is Expected. This, However? LOL.

Universities can sometimes expect you to be some sort of wizard that has mastered time and doesn’t need sleep. You go to class from 8am-6pm, then you go to work, then you go to your extra curricular activities. After that insanity, then you stay up till 4am doing homework, only to wake up the next day and start it all over again.

So, naturally, when you’re faced with a lecture in a quiet, dimly lit room there is a natural desire to sleep. That’s what this guy thought, but he decided to take it to the next level.

Someone’s a sleepy-bear.

I imagine it’d be hard to concentrate when someone is doing the only thing you want to do right now.

“That looks like a good idea…”–Some guy.

Maybe someone can give those guys the notes after class.

…I support what these guys are doing, though. Why do professors schedule the most boring lectures so early in the morning? I’m surprised more people don’t show up with cots and blankets.

Owners Caught A German Shepherd Hilariously Waking Up From A Deep Sleep.

We’ve all had those amazing deep sleeps where we’re dreaming away happily then something happens to wake us up. When we finally open our eyes, we’re dazed and confused. The line between sleeping and awake is seriously blurred for a few minutes.

It would seem dogs are no strangers to that feeling either, as hilariously displayed here by Dexter the German Shepherd, who awakes to the sounds of his owner laughing and for a while has the most confused look on his face.

They say you should let sleeping dogs lie, but if you don’t, then make sure to film it. It’s adorable and the world deserves to see it.

This Father Took Photos Of All The Places His Little Boy Fell Asleep. And It’s Hilarious.

When reddit user Scevans09 posted a gallery of his son sleeping, I expected it to be boring. We’ve all seen kids sleeping. But I’m pretty sure you’ve never seen a kid fall asleep in this many awkward, crazy positions. His naps are basically an artform – and one I’m jealous of. I want to fall asleep literally anywhere.

Just like him:

Sitting up in a chair.

Laying awkwardly.

On the kitchen chairs.

In the car, thinking.

Under his brother.

Mostly on the bed.

In a Jean Claude Van Damme split.

In mid-lunch.

While playing.

On the wrong part of the couch.

On the other wrong part of the couch.

Still on the wrong part of the couch.

Getting his haircut.

Still playing.

While reading.

On hardwood floors.

Here.

There.

How?

While waiting on food.

Interesting.

This is just talent.

Nice arm position.

This is physically possible?

Stop showing off.

While tuning out his parents. It worked.

Classy.

In the dirty clothes because why not?

Sitting up. He’s still got it.

While getting ready to play.

Awwwww.

Awwwwwwwwww.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Okay, kid. You win at sleeping.

Before you jump to conclusions that this kid is narcoleptic or has some serious other issue, his dad said the following:

“He had problems sleeping at night for awhile and then finally got his tonsils and adenoids out and has slept so much better since. I think that is why he would just crash all the time during the day.”

So, he’s all better but thankfully we have 34 brilliant photos of his epic nap-taking abilities. Share them with others below.
