I’ve learned many great things here at the College, like how to run an international video conference in Japanese, or how to convince a visiting CEO that my team’s marketing strategy is both cost-effective and creative. Surprisingly, though, one of the most useful things I’ve learned here is how to function on very little sleep.
This came in handy today, for example, as last night I passed out at 2:00 am, woke up at 5:00 am, drank some tea, and churned out a case study for my 8:00 am class, Organizational Behavior. I suppose I could have finished it last night, but instead I was in the Swem Media Center laying down some tracks for my band Swampblossom‘s latest single, “Grey Blue”. I guess I also could have written it before the recording sesh, but between running from class to class and grabbing a bite to eat at The Grind with friends, there just didn’t seem to be enough time.
This is a typical day for me here at the College. I like to stay busy and involved—whether it’s making lattes at The Grind on the weekends, playing gigs at The Crust, or hunkering down for an afternoon of studying in Swem, there’s never a dull moment. And you know what? Even though things get hectic (and I am officially addicted to caffeine), I wouldn’t trade one minute of my busy day for more sleep.
Besides, that’s what Sundays are for!
