Sleeping During Class
SLEEPING DURING THE LECTURE
Health is wealth and healthy minds represent healthy nations. Sleep is necessary for health, so we can keep in good health by sleeping.
Sleeping during the night is a routine but in the lecture hall it is much more fun. You might be astonished at my choice of place but mind you, perfect sleeping is like a sport and needs active sportsmen. There are also some rules that are to be obeyed to play it.
First make a close observation of all the teachers during lectures. This will help you to decide which lecture this sport is safest to be played and the choice is truly yours. It starts with the arrival of the respected teacher. The battle between sleep and you begins and you never want to be victorious.
During the lectures, our respected teacher creates a beautiful atmosphere for sleeping by switching off all the lights and turning on the projector. Faint sounds of the lecture act as sedatives, you suffer from temporary ptosis, and all systems start working sluggishly most of all the brain with complaint of ptosis, your ears too, refuse to escort you in this tug of war. Perhaps your vestibulo-cochlear system started to snore.
But what else is missing in your sleep?
Yes! Where to sit? You should prefer sitting in the middle rows or at the back concealed by the person in front. Never sit in the front rows because that are reserved for students getting maximum attention from teacher.
The initial step is to relax and hold an attractive pen. Don't give evidence of yawning, it is infectious too. Learn to sleep with pen eyes. Whenever the teacher turns towards you, never miss a chance to nod your head.
When there is no danger of intrusion from your teacher you can drift off to sleep. Co-operation of your friends can even let you enjoy beautiful dreams. If God forbid, the teacher catches sight of you enjoying your sleep, your fast friend can make you up by a slight tug. Don't startle and cope with this unfortunate situation. Put on an innocent expression and start writing whatever comes into you ears.
In the course of learning you might be funned out of class. Oh dear! That is "Unfair" but practice will make you perfect one day.
If you are caught twice or thrice, don't lose heart, keep struggling and one day you may represent your college team in the inter college sleeping competition you may even win the trophy and thus bring good name to your college.
As I pen down these notes, I feel drowsy and my eyelids feel heavy...
Good luck and sweet dream...!
