Have you ever been tossing and turning trying to fall asleep? Senior Gillian Dunne definitely has! She complains that she’s “always either too hot or too cold, so to even it out, I stick one leg out of the covers and keep one under”. There are many students at Academy that suffer from this issue, and for various reasons. For Junior Alejandra Pazzi, the reason is: “I always remember my most embarrassing moments when I am trying to fall asleep”. Senior Maddie Matesich has trouble falling asleep because: “I take a nap when I get home everyday, so I stay up late doing homework and don’t end up getting tired until after midnight”. Everyone has experienced the feeling of not being able to fall asleep at least once, and here are some thoughts as to why it happens.
