Whatever you do, don’t set a bedtime. You’re not a little kid anymore! When the sun sets and people start to fall asleep, don’t turn off your TV. What would you do with the silence?

Whatever you do, don’t go to sleep.
Do you think I’m kidding? Does this sound like a game?! Well, I wish I were so deceived. But let me take you back to my college years, to the days of head-bobbing exhaustion, to the days when this sleeplessness wasn’t a game.
