    Jin's Bio:
    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

The Thing That’s More Important

So many things are important in life. Having a good sense of humor. Listening to good music. Having a strong support network. Avoiding junk foods. Making good friends.

But few things are absolutely vital for life. Not just important. Crucial. Absolutely necessary. Sure, food, oxygen, water, yes. But more importantly: sleep.

Those zzzzzz’s and snoozes and shut eyes and hitting the hays. In college, it’s so tempting and ridiculously easy to throw away a few hours of sleep for an extra episode of the latest trending TV show, a few more levels of that new game, a few more ranting sessions with your best friends, or a few more pages of that juicy book. Sometimes, you may even be tempted to think you’re making the right decision to forego those few hours of sleep in order to proofread that essay one more time, maybe even write that essay before it’s due the next day, study a few more hours for that test.

Stop before you pick up this nasty habit.

Take it from someone who has suffered from 3 sleep disorders for more than half of her life, and also has made some horrible trades with her sleep as currency. Sleep is more important than that game. It’s more important than finding one more typo in that assignment. It’s more important than trying to prove to others that you’re actually a cyborg who doesn’t need petty things like food and oxygen and rest. Sleep is more important. It doesn’t matter what your argument is. What your vice is.

Sleep is more important.
