    There are so many holiday activities one can enjoy in December, but if you ask me, wrapping presents is not one of them.

    People Who Sleep In Are Usually Smarter, So You Can Go Back To Bed

    Most days, I sleep in. Even though the first couple moments of my day are frantic because I’ve slept past my alarm, for the rest of the day, I’m full of energy. And I usually have no regrets that I showed up late to work. In Ernest Hemingway’s own words, I love sleep. My life […]
