12 essential facts of life for light sleepers

Sure who needs to sleep? (You do. You really need to sleep.)

1. You don’t just wake up with your alarm. You wake up with your housemates’ alarms

2. You often request that people turn the TV down, like an auld granny

Look. It’s just the way you are. Vincent Browne roaring two rooms away is not conducive to a peaceful sleep.

3. And you are very put out by errant chinks of light

Accidentally left a gap in the curtains? That’s you wide awake at 6am, so.

4. You wonder what it must be like to be able to fall asleep anywhere

Imagine actually sleeping on a plane! Imagine it!

5. Sleeping in a different room is a dangerous game for you

Oh. I can hear traffic from this hotel room. *thinks about that for the rest of the night*

6. You could 100% never be with someone who snores

7. Or fidgets too much

You accept a certain amount of moving around. But don’t take the p*ss.

8. And sweaty summer nights really get to you

Fans are too noisy! The heat is too hot! There is no relief.

9. Airplane mode is your best friend

10. And woe betide anyone that texts you or your SO after your bedtime

*bzzt* “Alright who was that? We’re cutting them out of our lives.”

11. The worst thing though? When you’re just drifting off, then you hear a noise

12. On the other hand, though, you rarely sleep it out
