A big, beautiful comforter, spread neatly across the bed you share with a partner may look nice during the daytime. But at night, chaos results. One person will be too hot, one too cold.

There seem to be two kinds of gyms: the kind where everybody is doing hip thrusts, and the kind where nobody has ever heard of them. In the first, you might feel intimidated; in the second, you might not want to be that weirdo. Fear not: we’ll help you get started with confidence.

I’ve stayed up late for a lot of stupid things. Sometimes it’s a miscalculation, like trying to finish an assignment that I’m too tired to focus on. But usually it just kind of happens: I’m already watching Netflix, so I keep watching Netflix. I wanted to read a book this evening, and I didn’t get the chance until…
