Nap Time, originally uploaded by alachia.

I used to take a lot of naps in college. I think it was mostly the late nights in the studio and having 8am labs and such. There was nothing more delicious and delightful than letting my mind slip out of consciousness for a few hours out of the day.

Hell, I’d say back then it was even a hobby! But now I never take naps. In fact, I hate the idea of sleeping. I’m not sure what changed. I guess I feel like sleeping makes me lose time. I feel like awareness is a huge virtue and I like having my eyes open all the time.

I owe a lot of that to my life in the meta where every day always shows me something new. I’m addicted to discovering new sights, new cultures, and just exploring the people I’ve met (without ever having to leave my desk nonetheless). I find even the smallest details about people delectable. And the ability to share and connect is getting easier and easier.

That being said, I still like the idea of naps. I like the idea of peace and rest. I strived really hard in this house to create guest bedrooms that would sponge people and suck them in so they feel nothing but relaxed. (insert jokes about pits in the basement here). There’s nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable when you’re in another person’s home. I guess the only drawback is when you can’t get them to leave. heheh.

The sheets on this bed are 100% modal (from BBB) which I discovered this year. They are far better than the highest count of Egyptian Cotton in my opinion. They are as soft as cotton but also have a silky feel while still being warm. Sometimes when I lay on this guest bed, I feel like I’m in a sea of chocolate silk.

As for the comforter, it’s micro-suede, nothing fancy and was super cheap. Most people don’t believe me when I tell them where I bought it (Walmart). The accent pillows were a present my mom made for me. She is somehow gifted with the talent of sewing which I hope to one day acquire as well. 🙂

If you ever visit me, this is most likely the bed I’d put you in because it’s my favorite. I’m not sure if I’ll add another brown accent wall in the new house though but we’ll see.
