Can't Stay Awake for a Whole Movie

Falling Asleep  - This picture was taken in Belize when my brother and I fell asleep on the bus! Too much partying leads to hung heads and drool, ew gross. We were on our way cave tubing, but I thought I would use the picture to show how often and how easily I can fall asleep. Especially in a dark movie theater! I could be narcoleptic haha.

I really enjoy films, in fact I am a film student at my University, but I can't seem to stay awake long enough to watch a movie in one setting, unless I'm pumped full of caffeine. I love films, but I also love my sleep. I came to this realization just now, after attempting to watch 'Queen of the Damned' for the 4th time, but I just can't seem to get through it! Does anyone else have this problem? When I am with a large group of friends they always know I'm going to fall asleep 15 min. into the movie. I even fall asleep in theaters if the movie is bland, like 'Vantage Point', and sorry in advanced if any of you like it, but I thought it was terrible! The conditions to watch a film, and the conditions to fall asleep are similar, for both you are in the dark and in a comfortable position with little to no talking and it is just so soothing with the ambiance sounds and lighting. I really don't mind paying 8 bucks in the afternoon to go watch a movie and take a nap in a big, dark, public room! I bet there are more people out there like me, well at least I assumed there was, share what you think about sleeping during movies.

I used to go to movie theatres in those years, atleats twice a week. These days no more time. But, I still once in a while watch movies on the TV and on the computer. And, guess what, half the time I would be sleeping ! Ha ha ! Well, I can say it is a nice way for relaxation, sleeping and watching movie ! But, I know I shouldn't be doing that in a theatre !
