Do you sleep with your blanket covering your head, why?2021-11-27 21:02:02【Mr_公孙】
I used to go through a phase where i slept with the blanket over my head as a child, trying to hide from all the “monsters” cause my mom never gave me a nightlight. Here i am all grown up, sleeping with the lights dimmed. I get super pissed to wake up to complete darkness.
Now i sleep with the blanket covering my entire body and my entire face, leaving a hole for my nose…
Why do you regret your major in University? How far in your major did you go (ex: PhD)? Why do you regret it?
I am glad to have graduated with an Economics undergraduate degree, but to be honest, I was not particularly passionate about my major.
A better fit would have been completing a Music major, even though I did not attend a music conservatory. I was much more passionate about music in college than anything else, and for a time was even enrolled in a Music Certificate Program (like a minor) in Musical Performance.
I was premed, quit being premed, and thought a Princeton Econ degree was a “safe play” for getting a job in the event I didn’t go onto grad school. However, I did go to grad school after all (law school), and ironically after that (deeply affected by the events of 9/11) switched back to being premed.
Now that I’m soon to enter private practice plastic surgery, having a background in Economics and in Law will prove useful for the business of medicine, but neither was necessary to get where I am.
On the other hand, I’ve continued to play music and having focused on it some more might have opened my horizons more to things such as Music Composition and Conducting. Music admittedly doesn’t fill my pockets, but it enriches my soul.
That being said, for those who know for sure that they’ll be entering the workforce directly after college, I still stand by my advice to major in a discipline that will reliably get you a job that will feed you (and your future family) and help pay off any student debt. Had I truly been in that position, then the Econ degree was the smart play, particularly at that time (c. 2000, before the tech bubble popped).
My advice to my own school-aged children will be to focus on STEM education when they attend college, assuming neither opts to enter music conservatory…if they’re also passionate about humanities and the arts, I will strongly suggest that they minor in those fields, or pursue them formally in a shorter Master’s program instead.
Is it me or do you sleep better if your bed sheets are tight against the bed?
Unsure about this specifically. But I like it to be slightly below comfortable room temperature in my room at night so that I can put more blankets on, which are cozy. I also never gave up stuffed animals as the soft fur also relaxes me
Do you change out the top covering on your bed or keep the same one?
For our own personal bed I change the sheets and pillowcases once a week and the pillow protectors and quilt cover once a month and the mattress protector maybe two monthly.
But for our Airbnb cottage bed, that’s altogether different! I change everything between guests, or for longer term stays every 4 days. From the bottom up…..I have two mattress protectors, one expensive one and a cheaper model. With every guest I change the cheap mattress protector, the flat sheet that goes over that, the bottom fitted sheet, the top sheet, the waffle blanket, the quilt cover, the 6 pillow protectors and the 6 pillow cases.
Nothing that a guest has any chance of coming in contact with on the bed is left unchanged for the next guest. This is done partly for cleanliness and partly as a protection against the introduction of bedbugs.
Supplying a bed for a paying guest to sleep in is not simple any more. The level of protection and cleanliness must be unchallengeable.
How are you covering your expenses as a graduate student at ETH Zurich or EPFL?
The last time I checked, Excellence Scholarship provides a student with CHF 1,600/month, during the semester. The amount for a Master Scholar position is approximately CHF 1,200/month (they have some tax deduction). So you would need ~CHF 12000 - 16000/year. Note that internship in the industry is obligatory for Master students in CS at EPFL, you would be able to earn around ~CHF 2000/month during the 3-to-6-month internship (note that this number can be much higher if you get accepted by big companies - Google, Microsoft, Credit Suisse, etc.) Then if you still have problem you could decide to do your thesis at a company, which not only helps you financially but professionally (get a permanent job after graduation).
Having said that, if you are an academic-oriented folk who wants to do research and builds up a career in academia, it would be quite difficult to support yourself through internships and it would be better to have your budget ready for a 2-year period. If you are industry-oriented then this is a nice challenge that worth trying. Preparing a 1-year budget and sort things out as you go. That what I did at EPFL.
Do you have a duvet in your bed, or do you prefer sheets and a blanket? How big is your bed?
I have a king size bed and use two twin duvets. Yep. Two. That way my partner and I aren't pulling the covers during the night. We got the idea while traveling in Europe. That seems to be the standard there since there's really no such thing as king size beds. Always two twins pushed together. Also, no top sheet. Just sleep under the duvets and wash the covers once a week.
Is it better for your neck / spine to sleep with or without a pillow if you sleep on your back?
We don’t and we did not evolve to “need” pillow.
In many cultures throughout history people have not had pillows or pillows were only for the elite. In the middle ages in Europe they were seen as a sign of weakness and went out of favor, for example. Only pregnant women used them. In cultures that sleep in hammocks they don’t use pillows (used by Mayan for over 1500 years). Pillows became a high status thing in late medieval Europe.
People in most of human history (and in many places still today) probably slept very differently than we do today. The !Kung (northwest Botswana ) sleep on a skin or sometimes just on the sandy ground. The Efe ( Zaire ) people sleep on thinly strewn leaves or perched between two logs. The Hiwi (Venezuela) use hammocks. None of these nomads use pillows or coverings. The more settled people such as the Gebusi (Paupau New Guinea) sleep on platforms made of wood strips and throw a barkcloth cape over their torso at night.
It may be that the reason that many traditional people do without bedding is to avoid exposure to fleas and lice. The introduction of blankets in highland Papua New Guinea was associated with a dramatic increase in asthma among adults, probably due to infestations of house mites in the blankets.
The question supposes a very common mistake. That is that the way you live is universal. It is not. Towns and cities are no more than 10,000 years old. People lived other ways for hundreds of thousands of years. Even today the range of how people live is really much bigger than you would suppose. There should be a standard Quora bot response for the many questions that assume that the way life has been for 150 or 50 years is universal and for all time.
Even among cultures that use pillows some would not seem like pillows to you. Ceramic, wood, and stone have been used as “pillows”.

Even today, people around the world do not use pillows. This is a Hadza man sleeping. No pillow is the norm.
This is a Tsimane home, no pillow.
These are San people sleeping.
