You’re in your 2:00 p.m. class and you find yourself nodding off during the professor’s monotone lecture. But instead of reaching for your latte or a chocolate bar as a quick pick-me-up, opting for a spoonful of peanut butter might do a better job at helping you power through the rest of class.

Okay, so maybe it isn’t feasible to carry around a jar of peanut butter to stave off a midday slump, but what I’m getting at is that protein, rather than caffeine or sugar, will do a better job at keeping you awake.

According to a recent study, protein stimulates certain brain cells, not only keeping us awake, but also telling the body to burn more calories. Those specific cells, known as orexin cells, help regulate the body’s energy and wakefulness. In fact, the loss of orexin cells can result in narcolepsy and weight gain.

The infamous Hailey Glassman is quite the annoying tweeter, and I’ve been waiting for the prefect tweet to attack her on.

On October 20th Hailey Glassman tweeted, “If ur honest n don’t lie then u never have 2 remember what u tell each person,cause it will all be the same since its the truth”-L.Glassman. OH REALLY, IS THAT HOW IT WORKS?

Well I’ve got some news for you, if you put peanut butter on one slice of bread, and put jelly on another slice of bread, and then stick the two pieces of bread together, you’ll have a friggan peanut butter and jelly sandwich. AMAZING HOW THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND, HUH HAILEY?

I’m assuming the “L.Glassman,” is a sister or brother, who is clearly an airhead. Then again they are related to a fame- whoring, home-wrecking dumbass, so you can’t expect much I suppose.

Hailey Glassman, I would normally tell you to cancel your twitter and go crawl into a corner somewhere, but your tweets are my jokes of the day, so for you I shall make an exception. Congratulations. Please continue with you’re soul-baring tweets, I look forward to making fun of you again.
