For those of us who aren't morning people, fighting off the last vestiges of dream land and actually extricating ourselves from our beds can be a monumental task.

Nothing is worse than when you've just laid down and gotten comfortable and realize you've forgotten something (usually turning the light off). This can lead to quite a bit of ingenuity when figuring out how to get things done without having to actually get back up and out of bed.

"Since I'm too lazy to even try throwing some stuff at the switch to turn on/off the light, I bought a Google Home Mini and a bulb that connects to Wifi, so I just have to say "Okay google, turn on (or off) the light" from my bed."

"I have a dog and a cat, and I HATE sleeping with the door open. Sometimes dog wants to sleep in the bedroom, sometimes dog wants to sleep outside the bedroom. But he never decides until I'm comfy in bed. Solution? Keep a laser pointer on my nightstand. Once dog decides where he's sleeping, I'll shine the laser pointer on the door so that my cat paws it closed. It has now become a routine that my cat will wait by the door for the laser before laying down."

"When I was a kid, I had a bunk bed. I would sleep on the top bunk. I was also an avid reader, so I would stay up late reading most nights. Now, being on the top bunk, there weren't many options for light other than the regular overhead fixture. No place to put a lamp, really. I absolutely hated getting up, climbing down the ladder, turning off the overhead light, and climbing back up in the dark. One day my friend and I invented a system of pulleys that ran a string from my light switch, down to the carpet (attached to the fibers with a safety pin), back to the ceiling, across the ceiling, and finally ending hanging directly above my pillow. With one tug, I could turn the light off from my bed! It didn't turn the light on, but that didn't matter. It was a lot of work to build, simply to avoid getting out of bed."

Adults Explain Which Things Every Teenager Should Know

We often look back on our teenage years with mixed emotions.

Our final years where we could enjoy our youth, and live largely without responsibility and just enjoy being a child and all that came with it.

Of course, we might also look back on things we did as teenagers which we are less than proud of today.

Or things we wish someone had told us, so that we may have avoided falling into those unhappy situations.

We all pretended to be sick at least once when we were children to get out of going to school to avoid a test, game, or assembly we'd been dreading.

Some people still might not have given up the habit of feigning illness, as a means of avoiding work or other occasions that they are less than eager to attend.

Sometimes, simply telling people that you're "sick" is all the information you need to share to get out of it.

Whether or not more concrete proof is needed, others might go a step further in faking their ailment, be it a cold or fever, and often pull off fairly convincing performances.

Sometimes even fooling a doctor.

Every kid has their own strengths and talents. However, in school, some of us are singled out as being ‘gifted.’

This could mean a variety of things, from getting exceptionally good grades to having a unique way of thinking or understanding topics that aren’t seen in other students.

Often, when a student is labeled “gifted,” it is assumed they will be successful in later life.

However, Reddit has proven that this is not always the case.

Sometimes gifted students are successful but to a normal degree. They have the same careers and achievements as students who weren't labeled gifted. Other times, these students are not successful at all and being labeled “gifted” ended up damaging.

Non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, are legally binding contracts that establish confidential relationships.

For most people, it’s not a big deal. NDAs are often signed at the start or end of an employment opportunity or during a sale of a product or technology you own. They mainly protect creative, business, or intellectual properties.

However, another function of NDAs is to guarantee silence on more high profile or nefarious events. For example, Stormy Daniels was asked to sign an NDA so that events that transpired between her and former president, Donald Trump, would be kept a secret. In most cases like these, the person who signs the NDA also gets a sum of money for their cooperation.

In these cases, the reason for the NDA is usually wild.
