I can think of very few things that are more rewarding than a deep, undisturbed, restful night’s sleep. The kind of profound slumber where you lay your head on the pillow, fall instantly to sleep and wake up eight hours later filled with energy and ready for the day.
There is nothing worse than tossing and turning all night, looking at the alarm clock every 10 minutes, counting down the amount of sleep you are NOT getting and wondering how you are going to make it through the day.

As a cast member I am frustrated with mental health professionals in this town who are acting like we are “giving teenagers ideas”. The hard truth is that this type of bullying, drug use, rebellion, eating disorders, etc. IS prevalent at Los Alamos High School without
