We recently reached an absolutely massive follower milestone, and as a massive thank you to all 20K of you, I decided to go through our edits and turn some of them into icons (because lets be real, the more Sam icons that are out there the better right?)
They’re all 100px x 100px so they’re great for tumblr, twitter, livejournal, or for wherever you want to use them really. Credit is not needed when you use these icons, all that I ask is that:
you do not claim them as your own 
you do not crop, re-edit, or use them as a base for your own icons, graphics, edits etc.
you please like/reblog this post if you’re going to use them (if there’s a good response, it gives me a good idea of how receptive people might be to future ”goodies”)
Here’s an example of some of them. 
  
 
All 148 are under the cut, so if you just want to pick a few of them you can right-click save them, or if you want to download them all in bulk you can do that HERE. 
Thank you guys so so much for following this blog, for liking and reblogging our edits, and for making all of us here at sammyscreencaps extremely happy and proud. Y’all are kick ass, we love you a lot, and we hope that you enjoy these icons. Here’s to the next 20K!! - From Marie, Ars, Iris & Sas. xoxoxo

sammyscreencaps:

Hey guys!! It’s Marie here, and I just want to tell y’all that recently sammyscreencaps reached 10,000 followers!!! Both myself and Ars are completely flabbergasted by this number, because that’s 10,000 of you who love Sam (maybe even as much as we do), and who have chosen to have our edits on your dash. 
So first and foremost, I’d personally like to thank each and every one of you because when I started this blog way back in April, I had absolutely no fucking idea that sammyscreencaps would achieve what it has done, or mean as much to me as it currently does; and I’d also like to personally thank Ars too, she’s completely amazing and has done (and continues to do) a stand up fucking job making edits and helping me run this blog. A billion and one kudos to her, and even more so to you for continuing to follow, like and reblog this blog. You’re all amazing.
And secondly, (and probably more importantly), to mark this occasion, Ars came up with the idea that we should do a PSD giveaway as a thank you to everyone, and I agreed, and well, here it is. 
We’ve both made 3 PSDs for everyone, they’re free, you can grab em as much as you like and use them on your edits, or learn how to make your own edits from them, (just please do not take credit for the PSDs that’s all we ask).

All three PSDs contain vibrance, and a come with a black and white option.
DOWNLOAD HERE

PSD 1 contains vibrance in the main psd, and comes with an extra ‘optional’ mini psd
PSD 2 + PSD 3 both have no vibrance in the main psd, but contain it in their optional extras. PSD 3 comes with a black and white option.
DOWNLOAD HERE
EDIT: Here’s a combined zip if anyone needs that format!
Rules:
Please like/reblog this post if you nab either of our packs
Please do not claim any of our PSDs as your own, we put a lot of work into these and people who steal other people’s work suck.
If you have a problem, or inquiry with either of our PSDs, then feel free to send either Ars, or myself a message and we’ll help you anyway we can.
Thanks again for following us guys, y’all are seriously the best

25 Napping Facts Every College Student Should Know
It makes you smarterAccording to Dr. Matthew Walker of the University of California, napping for as little as one hour resets your short-term memory and helps you learn facts more easily after you wake up.
Abandon all-nightersForegoing sleep by cramming all night reduces your ability to retain information by up to 40%. If you can, mix in a nap somewhere to refresh your hippocampus.
It doesn’t mean what you thinkIf you know you have to pull an all-nighter, try a “prophylactic nap.” It’s a short nap in advance of expected sleep deprivation that will help you stay alert for up to 10 hours afterwards.
You can’t avoid that down period after lunch by not eatingHuman bodies naturally go through two phases of deep tiredness, one between 2-4 a.m. and between 1-3 p.m. Skipping lunch won’t help this period of diminished alertness and coordination.
Pick the right timeAfter lunch in the early afternoon your body naturally gets tired. This is the best time to take a brief nap, as it’s early enough to not mess with your nighttime sleep.
Hour naps are greatA 60-minute nap improves alertness for 10 hours, although with naps over 45 minutes you risk what’s known as “sleep inertia,” that groggy feeling that may last for half an hour or more.
But short naps are bestFor healthy young adults, naps as short as 20, 10, or even 2 minutes can be all you need to get the mental benefits of sleep, without risking grogginess.
Drink coffee firstThe way this works is you drink a cup of coffee right before taking your 20-minute or half-hour nap, which is precisely how long caffeine takes to kick in. That way when you wake up, you’re not only refreshed, but ready to go.
The NASA napA little group called NASA discovered that just a 26-minute nap increases performance by 34% and alertness by 54%. Pilots take advantage of NASA naps while planes are on autopilot.
Can’t sleep? Don’t stressEven if you can’t fall asleep for a nap, just laying down and resting has benefits. Studies have found resting results in lowered blood pressure, which even some college kids have to worry about if they are genetically predisposed to high blood pressure.
Napping may save your lifeA multi-year Greek study found napping at least three times per week for at least 30 minutes resulted in a 37% lower death rate due to heart problems.
More nap benefits for the brainNot only will napping improve your alertness, it will also help your decision-making, creativity, and sensory perception.
But wait, there’s moreStudies have found napping raises your stamina 11%, increases ability to stay asleep all night by 12%, and lowers the time required to fall asleep by 14%.
The ultimate napAccording to Dr. Sara Mednick, the best nap occurs when REM sleep is in proportion to slow-wave sleep. Use her patented Take A Nap Nap Wheel to calculate what time of day you can nap to the max.
Fight the Freshman 15Research shows that women who sleep five hours at night are 32% more likely to experience major weight gain than those sleeping seven hours. A two-hour nap isn’t feasible for many, but napping is a good way to make up for at least some lost night sleep.
If it was good enough for them…Presidents JFK and Bill Clinton used to nap every day to help ease the heavy burden of ruling the free world. Of course, they also had other relaxation methods, but we won’t get into those.
Do like the Romans doIn ancient Rome, everyone, including children, retreated for a 2 or 3-hour nap after lunch. No doubt this is the reason the Roman empire lasted over 1,000 years
Don’t wait too longThe latest you want to wake up from a nap is five hours before bedtime, otherwise you risk not being able to fall asleep at night.
Sugar is not a good substitute for a napWhen we are tired, we instinctively reach for foods with a high glycemic index, but after the initial energy wears off, we’re left more tired than we were before.
It’s a good way to catch upIf it takes you less than five minutes to fall asleep at night, you are sleep deprived. If you never can seem to get to bed earlier at night, a mid-day nap is a great way to catch up on sleep.
Underclassmen need more sleepFreshmen and sophomores who are still in your teens: you need up to 10 hours of sleep to feel rested. So odds are, you are sleep-deprived.
You’ll have to leave the party soonerAfter one school-week of not getting enough sleep, three alcoholic drinks will affect you the same way six would when you are fully rested.
Don’t drive drowsyDon’t be afraid to take advantage of an “emergency nap” on the side of the road in your car. Every year, as many as 100,000 traffic fatalities are caused by sleepy people behind the wheel.
The Einstein MethodIf you are concerned about sleeping too long, do what Albert Einstein regularly did: hold a pencil while you’re drifting off, so when you fall asleep, the pencil dropping will wake you up. (We do not guarantee you will wake up with a 180 IQ.)
Missing sleep is worse at your ageFor people ages 18 to 24, sleep deprivation impairs performance more significantly than in other age brackets.

And non-students as well, of course!

guess who’s taking more naps this year.
