How Important is Light?

Since about Thanksgiving Break this past November, the ceiling light in my dorm room has been having issues. It'll turn itself off, and it'll stay off for about 10-20 minutes before turning itself back on. Now, I wasn't very worried about this because it was only happening every 3-4 days, and I could handle not having light for 10-20 minutes. I thought that it was just the light bulbs being bad, so before I went home for Thanksgiving Break  I put in a request to have my light bulbs replaced. When I got back, I thought that everything was good and normal with my light again! Until... One day I was opening my door after getting some dinner and I flicked on the light but it didn't come on! I was frustrated because I knew that the bulbs were new and shouldn't have burned out so quickly! After I set down my food and had turned on a flashlight, my light turned itself on... Dang it!

Now, it's been turning itself on and off every few minutes whenever I have the light switch in the on position. It's really frustrating when I'm trying to work on homework at night, or trying to video call with my boyfriend. I would just put in a work order, but I don't know when they'd come to fix it. If I'd be up and dressed when they came, or if I'd have to awkwardly stand there in my pjs... That kind of freaks me out. So I've been on the fence about whether or not I really need to get my light fixed! I mean, I have a desk light and the light above the sink in my room, but it's not very bright light so sometimes my eyes hurt.

The ultimate question for me right now is, how important is light to me? Do I really need to work on homework at night? It does get dark a lot earlier now, but I can always go sit in the hall... I guess we'll see what happens!
