If you have trouble keeping your eyes open, typing correctly, or thinking in clearly delineated thoughts, just eat some chocolate. It’ll give you the extra boost you need to keep doing whatever it is that you need to be doing. I’m eating a bag of M&Ms right now, and seriously, it’s doing amazing things for my ability to think clearly. That combined with listening once again to Radical and then Bastard will help me get over my extreme fatigue after staying up until 3 AM two nights in a row.
This is how my sleep schedule works. I need to go to bed before 1 and wake up before 9 to feel well rested; anything else and I’m a little off. I know some people who are ok with pulling multiple allnighters per week – I just could never do that. I mean I know that they’re not really ‘ok’, but they can function. See I wouldn’t be able to. I did one all-night for the hackathon, and by the end of that, I felt like I was drunk. I couldn’t really walk straight, and Eric, who I was with, definitely noticed that my thoughts and speech weren’t really making sense. I slept for like 14 hours after that. But you knew that.
Also, i just learned that the half of my SNES collection that I was given by my friend last year is now being reclaimed by his older brother. Never has a text message murdered my buzz so egregiously. This is a sad day. I lost Yoshi’s Island, Link to the Past, all 3 Donkey Kongs, Mega Man X, Power Rangers, and Mario Kart. Isn’t that messed up? I’m told that I’ll get them back at the end of the summer, but oh man…it might be a slowish summer.
