Re: Sleep? Whats that?

I have been tired all week, even sleeping the whole way home! Today was AP Calc, so I went to bed early last night and got enough sleep to get throught the test, but afterwards I couldn't stay awake, sorry chem class!

A couple of funny stories have come out of my team from lack of sleep.
Now that you mention that, Heatwave had an incident where some of our devoted programmers stayed nearly ALL weekend and the results weren't pretty, apparently some people went a little crazy somewhere between 3am and 5am and put some holes in our top goal backboard with a screw driver and other various objects. Most of us students thought it was pretty funny, but our mentor, the guy who built it, was less than thrilled for most of that morning

Re: Sleep? Whats that?

What is this sleep you all speak of
If it wasn't in the KOP than it is not allowed to used

Re: Sleep? Whats that?

-Fell asleep in a few classes
-overly tired means half my team goes into a hyper dont care mood so eventually we were jumping around like fools like at the competition
-still stayed up late in hopes for a party

Havent exactly gotten all the sleep back yet but still trying.

Re: Sleep? Whats that?

I know it is crunch time -
AP's, finals, projects due, piled up homework

I googled sleep tips and here's a few:

(I wondered about this one, my grandmother loved it and here it is)
1. a warm glass of milk
2. light snack if you are hungry: high-carbohydrate snacks: crackers, pretzels, plain bagel. Don't overeat and get indigestion.
3. stay out of bed until you are sleepy. Read somewhere other than your bed.
4. relax - meditation, progressive relaxation, a warm bath or shower
5. unwind mentally - quiet music can help with this
6. once in bed, stop worrying - make your list of problems and 'next steps' for the following day before you go to bed
7. this wasn't on the lists that I looked at but I like to watch the stars for a while
