^^ Sounds like a plan, so as long as your occupation can handle that sort of schedule.

I just end up laying in bed wide awake getting frustrated and bored. Thus instead I'm just going to stay awake as long as I can so that after a crash I'll be closer to 'normal' again, at least for a while. Basically today is just going to be a wasted day by default, featuring a shitload of caffeine and trying not to touch anything I'm at all concerned about fucking up.

I struggled just like this last summer. But ever since I started taking melatonin (and not regularly, just whenever I get too out of whack), the problem has gone away and never come back. There's an art to using it correctly, and the amounts needed might depend on bodyweight and such, but it became my miracle pill, letting me achieve the impossible in the realm of sleep.

Yeah, normally it isn't a problem at all but I have to be somewhere and wide awake next Saturday at 8am so this sleeping until I wake up at some arbitrary time in the afternoon shit needs to stop for a while.

So it seems that I pushed through the tiredness yesterday afternoon and accidently caught a second wind, because now I still can't sleep.

That's how it always goes. You stay up to get to an acceptable "bed-time", but you find you're not tired by the time you get to the intended hour. You stay up well into the morning again, to the same time that you originally last went to sleep. You're pushing 42 hours awake, only to end up in the same position you tried to get out of.

The wired internet is out at my apartment complex. Strangely enough, the wireless still works. I fucking hate using the wireless. It's bogged down to the point of near uselessness. Not to mention, it's about as secure as a /fit/izen is in his own masculinity. In other words, I would rather use the internet in North Korea.

Just to rub salt in the wound, I'm too far away from the repeater to get a steady connection. So it drops out. A lot.

I should do a promiscuous packet capture. All in the name of science, of course.

Woke up to find that the bed that I'm sleeping on has become a giant sponge... And the fucking leak sprung again (and reading off the news) after it was raining hard without end.

It's 6:39am Est and I'm still awake all because I was just assaulted by a huge roach. So big that I noticed the fucker with my glasses off. I took my glasses off to wrap my hair for bed when I noticed a spot on the wall that shouldn't have been there. Then proceeded to fight and scream like the girl I am to kill damn thing. Please note HotShot should no longer be sold in stores cause it doesn't work worth shit :rant:

My nerves are completely shot :dizzy:

Judging by your location, there are worse things you could've woken up with in your room. :lol:

At a university doing "praxes", initiation rituals for new students basically. At least I´m getting to know new people. When I consider that my other option was staying holed in my room, looking at the ceilling and masturbating, getting eggs smashed on my head ain´t so bad. Hum, is it really an FML in this case then? I don´t know. Well, going to be a bit busy until November 1th. :ehh:

So, the only alternative to excessive masturbation would be to allow yourself to be bullied, and then presumably later down the line bully others? There is the option of non-conforming and finding like-minded people within the university.

Always pick dignity; even if it means you'll be spending your days with the girl with the wonky eye and your nights excessively masturbating. At least she'll appreciate your company - and you will too.

I've never understood the point of initiation rituals- surely there are better ways to judge a person's worth than pelting them with eggs.

To me the whole thing stinks of schadenfreude disguised as formal procedure.
