    I didn't sleep last night. It's 10:30am, I'm really behind (really really behind). I don't think I can afford to sleep until tomorrow or I'll miss uni deadlines.

    Every half an hour or so I'm doing push ups to keep me awake. Should I get coffee? Or will that only last for a few hours and then I'll be even more tired after? Any tricks to keeping awake?

    5 hour energy keeps me awake. Coffee makes me sleepier because, for me, because it makes me energetic and wiry while making me feel this sleepy haze at the same time, accentuating my sleepiness. I would suggest getting angry and not doing anything to relieve it. It'll give you energy to want to relieve it but instead use that energy to stay awake and study. Just a suggestion. :)

    I swear by the power nap!
    30 minute nap, set your alarm.
    Any longer than 30 minutes and you'll wake up feeling groggy.

    cigarettes or cigars, chain smoke them, that's what I usually do if I'm investigating something.

    Here, that's failing. If I was your dad, I'd give you the "it's time to buckle down" speech, that neither of us would want. :(

    Uni marks are harder to get. Under 40% is a fail. 40-49% is a third. 50-59% is a 2:2. 60-69% is a 2:1. 70%+ is a first.

    So 60% would get me the 2nd highest grades. And only like 6% of law students get a first so that would be pretty good!

    I would be strict, and expect nothing less than 100%. :)

    Even Lord (trying to think of a judge but failing) would get 90% at most. Lord Denning! Even he would be way off of 100%. Mostly because he's dead though

    I would cut you some slack for attending the same school at which Newton/Hawking taught. That's impressive. :)

    Yeah Conley quit fuckin' around and work hard to get some good grades, trust me these years are important when you're developing your skills/knowledge and you need to make them count. You can slack off when you're older and have a career under your belt :wazzzup:

    The sleep will help refreshen your mind. 48 hours without sleep you'll loose attention to detail it's not a smart move.

    Yeah sleep is an ally not an enemy, just time your sleep and you'll be alright. I quit pulling all nighters and being anti-sleep in my early twenties because I didn't like what not sleeping did to my body/mind.

    If you run out of weed, just get high off of not sleeping. :)

    I don't consider it a high though I consider the feeling of being fatigued an impairment, like being injured or too drunk.
