I have actually, but that was typically insomnia due to stress. If the problem is the schedule then you just have to change the schedule, or at least recognize the parts of it that are flexible and see if you can find a better arrangement.Kielox wrote:You've obviously have never had prolonged periods of bad sleep.

Funny, perhaps, but also surprisingly appropriate. Sleep and exercise are more related than a lot of people realize; I've been finding this out myself lately.I thought it would be chuckle-worthy to have a Rin-counterpart thread to the Emi-running thread.
Actually, Rin likely isn't napping for any lack of sleep or for being tired. If you've ever been working on something creative like drawing, painting, writing or otherwise, you eventually hit a point where you hit an imagination wall (not an imaginary wall, mind you). You spend so much time focusing on what you're trying to achieve as an end result that you end up getting lost in the details between.One last note: While some people (such as Rin) might condone naps, I can't say that I do. They don't work for me - I always wake up feeling *worse* than when I dozed off. I don't seem to get any rest, and then I have to struggle through the pain of waking up all over again on top of it.
I think my record for staying up was around 70 hours. I was 11 or 12 at the time, and it was like a competition between my older brother, his friend and myself. We sat up playing SNES games, punching each other and, eventually, having increasingly irate and or inane discussions about objects we found around the room. I don't even remember who 'won', but I'm pretty sure we all lost.Revvy wrote:I remember once about 3 years ago i stayed up for around 53 hours straight, started seeing shit and passed out on my friends living room floor, woke up on his sofa 18 hours later lol
Mine is a very modest 34.

You wouldn't believe how much of this applies to me. Whenever I first got out of high school, I started sinking a lot of time into World of Warcraft, falling asleep in the late afternoon so that I could get up later in the evening and play with my west-coast guildmates until the early morning. I left WoW eventually, but I never had a set bed time in my mind and I still get a bit of a mental rush whenever 9 PM or so rolls around in preparation for a raid that is never going to happen. This wasn't a problem until I got a job that demanded early shifts. I still feel too awake to sleep if I stay up much past 8 or so, and it becomes really easy to start reading an article or a forum thread 'until I start to get tired'.DrNonookee wrote:Until fairly recently, I've been very lethargic overall, and I now realize that part of this is because I wasn't sleeping right. In my case, a big part of the problem was simply that of procrastination - I'd stay up past my bedtime playing video games or watching TV or writing message board posts. I never seemed to have enough 'me' time and as a result I was always trying to squeeze out that extra half-hour or hour of entertainment before having to go to work the next day. I never thought much of it, for reasons I'll explain shortly.
Then I played KS, fell in love with Emi and realized from her playthrough that, if I started exercising, I'd probably have more energy. I tried it, and it worked - I've been feeling a big boost in my overall get-up-and-do-crap factor. The funny thing is, the exercise is only part of it.
See, the thing is, my 'sleepiness' doesn't seem to work like most other peoples'. If I fail to get enough sleep, I don't just go around feeling tired - I feel *achey*. Not getting enough sleep causes me to suffer from annoyingly persistant muscle pains the next day - lower back pain, leg and knee pain, shoulder pain, etc. The tiredness associated from lack of sleep is there, but that part hardly bothers me - I can just sort of ignore it once I claw my way out of bed. But the aches were, and sometimes still are, a big issue.
