1. Pour 12 ounces of hot black coffee down your throat (should I really say do not try this at home?)
2. Get in a hot bath tub (clothing optional)
3. Take a nap (you will fall asleep like a baby if you haven't slept in days)
In 30 min, your heart's gonna start to race because the caffeine is now kicking in, and you are gonna feel extremely uncomfortable because the hot tub is dehydrating the shit out of you.
So there -- now you are wide awake! You had 30 minutes of a good nap, and you are good to go for another 8 hours.
With all the jokes aside, that's really what I do to stay awake and get my work done.
Whenever I try to go to bed early, I get this sense of unease, guilt, and lack of accomplishments as if I don't deserve to go to bed.
Like today, a Sunday, I worked for over 12 hours and got a lot of things done, and now it's 2 am. But for some reason, I feel like I shouldn't go to bed yet. I feel like I should do more (hence writing this blog... -.-;;)
Should I stay up and get some more work done? Or should I crash in bed next to my beautiful, lonely wife who has been going to bed alone for months.
