It's 6:30 AM, I have school today and have not slept! What can I do to stay awake? I finish school around 3:30pm - 4pm and I'm going out tonight at 7:00pm and getting home after 12am.

WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO?

Seriously, any tips on how I can keep awake during the day?

Just take some methamphetamines bro.

Stick a kitchen knife through your hand.

Find some Rosie O'Donnel porn. That'll wake you up.

Drink a bunch of coffee/energy drink.

#6 Posted by Evikull (60 posts) -

Coffee. Loud Music. Have someone repeatedly slap you on the back of the head and call you dumb for doing such a thing.

Good luck.

How hard will it be if I take a nap from when I get home to 7:00pm?

Don't do this. The crash is not worth it if you're trying to stay awake.

Naps have a nasty habit of turning into way more than you intend, especially when you are very tired. Use at your own risk.

Fall asleep on the street.

#11 Posted by SadPatrol (499 posts) -

you'll be fine. Eventually you're body will wake up and you'll feel more awake. Just take a nap when you get home. One night without sleep wont ruin your day.

Eating and drinking water helps in the long run. Coffee is a bad idea.

Thats why you just keep drinking coffee, no crash.

#14 Posted by NickBOTT (481 posts) -

Have some coffee to get you through the school day but not too much so that when you get home you can take a power nap from whenever you get home from school till just before you go out at 7pm.

Freezing cold shower and a kick to the nuts.

#21 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5137 posts) -

When you get home from school, do not lay (lie?) down at all. You will probably fall asleep and not wake up before 7:00.

#22 Posted by MrKlorox (11198 posts) -

Ever seen Breaking Bad? Stay home and watch that instead.

#23 Posted by mekon (273 posts) -

9 volt battery on the tongue. Keep one of those in your pocket and whenever you feel sleepy - BZZZT.

The cops can't drag you into a cell for having a battery.

#24 Posted by ImpendingFoil (555 posts) -

Those 5 Hour Energy drinks always work well for me.

#25 Posted by Mageman (351 posts) -

Stimulants would be your best bet. The best thing to take would be amphetamines (no need for that extra methyl there, sure it is more potent and enters your bloodstream easier, but if you only need it to stay awake I would not really recommend it). Caffeine may also be somewhat an option, but you must take quite (relatively) large quantities which have quite shitty affects on your body. It's best to take a small amount of amphetamines (in pill form obviously).

#26 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

So how tired would I be throughout the day if I stayed awake? =/

I hope once I get the day going I'll feel okay.

Depends what you would do to stay awake, if you just stayed awake then you would likely feel tired. If you took stimulants then you would not feel tired but your body would still be in need of sleep. I hope for your sake you have no tests to take today.

Don't go out. Go home and get some rest after school. You fucking idiot.

@NekuSakuraba: Well, you're either asleep already, or you're at school. But i suggest (as i always will) that you skip school today and just go and sleep dude.

Solid advice.
If you're so bloody tired like you say you are then there's little use in trying to follow what is being said if sleep's all there is on your mind.
And act more considerate in the future.

@TaliciaDragonsong: Well actually i was suggesting that he skips school entirely, regardless of his tiredness level. But hey, it's always more convincing if he actually wanted to go to school...for whatever reason.

Drop out.

#33 Posted by Rerejo28 (135 posts) -

Seeing the sun come up the next morning is always the hardest part of an "all-nighter". Since you seem to have made it past that, just keep your mind stimulated, sitting and not thinking will make you day-dream, leading to gettin' comfy, leading inevitably to sleep. I wouldn't take a nap, 'cuz you probably won't wake up in time. Just stay busy!

#34 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -
@TheDudeOfGaming: Oh me too, just saying there's little use going to school in this state, I know out of experience.^^

Did you stay up playing Batman?

#36 Posted by Rudeboy217 (1765 posts) -

Caffeine or speed. You choose.

#37 Posted by coakroach (2486 posts) -

Just sleep through school.

Duh.

Go to sleep. I used to stay up super late too (oh, I remember staying up until 11am playing Halo....), until I realised that there's no rush, things can always be done tomorrow, and I'm just fucking my own life up. I'd say your only solution is skip school and sleep for a few hours, and then go to bed early tonight. Keep it up and get into the habit of it, and you'll have a much happier life. Works for me!

#39 Posted by xMP44x (2193 posts) -

Skipping school is honestly the smartest thing you could do. You'll go in and get in more trouble for not paying attention than if you didn't go in at all. Sleep through the school hours and then hope you're feeling awake enough to do the rest of the day. Honestly, doing that on a school night is just downright stupidity. If you can make it until the morning, good. But don't really expect to get beyond the morning if you haven't slept a lot before and left your body ready. Just fight to the start of the school day and then lie down and sleep instead of going to school. Props to you for actually going through with the most pointless exercise ever.

#40 Posted by evilrazer (480 posts) -

The hardest part is not to fall asleep from 5am till 5:30am, after that particular period of time you will feel totally normal.

#41 Posted by FritzDude (2251 posts) -

Sleep and skip school for the day. It's better to be awake and feel instead of being half asleep.

#42 Posted by Levio (1782 posts) -

Toughen up. You need to show your body you're boss. If you can stay up long enough, you will gain full control over your sleep cycle and overcome one of man's most basic struggles.

When I was at university I had a two week break doing a project, my natural sleep cycle ended up being that I'd be awake for 20 hours then sleep for 12 hours. Odd thing is that a woman did an experiment on this at Cardiff university (Wales/UK) for a month in a box with no external stimulus including light (she had plates of food pushed into a small door in the box), and they found she shifted to the same pattern.

Just don't drink too much tonight, you'll probably wake up on the floor or regret things in the morning.

I've found that a big plate of turkey followed by a tall glass of warm milk can pep you right up.

Take a nap, set alarm clock for desired wake up time and there should be no problems.

#48 Posted by wolf_blitzer85 (5250 posts) -

You're gonna be fine through the day, once you get home though, I would recommend just crashing dude. If you wake up to go out, fine, but man better if you just don't and sleep.

#49 Posted by teh_destroyer (3560 posts) -

Stiff black coffee, lots of it.

#50 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

drink soda and caffeine. take a nap and put the alarm loud. take a nap when you get home from school. wake up eat dinner, go out, get home, take another nap for school the next day. take a nap when you get home the next day. hope that doing that will help get your sleep again. 
 
you should go to bed earlier if you know you have to wake up early.
