Just took a "caffeine nap"
Achieve-IT!: How to Take A Caffeine Nap
I read about this a couple of weeks ago but this afternoon was my first need for it. I had last week off of school and didn't get my sleep habits back to normal before school started again this morning. I got to bed at 2am this morning and had to get up at 8:30. Six and a half hours is good for most people but I need eight hours to feel rested.
Mix lack of sleep and the first day back to lectures after my brain took a vacation and I was done by the time I got home. I poured myself a glass of Pepsi (I don't have or drink coffee), and downed it standing next to my bed and then immediately took a nap. I couldn't fall asleep right away and didn't feel good after 15 minutes so I stayed down for a few extra minutes. I've been awake now for 20 minutes and I feel extremely alert. I wonder how long this will last. :-)
