Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

A short synopsis of my attempts to stay awake during Logic lectures.

  • I've written letters to friends and family. This works.
  • I've done homework for other classes, most notably Music. This works.
  • I've tried to focus on what Professor Warren is saying, and take good notes. Doesn't work.
  • I drank some iced tea before class a few times. Doesn't work.
  • Today I bought a bottle of Pepsi before class. But I hate Pepsi, so I didn't drink it, so I fell asleep. The moral of the story: drugs only work if you take them.
