How To Sleep?

Recently, my already irregular sleep hours has been made even more inconsistent by the fact that I'm having my first exams in UNMC.

I normally have trouble sleeping before 2am at night (I think I inherit some sleeping difficulties from my dad), but other times I have to sleep earlier, for example, before my programming paper.

So how to assist sleep?

1. Counting sheep

I assure you, this NEVER works. It'll go like 1, 2, 3, 4, this is bizarre, 5, 6, 7, 8, so silly I have to blog this, 9, 10, 11, I wonder what happens if I cross the 10 000 mark, I'll go 1E4, 1E4, 1E4, 1E4... eh where did I stop? Let's start over again. 1, 2, 3, 4.

2. Self hypnosis

Well classic hypnosis involves a chain watch, swung in front of the eyes like a pendulum. This NEVER works too. How are you supposed to swing a watch in front of you when you're lying down? Use your brain...

3. Bedtime stories

Aw come on. Don't you have any logic at all? Authors like J. K. Rowling and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle keep me awake for hours. Literally.

4. Lullabies

Firstly my singing sucks. So I to experiment, I have to use my MP3 or computer to playback music. But then again there's always a need to switch them off before I actually fall to sleep, and that always wakes me up again. MP3 has another problem - if I don't remove it, it'll prod my body for the whole night. The worst is when you have an extremely loud blast in one of your songs in your playlist. All in all, it does NOT work.

5. Alcohol

Well, it works if you mean to get me sick as well.

6. Food

Didn't your mother tell you that sleeping with a full stomach is not healthy?

I even consulted my favourite cartoon character for advice.

Goofy's How To Sleep, 1953

I'm not sure if his solution is worth a try. Dam. Where are my lecturers when I need them to hypnotise me?


  1. hahaha... counting sheeps. classic!

    i wanna increase my "sleepability" as well haha

  2. i tried counting sheep again last night. failed again. in the end turned on my lights and continued studying for exams.


  3. masturbate!

    It helps!

    The true way of life - masturbate

  4. zzz. i think you need a psychologist before you turn to a sexaholic!

  5. it's either that or this:
    he needs to find a place to stay first.

    no place to stay = cannot *ehem*


  6. nothing can stop such an enthusiast like him, don't worry =D

  7. LOL... maybe he should consider staying in the sperm bank... accommodation provided, and he can do what he likes whenever he want to... can store it up also hahaha....

  8. eh his worms worth storing lol. surely high demand =D
