So just like any other night this past month, it's 5 a.m and I can't get to sleep. Today's different though, because I have an interview in 4 hours! Hopefully I don't blow it... :(

So to pass the time I'm watching Anime and browsing forums.

What are some of the things you do when it's this early in the morning and you can't get to sleep? Do you continue to try and go to sleep or do you give up, like me, and try to pass the time?

I was going to bust you on creating a personal thread, but I see you pose a legitimate question.

For your convenience, I've added a description and allow the thread to stand.

and btw: I either watch anime, or crank up something like Battlefield 3 and tear down until I get sleepy.

Yeah, I figured making a thread about something personal would just get deleted, so I thought I'd be a sneaky snake and add a question, hehe!

Also, thanks, now I think I'll play some BF3 until my interview!

I wake up every day at 1 am and begin to eat cereal until around 7 am because breakfast is the best time to eat cereal!

Just drink coffee

! i have work in 2 hours and zero chance of sleeping, or at least zero chance of sleeping and waking up. fight it! and set up your alarm to a speaker just a fail-safe. Being that exhausted your brain kinda shuts out everything going on and youll snooze right through each and every alarm, consciously or subconsciously!

Sometimes I do some 'moon' yoga. It can be really helpful. Helps clear my mind and relax me and my muscles.

If i'm up that's it. I won't even try. I woke up last night at 4am and watched anime movies all morning, my sleep pattern is just horrendous, sleeping at 4am would be a good thing...

Well seeing as how i graduated i can spend an entire night up and not worry about it. I really only do this when toonami is on, any other time i just go to bed when im bored of staying up.

In about 30 minutes, my friend is going to pick me up to go to school, so I'm just passing the time by watching an episode of Madoka Magica (my first run through)

Gotta fix my sleeping schedule for school pretty soon so I'm staying up for 24hours. I got about 16 more hours.

I just play video games to pass the time and watch anime.

Well I just play games, try to see if other people I know are up and make them join in... Or watch anime.. But it's worse watching or playing games even if you aren't sleepy, only makes it worse xD I don't get tired doing any of those things, if anything I get more hyper active <.<!

Haha, I don't think there's been a time for a long while I haven't been up in the early hours of the day. When it comes to the inability to sleep, though, I generally find myself playing music and writing. I'm usually too out of it to pay attention to or do anything else.

7:07 am here and I'm still awake, won't be going to bed either, hopefully it will allow me to get to bed early tonight and put my sleep schedule back in a managable position rather then going to bed at 7 am everyday and waking up around 4 pm :/

It's your mind thats not letting you sleep, it's too active. You need to stop thinking so much and do stuff that will let your mind slow down otherwise you won't be getting to bed anytime soon.

I have sleep insomnia so I'm up anyways, I normally just do anything really to pass the time.

I understand what it's like being awake when you have work in a few hours and you still haven't slept, just yesterday I had to go to my first day of work for training and ended up over sleeping because I fell asleep an hour before I had to head out, thankfully the person who had to train me was late also.

Generally when I get up in the morning at that kind of hour, I try to fall back asleep. 99 percent of the time it doesn't work.

Generally I do some PC gaming or turn on my PS3 and drop a few hours on Metal Gear or something. Maybe even play some Persona on an emu or pass time playing the classics of my childhood through emulation.
