I'm pretty straight edge
I don't think of coffee as a drug, personally. Okay yes it is addictive, that's true. However, coffee has a large range of nutritional benefits that I won't go into because surely 5 people will jump on me here and say I'm wrong, nature of this forum and all. I will add though, I do not drink alcohol whatsoever, smoke tobacco, or do any sort of illegal drugs. So I consider myself straight edge too. I also don't eat meat, and I'm currently on a no wheat diet
Do you work out after dinner or before?
I eat dinner before. Simply because I don't like being hungry while exercising. Also after exercise and showering, I want to be ready to just relax, not have to make dinner. It's unfortunate exercise doesn't give you NC more energy (over time). I feel like shit if I miss a day of not doing it.
I think I am simply just one of those people who needs a lot of sleep
That's how my gf is too. If she doesn't get 9-10 hours a night she's quite irritable. I honestly believe it's a matter of conditioning yourself. That said, my daughter is a night owl like me and will stay up all night if I let her. So maybe it's genetic after all.
That seems to be my natural cycle.
The few times I've gone unemployed for months, I ended up getting up at 4PM and going to bed around 6AM. I suppose naturally I am a damn vampire.
Sleep deprivation is terrible for an engineer. I am one too.
I am not an engineer, I am an IT tech guy, but sometimes I get dragged into engineering meetings, and have to engineer my own hardware/software solutions for problems. So I guess 10% of the time I'm an engineer.
it gets so bad that I don't even want to do anything when I am home because I'm too tired and can barely stay awake
As someone that doesn't sleep well, I don't operate well on that little sleep. Five or six hours? I need eight or nine of my crappy sleep just to function properly.
To both of you; If you're averaging 8 hours a night, I wonder if you're not getting proper sleep while you ARE sleeping. Have you ever had a sleep study
done? Perhaps you are suffering from some sort of apnea or something. I would recommend a polysomnography ASAP men!
Seems we veered the ship way off course.
I'll take her back into the brink:
So last night in FFXII
I took out my first level V mark. The Antlion in the Lhusu Mines. It turns out after you kill it, you find out indeed that one of the mine keys WAS dropped to Phon Coast below. But you are given a different key as a reward. So the thing is, there are multiple keys to different parts of the mine. It makes much more sense now. After that, I went back to Mt Bur-Omisace and absolutely slaughtered Judge Bergan. Feeling like a badass, I attempted to take out Zeromus
in the Stone Of The Condemner sidequest within the Stilshrine of Miriam. And, well, Zeromus kicked my teeth in. So I picked those up with broken fingers and decided to head on up to the Salika Woods. If all goes as planned, I will sink much time into this masterpiece JRPG this weekend.
