    I fell asleep in class

    Now I need to spend the next 2.5 hours studying. I'm exhausted and having difficulty concentrating for that and other reasons.

    I had trouble staying awake in class back when I was in college. I'm better now, but I still have a bit of a tendency to fall asleep in a lecture. As for UA, get to studying!

    my head actually hit the desk once. I was working 60 hrs/wk, carrying 12 credits and doing FT student teaching to graduate early. I had a 30 mile drive each way to school (closer to 40 with the job added in). I remember many commutes like in the Simpsons episode where Homer falls asleep at the wheel as he works at the Kwiki Mart to get Lisa a pony. Not sure How I didn't crash......

    I fell asleep constantly in college...especially the first year at the State school I went to. 50 min commute to the campus every morning at 0600.. Sometimes I wouldn’t even make it to class... I would fall asleep in my car in the parking lot... I remember one Geology class I took and I fell asleep every day.. I tried VERY hard to stay awake for the review for the final,,but fell asleep in that too I still have no idea how I got a B in that class.... My GPA dropped from a 3.8 in HS to a 2.8 that first year...then rebounded to above 3.5 when I transferred to a small school in San Diego. Class size went from 300 to less than 30… that was a godsend.

    Take something with you to eat or drink. Drinking water will help keep you awake...especially if you drink most of it early on and then need to leave class quickly after.

    the worst is when you coffee binge for too long (as in all semester) and build up a tolerance - so eventually it backfires by not working anymore - so now you're still sleepy, but also cranky and irritable from the caffeine and you have to pee, all at the same time - whee!!!

    Ah, nothing jumpstarts the day like falling asleep in class and peeing yourself in the process.

    The pointing and raucous laughter don't hurt, either.

    Hmm...perhaps the ridicule isn't such a good avenue to take. Jelly Belly Sport Beans with caffeine, then.

    Awesome! A new math/science tutor for Foo. As I'm so swamped at work, it's nice that someone else can help UA out.

    I hate feeling tired in class. I'll be ready to pass out in one class. Then when I have a break where I can go sleep, I'll be wide awake.

    In one of my classes this quarter the lighting is low in the room, the time is right after lunch, professor has a soothing voice, and it is a 200+ person lecture. Prime zzzzzzzz time. Even if I absolutely love the subject, I can't keep awake.

    I remember taking A&P - the lecture prof. was amazing - he made it interesting and I loved his classes. The guy who taught the labs however could have bottled and sold his voice as a cure for insomnia. I used to bring an old school cassette recorder to tape his classes because I'd drift off while there....but no good - when I'd listen to the playback later, he'd still put me to sleep!
