*NIGGA I JUST WENT FULL PSYCHOLOGIST*
i know this may sound like psychobull**** and might seem painstakingly obvious to you but right now i'm kinda jacked that i might be able to use the so far useless bull**** ive learned in college
try to think to that time at 1 AM when you start to nod off. i know it is pretty hard to remember things before sleep, but think of what that feels like. just not thinking and kind of existing. a lot of people listen to their heart. i, personally, listen to the clicks my fan makes. counting them doesnt really help, but just listen and keep the steady rhythm in your head. if you are one of those people that constantly thinks of things they need to do: get a piece of paper and put it by your bed so when you get those thoughts you can just write them down
I'm just gonna put this here because I don't wanna fill up a thread with annoying multiquotes.
First off: your coach is a ****ing dumb *******. Any type of practice 4 hours long is ****ing retarded no matter how competitive the sport. Especially if its everyday.
We have to drive to the river every day, it's a thirty minute drive, which makes it an hour round trip. Plus we gotta make line-ups depending on who shows up, we gotta run oars from the boathouse down to the docks, get changed into our spandex, grab our boats and then walk them down to the river, and then launch, set all the spacers/clams/footboards and **** into the right spot. The actual workout we do lasts like an hour, and during the most intense portion of our entire season, the two-a-days-spring break workouts only last like two hours tops. We just have all that travel and set-up time. But officially our practice ends at 6:45 and depending on the weather we get home sometimes around 7 or 7:15.
Then I gotta get up at 5am the next morning so I need to hit the hay by like, 9, sometimes 8 if I'm super tired.
Second: Three hours prior is an ideal thing put in that guide that will help most people. It won't magically make you not able to go to sleep if you eat soon before
Well I'm still not seeing it man, I always feel incredibly more prone to sleeping immediately after eating.
Fans don't necessarily cool the place down. Unless I buy a fleet of them that go on 24/7 or something. Usually, if it's cold enough outside, I just open up the window. That doesn't really do ****, though. I still end up getting so damn hot that I throw the covers on the floor, and I'm almost always naked while sleeping.
there are few reasons to not have a cold room. (buy a fan bro, modern ones even have timers so they don't run all night) pitch black is easy too. just close your blinds tightly, shut doors, and turn off electronics. that should be good. completely silent isn't a necessity there just can't be annoying noises. (repetitive noises like the ones a fan would make are pretty good) maximally comfortable... that reminds me: shell out the money on a good mattress. it's a large portion of your life.
I don't have any issues with noise interruption, comfort, or temperature. Everything is totally fine, man. My mattress is great, I can't really hear anything going on outside my door, the room is cold as it can get, I'm naked, and in the optimal position. Then I just sit there and nothing happens at all until usually past 1am before I nod off.
That sounds like a pretty good gig, haha. Is that the young lady you posted a picture of? Glad things are going excellent for you! Get back on skype some time, you pig. We can talk about how insignificant I am because I don't follow the same sports as you do .
Dude man, again, we don't talk enough and your biting sarcasm is very well masked by lack of voice-talk, y'know?
Uh, I've been touchy-feely with a few women, so I'm not quite entirely sure which one you're talking about. Regardless, I'm not with anyone right now, haha. I have a pen-pal who lives cross-state from me and I'd like to make things better with her, but the distance has kinda made things slow, plus it can be a ***** to get a hold of her. Ah well.
If anything, I'm not some confused little tween who's all "girl is real purty what do I do?" in the advice thread anymore, haha.
What's up with you man? How's things with that gal you were hittin' up this summer?
I have a good memory and go to a variety of sites. That one (and the ever popular "someone's wrong on the Internet" image) is from a webcomic called xkcd. If you end up going an an archive binge, be sure to read the mouseover text.
