Well another night without sleep insomnia as kicked my ass once again not a single ounce of sleep. I have a few major certification test to take today before i can hit the floor next week and start building hardware. (aerospace industry).

Any tips from the hive to keep me going through the day? I figured a little coffee when i arrive and to try to stand up and move around every hour. Hopefully this is the last night of this i got to the sleep center tonight for a sleep study so im hoping they will find a solution.

i don't sleep much and the only time i drags me down is if i don't drink plenty of water in the day or eat something in the morning. food and water will keep you going. drugs will drag you down as the hours go by. carbs are your friend

Redbull
One a hour should do you. I've stayed up almost 48 hours doing that. Another thing is make sure you eat. I've notice when I'm running on no sleep I lose my appetite.

luckily im still in my last week of training. If i wasn't i would be calling in and telling my supervisor. I sure as hell dont want to be at work making hardware that saves are service mens life while tired. One mistake is all it takes for the system not to fire and one of are service men to die.

5 hour energy drinks are good too. I wouldn't be throwing them back one after the other though. Staying on my feet helps me through the day. IF I sit, game over.

Good luck.
I had a buddy who went to Soldering School. It's pretty difficult from what I understand. They would give the students cards that were busted and they would have to use a solder sucker to remove a component and then reattach a new component. I told him that when he finished he should just jump up make and x across his crotch with his forearms and yell "Solder suck this, Bitch".

He did

One tip: Eat lightly. Don't eat a heavy breakfast or lunch. Food in yer stomach makes the blood go there; this makes you sleepy.
