    *sings a song of Six pence*

    Usually background noise is all I need to go to sleep. A fan, a tv, a radio. Just something to keep my mind from turning over and over. But if you haven't had much activity today maybe you just need to do some sit-ups...push ups...wear yourself out just alittle bit.

    Warm Milk helps alot of the time too. But I hope no one sleeps in the same room as you...some biological warfare may go down if you know what I mean.
    A book is a good suggestion as well.

    And if I were I song to put you to sleep I think I would be By The Get Up Kids - I'll catch you


    I didn't even bother looking at the video..I'm sure its full of cliche. I'd rather keep my own mental images.
    I haven't really listened to it in a really long time tho. Part of a sad chapter in life.

    "Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie..." err...ok, I sound like a twat singing that nursery rhyme. To get me asleep I generally play my DS and then next thing I know I wake up at 12pm with my ds still on and the GAME OVER screen sitting there to taunt me.

    That'll teach you to snake like a cheatery cheat face.

    PS. I just say that cause I never got the hang of it and my friend became an expert at it overnight. Basically ruined the whole game for our group of friends =)


    PPS. Wow, 4 and 20 black bird getting Baked in a pie?? Why did I never think of that as a drug reference for pot before? I'm sure that nursery song came along before 420 became a popular euphemism tho...

    And now I'll take my own advice and get some sleep. Good luck tinymonkey.

    I usually do some meditation to get into a relaxed state. Really helps and when I wake up I get out of bed feeling fully charged even if I've sleep for 4-5 hours a day.
    I can't do the video games or read a book thing since I focus too much and end up finishing the book or game and realize it's morning already.
    Do anything that will relax and clear your mind. Some I think even use self-hypnosis but lol wtf.

    Before that, it was Valium. [​IMG]

    EDIT: I can see why you can't sleep if you hear voices via the internet [​IMG]

    My friends failed calculus because they played Mario Kart way too often in class.

    I normally just listen to music or talk on the phone with people. I tell them in advance to hang up on me when I do fall asleep over the phone. But they never do and just leave the phone on when I fall asleep. Oh, I work out a bit before going to sleep as well. That might help.

    Not sure how they do it. I didn't have calculus with them, but they succeeded somehow. I'm glad I didn't have calc with them or else I'd be screwed as well. In university/college, it's easy to get away with that since lecture halls are big. [​IMG]

    I remember playing metroid prime hunter with my friend.. which was in the class right above my the ceiling of my head. We had it all set up. Turn on your game at this time, this person hosts, etc. It was fun. I got screwed over at times though 'cause the teacher got suspicious of me looking down all the time lol.

    I didn't think it was such a feat? In every class I whipped it out and played (of course, the teachers thought it was a book reader or calculator....)

    No I meant it as it's a good movie to watch when you can't sleep, not a boring movie to send you to sleep lol.
