    all of my best blog posts come at about 1-2 AM
    unfortunately, I've been having a small problem.
    I've been falling asleep with my hands on the keyboard
    Fortunately, it's a laptop next to my bed, so i won't be sleeping uncomfortably.
    WHAT SHOULD I DO?
    I have so many ideas I want in this one that I can't seem to finish!

    Switch sleeping schedules so you aren't awake as long when you get to 2:00 AM. Between 1 and 3 is when I'm most productive, and I wake up at 10:30.

    Take drugs. It's just like being awake at 2AM.

    Move from your bed onto your desk. It is a laptop.

    Attach a knife to your chin, that way, whenever you are about to fall asleep, you will stab yourself in the balls, thus keeping you awake.

    Buy an inscrutable keyboard. The Asian ones are the best, but also Dutch are good.
    They are quite painful, so you will stay awake, howling in pain.
