    Sigh. Me also use to be able to stay up the whole night even when i was in poly. And now, i am ding my BSc, having such a hard time staying up. Coffee used to be effective. But now, i am completely immuned to it already.

    Sigh. If only i can be like those, read one time, can remember everything already!

    I've never liked coffee.
    So, i always drink green tea instead cause i can't consume sweet drinks at night.
    SUGAR RUSH!
    I don't have the habit of drinking sweet drinks at night.
    but on that day, i was way too sleepy cause i went out in the afternoon, so, i tried drinking red bull and i ended up not studying cause i just couldn't sit still.
    All i wanted to do at that time was to run and jump and to roll around.
    so, i ended up taking a bath instead and went to bed which was hard, kept turning here and there but just couldn't sleep.
    Eversince then, i never consume red bull anymore.

    but i realised that if i dont sleep after a certain time, i cant fall asleep! so if i need to burn midnight oil, i'll try n stay awake until that time LOL

    When I was young, I will sleep early like 10pm and wake up early like 4am to study.
    To keep yourself awake, instead of just reading notes, you can try doing past year papers, or just write something. Then you won't feel so tired easily.

    after 15 mins or so the caffine will kick in and then you will automatically wake up feeling more refreshed and can stay awake longer.

    not tried and tested though...
    my power naps usually last for hours.

    cant drink too much of that cause it's kinda "heaty". plus staying up late = "heaty" too.

    sometimes caffaine doesnt work anymore with the same quantity because your body is "immuned" to the effects already, same like medicine.
    and caffaine is bad... i think someone should invent wakeup pills as opposed to sleeping pills!
