Lol you didn't correct me the last time I referred you as a him, so I assumed that you ARE a him.

I too usually sleep until afternoon/evening during Sundays and Saturdays as well, so no problem. Maybe you should focus on your test though, I play tons of games so maybe that's why I don't get that stressed in exams.

But this is the internet! Where the men are men, the women are men, and the children are FBI agents.

Stress anxiety is just a thing you learn to deal with in your own unique way. I, for instance, have learned that my grades plummet dramatically as soon as I start second guessing myself. Professors remark that I finish tests fast, but that's because if I start really poring over things, I make stupid mistakes in an attempt to not make stupid mistakes.

Also, sleep is a thing you do when you feel the need to sleep. My parents do not understand this philosophy, and believe that you must always be awake when the daystar is alive. It burns us! *hissss*

Yeah! Yeah! How are we suppose to sleep when we don't even feel sleepy? The result is staring at the ceiling in bed for like 4 hours or so, and that time can be better spent somewhere else... (Or take sleeping pills, but I don't think that's entirely healthy...)

I usually too submit the test as soon as I finish, and am usually the first guy in class who submits his exam... even though double-checking DOES improve my grade, sometimes. Still, that's too stressful and time consuming, plus my first answers are normally the best I could do anyway, so I rather just submit it right away (before a quick spellcheck maybe) and stop worrying about it.

Speaking from that college "sure, lets try it" mentality, they're not helpful. Sure, you get to sleep, but it's not restful sleep, and even if you find a pill that doesn't leave you groggy in the morning, that wakefulness isn't as productive as it should be.

I actually took one of those car sick pills in place of a sleeping pill, since they make you sleepy as well, even though probably not as effective as a real sleeping pill. But I still really don't want to be taking a pill everytime I go to sleep, not to mention when it wasn't even the right pill...

How I sleep: Smush my face against the pillow untill I can no longer breathe.

Next thing I know, my Alarm clock is going off and it's time for school

actually, for me, I found it really hard to sleep until I was 14.

Then It just hit me, All I have to do is lay there in bed and think about NOTHING.
and I force myself to sleep in 5-15 minutes.

Take that, Brain! You're not the boss of me!

Heh, yeah, I have a long and troubled history with sleep. As in, I could never go to sleep "early" and due to 2 hour commute had to wake up at like 5-6am even for high school, so I've been regularly sleep deprived/popping caffiene pills since like 15 lol, and things only got weirder from there. Sometimes I have periods where I hardly sleep, or I sleep too much and have to force myself not to or else I sleep through things I need to go to, or my body suddenly decides that it only wants to sleep during day not night so I basically have choice of 'sleep through work/class, or don't sleep at all' etc.

And yeah, for me, I can't want to go to sleep, I have to be doing something else and then I just fall asleep doing it eventually. Though funnily enough, I do have talent to fall asleep *anywhere* probably from all the years of being sleep deprived. Bus, train, floor of a public area, hallway people are walking through, library, anywhere.

I myself have some sort of heavy sleeping thing going on. Though make no mistake-- I'm as alert as a cat in my sleep, but I usually need to sleep for at least 10 hours or more to get a "full rest". 6 hours or more is enough for me to function, but expect me to fail every of my Will Save attempt against sleep unless there's actually something I must do (like classes, promised to meet someone, or something along that line.)

Though as for in-game related stuff, I guess we're going to "accidentally" forgot Erwyn at this rate lol. Not mentioning him does make it easier for him to rejoin however, that way we could assume that he was always there.

I have a brother and multiple friends who sleep at odd times or for odd lengths of time. One thing I will say for slavery to the daystar is it would make it easier to get people in your timezone together to do something. Can't complain though, because my american friends tend to be awake at stupid o#clock too, which is very convenient.

It's more that the Lizard Wizards are a large family. That's like saying you surround yourself with humans. The more telling problem is that all her mid-boss level minions are siblings, and will bicker and fight amongst themselves most wondrously. Her actual assistants are a tiefling, a tengu, and a bugbear, so there's variety there.

In order to get Pocus talk more carefully/shut up, you either need to: 1. Ask nicely, or 2. Be scary! Just not too scary, he might explode.
