ok, i know this is under the topic of sleeping but i still think there is some connection, right? there are times when we just feel so sleepy and its bad because there are times when we really have to keep awake like when we're driving or we're in a very important meeting or discussion. how do you keep yourself awake? me, i pinch myself every o and then and i try to stare at other people's shoes(yah, i know its a bit weird) but thats the only way i can be alert again. hehe! what about you guys? any tips how to keep yourself awake?

When i am attending class lesson i will eat sweet to keep myself awake. I like to buy mentol mint favour because it is the fresh maker. The mint really make me refreshing and alert. So you can guess how much i have spent on sweet. haha... Other than sweet, i also drink water to keep myself awake. As i drink i will tend to go washroom after than, So i can't also wash my face to make myself refresh too. If not i will call my friend to ticker me when i fell asleep. lol. I sure will stay alert and focus for quite sometime.
