>But I'm kinda insomniac, so it's not uncommon to see me online around 3 AM local time... In fact, if you have a cure for that not involving contracts with furry creatures, feel free to share it with me.

How about that good ol' method meant for jetlags and all-nighters? One day, either pull an all-nighter or force yourself to get up "early" (say, 9AM or so). Then force yourself to not sleep until the next evening, and repeat the process until you've reached an acceptable schedule. Works well if your sleeping schedule is just fucked up (you sleep an acceptable amount of hours, but not at the right time). Dunno about insomnia.
Also, it's easier to get your sleeping patterns back on track if you don't just NEET around but have a strict schedule to follow. If possible, try to have things you have to do in the morning; your schedule should get back on track within a few days. --Homerun-chan 14:17, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Schedule. Oh well, I'm a university student, so it's strict and not strict at the same time - every weekday it's different, but usually my classes start around 9:30. Well, I don't think I have an insomnia in a medical sense, it's rather some psychic problem. You know, my mood ain't very good lately, and that makes me feel so unmotivated that I don't even have motivation to sleep :D Maybe I should drop Madoka and watch something happier instead? Like K-On or something :D Anyway, don't mind me, I'd better not go all emo before the eyes of the whole Internet :D --KFYatek 16:23, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Like a lot of people here, I know that "too unmotivated to sleep" feel all too well. And it usually go both ways: sleep deprivation tends to make you feel gloomy too, so both problems will probably solve at the same time. Watching something funny/light-hearted might indeed do the trick (off the top of my head, I'd recommend Kyouran Kazoku Nikki whether you've already seen it or not, but there might be something more appropriate). Or you could take the other approach and watch even more depressing stuff to cheer you up (that's what I do and unexpectedly it works wonders)
Anyway don't worry, 7 days and 43 minutes from now, you'll be free! --Homerun-chan 16:57, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Coincidentally, the Madoka Double Thursday is also the first day of my Easter break, so there are too many reasons to be looking forward to that day! --KFYatek 17:43, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
First day of Easter break? I'm guessing they only give you the end of the week? And here I am complaining that I'm only getting one week instead of the two I used to have...
I'm in the same situation as you when it comes to sleep, as well, though I can go up to 4AM. Usually learning random stuff in Wikipedia, playing PSP or watching whatever anime I'm going through at the time. I can usually cut back to 2AM on weekdays, but I used to be able to sleep at 1 last year...
I have no solution for it, though I've come to accept it. I tried Homerun's solution, but I just end up going to sleep at the same hour but feeling crappier in the morn- I mean, when I wake up. :P
At least I make up for it by being a heavy sleeper. I sleep like a damn rock, it's been years since I've waken up in the middle of the night. Last week the policed ringed the doorbell (which is way too loud, if you ask me, almost like a school alarm on speed) and I didn't wake up. BrickBreak 18:11, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
>I tried Homerun's solution, but I just end up going to sleep at the same hour but feeling crappier in the morn- I mean, when I wake up.
Did you force yourself to get up early? (like 8-9AM or so). That's part of the plan: if you repeat the process for a few days, and really do wake up early, then soon enough you'll lack a lot of sleep and would be able to sleep anytime. The hard part from there on is not to fuck your schedule up again.
Also, your (KFYatek's) Easter break is pretty late indeed. Mine ends on Madoka day (... and I'll have to work 7 days a week for 2 months straight after that ;_;) --Homerun-chan 18:24, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I meant. I tried waking up early, but ended up going to bed at the same hour, just to feel even worse the next morning :( BrickBreak 19:01, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Um, do I have some other Easter than you guys? My break starts on Madoka Day (well, in fact, on the day after, but I've got only morning classes, so almost the whole day is free), the Easter is on 24th, then I have more than a full week free - the classes start again on May 4th. The university made such quite a long break because May 1st and 3rd are national holidays, so they just merged all the free time in one block. --KFYatek 19:15, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
PS, Homerun-chan, what kind of job do you have to have a schedule like that? :O
The public holidays are the same here, but for some reason I don't really get "they" decided to put the Easter holidays before Easter this year, i.e. it ends on Good Friday (aka Madoka Day).
As for my schedule, well actually I'm both going to uni (from tuesday to thursday), and working part-time (from friday to monday). Doesn't even pay that much, sometimes I wonder why I accepted that job ;_; --Homerun-chan 19:55, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Well, wo gotta consider that this is a really late Easter: I can't remember one so late in my whole life.
Anyway, when I was in high school it was common (well, at least here in Portugal) to have two weeks of vacation, with Easter in the middle weekend. Then they started putting it on the last one, and then they cut the first week T.T And it stayed like that when I move to uni. Well, at least I'm thankful it was on this week and not the next: the 25th is a national holiday and the 29th is the university's day, so no classes.
And by the way, with everyone calling it Madoka Day, it slipped my mouth today when I meant to say Good Friday, in front of my friends :P
Homerun, I have all the respect in the world for student workers like you. I don't think I could make it...BrickBreak 20:09, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
@Homerun-chan: ah, now I get it. When you said that you'll "have to work 7 days a week for 2 months", I thought you're working full-time and have such Spartan conditions. But it all makes sense now. Anyway, I feel sorry for you... hope you'll finally get a chance to rest soon! --KFYatek 20:45, 14 April 2011 (UTC)


Wa... wha... You're alive! :D --BrickBreak 19:29, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Somehow ;) I was so busy I didn't even finish Oriko until today and I still have to catch up with the last two chapters of Kazumi... But not busy enough not to watch Steins;Gate and Hanasaku Iroha... well... I guess I just needed some rest from Madoka, but I'm getting excited again ;) --kFYatek 19:33, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
Lol, Steins. I'm stuck in ep 15 because I'm watching it with an MSN group and one of them went to England for vacations. ...and I might need a rest from Madoka too, because my first thought when Okabe started sending himself back was "Nice cosplay, Homura." --BrickBreak 20:33, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
Ep15? (checks wikipedia to see what moment in the story that is) Ah, so that's it. (scrolls down to remember what happens next) Steins is a wonderful series, a veeery good balance of serious things and comedy. Okarin's lines are pure epicness, and that tsundere Kurisu(-tiiiina)... being at ep15 you already know how shit got real, but... well, believe or not, ep18 is a masterpiece of comedy. I haven't been bursting so many laughs while watching anime for a while - even though the matter of that ep is dead serious :D
I see on MAL that you're watching quite many of currently airing series - would you recommend some specifically? I used to watch just Steins and Hanasaku as carry-ons from previous seasons, picked up BakaTest2 this week just because I watched S1, and watched the KamiMemo prologue double ep - it seems interesting, but I have yet to watch the remaining eps... eh, picking up a series mid-season is harder than watching it week to week straight from the beginning... --kFYatek 20:46, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
First off, Mawaru Penguindrum. Most of the time, it's simply hilarious, but it also delivers a strong story. (not that the two are opposites). I'd also recommend Nichijou, but that's technically last season, I just caught up now during vacations. As one youtuber put it: "this is what happens when you give the people who made Lucky Star even more drugs". Usagi Drop is also good, but on the d'awwwwwww side. Truthfully, half of the anime I'm watching now were recommended to me as well, otherwise I doubt I'd have picked up so much stuff. And don't worry: I myself only picked up Madoka at ep 8... just when the suffering between eps reaaaaaally kick on. :P --BrickBreak 22:24, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
Lucky Star on even more drugs? That sounds promising :D But maybe not now, catching up with 18 eps seems too painful, especially for just a slice-of-life. I may pick up Usagi Drop if I get too bored, but I guess I should rather focus on shortening my "plan to watch" list a bit.
I just watched eps 2 and 3 of KamiMemo, so that leaves just ep4 to catch up with the broadcasts, and I must say that this is good. Not 10/10-level, but seems a solid 8 or even 9 to me...
Gah, thinking about it, combined with looking at my MAL list, made me do some reratings there... but I'm still not completely satisfied with the result. Steins is clearly better than Hanasaku, and both have a 9 right now. But both are way better than anything rated 8... I need to lower the ratings to make room for more diversity, but giving something lower than 6 to something that I don't regret watching just doesn't feel right... dou shiyou kana... ;P --kFYatek 23:48, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
