2. How do you wake yourself up (other than caffeine)?
3. How do you get into the 'flow' of studying each day?
Whenever I try to study I always get sooo tired, no matter how much I slept the night before. I can only get into the flow if I'm alone and all is quiet -- something that's hard to achieve at home (with two parrots and a cat).
I study for hours each day, but I feel like I spend most of that time thinking about how much I wish I wasn't studying, how tired I am, how much I hate school... Oh, and caffeine doesn't work on me.
