Haven't in ages. Or, yanno, I'd have been a smidge more productive the last year-ish. I was in high stress at work at the time, and when you're either sick or have symptoms bordering on nervous breakdown...
No longer at that job. Yay. Been thinking about starting up streams again, but I have no idea when people would be interested or available to tune in. Suggestions?
Collabs maybe? They were fun to watch and it wasn't only you doing manips, a few of us were chatting at the same time. But a quality manip takes some time and well, it was kinda late in here when you used to do livestreams, so I wasn't able to watch it till the end.
Well we can do something like a skype call with others manipping and their desktop is on to livestream their view too Also it would be fun to chat with voice, not only we typing and you answering
Well, with coffee, I try to limit the amount of coffee I drink. I usually have only one cup of coffee a day, or none at all. I don't think it's the caffeine in the coffee, but rather the sugar that I add to it, and I never drink coffee without sugar, even though I get headaches from too much sugar(and too much ruins the taste for me, as well.). I do try to add as little sugar as I can, and prevent it from being bitter. There IS some good liquid creamers that do much better and allow me to skip adding sugar to my coffee, but due to my financial circumstances, I can't buy any of them as much as I wish I could.
As for sleep....strangely, a friend of mine and I share this problem. Sometimes, If I were to get, let's say, 8 or more hours of sleep, I end up waking up and STAYING groggy for hours. However, when I get just 4-5 hours, I feel like I can run a marathon. I was told that dehydration could be the problem, but as I read the symptoms, it seems like I shared only a few of them.
Wish I could drink coffee without gagging. It'd be cheaper. I mix up something with Sodastream, which is the next-cheapest I've found so far. Tends to help me avoid lying awake for 2 hours failing to sleep, amongst other negative genetic hand-me-downs. If I let myself get dehydrated, which, my level of caffeine use keeps me at high risk for... I get migraine. Sleep habits tend to be highly irregular... but the choices seem to be occasional inconvenient fatigue or constant bad mood. I'll take the mild roller-coaster.
If you are functioning well on 4-5 hours sleep, you're not alone. Get up, do things, have a productive life with extra free time. Maybe you'll adapt out of it, maybe you'll earn a shot at an awesome job, and be a guy who owns an espresso machine you use before you jog to work, shower in the executive washroom, and put on your suit. 3-4 extra hours a day lets you live an extra day a week. You can accomplish a LOT.
You sound a lot like my friend at work! Seriously man, he drinks Red Bulls and Monster energy drinks in replacement of coffee, since coffee goes right through him. Sometimes, at work, he's moving through the place like lightning, while other times, he looks like he's about to fall over and pass out, due to a lack of sleep(he tends to have more fun than most people that I know, especially since he's so well known where I live). I don't know how he keeps from killing himself! I'm sure his health is dropping from the way he lives, and I wish I could help the guy, but I couldn't even begin to know what I could do for him.
And, even though I doubt anytime soon I'll be getting a job where a suit would be required(and I love wearing suits), or has some sort of "executive washroom", I do feel that a better job is over the horizon, if I can tough it out, this year. That espresso machine sounds pretty nice, too......
Glad you like. I tossed it out during a friend's livestream. I was initially thinking "Yeah! I'll take her head off, move her upper body a few inches left, put the head somewhere, and it'll be awesome!" and then I got halfway and said "This is crap and it'll take me hours to finish making it look disappointing. I don't care anymore. I want to stop here." and I saved and ragequit. Then I went back in, disabled the head layer, added my mark, cropped some empty space and was done. I had done a manip, just not the one I wanted. Still more than I've done for a while.
