My sleep schedule is a bit messed up. I usually sleep between 11PM and 2AM, so waking up early and tired is common (usually not later than 9). I've been recommended chamomile tea, and I tried it out but stopped at some point. I need to make one for myself again (or just adjust my sleep hours somehow). At least sleeping during the afternoon kinda makes me in the mood.

Please forgive me for my belated response.

I have had chamomile tea before, a number of times, and it is indeed helpful in calming me. However, even with the usage of chamomile I still get the occasional time where I just can't fall asleep. I could use it more than I already do, which may further alleviate my sleeping problem, but I don't exactly have interest in increasing my chamomile consumption, as I fear (accidental) overuse.

Melatonin is a big no for me, as I am not into taking medication unless I really need it. As far as I know, I don't have anything that emits a strong electromagnetic signal in my room, (I hate cell phones so I don't own one) although I do have a landline phone in an adjacent room.

I kind of just trudge through my Insomnia, I guess it is a rather cloddish way of going about it, but it seems to "work" for me. Regardless, I thank you for your suggestions.
Finally, I just finished school. I've been really inactive here due to rushing to get homework done at the last possible minute LOL. I plan to (actually) work on my Super Mario World hack now, hopefully I don't get into any more stupid drama on Discord.

I think the best thing for your productivity might be avoiding the live chat environment. It is amazing how much time you can lose on compulsive exchanges and anticipating responses since everyone is/seems to be "present." If you are concerned about drama, regardless of what transpired in the past, then IMO a forum provides a better communication experience in my opinion since you're not "on the spot" and get the opportunity to express a thought as clear and complete as possible in a way that gets lost when speed of communication is favored. It is a lot more subject-oriented to find what you are looking for without "noise" to distract you. It is also psychologically easier to disengage from the forum and return to your project because it is not as active.

Just look above you...
If it's something that can be stopped, then just try to stop it!
I agree 100% that Discord and chats in general can be super distracting, and when I want/need to be extra productive I refrain from opening Discord at all. On the other hand, I certainly need some distraction from time to time and I personally enjoy chatting with people in our Discord... most of the time at least, and in particular channels I guess lol.

I mean yeah, Discord (well, chatting sources in general) can be super distracting for better or for worse. I don't find myself using it all the time, as I need to slack off to focus on real life. I don't know what was the origin of the "drama" you mentioned, but it's best to burst in once you are with your mind cleared and up to talk.

It was one thing on another server where the owner got mad at some people for datamining. Something else happened and it was loosely related to Discord, but mostly not.

100% agreed. Whenever I'm doing homework, it's distracting but I have no problem with just closing it and getting on with whatever I want to do. I keep it open in the background a lot of the time.

A little late (ok, a lot), but same. I really like the kind of quietness you can get only by staying up very late or very early. It's a kind of peace I always try to seek whenever I study or work. It helps me concentrate.

Incidentally, it's 1 AM where I am while I'm posting this. Maybe I should go to bed now...
Started working at my local Burger King today, and so far the job is a lot better than I expected. One of the upsides of COVID-19 is that since the dining room is closed my interactions with customers are minimal and it’s gonna stay that way long into the foreseeable future. I have to hide my hair in my hat which makes me a little dysphoric but it’s a food/general safety thing so I get it and it’s not a big deal. My manager seems cool too, he gets straight to business and didn’t try to sell me the “We’re a family here” shit which I appreciate.
Nice to hear, Samantha! I wish you well with the job #tb{:)}
That is great news! Hopefully this'll work out long term. #smrpg{<3}

I've been experiencing freedom since I sent in my report, but I'm going to start a new research project soon to keep myself busy, and classes will potentially return very soon in online format, which I'm... not a fan of. Uni is no longer debating whether it'll happen but when it'll happen, and I overheard it might be less than a month away.

In a way it's not great to keep delaying my course, but I'm honestly leaning towards prefering that over online classes, because that format is just not very good. And honestly, the whole world has frozen, so what's me losing a single schoolyear in perspective?

Yeah I've heard bad things about McDonalds
Congratulations on the new job, Samantha! You also got this stuck in my head and have my mind set on double cheeseburgers for dinner. Also be sure to take good care of your hair since always having it under a hat actually isn't good for it. Use some of your new money on argan oil-based hair products (OGX is good, blue bottle with brown cap) and enjoy silky soft hair as your first big treat to yourself, IMO.

@Koopster, I don't know. Maybe you want to tough it out and get it done despite the annoying setup. I personally wouldn't want school hanging over my head for an extra year, and that year you would be done with it - who knows - really amazing things could happen that wouldn't if you still had to sit in a classroom. Time does not stop just because the world has, and you are getting older.

Just look above you...

I've just invested myself in online classes to get my driver's license for cars (I'm not a fan of the online format... blame this pandemic). I know about the basics to drive, but I wanted to boost my abilities and know a bit more. Here it's the theoretical classes that come first, and then the practical classes (actual driving). I think that'll be good.

I too don't like school hanging over my head for an extra year, although I'm looking for more courses since I'm practically doing nothing currently.

I'd rather get eaten by a whale than hang my head over school for an extra class. I must get to work and actually graduate successfully next year. Otherwise, I'd have to go through hell of studying for longer than I should.



For some inexplicable reason, scandals don't get McDonald's down and they don't impede them in staying the largest fast-food chain, being far larger than their rivals.

For example, McD were accused of decapitating chickens when they were still aware. PETA also attacked KFC for it.

Other examples include illnesses of raised animals, kids working on Happy Meal toy production, advertising their products as nutritious, or various environmental problems.


Burger King for a change had problems in Australia as an outlet with such a name had been existing there before the American Burger King aimed for this market. Since then, the chain is known under then name of Hungry Jack's there. Scandals weren't as meaningful as those of McDonald's.


BK's food tastes better in my opinion and I believe isn't as unhealthy as McD's, but still. When I think of burgers from fast-food chains, Burger King is my primary thought. If it's impossible, I prefer KFC or McDonald's. If there's no KFC nearby, the chain known for its golden arches is the only opportunity. I only visit McDonald's a few times in a year, not only when there's one available while competition isn't available, but also when my friends feel like going there.
I have a Discord server as well!

That is true. I perhaps have this "a year loss is no big deal" mentality due to how often I bring it up as encouragement to people who fail classes and end up delayed by a semester or a few - and believe me, those are not rare cases. I am young and personally I've never lost a school year or uni semester and am a year earlier than what's considered standard, so it's probably much easier for me to think that way, now giving it a second thought... but sometimes, there's not much you can do but think that way to not go crazy.

I'll have to tough it out if my university decides so, anyway, so what I think is not that important. I'm a bit concerned with the more practical stuff though - this semester I would take the class about the actual practices in construction sites (civil engineering here), and I really don't think taking that with no possibility of actual field classes is a good idea. Hopefully they'll consider those things.

There'll always be scandals in food chains (and just multinational companies in general, really), but they're just way too big. Their public is much larger than any scandal can ever reach, and people'll eventually forget them or just bundle them with the fake news that come around from time to time.

I rarely get fast food, but I'll usually go for Burger King or Bob's for burgers and fries and a milkshake, or Subway if I want to feel less shit for eating.

Food chains will always get involved in scandals no matter what. It's inevitable. Losing customers is also a consequence, but over time new customers will show up regardless of the controversies.

I haven't eaten in a McDonalds in a while (my sister worked there once). I'll usually have a burger, some fries and occasionally a milkshake. I like to go to Subway, though. Big majority of the time I eat burgers from snack tents, and some of them taste like shit but there are others that taste just way too good.

They have to consider the practical side of things, too. My gf is doing mandatory internship in a pharmacy, and she tells me she has to write all the hours she worked on on a paper and deliver them, with her online classes only starting at the end of August.

If it was on a school (like mine was), it would be a totally different matter altogether since you must download a live platform and then have your pupils be live as well.

burgs are nice. had a free big tasty + fries + fry sauce + coke yesterday thanks to my brother's mcdonald's app thingy (had to pay for chicky nuggs tho)

i just had a salad for lunch today because i wasn't hungry though

im recovering from my illness, just need to take these shots that im gonna start doing at home (haven't recieved them yet, i need to wait until the pharmacy has them in stock and then i have to go meet the nurse so she can teach me how to administer them).

also had an anxiety attack over overworking myself and expecting too much from myself in ASM yesterday. had a small discussion on #reality-corner over it as well as in another server and im doing okay now. gonna try to go to Von Fahrenheit on Discord for when i need urgent ASM help since i'm a very drive-driven person and i dont like interrupting my mojo when im working on something.

i'm also thinking of learning HTML, CSS and JavaScript and signing on to like Upwork or smth to get money while at home as a freelance web dev. i just worry about building up experience first

Upwork does charge fees for the amount of money you get from a client, lowering as time goes on and you get more money from said client (20% then 10% then 5%) but i honestly just want some money flowing on my end so i don't think i'd mind the fees too much considering i dont spend too much for now? I spent like 1 euro on coffee with milk today (went out for a walk too so)
