But it's more of a kick in the ass kinda thing. Once school starts up again, my schedule is gonna be 10x worse than ever before, and sometimes I tend to nod off around 4th or 5th hour, and I've never been much of a morning person... at all, really. So I figure a bit more caffeine in my life can't hurt!

On the contrary, but OK. :P

I know it's hard man, but I've made a change for the better (you won't believe this) and have been sleeping earlier and waking up earlier (due to work, I suppose). It's really worth it - the extra sleep. Caffeine isn't horrible on occasion, but sleeping earlier is the best kick.

Wow, that's the last thing I'd expect from you, Mr. Screwed Up Sleeping Schedule! :lol: Meh, maybe I can try that newfangled "sleep" thing sometime....

I personally get by on...nothing. I don't know how I do it. Maybe, just maybe, I get by on pure awesomeness.

Yeah man, no caffeine daily or at all is great.

Why all the caffiene? Energy drinks, energy gum, energy soap... Ehat's next, energy air? Energy IV? I have a cup of coffee in the morning and that's it. I only get diet soda, which has less empty calories, no sugar, and no caffiene. (I'm trying to not look like I sit in front of a computer all day. :P) Wean yourself off most of that caffiene, it's not good for you and you'll feel better after getting real rest. I know I did.

Woot! What kept me up last year was in 4th period, I had P.E... and heres the kicker: I had to get at 5:30 just to get ready for school by 7:00... torture!

and I actually hate soda, so I actually avoid caffeine :shock:

and Bicostp: yeah, they will sell air thats infused with caffeine... what, do they want you to get addicted to it? :lol:

I know that (like everyone else) this isn't really helpful, but when I play any sport I try to imitate the pros. So when I play tennis, I spit on the ground a lot and make loud grunts like "UGH!" and "AAHG!" when I hit the ball. Works for the pros, so it works for me. Good thing I don't ever play baseball...

I play tennis and our tryouts are on monday at 9. I personally just try to keep the ball in by not hitting so hard of shots and not trying to make ever shot a "winner". I just let the other person mess up and it works great. If you have consistent shots they will notice. So just try to keep them in and work on your swing. Coachs look for nice spin and the sort. I didnt make varsity last year (even though i beat everyone i played) because my swing was off. I would slice the ball instead of actually hitting it. Just practice before hand and youll do fine. :)
