Strange Week of Sleep

This week my sleep patterns have been a bit unusual. I would frequently take extra naps at night, getting a total of 4.5-6 hours of sleep in a day. Getting through the night has been quite hard. I’ve been getting in the bad habit of “snoozing” – waking up after a nap and then taking […]

The Power of Peppers

I’ve always liked spicy food. Chili, General Tso’s Chicken, curry chicken, buffalo wings, etc. It’s gotten to the point where I call Frank’s Red Hot “weaksauce” and don’t consider something hot unless it has at least Cayanne, or even better Habaneros in it. For those of you who don’t know, habaneros are the hottest pepper […]

Motivation Lacking

Ever have one of those weekends when you know you have stuff to do but just aren’t motivated to do it? That’s how this weekend has been. I’ve acomplished a few things, like listing an item on Ebay, writing up ideas for my new website, and cooking some new foods. Other than that I blew […]

Wheat Oatmeal Crepes with Apples

This is a simple variation of the oatmeal omelet recipe I posted exactly a month ago. Today I decided to see how they would turn out if I substituted 1/4 cup whole wheat flour for 1/4 cup of oatmeal. I figured they would turn out pancake or crepe like and they did. Prepare the same […]

Finally Working Out

I finally have time to update the site. I’m now working out at school 3 days a week. I haven’t devised my entire workout plan yet but the general idea is 10-20 min of cardio with 10-20 min of targeted weight training. I’d like to make that 5 days a week but that’s just not […]

Forget Glasses!

December 23, 2005 was the first day I wore contact lenses. All I can say now is WOW. I don’t understand how I wore glasses for so long. If you currently wear glasses I highly recommend that you try contacts. You may be thinking “I don’t think I’d like something in my eyes!” Well, I […]

New Website Idea

I’ve been rolling an idea for a website around in my head for over a week now. I started putting it on paper (well, a Word doc actually) tonight. Assuming I can work it the way I want I think it has HUGE earnings potential with very little maintenance. The concept is a combination between […]

Sleep Hatred Continued

I’m happy to report that I feel great, despite skipping two of the five naps I will be normally taking. Here’s hoping that the new schedule will work well. One thing I haven’t commented on is how other people perceive polyphasic sleep. Nearly everyone I tell about it reacts like I’m crazy. I have to […]

Return To Polyphasic Sleep

My one week of reset is over. It was interesting to see how quickly I readjusted to monophasic sleep and waking up at 8AM without an alarm (on non-school days). If anything this has taught me that I hate wasting 8 hours on sleep. Since I lived like this for 24 years it feels normal […]
