Anonymous asked:Why exactly was it so awful??
They didn’t respect hard work or people actually wanting to draw. Plenty of the people in the class admitted they were only there because they thought it would be an easy way through uni, and said they’d never cared for art. Someone might lazily draw something in thirty seconds so they could get back to chatting, and the tutors would praise them for their ingenuity, their inventive, ‘carefree’ look which was so groundbreaking. Meanwhile, people putting effort into their work was put down as being unoriginal. If you didn’t draw the way they wanted, you were crap. They told me I wouldn’t succeed in making a career in art if I carried on doing it the way I wanted to, and I wouldn’t be a success in comics. I didn’t want to be there, the other students didn’t want to be there, and in the end the tutors didn’t want to be there. It was a mess.
Wow that’s horrible to hear, but sadly this isn’t the first time I’ve heard something like this. :(
Ok soooo I’m prolly just gunna stop doing polyphasic sleep. I’ll try something like a compromise later as suggested by wugs, which I like the sound of.
Over all it was a nice experiment, and at first I thought the tiredness I felt would go away, but it just got worse, and even more difficult for me to sleep in general. (I also feel it may have made my mood more negative as it went on, though maybe that could be the sleeping pills and the weird dreams it gave me)
not sure what kind of roleplayer you are but I advise swinging towards the "act in the way my character would, not how I would" route. You get a better understanding of your character, add new dynamics to a situation, and there's a greater gap between player and character. Also reduces metagaming and aids in overall plot movement. Plus it's fun to act in ways you as a person wouldn't ordinarily. (ex. Me: I'm low on hp I should probs stay back-- Character: I'M GONNA ATTACK THE THING)
Hahaha I don’t even know the ‘kinds’ of roleplayers! D: I suppose its a bit early for me to say, haha. But yeah I’m realizing I would rather stick to doing what the character would do! Metagaming seems to jsut complicate things, ahaha. x3
I got a new cat on the way home from college tonight!
He’s a widdle mynx with orange eyes and a lil bunny tail and he hobbles around~ x3
My cat Michelle is pretty livid, growling and hissing at every move, where as for the other cats like, they don’t know how to even react. xD
I don’t have work until the afternoon today here are more thoughts and reflections regarding tabletop rpg, character development, and expression under the cut:
Aaauuugh ever since starting pathfinder myself I’ve kinda noticed this disconnect between player and character I’ve never faced before.
It’s so weird to me! I’m still so unused to it that I stall a bit too much on my turns in combat (or outside of combat figuring out what to do or say) because its like “should I do what I, as a player, would think is best, or should I go with what the character I’m playing as would do?”
Haha…it doesn’t help I’m not as good with words if I could describe motivations. It helps that my character in the campaign I’m playing knows another player character as a sort of out to explain things in private with them, ahah. (Also makes it more fun)

Mental notes are just as good as physical ones, if not better because you always have them!If I may be so bold as to make a recommendation, assuming you attempt this again (and this suggestion is entirely conjecture from observations of myself), determine what ranges of sleep work best. I, for example, can get through a day with either an 8-hour sleep period or a 5-hour with an afternoon 1-hour nap. 7 or 9 hours, on the other hand, leave me feeling like crap all day long.
Haha, no, I actually was considering something like this myself! :D
Because I REALLY enjoy going for daily morning walks… perhaps I could try sleeping until 6-8am and then getting an hour or so nap at noon.
Normally I sleep from 1-2am till 10ish and things are ok but I’m usually a slow starter. When I first started this experiment the first few days I felt weird and maybe a tad strained but I was awake an’ kicking and getting things done. But now its like, eeghs I have all this time I wanna goof off etc. But I’ll certainly try this out! It looks like a good balance of both! Thanks. :)
Nope, nope nope. I just couldn’t. I barely remember turning my alarm clock off but I did it for good reason I’m sure.
One of the great benefits of doing this though was that I could go for walks in the morning after I sketch for the day and doing chores or whatnot. (I live in florida, it’s been high 90s to low 100s all week for the past 2 weeks) I otherwise just can’t go for walks and have to settle with pacing in my house…. which gets hard when people are around.
ANYWAY yeah I feel like my tiredness has started to seep into my daily stuff. I feel less like doing things than I normally would.
Also, a reply to wugs!
He commented: ” You may be acting against your circadian rhythms. Did you take notes on what amount of sleep seems optimal for you before hand? It may be helpful to plan based on that. (I am not a doctor, I only know the bare basics from my psych courses)”
Mmnh, I felt like I didn’t need notes, haha, but I made mental ones! xP
I usually get by with an average of 8-9 hours and that seems well enough. It’s why I decided to split the sleep into two 4 hour chunks. But yes, I’m sure as shipuupi that its screwing up my circadian rhythm, and I knew it’d do that prior to doing this experiment! Which I guess is why I thought “hmmnh I feel tired, but its not that bad! Maybe my body’ll adjust and get used to this” annndd its just gotten worse. xD
nnhnnhhn i think if things don’t improve ill have to ditch this polyphasic sleep thing. I’m feeling tired a lot more and even having trouble sleeping more often.
