I distract myself long enough to fall asleep. Sometimes I think about really cool shit, like how big the universe is, what its made of, where people come from, and stuff like that, and then I think they're putting robots on mars, and we're getting close to finding life there. aliens, man, aliens. and i think to myself about how piddly human concerns really are. because if the universe really is that big, and mars really is that far away, and, there's life on it too - we're not alone, and, moreover, we can do anything. that keeps me motivated and on the nerdpath for awhile.
