How to Stay Awake During a Seminar or Long Presentation

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Okay, those of you who know you have a super-long presentation to listen to, here's the perfect ways to stay awake, excuses, etc.!

If you are younger and have school, the night before you must make sure to get some good rest. Go to bed earlier than your usual 10 or later. If you are older and have a job and must listen to someone give a presentation at a meeting, make sure you too get rest, no movie night or anything. In the morning, make sure to wash your face so you look clean and happy to listen to the speech, even when you're not.Now, after your long, relaxing sleep, do your usual routine that you do in the morning, EXCEPT...instead of coffee on your way to work, buy some energy drinks instead, one or two cans usually work.

Okay, you've drunk the energy drinks and now you are going into work (or school). If you are older and have relatives or kids, say to the boss and the presenter that you had to take (insert relative/child's name here) to the Emergency Room at around 1:00 in the morning, so if I look a bit drowsy, it's not you, it's just that. :) This should cover, just in case the drink didn't work. They'll most likely believe that. Actually, most bosses will! :)
Now if you are a kid and need to listen to a super long speech, drink your favorite type of sugary drink or energy drink in the morning. That should keep you awake. If that doesn't cover you, than tell your teacher that last night you were up finishing a project or homework, then tell them, "If i look a little tired, it's just because of that. :) Now time for the energy drinks to really kick in. When you are actually listening to the presentation, you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO KNOW WHAT IT'S ABOUT!!

Know what the presentation's about just in case there are quizzes on it, or questions. Say a presentation is on, 'The economy and politics of Russia,' or something like that. Now that you know what it is about, you don't have to pay much attention to the whole thing. Okay, now the energy drinks will help you at least stay awake and then at the end they should be working great and when the presentation is done, you will have energy and give a standing ovation. Then usually everyone else will join.
Oh, if you have to sit on the floor or a hard chair, make sure to take some Advil before you leave for school or work. :) GOOD LUCK! These will most likely work too!

Kids, make sure you are old enough to drink energy drinks. AND get your parent's permission before buying them. Sorry to be all parental on you, but it's definitely a good idea, so you won't get grounded :) Adults, if you hate energy drinks and prefer coffee, get a black coffee or some type of coffee drink that will give you a energy boost! Also, when you are telling your teacher or boss those things, make sure you sound convincing. If you are a bad liar, then I recommend rubbing your eyes while talking so the teacher or boss can see you're clearly tired. That way, (since some people can tell another is lying because of shifty eyes) they can't see any shifty eyes.

There aren't any dangers, except that if the boss or teacher can tell you're lying, like if you didn't have a lot of homework that night, she might get you in trouble. BUT then you can stand up for yourself and say, "How can she/he decide if I'm lying?"
Warning, if you overdose on energy drinks, that's not good at all for your body and also, if the presentation wasn't that good, then you'll be giving a standing ovation for NOTHING!
