    I have been, but when i dont have to copy anything down, i start falling asleep. he tells alot of stories.

    on a side note, in my last class we got our midterms back. i knew i failed cause i didnt take the second part(missed class)
    when my professor handed it back to me, he said "Great job" and got my hopes up.
    i got a 26/80, what an %%!**** [​IMG]

    I try to take notes, doodle, but its impossible to pay attention the entire time. I daydream 15-25% of any class. I don't fall asleep easy though.

    the best thing to do is just make sure you get enough sleep.

    i try to get around 7 hours every night. just avoid the problem all together.
