Catch up on it and keep a decent schedule, take power naps if you must.

I don't think the beers, huge dinner or bath are helping you any. :]

I read this article a while back, that was basically how you can sleep like a cat, or stay awake for only a few hours at a time and take a 30 minute nap and repeat throughout the day. And you'll be really energized during those few hours.

I don't know if it really worked or not.

Oh yeah it works, it's completely painfully difficult to get in to.

I'd do it, but taking a 30 minute nap at school seems like a good way to obtain a tattoo of a phallus on my forehead.

I would recommend protein, and les–Wait, is protein what makes you tired….
No, protein is what keeps you awake!
Yes, try that.
THIS NEW SITE SUCKS I'M LEAVING FOREVER I PROMISE, GUYS.

Oh god I'm so alone someone pay attention to me

Beer, large dinners, and baths all tend to make people sleepy so maybe you should cut all three out of your daily routine, or at least push ‘em back until after you’ve finished your day's doodling? I know for one that I can't create worth a damn when I'm drinking (coffee, on the other hand, puts the old motor into overdrive). So… less beer, more coffee maybe?

It doesn't sound like there's anything physically wrong with you, other than maybe dehydration. It sounds more like you're just suffering a lack of motivation. I think the easiest way to beat that is to realize that loafing around won't get you anywhere, and just force yourself out of bed in the morning and DO SOMETHING. Set a schedule and stick to it, get some exercise (that helps A LOT), take breaks every now and then so you don't burn out. There's really nothing to it; it's all a matter of not letting your mind hold you back. You're not physically unable to do it, so do it.
