Who wants to play a game called Spot the Asshole?

I’d reblog this on my other blog but people need to learn about this if they work in fast food and I have a lot of followers on my main blog.

DON’T FUCKING DO THIS, YOU CAN KILL SOMEONE WITH THIS. 

seriously though, i’ve heard stories of people giving “skinny” people regular soda instead of diet… newsflash: high blood sugars make you lose weight. a skinny persom that asks for diet soda could very well be diabetic… and then if you give them regular soda, you could cause some serious damage, even comas or death. i don’t care how you feel towards a customer, GIVE THEM THE DRINK THEY ASKED FOR.

There is a coffee place near my home and they happens to serve sugar-free hot chocolate being a type one diabetic this is great because it has about half the amount of carbs. This one time I ordered it the employee rolled his eyes at me. When I got my drink I thought it tasted differently but I was with friends and wasn’t paying a ton of attention. Later my blood sugar was in the high 400s and we had no idea why, everything was in order. I had to stay up all night to get my blood sugars under control.  I thought of the employee might have something to do with it. The next day I went back and the same guy was working, my mom confronted him and the manager and the guy admitted that he had given me a regular hot coco and had even put extra sugar in it. He tried to justify his actions because ” how was he supposed to know I was diabetic” and ”I thought just thought she was some chick trying to lose weight that she didn’t need to lose” He lost his job and I never went back there.  But it put be in danger and if I hadn’t caught the high when I did I could of ended up in the hospital.

Something like that hot cocoa thing is ridiculously dangerous. With soda the taste is such a drastic difference that while it is still dangerous you have a much better chance of immediately realizing something is wrong.

Multiple times I’ve gone to restaurants and had been served regular soda instead of the diet I’ve ordered. Multiple times I’ve had to stay up all fucking night just to get my blood sugars out of the 400s back to the 100s, or hell, even the 200s. Do. Not. Give people regular soda when they ordered diet. IF they ordered diet, you can fucking kill them by giving them regular, especially if they’re newly diagnosed.

Why pulling an all-nighter is bad for your health and your test grade! 

**The most valuable hours for sleeping are early in the night, so it’s better to go to bed relatively early (around 9 pm) and wake up early to finish the studying. With a fresh mind you’ll be way more productive in the morning

  1. Know your tasks: organize your study material and schedule so you know exactly what chapters or lectures you need to review. If possible, set a to-do list as specific as you can and go checking it as you progress. Seeing how much you’ve completed will motivate you to keep going!

  2. Keep distractions away: if you’re easily distracted by your phone, keep it away while you study. If background noise is a problem for you, try headphones or listening to instrumental music to help you focus. Find what distracts you and save it for another time.

  3. Have a healthy diet. It’s important to drink plenty of water and eat nutritious food so your body can work properly. Certain nutrients like Omega 3 can help your memory and can be found in oily fish, like salmon. Vegetables and fruits contain carbs and fiber which will give you energy and caffeine - from coffee or tea - is extremely useful, as we all know.

  4. Take frequent breaks, and use this time to get moving, stretch, go outside, talk to people. I particularly think exercising works fantastically because it keeps you awake and concentrated.

  5. Make summaries. If you’re not distracted by using a computer try to make a digital one so you save time. You can later print it and use this to help you revise. It also helps you stay focused while you read. You can make your own diagrams as well for better visualizing and understanding of processes, cycles, etc.

  6. Make flashcards or take phone pics of important diagrams so you can revise key concepts at the bus or while you’re waiting for someone. Challenge your memory!

  7. Don’t hesitate to ask for help. Whether being from a tutor or simply your friends, having someone answer your questions or explain something to you can be very helpful. You get a different perspective about the subject, see how other people learn (maybe they have great mnemonic strategies you didnt know!) and get to be more interactive. Also, on the other hand, when you explain something to someone it’s easier to spot your own mistakes and doubts and it helps retaining what you studied in long term memory.

  8. Set a routine. Try your best to wake up and go to bed at the same time everyday and keep an organized schedule (even if its in your mind or your phone). That way you have separate times to study, workout, sleep well and avoid wasting time, arriving late, having to pull all nighters, missing when your papers are due to.

  9. Spend more time at libraries. A library generally has more comfortable study places than you do at home, you’re surrounded by people who are also studying, there’s fairly a lot less to be distracted about, books are easily accessible and in most cases you’d be near labs or your teachers offices in case you want to go to that lab review or ask something. You also are less likely to turn your 20 min nap into a 4 hour blackout because sleeping over your books is just not that comfortable.

  10. Don’t stress. Pulling all nighters, having emotional breakdowns or just generally panicking over exams and papers is just not worth it. In most cases what you fear about those things never happen. You’re going to be okay, even if you fail. Because there are always second chances, especially if you’re dedicated. Most successful people I know got that far through perseverance. Which is something you learn when you fail, but refuse to stop trying nonetheless.

We’ve all pulled all nighters once or twice before (well for me that’s more like once or twice a week) or have even only had a few hours of sleep to run on, but that makes staying awake in class the next day nearly impossible. So since I have an unhealthy habit of pulling all nighters, I’ve been able to come up with a few tips and tricks that will help you make it through the next day. A lot of these you may have already heard of, but they seriously help. 

HOW NOT TO FALL ASLEEP DURING CLASS/LECTURE:

1. Drink Water:When I pull all nighter’s I typically bring a 24oz bottle of water to class the next day and make it my goal to drink all of it during class. Why? It gives you something to do, and when you have to pee you are not going to fall asleep.

2. Tap your hands to a rhythm:Make the rhythm more complex as you go. Here’s a Youtube Example. Obviously that would be really disruptive during class, just modify it to make it quiet, discrete and so that way it won’t catch the attention of your professor. I usually just use my index fingers on my lap. 

3.Chew Cinnamon Flavored Gum: chew with your mouth closed though! It’s already been proven that cinnamon helps with memory so chewing on something that also has a bit of a kick to it will definitely stimulate your senses and keep you more alert in class. Peppermint flavored gum also keeps you awake, but cinnamon flavored is killing two birds with one stone by helping you recall information better.

4. Eat Protein!Your body is working in overdrive now and you need to supply it with the fuel it needs. Soft boiled eggs are a great choice, but the typical scrambled eggs will work too. 

5. Eat an apple!  Coffee provides almost no caloric energy, so if you drink only coffee to keep you going, you’ll quickly end up with low blood sugar which will exacerbate your tiredness. An apple will supply enough carbohydrate energy for a quick start because it contains fast-acting sucrose and glucose. Apples also have fructose which takes longer to digest, which provides stable energy for a longer period than a cup of coffee (with no sugar) would. The digestible fiber in an apple is also going to expand and make you feel full so you won’t have to buy something from the vending machine and bog yourself down with nasty chemicals and preservatives. Go apples! 

5.Play Tetris: This keeps your brain active, but be sure to be listening while playing! Only do this if your professor posts lecture online after class or if you can borrow good quality notes from a friend. I also wouldn’t recommend doing this if your class size is on the smaller end. My general psychology course had 300 students so I was easily able to get away with playing tetris on long days. 

6. In between classes, walk fast:Neurological based research has shown that even small bits of exercise will help keep you more awake in class and even help you retain more information. I’m not saying walk as fast as you can and plow people over, Just walk briskly and lengthen your stride a little bit to get your heart pumping and your mind stimulated. If your classes are right next to each other and you have time to kill, walk to the bathroom and back, or the vending machine and back, anything that’s a bit of a distance away!

7. Hold your breath: If none of the above has worked for you and you feel your eyes getting heavy and your head nodding. Hold your breath for 25 seconds. This forces your body to send more oxygen to the brain after you start breathing again and refocus again. 

Hope this helped you out!
