I've done this so many times, in my first year I had pretty hefty insomnia, I used to stay up all night and then go to my lectures in the morning then crash late afternoon. I suppose it depends if you have to actually do anything the next day

i hate insomnia..

usually when i start seeing light outside i know im screwed. i cant sleep when it's light out.
ive gone to the point where i put quilts over my windows so i cant see light shining through.

[do anything i can to fall asleep then.]

This situation gets really on my nerves, especially because I have a very rigid schedule in college, so if I don't sleep in the 5 or 6 hours I have assigned for sleeping, then I don't get to sleep at all, since at 4:30 am I have to be awake again. So it's a real bunch of anxiety, the next day I'm in a horrible mood as you would expect. All I can do is resign that I won't sleep that night and start doing something else.

I'm lucky it actually doesn't happen to often.

Insomnia sounds shit. Don't think i've ever had it. I do often though end up not been able to go to sleep for hours on end due to being too cold. I think i'm dead sometimes.

Insomnia is a bitch, I had my old doctor give me sleeping pills but they made me hungry all the time and he wouldnt change them, so I got a new doctor and he listens to me so he changed them. I dont sleep so much but I'm not eating all the time now.

This is a very interesting poll. I have also got difficulties with sleeping.
If I can't sleep, I stay in bed. I force myself to sleep. I try to think about nothing. That's very important. Otherwise I start worrying.

I tend to read or draw or paint or try doing something with photoshop untill it feels like sleep will come, sometimes ill just get tired quickly other times im awake for a day or two.
