How to survive studying IT, especially programming

Hello after a long long time!
Why haven't I written anything? It's simple. I didin't have time for writing. I'm a student of computer programming. Even now instead of writng an article I shoud be programming. But my brain told me, that if I don't give him a break he won't be cooperating with me. Since the school started I already have three projects to work on and deadline was three weeks since we get the assignment. So about one week left and I'm not finished yet. I work since eleven in the morning untill one to three o'clock in the morning. Of course with breaks, otherwise I wouldn't be here anymore.
I tried to google if there's some way to survive this and I haven't find out anything useful. So there are some points about how me and my friends are surviving:
  1. Coffee, caffeine etc. (Yes, everyone drinks coffee or take caffeine in some other form, it's our BFF)
  2. sugar - as it looks we aren't too far from overdose with caffeine, sugar comes to help us
  3. exercising - When caffeine doesn't help at all and we can't see sugar anymore, then it's time to do some push ups to refill the energy for the short space of time
  4. music - it, unfortunately, ends by procrastinating because there's no way to find the right music
  5. stack overflow - I mean the webside where everyone, who don't know how to fix some problems in his code, goes and if he doesn't find an answer for his problem, has to create a topic and take sometimes not so pleasant comments about his code, his style of coding or "such a stupid question with easy solution", oh I almost forgot about the best type of comments you can find - just the URL for topic which really didn't solve your problem.
But programming has also some good sides. You look and feel smart. Everyone thinks you wil be a billioner in a year, which is btw funny. But you aren't lost in a modern world full of technologies, and you can enjoy time spent without any of these technologies. Actually you probably can't even see them at the weekend or during your holidays. And of course you know how to protect your privacy, remember all your passwords and you know how to hide the fact, that you are an "IT man" to avoid the so unpleasant sentence "...so if my computer breaks you will fix it" (yes, it really is not a question; how horrible!)
