All-Nighter?! All-Righter!

Well, I'm going to attempt something I haven't done since college.

The all-nighter.

In college, I was younger; I was able to operate on less sleep; my brain functioned more easily at night.

I don't think it works that way anymore.

However, I am prepared for this evening:

* Ample amounts of caffeine - check!

* A solid iTunes playlist - check!

* A nap under my belt - check!

* Sweatpants/fuzzy socks - check!

* Books/articles/compy - check!

* The pressure of procrastination and that if I don't get this done tonight, I fail my classes for the semester - check!

Tonight's all-nighter will be taking place at Shari's. Thank You, Jesus, for restaurants who provide unending coffee and have free wi-fi.

Hopefully I don't "Murtaugh" this up and cave after an hour or so.

I'm too old for that stuff! I stayed up with Stephen till midnight one night he had to work on homework and I almost didn't make it. All-nighter is a no-goer for me... I'm just getting to old for that stuff!

I've stayed up till 2am the last 3 nights writing papers, but I couldn't go much later. I start repeating sentences, I have to read and re-read and re-re-read the source I'm using, and I all these red squigglies start to appear under words in my paper.

Oh BIL...I totally hear that. I pretty much fell asleep at Shari's the other night and it was only God's grace that kept my face from falling in my plate of syrup.

And Sister 1: I love that you said "all-nighter is a no-goer." No, it doesn't rhyme, but it cracked me up all the same. =)
