So I never had the occasion to "pull" an all-nighter. Now I'm in grad school again, but since i'm not working outside the home and both kids are in school, I have plenty of time to work on the two papers I have this semester. Perversely, I have too much time - I've been puttering around with the papers for a couple of months now and would just like to get them finished. I guess I work better under pressure.So next semester, I've vowed, I'm not going to start working on my papers until nearly the very last minute. This will be a much more efficient means of getting them done. Which means I could conceivably be pulling the first all nighter of my life!
I wonder what an adult all-nighter looks like?
- Pink Floyd vs. Pink Pepto-Bismol
- Amphetamines -- "uppers" to keep me awake vs. sleep-depriving menopausal hot flashes (I don't actually get these, but I know more than a few ladies who would be more than happy to lend me some).
- Middle of the night pizza delivery vs. middle of the night existential angst-driven Entenmann's fest.
Paper's due tomorrow. Awesome! See you on the other side.
