Pulling an All-Nighter

I feel like I’m back in college again.  Tonight, I pulled an all nighter.

I don’t think I’ve done this since in my senior year of college, I had to finish that last paper on the last day it was possibly due.

In fact, I think that’s how I wrote most of my papers – by pulling all-nighters.  It’s a wonder I passed any of my classes.

In my old theater occupation I used to work some pretty wacky hours, and staying up until 5am was no big deal at all.  The next day, I just slept in until 2pm.

What I notice from getting fatigued, is I often lose my place in the sequence of things I am doing.  I am doing a few work projects tonight that I have to get done before I go to Houston on Wednesday, and it unfortunately requires a lot of repetitive busywork in photoshop… duplicating layers, changing colors, etc.  Except I keep getting lost in that process.

I’m about to fall out of the chair… so it’s 5:38am and I’m giving in…

  1. Agreed. At this point in my life, I consider an “all nighter” any night that I happen to be up past midnight. After 12:00, I figure the morning has begun!
    So what are you heading to Houston for?

  2. I too pulled a late night last night, but you got me beat. I was only up until 2am preparing for Houston… and sadly there is still so much to do! Good luck on those final preparations. I’ll be camping out at Kinkos for most of the day.

  3. I always found after pulling an all-nighter that I feel like a dead weight the next day. And everything always seems just out of my reach, no matter how far I stretch. It’s weird. Anyways, good luck in Houston! 🙂

  4. I got to the point in school where I had such low caffeine tolerance that one cup of Dr. Pepper could keep me up all night.

    Tech week till 3 or 4am…moody actors and crabby designers…dinner from the vending machines by the de Jong…Ah, those were the days!
