All-Nighters

Alright here you go Mowen.

 

Just coming off an all-nighter right now (my second one this semester).  Had to read a novel tonight and write a six page paper on it.

 

Here's the question:  When was the last time you stayed up all night and why?

A Level exams for one of my History papers. Got an E in it. Won't do it again.

 

Edit: Actually, no. One crazy night of FM in the summer which saw me go to bed finally at about 8am.

 

You mentalist :lol:

 

Quite often don't get home until about 6 or 7 after a night out in London, more a late bedtime than an all nighter though. Used to have all nighters at uni quite a bit just because I could, never did it with work though.

I think it should only count as an all-nighter if you don't go to bed until the following night, right? Going to bed in the morning doesn't count... that's just staying up late.

 

I was kind of thinking this as well.  I mean, I will come home and take a nap after class is out today (12:45) but it will only be a few hours as I have some stuff to take care of this evening.

I've stayed up all night plenty after clubbing/afterparties (in my youth), never for school/college work. I was always amazed when my mates said they'd not been to bed because they'd been doing coursework etc. Always reached a point where I thought 'fuck it, it'll have to do' and went to bed and just got up earlier in the morning if necessary. I don't think I ever worked past about 11.30pm, I'm no good if I'm not concentrating on something so I never saw the point in staying up all night. I've not been to Uni, mind, so just talking A-Levels and a college course since.

 

After clubbing normally I would end up in bed mid-afternoon, but a few times for various reasons I just powered on, aided by Red Bull/Pro Plus until the next night. It's not that bad really.

Longest ever all-nighter I've pulled was back in 1994, finishing my final year dissertation when I had a 12.00noon Monday deadline, and a week before the deadline had only got about a fifth of the work done, so I sat at my desk, typing, from Friday morning at 7.00am working through until Saturday at 4.00am, then had a short kip and worked from 10.00am that Sat morning non-stop through until the Monday, when I met the deadline, went to the pub for a drink afterwards but fell asleep in the pub at 2.00pm.

 

52 hours awake and I swear it nearly fucking killed me. Fucking students, eh? :laugh:

One day in year 12, was a school night, stayed up all night playing FM then went to school, went to sleep the following night.

 

End of year 12 at the end of AS exams, went on a complete weekend bender, so I stayed up from about 9am on the Friday til about 3pm on the sunday (which was my birthday)

Don't think I've done many all nighters, but definitely none for uni, I think I just wouldn't be able to concentrate past 10-11ish.

 

The last time I stayed up all night was when I came back from Florida, it was an over night flight and didn't get a wink of sleep, and as soon as I got back I had to go straight to Wembley stadium to watch the Foo's. Shattered by the end of it but well worth it.

About 2 months ago, pills.

 

I read this as a full on session, out for the night necking pills/mdma powder the works.  Going back for a chill out to mid day the following day.

 

Not about some faggot pen pushing tart reading books for an exam.

 

All-nighter means getting off your face on gear not reading books.

 

FFS.

I concur.  I've stayed up all night loads of times to do uni work and that, but that's just being a dafty and leaving things til the last minute.  An all-nighter is being a dafty in a completely different respect.

About 10 times at Uni, whether revising or doing coursework. Also once at Uni when playing FM. Basically just sat in my mates room playing network FM all night, while on a 3rd computer he did his day job which involved viewing hundreds of porn photo galleries and writing a 1-line summary . Tasteful things like 'Old granny fucked up the arse by big black cock'. Unsurprisingly, after a few hours, the summaries got less and less unique.
