Day 17) Write about pulling an all-nighter.

The All-Nighter
as told by your alarm clock

10:00pm Crank up Pandora and pour the coffee.

10:02pm You can do this! You can totally do this.

10:15pm Dang, girl! You’re a studying BEAST!

10:20pm Sure it’s time for a little Facebook break, you’ve earned it!

10:30pm Alright, keep rolling sister!

10:50pm Bathroom break (all that coffee had to go somewhere, right?)

10:55pm While you’re up, pour yourself another cup.

11:00pm First yawn of the evening sighted.

11:02pm Renew your resolve, this paper won’t write itself.

11:45pm Woah! You just wrote for a sold 45 mins! Congrats!

11:50pm Roommate stumbles in after a date.

11:51pm You can catch up for a second, it’s the polite thing to do.

Midnight Catch up session turns into a singles awareness event.

12:40am You seriously better get back on this paper.

12:45am Stop staring at the wall, just start writing.

1:00am There we go.

1:30am Two more pages down, not bad.

1:45am I figured you’d have to pee again.

2:50am Kudos for getting right back on it!

2:15am Need to do some research online to finish this point.

2:45am Catching up on celebrity news is not research.

2:50am Now we’re back on track.

3:30am Ah, click-clacking of the keyboard – just what I like to hear.

3:40am Now you’re snoring.

4:00am You better wake up! You’ve got a few more pages to write, lady!

4:30am What do you mean “How could I let you sleep?” I’m supposed to go off at 6:30, not two hours before.

4:45am Doesn’t look like you’ve made much progress, I’d throw in the towel if I were you.

4:46am Yep, that’s what I thought. Sweet dreams, princess.

5:00am (PS. You’re going to have some killer pillow marks when you wake up! LOL)

    Great article, Victoria! I have to pull my first over-nighter for work tonight so I got a good kick out of this.

      Hey hey, thanks for reading! And good luck with that over-nighter. You’re too legit to quit, my friend.
