    Why oh why do we do it. We know our assignments are due in months before the hand in date yet we still leave it all to the last minute.

    My weekend has been spent sat in front of this screen writing my Chartered Institute of Marketing Postgrad Diploma up. 24k words in total 12 were due in in Jan the other 12k all due in for 2pm tomorrow. I still have circa 3.5k to do and am due in work at 9.

    Coffee is bubbling away and I am taking five before I go at the last parts of it. I used to pull all nighters all the time when I was at uni. They are not recommended as you are approaching 30!

    Vision is all weird and I am rambling in my work. I need words of encouragement from the night owls of OcUK to see me through these dark hours. Feel free to run a sweepstake to bet on what time I go to bed.

    If I get a chance to sleep...... :(

    Get up and run down the road naked.

    That'll wake you up.

    :edit: Damn, beaten to it, albeit not quite the same.

    know the feeling, i've been procrastinating something terrible over this weekend, rather than finishing writing up my project. I think i'm just too looking forward to the time off after its handed in, so now i'm stuck pulling the all nighter.

    I've been in many situations where I should've pulled all nighters, but instead did 4 pages and went to sleep :\

    :confused: The milkman just came. No wonder our milk is always warm!

    Not a bad job that really, I bet he is finished before 4am. Start at 1/2 am and it hardly impacts on your day.

    Got under 2k words now w00t!

    I used to enjoy doing all nighters, although that was due to playing CS, rather than actually having something important to do!

    I find if you are really struggling, best thing you can do is pretend it is morning - have a shower and eat breakfast. Anyway good luck fella :)

    Woohoo! Just finished making notes on Socialism for my A2 politics module!
    Albeit, the only reason it took so long is because I kept browsing these forums, and helping out with another site, and playing disciples :p
