The only time i hate college is when you have papers due that you procrastinate for. so ive stayed up all night by writting for 45 minutes and then practicing trackstands for 15 while watching NYPD blue reruns. i just messed up a no hander and scratched the paint on the wall. pretty sure ill have to pay for that. i am so tired.

hey, i just pulled an all-nighter, too!

had to get a friend off to japan for kyotoloco and mixpression and the ride to and fro.

i waited up all night for her to call. she called at 3:30 drunk off her bum and not a thing packed. got to her place and she wasn't there. still out boozing. i just got her into a cab, which i paid for.

some things never change.

now i have to go to work.

oh yeah, i have a cold, to boot.

good man. knowing nothing of the situation or relationship, i would've left her in her bathroom and said "when you wake up, you'll be in japan. if you have any problems with customs or hangovers, don't call me. peace."

all nighters are my bread and butter. They allow you to have a ridiculous amount of free time, and then the occasional night where you sit in front of the computer with a bottle of wine, a pack of smokes and some joints working like oxyclean on stubborn stains. They can be stressful, but when they are done at about 8am and you get to have an hours worth of sleep before you hand them you feel so relieved. Also when I get the paper back and see that I got a good mark on it I feel like some kind of academic superhero spitting in the face of good work ethic.

Now that I graduated, all nighters are no longer a concern of mine. Architecture schools are notorious for all nighters, in fact, we don't consider them all nighters, it's just a slightly longer day. When you pull so many 'long days' in a row and start to hallucinate, thats when you should worry.

That's why after 2 years of architecture school I decided to be an engineer... All the engineering students complained about the amount of work they had to do, they were admired by the Liberal Arts People, and I worked 2 full time jobs and took a full course load. I gotta say, it was easy after architecture school.


All in all, I gotta say that art and architecture students have at least as rigorous an education as Medical School students.

i went to school for photography, one semester i had 4 studio courses, it was murder, my other course was an art history, so i never left the building, there was one point where i was there and awake for 5 days straight, i decided to end it when i taking an exam for the history and a chair got up and walked across the room, the ride home was nearly impossible but i made it, then my roomate woke me up 4 hours later because he was having an anxiety attack and couldn't breath, i carried him to the hospitol, it was the most long and confusing day(5 days) of my life

I started to hear trains on time after 3 days of staying up. There was no train tracks within 20miles radius of me. thats when I realized I needed a nap, so I took a one hour nap and stayed up for 1 1/2 more days. Fun times, can't wait to go to grad for arch.

One secret that I learned from a teacher last year, that is pretty bogus, and most kids are like EEWWW no!

Here it is: Classical Music. Honestly dont say no until you ahve tried it. It works for some reason.


I remember in 7th grade I procrastinated sooo badly that I ahd to write like 10 or less days of short storys all from facts about like italy. I was up intil 2:30 Am. My mom and dad came home from a meeting in new yokr and were astonished that I was up this late working on it. That is a def. NEVER AGAIN.

230 is not late. Thats usually when I eat dinner when I was in studio. We had a 24 hour deli down the street from studio, so 230 or 3 is dinner/snack time or coffe/beer time. Your idea of time completely changes when you have to be in studio for days at a time. lunch is around 5 in the afternoon you loose track of what day it is because you haven't stepped out of the building for days.

I was tempted to pull an all nighter last night. Too bad i have to go to work. Last night was one of those nights where you get more accomplished in one evening then you will probably ever accomplish all week. Although today isn't as bad as i thought it was goint to be

Bread and butter is right. It's pretty funny how all my projects that were done last-minute always got top marks. Never did the smokes or weed, but some alcohol may have been imbibed. Half the time I just let my fingers take over and zoned out. My brain must have an auto-pilot or somethin'....
