Yes, it is 2:31 in the morning

. . . and yes, I am still awake. Maybe not wide awake, but awake enough.

I'm writing a paper and this is my study break.

There was a group of us in the living room for a little while. It was just my roommates and I, having a study party.

Only my roommates went to bed about two-and-a-half hours ago.

But I'm not alone.
I have my music, and I run around the kitchen every thirty minutes or so.
And I have peanut butter and chocolate. (Don't judge; it keeps me awake.)
And I have my papers and books scattered around the floor.

And I have my pride. There is something just a bit cool about pulling an all-nighter. (Okay, I'm crazy. I admit that. But it's 2:37 in the morning.) I've never done one before, except for that time I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows all night, refusing to go to sleep because then my sister would have taken the book from me.

But this is a kind of co-ed pride. I mean, every college student pulls an all-nighter at least once, right?

. . . and I'm still up, writing this paper.

And realizing that I want to change my entire focus. This should be fun.

On a happier note, I'm autumn makes me deliriously happy. I had a Marianne Dashwood moment today . . . I have a passion for dead leaves.

So, yes, I am drunk on autumn. . . . or maybe just drunk on lack of sleep.

Time to go back to my paper.


  1. ah... I very distinctly understand that delusional middle of the night feeling! I have pulled far too many all-nighters in college... hope your "hangover" today isn't too bad and you can sleep a lot to catch up! :)

  2. Peanut butter is the BEST for allnighters! I've done several where I've stayed awake by eating a spoonful of peanut butter, then a spoonful of nutella.

  3. Megan! I was totally up last night writing a paper too! We should be friends. I have a feeling that your paper probably turned out better than mine though. It's hard to be coherent at 2:30 a.m. :)
