The 10 Stages of Pulling an (Academic) All-Nighter

Finals are upon us. Friends, I have faith in you. Have faith in yourself. If you should find yourself headed toward an all-nighter, this is what is to come:

8 pm Determination: YES! IT’S GO TIME!

9 pm Procrastination: It’s inevitable


10 pm Go-time: Alright. Reread the requirements/review sheet just to double check you’re on track.


10: 30 pm Productivity: You accomplish a solid few hours of work but still have weeks worth of work ahead of you…


1 am Caffeine: This is your 5th coffee/Mountain Dew/Red Bull. You’re TURNT


2 am Hunger: Your body is normally sleeping but right now, you feel like you haven’t eaten in years


2:30 am Crisis: You start Googling things like, “Well-paying jobs that don’t require a degree”


3 am Final Stretch: Upon realizing that you have no desire to work at an electrical power plant (although it pays well and doesn’t always require a degree), you go back to your task.


3:30 am Math Mode: What is the lowest grade you can get and still pass…?


6 am SUCESS! YOU HAVE DONE IT! Your sleep schedule is now f@*#%d for the next few days, but you have completed your task and your all nighter.

Get some rest, you champion you.
