All-nighter

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

I used to pull all-nighters cramming for exams when I was in college. Now I wonder how I managed to go through days without sleep with my mental faculties still intact. Several days ago, while lounging at the pool side and listening to my colleagues belt god-awful songs on the karaoke and trade beer-induced stories at three in the morning, I kept asking myself, where is the fun in all of this? It’s not fun when your limbs want to fall off from sleepiness and exhaustion and your eyes are crying out in pain from the prolonged use of contact lenses, yet you want to stay on and not be a party pooper. Perhaps I am simply too old to stay up all night watching people have fun while I ward off the lure of a good night’s sleep.

I think your saying that since it's not really you.from what I noticed you prefer to stay at home and read books.(correct me if I'm wrong)

sometimes I felt that also...and wondering why people will go out every single night and party as long as they can.

I'm guilty. I'm too old, too. Haha. I'm always hungry for sleep. ;)

I think it happens to all o f us. I remember distinctly going home at sunrise and waking up for work 3 hours later and somehow managing to make it through the day. I would not try that now :)
