    you left it too late. due to lack of time your essays won't be your best pieces of work. i guess you have to learn this lesson the hard way. never leave anything to the last moment. anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
    Dude i only got them yesterday and i had been doing them since i got home yesterday from college, the only reason it took me long is because he hadn't taught us some of the stuff on the essay so i basically had to do my own learning before i could do them

    If we didn't have to sleep we'd get so much more done.

    I've only actually done an all-nighter-last-minute essay twice...

    and oh boy. technically once it was more than an all nighter - it was a series of last-shot days for very difficult courseworks where I'd stay up virtually all night, each day, to get in the last ditch reading material to perhaps do the work.by the end of it, because I had been averaging 10-15 energy drinks PER DAY, I started literally losing my mind - I started to hallucinate as if I had taken just a little bit of LSD, and I couldn't walk straight. that was actually the time I did better than the other time though. on that time, I got a 55% (and to be fair that was amazing because I didn't even know if I'd scrape a 40) and on the other time, I got a straight 40 *only because* I had actually restarted the essay on that same day - so a 40% given that time frame isn't *awful*...

    but yeah, all nighters are horrific - don't do them. be safe. do that work on time.

    Ah essays, thank god I do maths and never have to do one of those in my life ever. I have done all nighters before, they've been quite fun. I put on loud not rock but edm/house music. It's pretty good feeling powering through work while bopping on your seat high on caffeine and sugar. Don't recommend doing it too often though. Good luck with it though :P.

    nah, I don't really tend to drink etc, I guess al I would need is a fizzy drink, and some hot chocolate to stay awake (doesn't make me tired for some reason) - that helps me study
