Have you ever stayed up all night to get a piece of work done?

Have you ever in your life stayed up for and extra 12-48 hours to pull an all nighter in order to get a piece of college or university work in on time? I think I am yet to but I know my flatmates have in order to getting mapping work and essays done on time.

I may have done this once or twice and I can say that this is not a good policy. It is better to get things done on time, without rushing or depriving myself of sleep. Cheers!!

Oh yes, I have done this many times in college. With classes and a job and being an athlete I barely had enough time to fit everything in. Sometimes it was necessary to pull an "all-nighter" to complete a particularly time consuming project. I remember pulling an all-nighter with one of my roommates. We had about 4 pots of coffee between the two of us throughout the night. The next morning I had an early morning practice and fell asleep sitting in the boat (I did Crew in college)!

I do this almost every night, i prefer to work at night time because most of my clients are from the U.S so it makes them easier to contact and design web sites, i do not have a pad job where i go out and work from 9 till 5 but i work online at the minute so i work for my money online, this is a great way for me to make more money, thanks

When I was in school I did a couple of allnighters. I don't recommend them though. It really takes a toll on your body and your mental capabilities. My advice is to not put it all off until the last minute. Give yourself enough time to study or finish the project instead of staying up all night and then trying the next day to stay focused and awake.
