Yes I have, and I dont want to do it again, jajaja When I was having a lil' bit of trouble with one of my papers for Biology, I stayed up all night doing it... when it was like 6 in the morning I pretended to be sleep so my mom wouldnt figure it out, but, sadly, I had to get up 5 minutes later to be at school... during the day I felt my eyes heavier and I had a lot of trouble staying up, so when I finally got the chance to lay in my bed, at midnight, I felt so happy!!

I haven't done that..., sleep is more important to me than a pressing assignment. Most of my grades were made up while I was in class and not homework assignments. If I got the homework done fine, if I didn't well..., I lived with it.

I have been awake more or equal to 24 hours continuously many times but the highest I made without sleeping was 34 hours when I was working at the aiport and for the inauguration ceremony, had to work on the computer network installed. Had to test and make it ready for the first flight to be operational and on system. It very an exciting experience as I slept for almost half a day after waking for that long.

Every Sunday, I am forced to stay up more than 24 hrs, due to my work schedule and my husbands work schedule. It is torture.

That happens to me a lot. But not for deadlines. I do 24 hours of work if we are asked to render Sunday overtime. I hate coming to work on Sundays, so instead i stay here and work for 24 hours so i'll be allowed not to come to work on Sunday antmore. HEhehehehe.

well 1 day is like nothing for us, architecture students. as we have submissions and projects to be submitted on or before a deadline, v r used to stay awake. well i have been awake for five continuous days in my second year for a project submission. i have done like this for not once but thrice. we worked our as*es off on that project. it was like continuos work work and nothing else. and the result, we passed the year with flying colors. mission accomplished and then i slept for 12 straight hours after that :P
