    Done It Many Times

    I used to work 2 jobs and so I had a pretty chaotic schedule- lots of overtime, lots of times where I would be scheduled a double shift at one job, then have to turn right around after that and do a shift at the second job. It actually didn't affect me until about a year later...

    Semi-regularly ..

    .. I tend to overbook my life. I'll be getting home thinking, "Sleep!" Only to be reminded I'm supposed to be somewhere else. I dont think I've gone a week this year without staying up at least a whole day. I'm supposed to go to work in two hours. I wont get any sleep...

    Nightmares

    Over the summer I started to get really sick feeling. I'd go to sleep and have this reoccuring nightmare. I'd never remember it once I woke up but I'd stay up about 3-5 days straight trying to avoid it. I hated not sleeping but I knew if I slept the same fate would be waiting for...

    Stretching My Endurance

    When I have too much to do and not enough time, sleep is the easiest part of my day to remove to create more available time. I don't usually plan to do this in advance, it's just how it works out. Sometimes it's due to poor planning, though mostly it's due to unexpected...

    "i Can Stay Awake More Than 24 Hrs Straight"

    Sometimes I find it so easy to stay awake more than 24 Hrs straight. I've done it countless times, but after it, I know I'll get a really good sleep. I'll just sleep 'til I wake. Sometimes I just do it over again and again. That's the advantage of working for oneself as I do not...

    In Bed

    Sometimes i have to at work but it's not a lot of fun towards the end and i end up thinking of being horizontal in a warm bed with a thick duvet and lots of pillows.

    Oh Yes...

    I can stay up for more than 24 hours straight. I love pulling an all nighter. I use to do it a LOT when I first Joined Ep. I would go to school in the morning, come home, do homework, cook dinner, spend some time with family, and than when everyone would go to bed, I would go on...

    As Of This Writing...

    ...it is yet another 24+ hour day.   The days I stay up longer than the full rotation of the earth actually outnumber the days I get 'normal' sleep cycles.   This has gone on for many years, as far back as my childhood, so any reasons for it, logical or...

    Quite Easily

    I stay awake all weekend regularly. Being a big eater must help a lot, as does keeping myself occupied with a good game and/or movie(s) and a pile of food. My personal record is over 60 hours, but I was losing lucidity.

    Of staying awake.  My hallucinations after 48 hours were bad though.  This is not something I recommend anybody do!
