    ...actually I think the longest I have managed

    to stay up was about 2 hours. I was knackered afterwards, but it was well worthwhile..!

    I used to regularly ( PRE-medication ) stay up

    for 72 hours at a shot ( then sleep 8 then be up another 72 ( till my body just kicked out ), I am so GRATEFUL for my medication that has me on a regular schedule, that has me in bed by 10:00 or shortly after )

    Study Time!

    I am a study freak, and stay up hours just doing what I do. My parents remind me constantly that they have their job while I have mine. My job is school, and I take full pride in that. I have stayed up for a consecutive three days. It was the week before midterms and I was...
