@Nine Inch Heels it really is just a severe lack of time, yeah. Having to miss several weeks' worth of classes around March due to illness meant I had a ton of catching up to do, and I basically did all that catching up over the last couple weeks. I'm a guy who loves his sleep, so the idea of pulling all-nighters usually makes me want to curl up into a ball and cry. When you're staring at a pile of work to do under a screaming "You will literally fail this class if you don't do this tonight" klaxon siren though, fatigue and tiredness pretty much go out of the window to be replaced with that deadly mix of panic and delusional pragmatism.
I heard someone say that when you are in school, you may pick any two of the three: sleep, good grades, social life.
Let's not "derail" this too much. I just think that all nighters aren't a good idea unless they're necessary. Usually, they make you tired the next day, meaning when in school/university, you're already less good at processing information than you'd normally be. That in and off itself seems like a faustian bargain to me, not to mention that being tired usually lasts the rest of the day as well, which then impedes studying at home for that matter. That's why I have a hard time understanding how people are able to put all-nighters to good use to begin with.
If you study tired, you should take the test tired! Simple psychology ;p
In all seriousness I'm gald essel took a sec to ask how you're doing and I'm glad to hear that you're well. Good luck on your final exam!
