Although I can go without sleep I can't do it for long, nor do I like to do it. Being a student, it's inevitable that I'm going to leave an essay or three to the last minute while all of my time is filled up with the more important things in life. Well the night before last, as in Wednesday night, myself and seven other people from my course spent the night in the 24 hour suite doing our essay for yesterday. I didn't struggle at all until I finished at around 5:30 and tried to stand up at which point my body realised that in order to move I need my legs which had been out of action, but still aware of their existence, for about 12 hours (I was distracted by Facebook numerous times throughout the night) and had forgotten how to move. So I've come to the conclusion that as long as I don't have to use my legs, I can stay awake all night. The annoying thing was that I had an active day ahead of me; lots of rehearsals and workshops which resulted in me nodding off several times on the bus home much to the amusement of the very attractive girl beside me who I was explaining why I was tired to, as I fell asleep. I'm awake now, but I feel weird. I keep thinking it's thursday evening.
I have gone without sleep before while role playing or watching a whole TV series in a night (The Wire), but I've often fallen asleep about ten o clock the next morning.
So, how long can you guys last for and what's the longest you've ever been without it?
