Not going to pull an all nighter but I'm working on this History paper right now, hopefully I can finish it within the next hour or so and nap for a bit before my last final tomorrow morning.

Dec 15, 2011

When I pull an all-nighter I.............

1.) Try to take 20 minutes for a caffeine nap around 4am. My poison of choice is typically a 5hr Energy, since it has the no sugar and doesn't have an imposing taste. If I'm feeling a little more adventurous I'll just say fuck it and down a Redline before the nap. Save Red Bull for the club, using it for the hope of some productivity gain is a rookie move.

2.) Do your best to look unaffected by the all-nighter the next morning (this is obviously more important at work than at school). For me, this involved finding a highly effective bottle of eye-drops that I could use to remove the redness in my eyes. I also (very sadly) had office toiletries that served as a disaster kit for when I couldn't go home.

I once threw a party at my place, and people did not leave until like 3. I did get about 3 hrs of sleep or so and then made it to work the next day and had the second best day of the year on my desk. Wow, that felt good. But you know what, losing money when you are hungover feels a lot worse than making money when you are hung over (in absolute terms).

In emotional terms, I think losing money feels a lot worse than the excitement gained from making money for an equal dollar value, regardless of being sober or drunk.

When I pull an all nighter I hate myself. I think I'm in the process right now.

Best things?
1) Stay hydrated
2) Eat healthy (or at least don't be knocking down Big Macs, that shit don't help)
3) Drink coffee
4) Find someone with an adderal prescription

I would have to agree with the keep hydrated, that's a big one for me to prevent headaches. I also try to rock some adderall and advil. Lastly, I like to keep reminding myself that I'm a boss and anything I spend all night on will be awesome.

... take adderall and crush, try to sleep for an hour or two between 7 and 9

Dec 15, 2011

Take red-bull, adderall, etc. Listen to motivating music. And then...

I mindlessly procrastinate all night and get nothing done.

As usual, I wasted most of the night. :/

Dec 15, 2011

Just finished mine. Got through/skimmed 200 pages of material, understood about half of it and now I'm off to dominate this thing...

My advice is to turn off everything and just "plug-in". Some people can study with the TV on, headphones blaring, and the Internet going all at once, but even just one of those is a huge distraction for me. I also take 15 min. naps so I don't go insane.

When I pull an all-nighter:

I normally get some addy's and pop them like an animal( probably like 2 max), listen to some trap musik(jeezy is ideal) and maybe some im the greatest from r kelly on repeat..

Take a 10 min nap every so often..

And try not to think about how youre cramming for an exam that will probably be harder than an erect cack considering you have 3 hours to finish 2 problems

Dec 15, 2011

How did it go guys? I managed 3 hours of sleep and did pretty well on the exam considering how little I managed to cover.

Dec 15, 2011

does anyone pull an all nighter in B school other than for the specific all nighter 'do consulting' things?

Dec 15, 2011

I would take occasional breaks and talk to some of my friends on the west coast or in Europe. I would have a bunch of Starbuck's double shots. I would grab an early breakfast at 5 AM or so, then nap for 2 hours, wake up and wash the face before people started showing back up.

Dec 15, 2011

When I pull an all nighter I

1) Will always have my gf pull an all nighter with me so when I start to fall asleep she will have the chance to slap me.
2) Will have two medium sized black coffee and 1 small french vanilla to keep me up.
3) Then I just cram my nights away.
4) I DO NOT SLEEP BEFORE MY EXAMS EVER. I dont know why but I feel like I will forget everything I prepare for by sleeping/ I wont be able to get up.

I want a lady on the street, but a freak in the bed,

Shit load of cigarettes, coffe, and redbull.

Dec 15, 2011

When I pull and all-nighter, I...masturbate incesssantly in the office restroom and snort blow off the toilet bowl seat. True story.

No, not true at all, actually.

I have kind of trained my body to function on 4-6 hrs of sleep. I rarely pull an all-nighter, but when I do I just crank through and try to forget how much it sucked when I roll into the next day. It helps that I like what I do.

In college, I would just have a lot of sex with my GF at the time. Better than caffiene and we both enjoyed it.

When I pull and all-nighter I...

Make myself what I refer to lovingly as The DRANK. This is not to be confused with Sizzurp or Purple Drank that Lil Wayne loves. The DRANK is simply a 5 Hr Energy dropped into a Red Bull. I chase The DRANK with some Avicii or Tiesto and then proceed to attack the tasks before me and watch them pitifully fall beneath my B12 and Guarine infused retard strength. Note that this is terrible for you and is not at all advisable, but when you gotta model, you gotta model.

Wow. What's that fish-like stench in this thread? Smells like....pussy. A lot of pussies.

Really amazed by the level of Addy use in people who claim to/want to/are trying to be Alphas.

Just like steroid or HGH users, you're cheating, and that means you're just not good enough on your own. You know you suck too hard to get it all done, so you take the easy cop-out. You know there are real men out there with the intelligence and work ethic to pump shit out without popping pills, but you can't handle it.
Face it: you're weak.

A real Alpha powers through with some healthy food, water, and a couple cups of coffee or a Red Bull (the academic's version of Gatorade).

Period.

Not sure about the rest of you still in school, but mine has officially listed unprescribed Addy use not only as a violation of drug policy, but also as a serious academic honor violation (i.e. cheating) that results in immediate review by the Judiciary, highly probable suspension, and possible expulsion.

So you are strongly opposed to using a drug (amphetamine salts) for studying purposes but fully support using a drug (caffeine) for studying purposes. Makes sense....

Precisely why I included the Gatorade analogy (you think Mark and Sammy went on record as saying "C'monnnnn! We already use Gatorade to improve our stamina! How are anabolics any different?!" Ha.) The fact that you're in such deep denial that the thought even enters your head of comparing low-level caffeine for the sole purpose of staying awake to heavy prescription amphetamine use for the purpose of improving concentration is frankly disgusting. You people are garbage.

Your transcript should come with an asterisk, just like Barry Bonds' record*

*these grades were aided by illegal amphetamine use in the wake of procrastination. They very likely would've been lower without it.

Talk to me when you're actually on the job and your livelihood and responsibilities hinge on your ability to get your work done. Add to that the fact that you're working with a client whose senior management team is a bunch of pencil-dicked assholes who love nothing more than to dump work on their adviser regardless of whether they truly need the work done or not. You work for them for 3 weeks straight typically till 3 or 4 in the morning and now it's really starting to get down to the wire and they want to submit a bid the week after Christmas which means that you are likely not going to get a chance to get home and see Mom and Dad and if you do you're flying there and back in 2-3 days tops and one of those flights is a red eye. When you get back there's no " Hey, we really appreciate the sacrifices you guys are making here, we realize we're being completely unreasonable and fucking up your family life and you haven't had a single day of vacation time all year and were looking forward to spending Christmas with your family." It's just "Hey you're going to need to step it up and get this done, if that means you live here, then you live here... make it work." You let me know that you aren't going to start considering popping an Addy or throwing in Horseshoe lippers to stay awake. At the very least you'll be crushing Starbucks or Redbulls... Get off your self righteous horse.

I do have more sympathy for bankers working 110 hrs/wk than for undergrad students studying for finals and writing term papers, but it's still cheap. Would the thought cross my mind? Sure. Plenty of things do. Would I ever do it? Not unless the choice was literally between getting fired and popping Addy, which it might be for a person or two occasionally.

Yes, I am also concerned about the popularity of adderall. It seemed like almost everyone I knew in college was doing it. I did it once and it gave me a really bad stomach ache, havent done it since and I never felt like I needed it anyway.

FYI, judging other people on their level of "alpha' makes you not "alpha" by default.

Fine, swap out Alpha and Beta for whatever framework you like to assess the value of people. If I use Addy and you don't, in terms of academic integrity, I am an objectively superior human being. End of story.

Dec 15, 2011

Hydrate. Chew lots of gum. Moderate caffeine intake - tea late at night and coffee as it gets closer to morning. STAY OFF THE INTERNET - can be a huge time sink, particularly when you are less focused than usual.

Comfortable clothes are a must. This is easier when you have a private office, but in college it should be no problem. Not sure what people do in cubes.

Getting some sleep is better than getting no sleep at all. I can't cat nap, but an hour of sleep in the early morning can do wonders.

That's because staying up for 24 hours is hard. Especially when you're doing mind-numbing shit like modeling or studying. And generally an all-nighter will involve being up all day the next day too.

JMO, but it doesn't surprise me at all.

Slept 13 hours from 9 AM last Friday - noon Tuesday. When I got into bed at noon I felt drunk. Slept from noon - 10 PM, 2 AM - 10 AM Wednesday, and then 9:30 PM - 7:30 AM Thursday. Feel a lot better now.

Really? I disagee. I have stayed up for longer than 24 hrs without the help of stimulants, for work, studying and fraternity hell weeks (I was the guy doing the hazing, so I had to stay up with the pledges). Sitting at a desk working/studying or yelling at pledges doesnt require much effort or focus if you really think about it.

Different story if youre a Navy SEAL recruit in the middle of BUDS Hell Week, that's a challenge. Then again, those guys arent allowed to take stimulants either. Theyre not even allowed to take vitamins.

Dec 16, 2011

I recently pulled a double all-nighter with out adderall; I drank coffee and had some organic snacks from Whole Foods. You don't need adderall, its the will power. I don't usually feel overly tired until I've accomplished my goal and once I've done what I came to do I feel the fatigue. Will power, man.

plan to get 3 hours of sleep. It's a motivating goal and most of the time, I manage to hit it and don't actually have to pull an all-nighter.

Studying all night for an exam is an awful idea. You will lose more points due due to little mistakes or being a bit slower than usual than you gain due to crammed material, assuming you at least have been going to and staying awake in class.

On addy: you do what you have to do, but it doesn't make it right. There are lots of good reasons to not wan't adderall floating around our colleges and workplaces for the use of those without at least some level of clinical attention disorders.

Dec 15, 2011

Just to follow up on monkeyc, for those of you who use adderall: it's extremely addictive. I talk about using it a lot, but honestly it kind of scares me. I maybe use it 3-4 times/month, and am trying to get off of it. Last thing you want to do is get addicted to pills before you've even graduated college.

If you find yourself needing it, first talk to a doc and see if you actually qualify for a prescription. If you don't, try to limit yourself to doing it once a week and make sure you get everything you need to done.

Lastly, there are drugs everywhere. At school, on Wall Street, at the club, etc. Don't use drugs if you can't be responsible for them. I'm all in favor of smoking pot once in a while, or trying some of the other drugs, but recognizing that they can supremely fuck up your life and being careful with them is important.

Pulling all-nighters in college was easy. Only did it a couple of times, but all I needed was a thermos of coffee and calculators that worked.

Pulling week-long patrols in the military was harder.

Quick tip to all you pulling more than one all-nighter a semester; Study more during the semester and you don't need to pull one.

Dec 19, 2011

All-nighters at work inevitably precede very busy days in the office. It makes sense right? Why would you stay unless there was some super important meeting / deadline you were prepping for? The biggest bummer of them all is that you are the most tired during these super important days. And during the 'big meeting' days, your 'normal' work doesn't get done, resulting in compounding amounts of work and even longer hours.

This is why it is super important to try to get some rest, basically whenever it is available I will leave the office for 2 hours and go home to lie in my own bed, shower, change, and shave. Super helpful and makes you feel like at least there's some level of control. We also have free coffee / espressos at work; and I will over-order from Seamless and take advantage of the "breakfast and lunch" policies basically empowering me to order Seamless if I'm working super crazed hours.

Working an all nighter at the office means you arrive at 8am Tuesday and won't leave sometimes until two calendar days later, like 2am Thursday. It's not like you can go home "between classes" or something but the point is to sneak away at least once. Got to get the F out of the office or you will end up going mad. And when you finally get a day of relative peace, I will arrive 1 or 2 hours late and nobody says shit because my hours are worse than almost everyone nowadays (crazy busy sector I'm working in).

tl;dr: I basically drink coffee and eat lots of hot chow, then go home for 2 hours even if it's from 2pm to 4pm (and turn off the blackberry, everybody be damned!). And when it finally lets up, sleep in late and arrive at work at a leisurely pace to try to regain sanity.

I'm not going to hate on anybody for using aderall or say it's unfair etc etc, but I have never had to use it, and I'm kind of proud of the fact I've gotten everything done without having to call in the big guns. Nobody can deny aderall is a huge advantage over anything else no matter how many energy drinks you slug. It helps you concentrate as well as stay awake. That being said if my job depended on it there's a good chance I'd do it.

Currently procrastinating towards the beginning of an all-nighter, so if this comment is completely pointless apologies.

I took Adderall for most of this semester after I was diagnosed with ADHD. Now I have insane palpitations, shortness of breath after climbing a short flight of stairs, etc. and I'm barely 20, and seemingly at least in good health.
If I'm not wrong, Canada had even banned Adderall for a length of time in the mid-2000s for its role in dramatically increasing the risk of heart attacks. Anyways, now I'm off it for good. Coffee and Red Bull are good enough for me.

Do the following:

  1. Ignore everything you were ever taught about music and plug in to some psytrance and hardstyle
  2. Do a Tai-Chi sequence every 90 minutes; it's freaky but once you get the hang of it it's better than napping
  3. Drink coconut water or gatorade
  4. Chew cloves and nutmeg
  5. Ignore monkeys flinging poo at you for practicing the dark art of hippieism
  6. Model like a zen warrior priest

1 works like a charm and I use slight variants of 3 and 5. Gatorade/ Powerade does help but double espresso shots are just revitalizing, especially if you take a caffeine nap. I also keep a pack of doublemint chewing gum instead of cloves. Some insanely heavy metal (Djent, Modern Death, Deathcore etc) also does the trick.
