I kicked sleep's ass [Nov. 20th, 2004|07:50 am]
alan1498
I completed Awakefest. I stayed up for 48 hours. I got up Thursday morning at 7:45am and have not slept since. I am disappointed in the lack of commitment to this year's Awakefest, the only other people who could still complete the full 48 are Mike, Matthew, Erik, and Anne. I'm not sure any of them will make it. Fun takes precedence over commitment for most people I suppose and when it became unfun to stay up, people slept. I've heard a multitude of excuses but I don't attach a lot of value to excuses. I knew coming in there would be hardships. Thursdays are my nap days. My first class is at 8:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I get quite tired even through the course of the day normally. Thursday night was IHOP and quality Scott time among other things. I was there when the cafe opened in the morning for breakfast and went to my Econ class on Friday. I went to the Motion City Soundtrack concert Friday night and even moshed a little despite my aching legs. I just think I put a higher value on accomplishing the task in front of me than some others(despite how meaningless said task may be). It was truly a great weekend and I struggled through it. I'm glad I did.

Also, Holiday Spice Pepsi is bitchin'.

Umm, I'm not sure why that's so small, sorry.

I graciously accept the award, despite it's size and the improper grammar.

AHHHH! I am the last person in the world to make such a mistake. I hang my head in shame. :(
