Out of Order

{source}

I beat an all-time record for myself last night.

I pulled my very first all-nighter.

No lie.

I never, ever even pulled an all-nighter in college. Could never do it. I get way too tired and pass out.

However, last night, at age 26, I stayed up all night long. Unintentionally of course.

As most of you know, I have terrible sleeping habits...especially when I'm stressed. And I have SO much going on right now. Plus, I had a large coffee at 3:00 in the afternoon (my fault) and overindulged in way too many sweets at the super bowl party.

So, not only did I feel like a puffer fish who couldn't breath, but I was wide awake and energized all night. And to make matters worse, I looked at the clock every hour (I know this is exactly what you're NOT supposed to do). But I did anyway. First, it was 1:00 a.m., then 2:00 a.m., then 4:30 a.m.

So I decided to make it until 5:30 a.m., go to the gym, and keep myself busy at work.

That's exactly what I did. I was too busy to realize how tired I was.

And now, it is 6:18 p.m., and I hope to be in bed within 45 minutes.

I am officially out of order and hitting the sheets.

Good night all!

Oh I hate having those nights where you just stare at the clock every hour on the hour. Hope you got some rest!
