30 hours and counting…

LUMS used to have this really weird way of scheduling mid-terms. (Explanation to everyone not familiar with LUMS – my university: We have 10 week quarters, and every quarter has mid-terms. So roughly we have exams every 5 weeks.) What they used to do was schedule mid-terms very randomly between the 4rth and 7th week. So there was a good three weeks of, “I can’t do this, I have mid-terms going one.” Anyway, someone in the administration must have had a light bulb go on in their mind, as from this year, all mid terms happen in the same week – to be specific, the first class of the 5th week (or is it 6th?). Basically, it means that there’s these four days when 95% of mid-terms are held, and unlike last year, where we had a break from all the mid-terms and actually managed to get some sleep during the three weeks, we now have 4 days where no one (except the really nerdy people) sleeps.

I’ve been awake 30 hours – which is nothing for LUMS standards. I had an exam this morning, so I was awake last night studying. And I have three (yes – one, two, three!!) exams tomorrow. Which basically means I can’t sleep till tomorrow evening. But wait – we have an LC social tomorrow – and there’s no way I’m missing that! Which means I won’t get to sleep till tomorrow night – midnight would be a good guess. Another 24 hours…

Now – as interesting as Augustine’s Confessions is, it really cannot stop me from thinking about the fact that I cannot sleep for another 24 hours, or stop me from ooking at my bed every ten minutes. Unfortunately for me, I’m not being tested on the colors of my bedspread tomorrow, so I definitely need to get back to Augustine.

Note: I just realized that when I finally sleep, I’ll have been awake for 54 hours. My previous record is 46 hours, at the end of which I vaguely remember getting on a bus, but have no recollection of what happened between then and when the bus stopped 5 hours later.
