i thought maybe "urniate" was some kind of fetish that i wasn't familiar with...but after a quick google search it simply appears that many people have to piss so badly that they fail to spell correctly
I remember once towards the beginning of my education I didnt sleep for 3 days straight. I was tripping badly, I saw things in the trees, I could literally see the wind move all around me. I didnt like it, and now try to sleep at least 4-5 hours a night no matter what.
yeah but I was in grad school just last year.
I did my share of all nighters until I figured out they are a huge waste of time. I get more done when I sleep, thats all im saying that is my HUMBLE opinion and I am sharing it in this forum.
Plus you are putting your health on the line when you dont sleep.
It is not a merit badge to go sleepless, its crazy and MANY times not really worth it.
Now Ill shut my just-now-reapplying-to-grad-school trap.
and the worst part is seeing all the fresh, moisturized, young faces of normal non-arch students as they walk to their AM classes.
...as you're leaving studio to hunt down some sort of edible foodstuff, which you won't be able to taste and which you will listlessly chew while sort of staring at an indeterminate fixed point about 6' in front of your face (hopefully not somewhere near some chick's boobs, that's happened to me before, AWKWARD). Then you will pass more hordes of those fresh, happy, well-rested young English and Business majors when you turn right around to go to your "normal" classes without any homework in hand and wearing the same scrungy clothes you've worn for the previous 48 hours, that have bits of foamcore and chip board dust all over them, and graphite smudges from where your hands have touched yourself.
it's easy to stay up late if you get into it and your in "the zone." But i find that when I stay up late my sleep schedule gets all thrown off and the only time It's productive to stay up is at midterm/finals.
i hated all-nighters even though i used to habitually pull them...even so the one thing i do miss is that moment of bliss when you are finally finished with everything, ride the bus home, lay down...and just give in.
I find all nighters 100% unproductive. I pulled one the other week (I try to avoid them). It was so stupid. I looked at the clock and it took me 6 hours to do something that I had done in 3 hours while awake.
There is a guy in my studio that NEVER goes home. His projects SUCK because of it and he just falls asleep at his desk all the time. It's so bad. He gets so tired that he just starts modeling stuff. His process this semester was connecting points and then lofting the lines and then using the isocurves as structure. My critic was so frustrated with him because she would tell him to get some sleep because his decision making skills were failing. He didn't get ripped at review because everyone just stared at him blankly with no expression.
the urinating trick works - but after about the 2 or 3rd day your body aclimatizes - or at least mine did. My grad studio was on the 5th floor and was approximately 150 long, I'd be dressed in my trainers the whole night and approx 2:30 hrs I'd sprint down the hallway down the steps, across on the 4th floor and back up. The huffing and puffing was a good break. Didn't take long (far better than the cigarette breaks), and fired up my brain. As well it distracted your schoolmates and made them think they were imaging things :-)
the GSD has a couple sets of parallel stairs that connect the trays and prove quite useful for five-flight stair master competitions late at night. There's also the external terrace stairs in the dead of winter or the really hardcore (or tired).
We would open the windows (if it was cold out) and let the studio drop down to just around freezing. Kept us awake pretty good but the shivvering didn't do wonders if you were trying to do precise drawings.
