I've got about 32 hours without sleep. It was a bus trip with family, and I had the brilliant idea of us leaving at 11PM.

So we're all up that day, and naturally nobody sleeps on the bus. We show up in Vancouver at 4:30am and now we have to kill time (with our backpacks) until we can check into our hotels at 3. It was a "fun" trip to the aquarium!

To top it off, when we finally into the room so we can crash for a couple hours, somebody pulls the fire alarm.

The longest I've been awake is like 25 or 26 hours just trying to fix my sleep schedule and I was basically a narcoleptic by that point. 30+ hours sounds absolutely ridiculous and impossible and terrible and like it'd prolly kill me.

Well, as long as you're not doing anything in the morning it can't be too bad.

So it was 3:30, past the 43 hour mark, and I was just not getting the presentation done. I started feeling horrible because I just couldn't figure out what methods to use and thought I'm going to spend hours over it. I was also feeling like really shit, but not sleepy. I also started feeling like I'm having a bit of a difficulty breathing. I could've pressed on, but I spoke with a friend and got persuaded to drop it. Especially since I kept being reminded how people die after not sleeping for two nights... I guess I got sorta scared because I knew I had to be awake until the evening the next day as well.

So I set an alarm for 9:40, or in six hours, and slept. I was disappointed with myself but figured I'd tell the teacher I thoroughly apologize and would do it next week.
I woke up at some point and checked my phone, it was 1 minute before the alarm would ring. I got up and immediately started feeling bad that I didn't at least give myself an hour in the morning, since I felt like I could get the presentation done in this state. I actually did sit down and do 30 minutes' worth of work, before leaving for the class. I arrived late and the teacher was luckily presenting something on his own. So I sat down, ignored him and continued working. At some point the other person presenting today went. I did some of the most fundamental things left and was done pretty much right on time for me to start presenting. It was sketchy with slight blunders but I actually said a lot of details aloud that were missing from the presentation because I'm familiar with the topic. I answered all the questions and it went basically perfect.

So this is the story of how I never fucking learn my lesson because things always work out somehow. I wish I got burned sometimes tbh.

Well, I'm glad that things worked out without you feeling more than a bit shitty. I'm also glad you did get some sleep in the end. It sounds like. You pretty much had to.

I dunno, difficulty breathing sounds a little like being burned, mate.
