Everything You'll Need To Pull An All-Nighter

Maybe it's the 12-page research paper you saved for the last minute. Maybe it's the midterm counting for 50 percent of your grade that you neglected to care about. Either way, at some point during your college career (maybe more than a few times) you will certainly have to pull an all-nighter to get your duties done. Here is a list of all the things you'll need to get you through this unfortunate night:

1. Post-its, highlighters, index cards and tape.

You won't use any of this, but t least people will think you're being super efficient and fancy.

2. Not, not, NOT sweatpants.

Being too comfy will only make you want to curl up in bed and call it a night even sooner.

3. A steady 10-minute-increment alarm clock.

This way your power naps don't seduce you too deep into slumber.

4. Body-rotting liquid energy.

It may not be the best for your body, but it may be the life raft for your GPA.

5. A little bit of something to gnash on.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F16%2F6359636686340492421048685388_up.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=809&h=4d8c12d64f32968b7d88c4d1ba00d59dd6bf312718a88f1e5677214901efb979&size=980x&c=939155670 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F16%252F6359636686340492421048685388_up.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D809%26h%3D4d8c12d64f32968b7d88c4d1ba00d59dd6bf312718a88f1e5677214901efb979%26size%3D980x%26c%3D939155670%22%7D" expand=1]

Nothing gets you through a night like some inspirational mood music.

7. A sugary boost for your second wind.

When the energy juice fails, always have a backup plan.

8. A photograph of your mortal enemy.

Fact: no one can sleep while enraged and ready for a fight club.

9. Instant access to social media and cat videos.

Study breaks are unavoidable and must be efficient.

10. Puff's Plus tissues.

You're going to cry. At least make sure the tissues are good to your face.

11. Three fluffy pillows, a soft blanket and your childhood stuffed penguin.

Lay down little soldier; your fight is over. You have an hour until class. Take a rest.

12. The number of that kid you said "Bless you" to 27 days ago.

He owes you one.


All-nighters are stressful, emotional and unavoidable. Even the most efficient and diligent students will have to stay up through the night to complete an assignment at some point. Maybe the next time you get assigned a super-long paper, you'll think twice before putting it off...but probably not.

These thoughts will drive you mad.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
