End of term

So term finished Friday. No idea how I did yet, but I'm worried about some courses. Most of our terms are designed for robots not people, but this term they really took the gloves off. The 3D Modelling teacher was asking why half the class was helping this one girl print out her stuff to make the late deadline, and they just LOOKED at him. Because it could happen to us. One day is all it takes to send you back a year, if it's the wrong day, and you don't have the energy left to work twice as hard. Which after weeks of half-sleep just to keep up, you probably won't. Hopefully I won't fail design this term. We'll see -- it'll probably be a near thing, and all because it's just too much work for a short period, not because I can't do the work AFTER enough rest. You know there's a point of mingled exhaustion and sleep deprivation where food and caffeine can't keep you working productively, but only keep you from faceplanting into the keyboard? Most of us were at that for days to over a week before everything was in.

For the past couple days, just being awake has been exhausting. We went for sushi and had to go home to have a nap. Have to go home and nap after 2-3 hours awake at all, even for reading novels. I can sleep through daylight and dishwashers and snowblowers. When I need to turn in paperwork and fetch RAM sticks and fix computers and buy clothes. Maybe tomorrow I could stay awake for 6 hours running?

But meanwhile, naptime after a little bit of book. The screen's getting blurry.
