Late Night

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : September 20, 2004

Last night, I thought it would be cool to stay out all night with my friends Sam and Jared. Sam works nights at Minnesota Public Radio, but last night was his night off. Or should I say “day” off? For Sam, the evening is as day. And for some reason I thought it would be a swell idea for me to subvert my regular sleep pattern. Early in the morning, Jared had to bail…I guess he had to “work” or something the next day. We tried to coax him into staying out all night with us…to hold on until breakfast, but he just didn’t have the grit and determination required ;)
I was out until 8:30am. I just woke up (it is now 1:30pm). I feel like a used up piece of gum–tough, flavorless, and pasty.

However, it was cool to walk around all night chatting. We need to take advantage of the times when conversation is rich and the company is encouraging. Sometimes we need to re-arrange life in order to enjoy those things that make life important. That’s what I did last night. So while my body feels like shite, my soul is refreshed.

    You were going to bed just as I was arriving late to class. Interesting…
