Spring 2012 RAT: Hour Fourteen

What? Only ten more hours to go? I'm starting to get a little sleepy, so I'm drinking another Diet Mt. Dew, but I might have to add some sugar into the mix in order to get that rush to keep me going. Here's the latest update:

What I've eaten/drunk: cinnamon raisin toast and a Diet Mt.

Dew

Okay. Time to get up and do some jumping jacks, then eat some candy to get that sugar rush. I can definitely make it another two hours. Longer? Hope so. I'd love to make it 20 hours this time. I think 17 is the longest I've ever done...

Looks like you're getting a lot of great reading time in! Here's hoping that sugar rush helps get you to your 20 hour goal.

Go, fight, read! =D

I swear, I don't know how anyone ever makes it the full 24 hours! 20 hours is the longest I've ever gone. This time I tried to work in a couple of naps but I don't know that it's going to help come 3 a.m. Good luck getting to 20 hours!

You are doing great! 24 hours is tough (I did it once and really felt it the next day.) Keep going as long as you can but don't make yourself miserable. Enjoy!
