Since I'm philosophically opposed to staying up all night for the purpose of writing a paper, I didn't finish my proposal for class today. Instead, I followed the advice of yesterday's comments and mailed the professor requesting an extension at reduced credit. She agreed and now I have additional time to finish.
I had stayed up late drinking tea while working on the paper, so physiology vetoed philosophy and I didn't sleep very much anyway. The only bonus was that waking before sunrise was not a challenge.
In other news: it was really cold and foggy this morning.
