The 10 Emotional Stages of a Long Library Session

Library all-nighters are painful. Emotions are flying, but your word count is stagnant.

1. Optimism

You’re in the library, you’re feeling positive, this assignment will be done in no time. You got this!

2. Annoyance

Why did that overly attached couple feel the need to sit next to you and whisper sweet nothings to each other? There is a time and a place and it is not here.

3. Hunger

All this reading is hungry work. Who knew? Time to eat your body weight in biscuits.

4. Mind-Numbing Boredom

This will probably be when you take a quick Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Snapchat/Tumblr/Gossip catch up break

5. More Annoyance

How DARE someone else take out that one book crucial for your work?! Is this some kind of plot to single-handedly destroy your degree?



6. Tiredness

You would give anything to be in your bed right now.

7. More Hunger

Something about the soul destroying atmosphere of the library just makes you want to eat the world.

8. Frustration

The words you are typing no longer make sense. Your brain just isn’t cooperating anymore.

9. Helplessness

You think you’re close to the end… then you check your word count and find you are woefully under your word limit. Let the weeping commence.

10. Elation

You’re emotionally drained and feel broken, but who cares? Your work is finished! Feel free to collapse in a heap…until your next assignment is due.

Until next time, library.
