Rather than putting the finishing touches on her last essay of the semester, Daniella Sawkins elected to head out with friends and enjoy the last Sunday evening of term at the local.

Enjoying a miscooked $10 rump with the sauce she didn’t ask for, one sem-sav-sunrise quickly turned into seven and before she knew it, the 20-year-old architecture student was back in her dorm room, trying to stop the world from spinning.

Now facing a 9 am deadline tomorrow and a hangover that only people over 30 should feel, Ms Sawkins revealed to The Advocate this morning that it wasn’t the voice of reason in her head last night – it was the devil.

“It’s just 4 000 words on how Walter Burley-Griffin was largely under-appreciated during his time in Australia, but since his death, there has been a growing recognition of his work,” she said.

“It shouldn’t be that hard. I just wish I didn’t go out last night. But honestly, this is one of the worst hangovers I’ve ever had in my short life. I feel like I’m having an aneurysm. I thought I was giving myself a break, but I guess this is how I ended up in this mess in the first place! [laughs] I can see myself in summer school already,”

“O well. Here I go.”

More to come.
