Re: How to write curriculum vitae and cover letter

I've got to agree with @ICAL_pete, as a CV takes time to develop. It is worth it and you should have one ready, however it would be best for you to write it and then have someone edit it for you. Good luck with your new job!

Re: since I didn't stay up

It does make sense if you drop "didn't" and use the past tense for "stay", however try using a more active voice when writing.

"I haven't stayed awake this late in months [days or years, whatever time period you're trying to convey]." or "I'm usually in bed by now."
