Not necessarily. It reduces quality and hinders proof-reading ability. I wouldn't advise it, but since you're in the situation, it's doable. You'll have to buckle down, though. No messing around, no nothing. Just work work work work work. The more you can stay focused, the better it'll be; bring food and water and such to your work station so that you don't have to break away that much. Focus focus focus. Also, don't spill food on your computer. I did that when I was doing my paper and lost an hour cleaning yogurt out of my keys. gonk
If you're planning on getting the best ending, you'll very likely want to either play multiplayer or get Datapad for any portable iOS product. Datapad's free if you've got a pod, phone, or pad, but multiplayer requires an XBOXLive Gold account. Game comes with a free two day subscription, so you can get your score up if you're diligent, but since you have work and a SO, that could be difficult.
It gets better. All gay Muslims living in America know this in their heart. biggrin
