Cracked Ass

sleep cycle creep

Recommended Posts

It's happening again. I'm not sleeping any extra hours a night - my average is still around 10 - but I keep staying up later because I'm not tired yet, then sleeping later into the day. I'm in a roughly 4AM-2PM sleep cycle now, and by the time I have breakfast and get caffeinated and cleaned up it's basically too late to look for a job or take care of other "business-hours" business. And it's much easier for me to stay up extra late than it is to get up early - bed is just way too comfortable, especially with fall in the air. Anyone else enjoying this problem?

Wish me luck, I'm gonna try to roll it back an hour...30 minutes now, 30 minutes tomorrow morning...or afternoon I guess.

Goodnight.

Yup. As soon as I get any free time for an extended period of time, the exact same thing happens to me. I currently wake at 3-4 pm and am awake until maybe 6 am, if I'm tired maybe 5. This definitely prevents one from having a productive day.

What I like about it though is the amount of time I have for induvidual pursuits that don't get done when there are other people around, like drawing. Another thing thats good about it is just how still (comparitively) things are at night. You get a different perspective on your neighbourhood when you wander around at night.

Heh, goodnight. I think I'm worse. Alot of time I stay up until the sun is coming up, and then I sleep till about 4PM. So roughly, I go to bed around 6-7AM.

I stay up until between 4am - 7am and sleep until anywhere between 10:30am - 4pm... It's weird. Everytime I wake up early by accident I pretend like that means it's going to be easier to fall asleep earlier in the evening, and I'm going to fall back into a normal sleeping pattern. Yeah right. I don't even start to feel tired until Conan has already been on twice. lol ...It's definitly hard to get motivated to find a job when sometimes the sky is already getting dim by the time I roll out of bed...

I dont know why, but I must stay awake at night. I usually fall asleep around 6:00 am and wake up around 2:00 pm... I'm thinking about working nights.

Yeah, same here, I see the same conan episodes three times, the normal conan at 1:30, the other late late one the next day, and the daytime one a day later around 3 pm I think.

i do custom suspensions, bodywork and fabrication

the hours would suck but im drunk half the time and not doing any real work

so that means that we stay later to finish up shit that beer got in the way of

were just a bunch of drunk people with welders and plasma cutters

covered in grease 100% of the time

 

i love my job

i have always had a hard time falling asleep

but since i've been riding my bike a whole lot more, its been much easier.

 

i love to stay up late. (3 or 4 am)

and i hate to get up early (before 9am)

 

i have a job now where i can pretty much show up when i want, at first around 9:30, lately it's been more like 10:30 or 11

my boss is damn cool though, he don't give a fuck as long as the genes get sequenced.

 

my last job we could arrive between 8 and 9:30 and i would always get there at like 9:40...aaaahahaha i hate that shit..i am never on time in the morning

 

eventually i'll be jobless again, when i become a rich artist and make my own hours (yeah right)

 

and i'll be living the 10 hours of sleep a day life again..

but for now, fuck it...

sleep is for babies..:D
