I've been going to sleep increasingly later and later over the past week, last night I just went to sleep at 7 in the morning and woke up at 5:30 in the afternoon. For some reason I like sleeping during the daytime and like being up at night. Anyone else fell this way?

I've always been nocturnal by nature, but for the past few years I've been in jobs where I couldn't be. I still revert on Sundays if I'm not exhausted from the rest of the week.

Yeah, I have most of my classes in the morning and right when I get home around noon I go right back to bed until diner, or should I say breakfast.

No way!

I've been staying up later and later the past week too. I told myself not to go to bed later than 4am though. It used to be like 10-11pm.

I like it so much more. I'm also more productive doing work/homework.

The difference is that I wake up around 10am, and go back to bed at 5-9pm. I get my 8 hours everyday still.

I'm changing it up a bit, so it fits my into exam schedule, but next term during school I'm going back to this schedule.

I usually go to bed at 11-12 at night and wake up at 7am.

I feel like I naturally start getting sleepy at dawn, so if I'm not careful, a few days of sleep freedom will have me going to sleep at 6-7am and waking at around 3pm.

On nonworking nights I stay up as late as I can, usually 2 to 4am, then I sleep as late as I can, usually 9am -noon). On working nights I get to bed by 8am and up between noon and 2:30pm.

I am naturally nocturnal. I'd sleep all day and stay up all night if I had my way. I'm much more creative at night, I think clearer at night.

I hate happy, peppy morning people. :devil: Someone needs to just smack those people. :grumpy:

Ha! Sleep is for the weak!

I find that my days seem longer if I don't sleep at all. And longer...and longer...and longer...I really can't explain it. It just seems to work that way.

Yeaah.. whoever's been around when I used to go sleepless for 3-5 days at a time remembers how cranky I got :bugeye:
Recently the only reason why I'd stay up is because I had a craving to listen to more and more and more.. and more.. and more.. and more.. and.. more.. and more.. and more music :approve:
I go to sleep around 2. Wake up around 8. And thats how I do :biggrin:
(Definition of around = +/- 15 minutes)

I believe that's referred to as "free running", at least it was years ago. They did studies where they put a person in a room totally shut off from outside stimulus, no clocks, no way to keep track of time. They found that without knowing the time or when it was light or dark that people tended to stay awake for longer and longer periods, with their days and nights becoming switched. People with no idea of "when" they should sleep would stay awake late at night and sleep during the day. That is a natural sleep pattern. What is currently acceptable (sleep at night wake up early) is not natural. :approve:

Morning would be better - if it came later in the day. :biggrin:

I think they went to a 28 hour day cycle. Don't know where I heard that though.

I'd still recommend getting atleast 7 hours of sleep for those who don't get it.

i sleep different hours every night basically. and i nap sometimes, and different times every day i nap. i have classes but they rarely effect how i sleep. i'll sleep through them when i want a lot of the time. i'm also a really light sleeper. but i do dream a lot. i wake up all the time during the night though. some nights i don't get to bed until well after sun up, and with it being winter now, there have been many days where i haven't really seen the sun.

Sleeping habits?

Define sleep. It's an unfamiliar concept. :)

Staying late watching infomercials is just stupid. Find something better to do with your time.

For me it really depends. When i have time I will stay up as long as i can for because i can't fall asleep knowing i could have stayed up. But normally I get around 4 or 5 hours of sleep. Yep i love the night.

They didn't have pancakes... I'm sad.

What else can you do at 5 in the morning other than post here and watch infomercials?
