"I'll sleep when I'm dead." - Warren Zevon
in reply to Hours of sleep I get on an average weeknight
I probably slept the most when I was in college, though
for some time I would stay awake for 24 hours, then sleep
for 12, repeat. Worked great for getting things done, but
sucked for any set schedule.
I didn't continue that in the "real" world, but noted
that waking up at 10am and getting to work at 11 worked
well and I would keep that schedule on weekends as well.
Due to pressure from management, I shifted to coming in
earlier. My work suffered, but as long as I was there by
8:30 my boss' didn't care.
Now, I wake up at 5:15 am to avoid the traffic, but wind
up leaving work at 4 pm. (My last job, I did the same wake
up, but didn't leave until 8pm.) I can't get to sleep until
at least 11. On weekends, I tend to sleep lots.
Since I've had the last couple weeks off, I've screwed
my schedule horribly. Up at 1pm central time, walk down to
Cafe Du Monde', have the required snack, wander the french
quarter, take a nap, walk around some more, meet people at
midnight at Cafe Du Monde', wander, sleep, repeat.
