my sleep patterns are all over the place
preferably i would sleep for like 15 minutes. it's boring. snuggling into bed and drifting off in the warmth of blankets and softness of pillows is lovely, but seriously, i have about 1210423 other things i could be doing at night that are more useful and fun.
usually i get around 6 hours of sleep... go to bed around 3 and wake up around 9. i prefer going to bed around 2 and waking up around 8, though. i also like sunrises at the beach, so there i usually go to bed around 12:30 and wake up around 6. and i sleep like a rock. once a huge tree fell about 10 feet away from me and i didn't even wake up. but then sometimes i pull an all-nighter (my record is 2 all-nighters in a row, about 36 hours of not sleeping), or sometimes i sleep for like 10 hours. kind of depends on my schedule. i really hate if i wake up right as the sun goes down, though. i have a high threshold for sunlight i have to meet or i get depressed.
anyway i'm really a morning person work-wise. i LOVE getting off at 3 or 4 because then i have the rest of that daylight time to do what i please.
