    I usually sleep for 6 hours at a time, but my cycle is constantly shifting. It's horrible really.. I'm not in sync with... umm.. business/school/whatever hours. Whenever an appointment comes up, it's a chore to self-kick my ass and be ready for it.

    I'm definitely a night owl. I also often have trouble getting sleep so I like to sleep late.

    I'm not a morning person either - my brain doesn't function properly for the first hour or 2 after I've woken up. Asking me questions, telling me things I'm supposed to remember or generally trying to have a conversation with me at such times will result in fragmented, nonsensical responses.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Oh, man. Me, too. I am in a total fog for the first hour or so. It's frustrating sometimes because I like to sleep until the last possible minute, but when I'm working a job with normal people hours, I have to get up a bit earlier so my brain will start working like it's supposed to. I prefer to teach night classes, when I'm at my prime. It also allows me to keep the schedule I like best: staying up until 3 or 4, sleeping until noon or later.

    never. i have no internal clock. but i do smoke a lot of weed which makes me fall asleep earlier. all through high school i'd stay up til 3 or 4 in the morning, no matter what i did to try and fix it and get on a normal schedule, i'd always go back to being up all night.

    I personally want to do one of the circadian rhythm tests with no outside sense of time and see what happens. I'm curious what pattern I would fall into.

    My rhythm is perfect for a world of 26-hour days. Now I been sleeping almost on the right time for a week or so. I think it's learned behavior for me. Once the only introvert moments for me were in the middle of the night...

    An interesting thing about this shifting rhythm is that I seem to cope better sleep deprived than most people. Has anyone else noticed this?

    No. I got a circadian rhythm disorder. And I can't shut off my brain when it's all quiet so I use white noise and an audio book to stop my mind from going in one million directions at once.

    My sleep pattern is totally normal.

    Wait, it's normal to go to bed at 2am right?

    When I was younger, I was very particular about how I had to be sleeping, what could be touching me, etc... otherwise I couldn't fall asleep.

    Nowadays the biggest thing I do it use a white noise machine or a fan -- if the house is silent, any little sound immediately grabs my attention. I also prefer it to be pitch black, but I can now handle a bit of light without much problem.

    The typical issue with insomnia for me is not being able to make my mind shut up.

    I also have trouble going to bed early.

    Even with me dragging on my 4:30am wake-up time with my current job, I often don't go to bed until 12-1am. Not good. It's not like I don't want to go to bed, I just tend to not be tired at that point of night. When I feel like crashing, it's usually around mid-afternoon or 6pm.

    I dunno. Sounds kind of early.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    3-4 hours twice a day.
