Work forced me to get normal sleeping hours. I used to stay up until 2 or 3 am and wake up around noon. But now I have to be up at 5:30 for work so I usually go to bed around 10 or 11.
I like that on my days off work I can’t sleep past 8 or 8:30. I get more done and I feel like I have a longer day off, because I am awake for more of the day than I was when I would sleep until noon.
However, I do not like going to sleep that early. I am a night person, I will always be a night person. There is just something peaceful about the night, when most everyone else is asleep and it’s sort of quiet outside.
So I have mixed feelings about my new sleep pattern. Ideally I’d like to stay up until 12 or 1, but it’s just not practical right now with my job.
