That seems to be my natural sleep cycle; pushing it back to midnight is about the earliest I seem to be able to manage.Orthos wrote:See, I think they're weird for going to bed so early. But then I'm another night owl and have learned to function on very little sleep when I am forced to get up before the hideous light of the day star crosses the horizon. And I see nothing natural about this whole diurnal business...especially when it starts about the time I want to be going to bed. :)Drejk wrote:Apparently being unable to fall asleep until midnight or later is considered strange by the majority of the population.

Nah, you're fine =) I know my sleeping patterns are unusual, so I'm kind of used to having to explain the situation a little. No offense taken.
My normal up-time is 7. This week however it's 5 - 6 is when I have to be at the office >_<
Yep, that's my natural sleep schedule as well. But even when I have to get up at 7, I can't get to bed before 1 or 2. And earlier than that...well, I just plan on naps. Going to bed at midnight required too much medication. And melatonin does bad things to me. 1 mg of melatonin knocks me out like a light for a minimum eight hours. Not in a good way. In the if I happen to conk out in the hallway that's where I'll sleep and no one can wake me kind of way. Apparently I must not produce much of this stuff naturally...
