If it's 8 hours total, but not consecutive, does it still count?It's 4:00am. Exactly. Why am I awake?
I can guarantee that I did not just wake up extremely early and hop out of bed. No, I haven't been to bed yet. In fact, my sleep pattern is now so fucked up that I only sleep in 3-4 hour increments twice daily.
Here's my sleep schedule: Sleep from 5:00 to 8:00 or 9:00am. Monday and Tuesday that's all the sleep I get. Wednesday through Friday, in addition to the above hours, I also sleep from around 4:00pm to 7:00pm, give or take an hour. Saturdays and Sundays are completely dependent on my school schedule and demands; if I'm lucky, I sleep from around 5:00am to noon.
Ok, now that I've bored you to sleep, I'm going to go get ready for bed.
I know there's an animal that has a sleep pattern like this, I just can't remember what it is. Maybe it exists only in my dreams.
