I have to do something about this sleep schedule. I cannot be going to sleep at 5am and waking up at 1pm. I should be going to sleep at midnight and getting up around 8 (which is still late by 'real world' standards). It is a really hard cycle to break though, especially when that midnight rolls around but you're just in the middle of something, not sleepy or tired in the least and can't make yourself go to sleep (partially because you feel guilty for having had done nothing so far with the day). Then comes the weekend and i feel like i shouldn't have to follow a 9-5 because it's finally the weekend.

Anyway, so obviously, this is another unspeakably late start to the day. Most people are in this coffee shop are stopping in after their day at work. The trouble i'm having (and this generally applies to more things than just this) is how not to make myself feel like absolute shit and a total failure while simultaneously keeping myself disciplined. I'm having trouble defining this line.

  1. Seems like you've figured out the sleep problem, but another option is to find out some good way of getting yourself up one morning, regardless of when you actually went to bed. Try drinking a glass of water right before bed, you may realize that you have to pee SUPER BAD when you first wake up. Splash cold water on your face before you leave the bathroom, then don't go back to bed (if possible).

    You may be a bit tired your first day but you can try going to bed at a decent time that night and you may fall asleep as wished. Also: exercise is supposed to help. Something else I would like to be working on.
