things that are making you happy - Page 2305
I was on the elevator to my floor at work last Monday morning and I was tired as shit (half hung over from drinking and listening to a Jazz band) and this guy gets on and says, "Ah man, you stayed up to finish watching the game too?" I made him feel really awkward when I had no idea what he was talking about.
this is what i do literally every night of my life. staying up late for no real reason besides pushing off going to bed, searching for some asinine form of distraction to stay awake.
its no fair, right?
but really, most kids get 9-12 hours of sleep. the want to go to bed late, but they get good sleep, hence the insane AM energy.
i do get up early sometimes, and once i get over the hump, its a great feeling. but imo, and ime, the only way to get used to it, is to go bed earlier 99% of the time. and even then its a bitch get out of bed early, even when i am reasonably well rested. ymmv.
It's easy to get up early if you can really adjust your schedule. I think that is really hard to do though. When I was overseas I was asleep by 9 and up by 4 everyday no problem. On off days I was able to sleep in until 5 or 6 but no later. But that was unique in that there was no pressure from anywhere to stay up.
