    It's so impossible to get up for work, despite going to bed reasonably early!

    Alarm rings at say 7:15AM, you reset it to 7:45AM and your STILL tired. However, if you ring in sick at 7:50AM you can quite easily get out of bed at 8:00AM and begin the day without feeling drained!

    HATE THAT, what is it about pffft :twitch:

    Someone was telling me the other day that humans "dream" in 1.5 hour cycles, thus if you have 1.5 / 3 / 6 / 9 etc.. hours sleep, you should wake up fresh as the proverbial daisy...

    I think its shite personally, no matter what time it is, I feel like shite... I finish work at about 7pm and that's about the time I start to wake up & get hyper lol

    my nanna (yes) used to say its the hours of sleep before midnight that do you most good.
    I dunno about this, they didnt have electricity back then, or amplified music even arrrgggh

    I do know REM sleep can be real draining, cos its when you dream the most, and its often just b4 you wake up / after you go to sleep.

    Funny how its all cured with a sick note!!! Did you drop some happy tunes to celebrate?

    I dont have to get up til just after eight so normally Im not too bad, although since getting back from holiday Ive found it damn hard!!! I spose I could get away with not getting up til about 8.45 as I only live a 5 minute walk from work, but I like to be able to have a shower/breakfast/quick spliff etc in the morning.

    I'm supposed to be up at 6, and at the bus stop by quarter to 8.

    Thing is if I'm going to work I can get out of bed no probs, but when it comes to college...

    Must be something in my subconsious or something lol. :kermit:
