Bedtimes.

During these summer holidays I have found that my bedtimes have been beyond silly. I blame my ever-chaging pattern of nightshifts/dayshifts/backshifts for this. Many a night I will not go to bed until 8am and beyond and then get up early afternoon and many a night I will not go to bed at night at all, rather wait until the following day and then collapse early evening only to wake up at midnight and so the pattern will continue. I think on average I am probably going to bed every 1.5 days.

Does anyone else do this? Am I the only one? I just can't see to get into a regular sleeping pattern at all. I start back at uni a week on Monday so I should get better by then, though at weekends I will still be doing some nightshifts - I fear it may never end! LOL!

That can't be healthy.

I'm on a strict schedule with work and school. I start work early in the morning 6am, so I'm usually in bed by 9:30 or 10 every night I have work. I know it sounds like a kid's bedtime, but when you're waking up at 5am for work, then going to classes after that, I need to, haha.

I actually enjoy my schedule of sleep, makes my days feel longer - especially on days I don't have class, cause I get out of work at 12 or 1pm, depending on the day. So it's like I have the whole day ahead of me.

Nah it's not a kids bedtime Mike. More a "man who has a lot to do" bedtime.

But aye, I wasn't meaning to moan or anything, just wondering if anyone else does the same. Sorry if it just sounded like a big moan.

Only got a year of uni left when I'll leave my crazy-shift PT job, LOL, so it'll be better then.

Haha Wilow - strange that you said that. My headcase of a neighbour that already thinks I'm a nazi and a catholic (I have nothing against catholics at all, just how he can think I am a catholic AND a nazi is a bit beyond me) also asked me recently if I am a vampire, LOL!

Also, to clarify, I am not a nazi either! LOL

I was in a very similar situation to you till recently, crazy nightshifts, split days and so on. I found that i was just going to bed when i felt tired/had some spare time. I found the addition of a blackout blind to my room was helpful. However i have just started my new job properly (well, that is, started just doing my new job, not working two full time jobs) and it's a 9-4 mon to friday with a few extra bits here and there.

I have started to get some sensible routine back to my life now, although it took about a week or so, as i found that i was going to bed at about 5 in the morning as i wasn't tired yet, but then was jiggered for my 8.45 start next day. Ths went on for a while, then i started falling asleep in the afternoon when i got back from work, then waking up at 11ish and staying up till god knows when...

Eventually i have managed to regulate myself properly, by being very(ish) strict and ensuring that i go to bed by midnight at the latest (well maybe 1-2 if i read for a bit - i'm in bed after all, that's got to count for something right?) and get up at a decent time, even on my days off. It's been a struggle, and i've felt like poo for a while, but it seems to be working, i even managed to get up at 9 on my day off and actually do something with the day rather than sleep!

I'm still adjusting to a nomal life, but it seems to be working, although i do miss having days off in the week - town's so full on a weekend! I'm used to having it to myself...

I know what you mean about that Toby. I much prefer having a weekday off than a weekend off.

Back to uni on Monday, so possibly there will be some sort of assemblance of order form here on...

You're definitely not moaning. Didn't want you to think that I was intending you were.

I know my response didn't really fall into this thread...but I figured I kind of have a different sleeping schedule too.

What do you do for work?

I work in McDonalds. Kinda silly job but gives me some money until I graduate at least. That and it made me unable ever to eat McDonalds again, so I guess it's actually been beneficial to my health in some way, LOL!
