I’m trying to switch around my sleep cycle, such that I go to bed really early and wake up really early. Last night I went to bed a little before 9 and woke up at 5:30. Tonight I’ll try for a little past 8 and waking up a little before 5. I got the idea from Mark, which may not be a testament to its merit, but I’m going to give it a go anyway. The worst that happens is that I get a little tired. So I’m going to start just doing all my homework almost as soon as I get home, eating dinner, then going to bed. I can get almost all of the work done before 8, so I can go to bed around then. If I can be asleep by then, I can wake up at about 4 or 4:30, have a few hours to do whatever I want, and actually be getting more sleep than I do now. I’ll tape TV shows I want to watch and watch them in the morning. The TV is in the basement, so I won’t wake anyone else up. And it’s even more efficient this way, since I can fast forward through commercials and watch an hour’s worth of television in just over 40 minutes. Yes, this seems like a good plan indeed. The tricky part is actually switching. Waking up is easy enough, just set an alarm, but going to sleep early isn’t always so trivial. Hopefully by doing it somewhat gradually that won’t be a problem. In either case, the alarm is going off at 5 tomorrow morning, so I hope I can get to sleep early enough. Anyway, it’s time for dinner, and then some work on my social studies essay, and then off to bed.
