    Generally I go to sleep at 2:30 and wake up at 7:30 so 5 hours. But I have been known to stay up till about 6 and it doesn't seem to affect me that much tbh. That's probably why I do it so often ahaha

    7-8 hours

    As many as possible!

    About 9, but I can function on zero hours for a few days, not that I'd reccomend trying it again!

    But who wouldn't want to spend their life asleep?

    Usually, on normal weeks I have around 5/6 hours, but then on weekends I try to get about 8 hours a night. In exam season, I try to make sure I have around 7/8 hours per night because I think it's really important to be extra focused when you're taking an exam, and I need a lot more sleep than usual to be able to concentrate like that for 1/2 hours at a time.
