    I think my body clock is running on a 27 hour day or something

    Most people seem to be like this:

    Suppose you're used to getting 8 hours sleep a night. If you wake up at 7am on a particular day, you'll probably start getting tired at 11pm later that day. This means that with 8 hours sleep, you'll get up at about 7am the next day as well. And thereafter, your body wakes you up at around the same time every day.

    But it's different with me. I always naturally seem to wake up about 3 hours later than I did the previous day. But if I use alarm clocks to force myself to wake up for lectures, I end up being horribly tired all day, and then it just completely screws up my sleep pattern - which is why I'm on TSR at this time of night.

    Does anyone else get this, or am I the only one? :confused:

    If I have 8 hours sleep im not tired to at least 20 hours later, so i run a 28 hours body clock. It's horrible!

    if i have less than 8 hours, i cant get to sleep any earlier but feel tired all day instead

    That thing is confusing. On Sunday it wants you to go to bed at 10 in the morning and sleep until 6 in the evening? You would miss the entire day! What would be the point!

    I have trouble getting to sleep no matter how tired I am. It takes me ~5 hours to sleep. But once I'm asleep I have the best sleep ever. It makes mornings evil.

    I have sleep problems as well. In the LRC at 5am doing work. The security guards here thing I'm mad. I haven't had a proper night's sleep since Tuesday. I'm always tired yet when I go to bed, I don't feel sleeply, on tired. SO i roll about in bed for Hours, HOURS!

    This is my plan, no sleep tonight, no sleep this Saturday Night (Sunday Morning), the idea is that I'll be so mentally and physically tired that I'll just fall dead into bed at 10pm Sunday Night.

    What you think?

    I was up because I was doing work... My biggest tip is obvious: relax & stop thinking. Problem with most people is there head is too active when their trying to sleep, and so they can't.

    Pretty much everyone i know around the uni ages has messed up sleep. Personally, i can never get to sleep until about 3am at earliest regardless of whether I've had a tiring day (gym, revising, nights out.)
    The fact that i'm on a gap year and going out clubbing/ drinking at least 3/4 times a week means I can't get into any normal sleeping pattern either. I've only just been up from a 9 hour sleep and still feel knackered..
