I had a few drinks with Mark and Michael after rehearsal tonight, and the resultant buzz i got made me want to sleep. After putzing around the internet for a little bit, i did that, falling asleep around 21:00, and then i woke up at about 02:30, refreshed and ready to do things. so i did, and now here i am at 5:30am, and i'm starting to feel tired again.

And thinking about it, i think this is a good example of why my sleep schedule is generally always so whack. When i was in high school and in my undergrad, i generally lived off of 4-6 hours of sleep a night. I would take naps occasionally, but i usually didn't need to.

These days, i think i need more sleep than that on average, but my body is still used to waking up after about 4-6 hours. This was true even when i was working at Symantec having to get up every day at 7 to be ready for work at 8. On most days i didn't go to bed until after midnight, and on at least two of those nights i wouldn't go to sleep until 03:00ish because i was playing cards at the poker club downtown. But i compensate for this by taking more naps to get an extra hour to two into the mix.

i'm not sure if this is a good long term plan, but it works for me right now because i have the flexibility to be able to pull something like that off.

at least i think it's working. ask me again in three hours when i wake up from the nap/sleep i'm about to take and have to go through a day of individual appointments, drum hardware maintenance, and office meetings. i'm betting that i'll get home and crash a big nap before getting up in the evening to clean the apartment.
