By popular demand!
So it's an established fact that my sleep schedule is really, really, all the fuck over the place at times. There's a level of odd consistency, but that's about it. One of them is that I will nine times out of ten wake up before or just after 3PM, no matter how late I get to sleep. Anything after, and it's unusual circumstances.
What usually ends up happening is that I get to sleep later and later, until I decide "fuck this" and try to pull an all-nighter. Which has been shaky in recent years, and the worst thing about it is, I can function on little sleep, but not too well on no sleep (keep this in mind). Once I do it though, I usually do end up plopping it back to a level of normalacy in the end; sometimes it goes off right away, other times it takes like a week. However, on two notable blogged-about occasions, it's gone horribly, horribly wrong.
On one of these occasions a year or two back, I triggered polyphasic sleep. In short, I slept a little here and there, but not all at once. I think I was doing this for like a month. Then there was the time I misfired on the timing, so I was going to sleep at like 4PM-6PM and waking up at 1-3AM. That happened more recently: 3-5 months back, I think?
The good news about the latter, and bad news about everything else, is that I do start to "slip" gradually. Even if I do achieve normalacy, it's a matter of when in regards to whether it's going to last. So like right now, for example: I was doing well for about 2-3 weeks: sleeping around midnight then waking up at 9-10AM. Then it slipped and became like 2AM-11AM. Then it just crashed, and here we are at 7AM-2:30PM: thankfully the 3PM-thing stopping things from getting way too fucked.
So yes. That's how sleep works with me.
