My disturbed sleep cycles
 Currently my vacation is going on, and therefore I'm at home. Home sweet home! I don't think I need to say anything regarding the pleasures of being at home, you all experience that. For me, the thing that I do most of the time when I'm at home on vacation is--sleep! Sometimes I even wonder how can somebody sleep like this?! I mean I used to think only boys can sleep this much--which I used to watch when my brother used to come on vacation when he was in college. But now I sleep like hell!

My REM and NREM sleep cycle is totally disturbed since I've been to college! At hostel I don't even realize and heck, it's already 12 AM! I mean I didn't do anything except for eating snacks, net surfing, dinner,  and then listening to music for some time after college hours, then where the time flew?! And now since it's already 12 AM, I have to complete all my college work like assignments and maintaining practical files after 12 only. In fact I have a mind set up now. No matter how lengthy the assignments is, I always think "oh, I still got the night time to complete it. I can surely watch this movie now." I often go to bed at 2 or later and during exam times...there's no set time for that because it's the last day when I "actually" study for the exam. Although no matter how late I sleep at hostel, I have to get up before 8AM for breakfast, and I can't miss that. There, even if you ask me to sleep at 8 PM I'll do that! But then, I find difficulty in getting up early in the morning, and that's why I prefer to go to bed late because no matter what time I go to bed, I get up only before breakfast time.

At home, I stay up till 5 AM and that also for no reason! Before you think something like "she must be studying at night at home", let me correct I don't study when I'm at home because I get vacations only after my exams. I bring a single book with me, just to show my mother! (I know, I know what you're thinking....good girl gone bad!) I usually sleep after 3AM only when I'm at home and I get up only around 11AM! And the weird thing even if I somehow go to bed early at night when I'm at home, still I get up only around 11AM, unless I've to go somewhere. I think my mind knows that there's nothing urgent to do and I think that's why it prefers to take some extra nap time! I think its the resultant of my college practice of going late for bed.

I've felt that when I go to bed late, I get up early in the morning than usual. And when I go to bed early at night, I sleep too much that day.

I know it's not a healthy practice. I used to be a good girl who used to get up early in the morning with the first call from parents, and now I'm becoming a total owl. It's the night time when I can concentrate properly. 

I'm trying to improve my habits but so far it's been 'tough'!

With this, putting a pause for now. See you soon. :)

Just want you to know that my sleep cycle was weird in college too. I think it's due to all the studying and change in schedules. I think you could do good by setting a schedule for yourself regarding your studying and sleep times. This will help you get back to a normal sleep cycle which is so important for your health.
