I didnít sleep too well. Iím in a hotel room with 2 other people so I didnít get to bed until 9:30. Then one of them doesnít go to bed until like 1AM. Finally I had to tell him to just turn off the light and use his iPad in the dark. I donít know what time that was but Fallon was on. Then after that I fell asleep with my headphones on and he started to snore so loudly the entire night heís gonna end up eventually killing himself by giving himself sleep apnea. I think I woke up at 4AM with a dead phone and no charger. I took a Valium because I was super anxious and I then took one of those trippy 15-20 minute naps Iíve been having lately. I think this is a different generic of Valium that makes me tired after taking it. But yeah not the best night but not really my fault either.

I slept fine last night. I slept from about 5:15-5:30AM I donít exactly feel rested but I feel decent.

I fell back asleep again until 6:30. To be honest I feel pretty good right now. Better then Iíve been feeling recently.

I fell asleep around 7. I woke up at 8:36 thinking wtf. But I fell back asleep again quickly. I woke up again right around midnight and I thought there was going to be an issue but I fell back asleep within 10 minutes. After that I woke up every 1-2 hours or so but just long enough to check the time. Iím up now but itís my usual time. This is the second night in a row where I slept good. Iíve been sleeping pretty consistently well since getting the new bed on Tuesday.

I got out of bed feeling like my age. Iím 28 but I could feel 30 coming on this morning.

My sleep cycle is so weird. Lately I'm sleeping in the evenings & awakening somewhere around midnight. I try to go back to sleep, but I just can't. I keep trying to outsmart this thing.

I didnít take any melatonin so I woke up early at about 1:30. I guess itís not a big deal. Iím not too tired. At least not right now. I donít know how things will be by noon.

Edit: I fell back asleep again for over an hour around 3 something. So I feel fine. I didnít take anything I just drank a Coke and had a protein bar. I ate dinner early last night so I was pretty hungry.

I slept through 9 songs when I fell back asleep including Lose It by Eminem. I must have been in a pretty deep sleep.

Since the time change I'v gotten into a sleep habit that I would like to change. I'm always very tired when I go to bed around 10p.m. The usual difficulty with falling asleep, but that's actually been better lately. What I don't like is that I awaken around 1a.m. and get up. Then I go back to sleep after a while. My alarm goes off at 5:15a.m. so I can get up and feed the cats and give Sidney her insulin shot. I stay up for awhile, then go back and (hopefully) sleep some more. It's all okay except for the 1a.m. thing. I need to discipline myself to stay in bed instead of getting up at that time. I'm not really taking anything to help me sleep. Occasionally I use ZzzQuil or melatonin.

I had a cheerwine soda around 4 after I was tired and had taken my meds. I thought it was just some kind of cherry soda and those glass bottled sodas dont typically have caffeine. But I noticed after drinking half the bottle that this one did. So I slept for a couple of hours but I've been up for about 45 minutes and its early.

I woke up at 11:30. I fell asleep right around 7 so it wasn't very early. At least for me. I just went to bed super hungry so I woke up super hungry. Part of me wants to go back to sleep the other part wants to stay up so I can sleep in the car and all night this next night.

Edit: I got abot half an hour more of sleep. But its still awhile before I can get up and take a shower. I'm just so hungry and I've had a piece of cheese and 2 mugs of hot tea and a glass of iced tea.
