Me needs at least 8 hours. I usually find that waking up early in the morning around 6 or so , makes me feel less tired throughout the day.

On days when I get a production call in the middle of the night, my next day goes real bad.

Just the habit that i have developed over the years. Can't sleep before 4-5 am and can't get up before 12-1 pm. But it's just the college days, i guess.
Next year, life is going to be different! :-)
Cheers!

After more than 7 years in call centers, I just cannot sleep during the nights. For those who know Tamil, there is an old Sivaji Ganesan song for creatures like me & foxt.sebastian-

iravinil aatam
pagalinil thookam
idhu dhan yengal ulagam...

I work in a BPO and my timings are from 8:00 pm in the night to 7:00 am and beyond depending on the client/pressure/meetings etc.

Can we like also mention like what we are doing at a particular point in time on this same thread on a daily basis so that the night animals have constant company of other fellow BHPians to assist them thru the night?

Few Examples -

Going for a meeting
checking out a particular thread
watching a particular serial
watching match highlights
Reading a novel etc

I know that the thread might move very fast but then there's no harm in trying.

MODS - please delete if this violates any rule.

Mostly will go to sleep by 3am and wakeup by 10am around. That's for weekdays. Weekends it'll be totally unpredictable.
Mostly due to the reason that I like to work late night with no disturbances around and if no work then I like to watch a movie or play a game. Want to change the habit to sleep early (atleast by 12.30/1am) but not successful yet.

I usually sleep light all night. However even the slightest flatulence tends to wake me up, regardless if it is self-emanated or suffered in silence.

Its bit modification of that. I have to wake up at odd hours, does that qualify.

Well for me , I think this is exactly opposite and I should be included in this thread as well As I sleep at odd hours and that too at around 9:00 PM and wake up at 4:00 so sleeping at 9:00 PM is obviously odd hours for all.... lOl

And can be included in this thread...
