    Is it a crime to fall asleep?

    -.- had a rough night and I get blocked because I didn't respond because I fell asleep at 1am....thank you. Didn't realise it was illegal to live in a different time zone.

    i work shifts; morning starts at 6am

    and i have to catch the transport around 5am. I have to wake earlier. I can't sleep early unless i'm really tired & i am a very light sleeper, bad combo. By the time i sleep, probably left 1 hr till alarm sets off. Start of the day: walking dead.

    My body basically would much

    rather sleep than be up with the sun. The sun actually overwhelms my eyes now but-- oh well. I'll fret about it when I actually have a life and real responsibilities to take care of. Right now my life is ****.

    I'm always up late ( I mean really late like 5

    AM US Eastern Standard Time) I'd like to meet some other people to talk. You can be in a different time zone or a night owl. It doesn't matter to me. I'd just like some late night company.

    I faked sick to stay home from school yesterday

    to sleep in. I ended up doing so and didn't wake up until 1 pm. I didn't sleep at all when nighttime came along, and now I'm sitting here at 6:43 AM contemplating whether or not to fake again so I can sleep or just go to school. But then again it's raining and I don't like rain...

    I work a 12 hour rotating shift schedule.

    It's a five week rotation. In 35 days I work 7 day shifts and 7 night shifts and occasionally 4 8 hour shifts on days. Talk about a messed up schedule! But the extra days off are worth it.

    Nearly every day, I sleep all day.

    Except for days I have work (Twice a week). I have always had this fear of going to sleep just for being scared to deal with the next day. Night time at about midnight is the only time where it feels like it's just me & the world. It's where I finally get to breathe, & relax...

    Every night I set my alarm clock to 6 am

    and if not then 7 am. Somehow every morning I shut my alarm without opening my eyes. Then I end up waking up at 9 and actually get our of bed at 10. Is there any other way to wake up other than setting an alarm?
