    Can't Find A Happy Medium...

    I do tend to sleep deeply, that much is for sure. However, on weeknights, I tend to stay up a little too late and end up not getting enough sleep for work the next day, OR I stay up late on the weekends and end up sleeping in more than I should and feel groggy and usually have...

    These past three to four months, I've slept like I used to sleep when I was 10. Before that, it used to be 4,5 hours every day.

    Both *Zzz*

    The point is, in weeknights, I tend to stay up a little too late, sometimes due to over thinking (and I love to read before I go to sleep, or watch tv, or take my laptop with me to bed...bad habits!) and end up not getting enough sleep for the next day, or I stay up late on the...
