    Less Than 8 Hours

    I can be an early riser or late riser depending on what time i slept. I sleep heavily. Nothing wakes me up. You have to hit me with something or shout in my ear. When I sleep, I SLEEP! Don't disturb me!!!

    I Sleep!

    At least four hours within every twenty four hour period, if I can... Though, I'd rather get eight to nine hours, honestly... Sometimes that's just not possible.

    Yup

    I sleep pretty well most nights but occasionally, I find it very difficult to sleep/to get to sleep. I normally sleep about 7 hours a night but if it's a weekend, I tend to sleep longer in the mornings.
