It's now Sunday and I need a new body-clock. I stupidly decide to go to bed at 7am, then can't get to sleep for a while. All I had was half a pint of coke at around midnight. I need to go to bed earlier. I don't think it's insomnia as I can still sleep easily, unlike this man. I think it's mainly due to lazyness and the fact that sleeping is so boring.

Did you know that sleep isn't really for rest? You can save the same amount of engergy as you save by sleeping by not eating quite as much. Sleep is actually for rebuilding some proteins and re-organsising memories and stuff.

I woke up at about 10.30, which is OK, listened to Daft Punk but fell asleep again! I woke up again soon after 12. I should go to sleep at 12 and wake up at 7, not the other way around.

I have my first 9am lecture tomorrow, at 9am, which could be interesting.

OK. Stop.

I did psychology and rats died after not sleeping for 5 days in experiments I studied. Also humans were shown to die after 2 weeks without sleep- this story is henceforth a load of crap. You need to sleep to restore vital, needed proteins.

That's true. Maybe this man is different or maybe it's not true. Ananova is a reliable news source. It was also carried on this Russian site and was on one of the largest Ukranian TV networks. I'm still not sure if it's true, but I think it could be.
