@ibstubro That’s not sad. I WISH I had the self-discipline to get to bed that early.

Mine is somewhere between 2 AM and HNNNGGGGsnzzzzzzzughhhhh (the sound of me waking up in the morning with a hangover)

I have to be ready for work by 7 am, so yep, about 9:30, 10pm tops if I want to get my butt out of bed.
It is now 8:57 and I am almost there, another 10 minutes….zzzzz.

Work nights it’s 9:30/10, but my alarm goes off at 4:10.

Weekends, 11, 11:30.

My routine goes something like this. “hmmm it’s 1130, probably should be getting into bed soon, let me just check a few things online first…..ahhhh fuck it’s 4am…”

40, and I drop around 0530–0600 four days a week, but usually stay up until 0900–1200 on my three-day weekends.

Yes, I work nights.

62. Usually around 11 P.M.

rojo's avatar

59 next month. Usually around midnight plus or minus two hours. Up and at ‘em at 6:21 am.

I think of it as being 11 but in reality, it’s about midnight or 12:30, sometimes almost 1. It depends on whether I have my daughter with me, in which case it’s closer to 11. If it’s a weekend, it may be closer to 1. I just turned 48. On a week day, I wake up between 5:30 and 7, without an alarm clock, thank you very much.

rojo's avatar

What time is it?

Ok, later than 12:27 CST, DST evidently.

muppetish's avatar

Usually between 12:30 and 2:30 AM. I haven’t adjusted my late-night writing schedule since graduating.

Bluefreedom's avatar

I am 47 years young and my bedtime is usually between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. after the drive home from work and breakfast. I work midnight shift hours from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

Smashley's avatar

Crap! Thanks for reminding me. I get carried away some nights…

Symbeline's avatar

32 here, and my bedtime is way too late, as may be guessed if anyone checks out when I posted this. I have an evening job so that works out because I’m a night owl. Although I can wake up really early if I have to…but I don’t like it. Mornings depress me.

rojo's avatar

Nite nite all. I will check back in the morning.

‘preciate y’all

Sleep is for dreamers, pardner. ’‘spits’’

downtide's avatar

Usually around midnight if I’m working the next day (getting up at about 7am), and around 1am-2am if I’m not (getting up at about 9am). And I’m 47, if that makes any difference. And also, no alarm clock needed here either. I set one just in case but I usually wake 15 minutes before it goes off (my bladder is a better alarm clock these days).

JLeslie's avatar

I like when it is 11:00. Because of my husband, sometimes I get on his routine and it is more like 9:30 and I hate it. I guess some might say I technically have insomnia on and off the last ten years. Sometimes not going to sleep until 1am, or waking at 4am for a couple hours. I don’t think of it as insomnia though. If I had to work 9–5 it would be very troublesome. Probably if I worked 9–5 my sleep pattern would be more regular though. the majority of my life I slept right through the night, 9 hours.

Waking up early for me is being dragged out of bed to go to school or having to jump in a shower to get ready for work or an appointment. Why does anyone associate that with positive feelings? Waking up early because you naturally do is a different thing.

In bed by 10PM (sometimes 9PM), up at 6AM. I am 42.

hearkat's avatar

We head up to bed between 9–10 and the light turns off just after 11:00 (it’s on a timer, because otherwise we were like @uberbatman). We are 47 and 50, and we get up between 5:30–6:00 on work days.

Leanne1986's avatar

I’m 27 years old and my bed time is between 11pm and midnight usually. On a work day my alarm is set for around 7am.

KNOWITALL's avatar

Depends on my day, but normally I got to bed around 10:30pm now, and up between 5a-6a.
I’m 41 yrs old.

I do remember my grandparents always staying up for late night tv all their lives and getting up at 4a-5a, so it makes me feel like a wuss.

Coloma's avatar

I’m 54 and man..I need 9 hours to feel optimal, I have a very high mental energy and my brain wears me out. lol

Cruiser's avatar

@KNOWITALL You are at that age where you might begin to see your ability to sleep your 7–8 hours slip away. I read a study long ago on why this happens but forgot the mechanism that is at play for losing the ability to sleep soundly for long stretches. I am lucky if I get 5 straight hours. Even on the weekends I am almost never able to sleep past 6. I hate it but I have learned to function on the sleep I get and rarely feel tired or exhausted.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Cruiser Yes, I remember my grandfather telling me that as you age your body requires less sleep. He told me that if my friends and I were out in the wee hours of the morning and ever needed him, not to worry about waking him, bless his heart. :)

Pachy's avatar

Usually no later than 10:30.

My age? Old enough not to feel guilty about taking a daily nap.

ibstubro's avatar

I can’t nap. I’ve always been the type that if I fall asleep for 5 minutes, I’m good for another 8. Sometimes I can doze, and that gets me by.

My brain wears me out, too @Coloma. Honestly. They need to find a way for thinking to burn calories…we’d both be thin as rails and able to eat voraciously!

Mimishu1995's avatar

@ibstubro I think you need a nap. Here’s how :)

ibstubro's avatar

@Mimishu1995 I worked hard enough today that I’ll have no trouble falling asleep. No nap needed.
