Not funny, Randall

Yeah, I’ve been there a few times. In the past my insomnia has usually been driven by anxiety, but my most recent bout (a couple months ago) seemed to be a shift in my circadian rhythm. I was able to resync my internal clock by strictly adhering to my target wake-up time no matter how little sleep I got, but only after several days of total exhaustion.
Since then I’ve found it easier to make adjustments to my sleeping patterns. I’ve had a few lazy weeks (ah, flexible academic work hours) but this week I’ve gone to a schedule where I actually get up strikingly early (by my standards) and (gasp!) eat breakfast, in order to have a substantial block of time in the morning reserved for writing my thesis. Those of you tracking the Project 365 photos will have noticed that this officially started on Wednesday, we’ll see how it goes…
