I had a total disaster of a day these past 24 hours. 30-60 minute oversleeps all over the place. We're talking 3.5-4 hours total.
The biggest problem was that my new wakeup MP3 wasn't effective. Volume was a bit lower and it faded into the Eminem song rather than jumping into it. My sleeping is so deep now that it's pretty tough to wake me up. Went back to the old MP3... the seagulls weren't so bad.
Thinking about having two options for naps - 25 minute and 35 minute. I'll use the 35 minute one when I'm not very tired, to allow some time to fall asleep. As an experiment today I held a remote in my hand and pressed the button every once in a while to see how long I was actually awake for. That 25 minute nap was 10 minutes of sleep and 15 minutes trying to fall asleep.
That's the big problem with oversleeping - one minor error causes a chain reaction. If you oversleep by even 30 minutes, you won't need to sleep the whole time for your next nap. Then that causes you to be even more tired during the one after that.
I tested out the air compressor alarm... holy christ. I jumped out of bed, thinking I was about to be run over by a Mack Truck or something. Unfortunately I manually switched it off, so it didn't wake me up during my following oversleeps.
Funny... I slept for about 6 hours today which seems like downright gluttony (and feels like it). If I got 6 hours back in the day, I would have been exhausted all day. Onward...
