Polyphasic Upgrade / Update

Before I went to Massachusetts, things were peachy. I did 4 days with only one hour of oversleeping. Then during Massachusetts I did rather poorly, but still not too bad. When I got back I was settling back into my polyphasic/gangsta lifestyle, but that got interrupted for my trip to Vegas. And Vegas, surprisingly, wasn't kind to the schedule.

Since then I've been trying to get back on the boat, so to speak. Last night I only overslept by 90 minutes, but I just woke up from a 4 hour (!!!!) oversleep. So now, I confess that I've been keeping something from you, dear reader.

It's true.

A Discourse on Sleep

On Fluent In Life

Everyone will tell you that sleep is important. But no one "really" knows why we sleep, there are many theories of course.

Sleep is a topic that I've been interested in for quite some time now. I've even tried experimenting with my sleep, until a few weeks ago.

I've tried the Everyman polyphasic sleep schedule in 11th grade. The Everyman schedule is split into a block of core sleep, usually 3 hours and 3 power naps throughout the day, which totals to 4 hours of daily sleep. I failed miserably because I simply couldn't hack the sleep deprivation and how it made me feel. It felt as if I was a vegetable moving through the world. So I went back to mono-phasic sleep.

A year later, I decided to try it again, same story, couldn't handle the sleep deprivation.
