Day 2 - It's Still Going Smoothly

Day 2.1
Sleeping time: 1:55 - 2:00
Mental 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Tiredness 0 1 2 3 4 5
REM: No.
SNS: 6

Another supershort nap after I again almost forgot my nap. This time I got on time to bed, but not properly prepared, therefore my mind kept racing and it took a while to fall asleep. When I finally did, I got 5 minutes of light sleep and woke up to the slightest sound of Zeo's alarm. Considering how little of sleep I've gotten it's amazing that I feel as good as I do. Still, it's cold and I've got the urge to curl up. I have still fair enough functionality though.

Okay, it's been about a hour since waking up and I'm really starting to feel uncomfortable. Not zombie mode or anything, but tiredness is starting to get me.

Now it's about half an hour to bedtime and I'm really struggling to keep my eyes open for the first time. Actually I'm writing this just to keep awake. So, yeah... I guess that's all for now, expect I can't stop writing, because I don't trust myself to stay awake. That said, if I'd fall asleep now, it wouldn't be bad oversleep, but already oversleeping barely into the second day would suck, so I won't be allowing myself to do that. Okay, I won a couple of minutes there. I can't keep writing forever, can I? God I'd just wish I could go to sleep.

My productivity has been pretty much dead for the last couple of phases. I'm just playing games or listening to music at the moment. Then again, there's lots of worse ways to use your time. I'll try to keep myself awake by humming the songs I listen, I guess that's all for now.

Well, that didn't work, I just opened my eyes. I didn't really drift off, the eyelids just keep feeling so damn heavy. I try to keep moving, rubbing my eyes, face and stuff to keep awake.

I'm only 20 minutes away from a nap, but it feels that eternity's wait is in front of me.

I wrote more, but my self-censorship prevents me from publishing everything. Not that it was anything outrageous, just complete waste of time for any readers. It seems I'm gonna make it, in five minutes I'll get up and go to bed. Alarms are set and ready. Considering that barring any oversleeps I survived this night only by sitting at the computer is pretty good sign. But tomorrow night will be a lot of tougher.

Day 2.2
Sleeping time: 5:40 - 6:00
Mental 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Tiredness 0 1 2 3 4 5
REM: Yes.
SNS: 7

Again, according to my Zeo I had short REM before falling back to light sleep for the rest of the nap. No recollection. Overall it was a light sleep nap. And I still hate the way I feel. Had really strong urge just go back to bed, but I shrugged that off I guess. I've basicly been barely awake for the last half an hour just staring at the screen. The clock is 6:47 now. I should really figure out something to as if I continue like I started this phase, I'm going to fall asleep.

Really struggling at the moment...

Day 2.3
Sleeping time: 9:35 - 10:00
Mental 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Tiredness 0 (1) 2 3 4 5
REM: Yes.
SNS: 8

This nap totally hit the spot. 10-minute REM was there and I remembered the dream as well. More of this.

I still can't function much, but at least I can sit doing nothing without being afraid of falling asleep. My thought-processes work normally, I just don't feel like doing anything.

However, I'm going to reset the streak. I think I slept extra accidentally at the computer after that 6 am nap. Not much, and it probably won't disturb my adaptation, but I think I need to reset my streak. I'm talking about the time between 6:10-6:47, I don't remember it so I must have passed out for an extra nap.

Day 2.4
Sleeping time: 13:50 - 14:00
Mental 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Tiredness 0 1 2 3 4 5
REM: Yes, no recall.
SNS: 2

Again I went to bed a bit late, but the bigger problem was some noise that my brother caused by playing FEAR. He refused to use headset. That said, I still grabbed ten minutes of sleep and according to Zeo, hit some REM aswell.

Day 2.5
Sleeping time: 17:30 - 18:00
Mental 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Tiredness 0 1 2 3 4 5
REM: No.
SNS: 3

Decent, lengthy nap even though I was a bit worried considering there was everyone else around and lot of distractions. I fell asleep quickly and catched some deep sleep. After waking up I exercised and that energized me to normal energy levels. It almost feels like I haven't been up nearly 60 hours straight with only naps in between!

Day 2.6
Sleeping time: 21:40 - 22:00
Mental 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Tiredness 0 1 2 3 4 5
REM: Yes.
SNS: 4

Actually two-part nap. I woke up in the middle of it, but I still had over fifteen minutes time to sleep, so I got the sleep. Still feeling surprisingly fine and wasn't even groggy when getting up, despite getting a bit of deep sleep in the end of the nap.

Day 2 rough total figures
Sleep 130 min
Deep Sleep 20 min
REM 30 min

I'm getting into the groove of it. I slept more (note the extra 20 minutes caused by passing out though), got more REM and even improved on deep sleep, though so little that it probably doesn't matter at all. Overall nothing significant happening yet. Don't be fooled that I'm adjusting, I suspect it just being some normal variance. That said I can finally say that I'm back in napping-mode well and truly, with no struggles to get to sleep and I even dare to get a little longer naps without fear of groggyness. I've gone as early as x:25 to bed when I've thought that it might take a little longer to get to sleep. So far my evaluations about how much time it will get to fall asleep have been pretty much correct. The frustrating thing is that the more tired you are, more close to the official napping time you have to wait.

Now it's the hard part again, the night.
