I swear my sleep schedule is actually getting weirder.

Allow me to fill in the backstory. My sleeping schedule at Google was very simple. I went to bed when I was tired and I got up when I was no longer tired. Generally, this ended up being a 25 to 28 hour cycle. I'd slowly rotate around the clock. I would synch up with everyone eventually, and I'd have long periods of time when I wasn't synched with anyone in particular and could actually, you know, get some work done.

Now that I've left Google I was expecting my schedule to get a little weirder. But what's happened . . . well, it isn't a "little" weirder. For example, two days ago I went to bed at around 3am. I got up at noon. I got some work done, then around 7pm I got suddenly sleepy. So I went to bed. I got up at about midnight and I've been up since. I'm starting to get a little sleepy, but I've got some time left (which is good, because I need dinner and to finish laundry.)

For those who don't want to do math, that's 9 hours of sleep, 7 hours of awake, 5 hours of sleep, and 21 hours of awake.

I think, once I'm done with the various committments I have in the next two or three weeks, that it's time to seriously try polyphasic sleep out again. At this point it's honestly not stranger than what I'm already doing.
