One major flaw of our society is that it only embraces a diurnal schedule, one in which people are most active during the day. It is accepted that human are diurnal creatures because our eyes function best with abundant light. However, it is also proven that people have different circadian rhythms - which means, no, they’re not insomniacs in need of medical attention. It is determined by our DNA chronotypes. Research have been done to infer that, nocturnal activities are an evolutionary novel and not adapting to these changes pose a flawed social structure. People with higher IQ also tend to be “night owls.” These night owls function better at night-time, but are forced to accustom to a mandatory standard of living having to wake up at the peak of their melatonin production.
I for one, have experimented with sleeping 10am to 3pm, which is 5 hours, and feeling absolutely phenomenal until the next day’s 10am. However, no matter how many hours I sleep at night, I always wake up feeling groggy and needing coffee/red bulls. This may come off as being lazy or nonconformist, but spending a couple hundred dollars each year on energy drinks and coffee is not setting the bar for future health (nor the health of my wallet).
If our society had a bi-schedule system, we’d see a dramatic decrease in sleep related accidents and heavy morning traffic. We’d also see increased productivity with a 24 hour cycle.
today, i’m so tired.
Why do I work so hard? How am I motivated?
I am motivated by myself because I have to.
There is a certain kind of future I seek. A future that requires me to do what I need to do.
I can’t sit around. I can’t stay in school for longer because I feel lazy sometimes.
I can’t burden people.
Others have families to fall back on. I dont have anyone to turn to. I don’t. No one.
I’ve always known that I have no one to rely on but myself.
It’s not a matter of being motivated; it’s more along the lines of having no choice other than to keep moving, to keep pushing.
I don’t know how to be weak. I won’t allow it.
It’s just that there are some days.
This feeling racks up without me knowing.
One day it just hits all at once.
I hate it when there is competition and I don’t come out on top.
I don’t know how to handle this.
How can people study less than me and still do better on exams?
THIS IS NOT OKAY. NOT. OKAY.
MY BODY’S LOGIC:
Oh you’re stressed and overloaded with work? You definitely don’t need sleep then. Insomnia: ON.
Oh, it’s the weekend? Why don’t we just get drowsyasfuck at 10 PM.
If you decide to have a child, it’s YOUR responsibility to make sure they eat, live properly, go to college, and most of all, respect their life choices. As a parent, your love should be unreciprocated. Don’t complain about taking care of your kid if its your decision to have them in the first place. You should have been prepared to sacrifice your next 21 years giving your all for them. If you are going to complain, then use a goddamned condom.
