About me and why I’m here

I started this because I have never been able to be well-rested while getting up early in the morning. No matter how many times I try to adjust to a “normal” schedule, my body and mind are both straining at the leash to go sleep after midnight and get ~8.5 hours of sleep from there. After doing some reading about how different people have different circadian rhythms that are largely immutable, I decided that it wasn’t me that was broken: it was a society that still insists on an archaic 8 to 5 (if not earlier) schedule. This society also pushes the myth that sleeping in is somehow lesser, that getting enough sleep is a “lazy” activity. Well, no more. This is my stand against what is no less than the slow, systematic torture of huge swaths of the population. Maybe it’s not even a drop in the bucket, but it’s a start. 🙂
