A (probably futile) attempt at normalizing my sleep schedule

Yesterday, I woke up at 4. While 4 am would not have been that bad and something I could probably make work for me in terms of my continued quest for employment, I woke up at 4 pm, which really isn't doing me any favors. Part of the problem is that I have always, dating back to childhood, naturally slipped into a schedule where I go to bed around 5 am and wake up sometime in the afternoon. I think I did this every summer growing up except possibly the summer I had 2 shifts a week volunteering at the zoo that I needed to leave the house before noon to get to. (Other pre-college summers I either had about 2 weeks of all-day day camp or about 2 weeks of all-day volunteering at day camps, and slipped into my nocturnal schedule for the rest of the summer which was largely self-directed time.) The other problem is that I seem to want to sleep about 12 hours a day lately. Anyway, this clearly isn't working out for me very well in terms of accomplishing anything with my life.

So, I'm not going to sleep tonight. With luck, I'll be good and tired about 5 pm tonight, and can sleep a solid 12ish hours and get up at 5 am Monday morning, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and full of optimism about my ongoing Job Search From Hell. Rather than going to bed at around 5:30, I made and ate a hearty breakfast of eggs, hashbrowns, and coffee. (I kind of regret learning how to make hashbrowns, because they are easy, cheap, and delicious.) I now consider my new day started.

Today should be an interesting day.
