Schedule clear: Check

Thu 22 November 2007

Sorry about the month.5 wait. I lost all sense of self-discipline as midterms piled upon homework and I just gave in instead of holding strong through it. My laundry piled up, my room became a mess, projects went on hold, everything became either study, eat, sleep or waste time …

Attempt #2 scrapped

Thu 04 October 2007

I realized that the reason as to my failure wasn't due to low motivation or my homework, it was because I had low energy. That low energy was because I tried to start during Ramadan, a month of fasting, and the sleep deprivation plus food deprivation was too much for …

Failed attempt #1

Sun 23 September 2007

Yup, I failed. Well, more like I aborted mission. It was Saturday morning, I had a bunch of math and physics homework and I was in a zombie state. I plan on doing my homework earlier in the week next time and trying again within the next two weeks.

Also, I had failed to wake up at 3am, but instead was awoken at 4:30 by my roommate for Soohoor (actually because my computer was playing music across the room and my alarm was going off, for the past hour and a half).

Morning 1

Fri 21 September 2007

So, this is my first morning of Everyman. Basically, I napped at the "correct" intervals yesterday, and now I woke up after 3 hours (more like 2.25) of my core sleep. It wasn't hard getting out of bed at all, but staying out required the use of a sweater …

Polyphase attempt start.

Thu 20 September 2007

As many people have written online, I've started my schedule by taking "naps" where I don't necessarily sleep, but I do get that rest. This is the first day of the extra naps after a few days of research into polyphasic sleep and the options.

I've chosen to undertake the …
