So, not counting naps, I have stayed up for a total of 36 hours. I’ve found that I was more sleepy than usual in my classes, but that’s probably because I’m not used to the sleep cycles yet. In addition, my attention span has decreased even more. However, on the Comp Sci quiz today, I managed to think clearly and answered the questions to the best of my ability. The burning feeling in my eyes still has not left me. My plan for today is to just get a good night’s sleep so I can get through my super long day tomorrow. I also plan on abandoning the experiment since I don’t feel that I can take on such a structured sleeping pattern, considering that my sleeping times always vary. It’s probably not that great for my health anyhow. I thought it was an interesting experience. I was quite surprised that I was not dead tired like I expected. In the future, if there is a need to stay up like this, I’ll be sure to remember this experience.
