      How Late Do You Stay Awake?

      So I'm basically wondering how late people stay up at night on a regular basis. You can just post the time(s) you usually stay up till, bridge the gap between sleeping earlier vs the AM hours, or provide detailed explanations of how late you are awake

      I am putting it here in senseless banter for a reason , and go!

      For me, it has been around 2am-3am, although I'm trying to get to sleep earlier during the 1am hour so I can dream more.

      I've been nocturnal my whole life, which I assume would be medically classified as DSPD.
      As a child, I struggled to stick to a normal time schedule - I would lie awake for hours before getting sleepy, and would always have trouble waking up for school.
      I was misdiagnosed with insomnia, but I eventually found that I had no trouble sleeping if I was allowed to choose my own schedule.
      I basically feel like a zombie if I'm forced to adapt to a 9-5 schedule. I have no energy during the day and my mind is fuzzy.
      I peak in the late afternoon/evening, and have another energy burst in the early morning, like 1-2am. These are the hours when I can think most clearly and get the most done.

      I'm lucky enough right now to not have any daytime commitments, so I can experiment with my sleep times.
      I've been moving my sleep schedule closer to CDT to match my overseas dreaming partner, CanisLucidus, which means going to sleep at about 1:30pm my time.
      In the past, my most natural sleep time has been about 6am, but I have been comfortable moving it a few hours earlier or later than that.

      So... there's a long answer for you!

      Hmm let's see. I have had several during the last couple years.
      About 4 years ago I would go to bed around 01:00 am and wake up between 8 and 12 depending on when school starts. Then a little later I would go to bed at around 03:00 am and wake up around 12:00 give or take an hour on both ends. Then there was 2 years ago when I would go to bed at around 10:00 AM and wake up around 18:00 pm. Just in time for dinner Though nowadays I guess I go to bed between 02:00 and 03:00 am, and wake up around 12:00 give or take an hour. Using the sleep schedule I have now, I feel the most optimal I would say. When I used to wake up at 08:00 am I felt the worst by far. No energy at all, until after dinner time.
      Lucid Dream Goal:
      A perfect week!

      One week with at least 1 Lucid Dream in every night.

      Hmm maybe I should look into DSPD, since I normally don't start feeling tired enough to sleep until after midnight, around 1:30 ish or 2. Wow, but that's lucky you get to sleep when its most comfortable for you! I didn't start this nocturnal habit until college... but now I just naturally stay up late if I've got no early morning commitments.

      Yeah I'm no morning person either, I think I used to be though lol. Geez I couldn't imagine sleeping through the day though. I've taken long naps during afternoons before if I was feeling absolutely wiped out but nothing like routine sleeping during the day.

      Me and sleep have a great relationship.I usually can adapt easily to a new schedule.I'm at my best when I wake up around 4 or 5 a.m after going to sleep at around 9 or 10.Lately i've been going to sleep at 4a.m,then I wake up around 11a.m.So i'm just tiny bit off from my schedule that makes me feel the most well rested...
