What insomnia is not

I'd like to start this long-over-due post by stealing this from Lemony Snicket.

"There are two kinds of fears: rational and irrational. Or in simpler terms, fears that make sense and fears that don't. Being afraid of realtors is an irrational fear."

Being afraid of making a new post is far from being a rational fear. This truth has dawned upon me only today as I'm making this post to clear up the dust.

I'm now on the edge of a really long summer vacation. When I mean really, I really mean really really long. Saying that twice would still not convey how really long it was. And its about to end now. With mixed feelings, I'm writing this, as this vacation has been the best so far. Many interesting things had happened worth a lot more blog posts.

But in this post, its just about how my sleeping habits had gone berserk all this while. Its not that I give a damn about it anyway. But well, its just interesting to have a look at.

Whats below has been as much close to my actual sleep timings as possible. These 24 hour clocks have the green zones which is the sleep zone on an average day. Click to enlarge.

  9. I think my graph would like a caterpillar going round in circles! My friends used to joke that, with my internal clock, I frequently go "around the world in 8 days" :P

    Took me on a guilt trip down the dark memory alley :)
