Last week’s poll asked about your favorite kind of cheese. Cheddar, unsurprisingly, was the #1 choice with pepperjack right behind in #2 (which I admit was a surprise for me). Plenty of interesting choices for those who chose “other” including some which made me cringe and others which made me seriously consider going out of my way to try what was recommended. Mmm cheese.
This week’s poll is about sleep. Last week was hell for me. I had a long final paper due for my class which I had to throw together, including 80% of the research, in a week’s time. With that came a lot of long days and long nights writing, researching, and editing (thanks to those of you out there who helped with that–you know who you are and you’re all the best!) Because of those long days and nights, and worry about my grade (91/100 which I thought was a bit on the low side boo), I didn’t get as much sleep as I normally do.
I’m a steady 8 to 8.5 hour a night sleeper. I have always required that much sleep (aside from a short time due to meds which made sleeping a near impossibility) and I cannot fathom how the vast majority of the US population gets by on as little as 3 – 5 hours a night. I am basically comatose if I sleep that little. Ugh.
Well, with all the school stuff going on I finally crashed on Friday afternoon. After submitting the paper and wrapping up work for the day I laid down on the couch for a quick 30 minute nap which turned into a quick 2.5 hour nap. I even slept in on Saturday morning until 8 AM! I plan on taking a much needed nap following my Father’s Day gorge session at Fogo de Chao later today (never been but know enough to fast before we go ;-))
So how much sleep do you need? Are you one of those crazy people who routinely functions on less than 5 hours of sleep? Perhaps you sleep very little during the week and make up for it all on the weekends? Are you a 8+ sleeper? Whatever you are go ahead and vote over there on the sidebar and then comment on with your sleep habits before checking out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
