Do you have one? And if so, what time?
My mum tries to get me to bed at 10:30 (needless to say, it fails miserably). 49 times out of 50 I will not 'go to bed' until 12am, then mum will go back to bed and I'll get back up again for another 1-4 hours.
Bedtime is stupid and I can manage my own sleeping pattern.
I myself like stop doing things around 10 PM to 10:30 PM. I may watch some television or movie after that if I have a free morning the next day - like this week I'm doing a James Bond marathon - but usually it's around that time.
You just wasted 5 seconds of your life reading this message, you will now think about something you could have done for these 5 seconds instead of reading this useless message that now made you waste 10 seconds of your life.
Nope, about two years ago my parents just stopped caring about my bed-time schedule.
Probably because they had me do my own schedule one night, and told me i could stay up
and i went to bed on the same sleep schedule as i did before.
I hail from a family of early risers and retirers. Even in my younger, more robust days it was rare from me to sleep past 0500, assuming I nodded off at a reasonable hour. I also seem to need less sleep than many. Throughout my adult life I rarely slept more than five hours per day. That never used to bother me. Being a "morning person", I'd wake somewhere between 0330 and 0500 wide-eyed and bushy-tailed, rarin' to go.
For the last some years my sleep habits have been a mess. I struggle to stay awake as long as I want, then wake far too early. This bothers me to no end. I often document sleeping hours, so far as they can be recalled. Here's my listing for the past some days:
Tue 27 Nov / Wed 28 Nov ................... 21xx - 0159
Wed 28 Nov / Thur 29 Nov .................. not recorded
Thu 29 Nov / Fri 30 Nov ...................... 201x - 021x
Fri 30 Nov / Sat 1 Dec ........................ 234x - 0345
Sat 1 Dec / Sun 2 Dec ........................ 20xx - 0109
Sun 2 Dec / Mon 3 Dec ...................... 23xx - 0459 (sleeping pill at bedtime)
Mon 3 Dec / Tue 4 Dec ...................... 23xx - 023x
Tue 4 Dec / Wed 5 Dec ...................... ???? - 0118 / 0xxx - 0254 (at least thirty min gap between sleeps)
Military time is used throughout. "x" and "?" mean I could not recall those exact times when I added them to the log.
Notice the sleeping pill. I rarely used them. My problem is not that I can't get to sleep. but rather that I can't stay asleep as long as I want to.
Letting myself fall asleep early (easily done) isn't much of a solution. You'll notice that when I do so I simply wake correspondingly earlier.
I should point out that I have no commitments that force me to wake as early as I do.
On a regular basis, I don't have a bedtime. From a scale from 1-10, 12:00 is from probably 5, 11:00 is probably also 6. 9:00 is probably 7-10. Just agreeing with a lot of other people who posted, usually will just stay up when I'm tired, and when I'm awake, I'll just read a book or play on my Nintendo 3DS.
