After working myself to the max the past few weeks, I was feeling exhausted and I had reached my limit. Last night I was supposed to meet up with some friends for coffee, so decided to take a short nap and then get up and meet up with them; this was at 7:00 p.m. When I woke up, the clock read 5:00 a.m.!!! Ooops:P Yeah, I was pretty worn out, sleeping max 4-5 hours a day for over a month; there will come a time when you simply just cant go on and yesterday was my breaking point. But I really felt like going out, I guess I got some explaining to do :P Got me thinking though on whether this system I am following is healthy or not. I mean is it better to work yourself out to the extreme for a while then crash at once and make up for all the lost rest or sacrifice some of your entertainment and socializing hours at the end of every day and get an early sleep so you wake up refreshed every morning? For me, I dont think I can handle sleeping early and letting work be the only activity in my everyday life; if I dont see friends at least every two days, I know I will lose it. All in all, it was a terrific and refreshing much needed good sleep :)

    I think that you answered the question yourself.
    You know that it is not healthy, the questions is; are you willing to change your habits a bit to have a healthier routine?

    Fonz i know how u feel dude..I used to work in the hotel industry and my hours were hell! i used to work fom 8am - 10pm,one shift! and sometimes to the early morning :( so, my social life was thrown out the window once i signed with them :( Now, i left that industry cause i couldn't take it anymore, even though i loved working in it, i couldn't handle the hours and the fact of missing out on social life
