TQC, will you help me with my weird sleep patterns?|
Due to my boyfriend's work schedule, my (and his) sleep schedule is pretty fucked. He works for 4 days, 6 pm to 6 am, then is off for 4 days.
On those days he works, I pick him up every morning at 7:30 am and take him to his carpool meetup spot thing at 4 pm. Since I live twenty minutes from him, I just stay at his house from the time I pick him up to the time we leave in the afternoons, then I go home. I usually go to bed around 3 am, then get up at 6:45 am to leave and pick him up. When I get to his house, we go to sleep from ~8 or 9 am to 3 pm.
On days that he's off, he likes to stay up way too late then sleep until 6 pm. I understand that he's worked hard and is tired and wants to relax, but it's a little excessive. So, because I like to hang out with him on some of his days off, I end up with weird sleeping hours as well so I can be awake at the same time he is.
So. What should I do? It is thankfully the summer so I don't need to work my sleep schedule around other things, but I don't want to feel sleep deprived. Should I just sleep at his house from 8 am to 3 pm, then stay up and repeat? Should I try to go to bed earlier in the night, get up at 6:45 am, and stay up at his house (leaving me to be EXTREMELY bored for 7 hours)?
Help me figure out what to do and how to fix my sleep schedule. :(
