Mine seems completely off today....got up at 4:30AM without realizing it, and it's now 5AM after getting ready for work, meaning I got up almost 2 hours before I had to.

Grr.

Has anyone had similar annoyances lately? :p

Yeah I have to.

Yesterday I got back from a dance and I was really tired there. But I got up way early for me the next morning.

Today, I got up late but I only stayed up till around 10:30 or 11:00

I did a 40 hour trip from Kenya to New Zealand without sleep, which probably threw it off more than anything else I've ever done, that was a month ago, took a week to recover.

And I keep working extra shifts (midnight-8am), then returning to a normal day's work, which keeps my biological clock all over the place. Should settle down now that uni's back and my hours have to be regular.

But never automatic changes, always forced.

In proper context.. isn't biological clocks referring to females and I believe... there pregnancy status?

Yeah, usually the term "Circadian rhythm" is used for sleep cycles, IIRC.

Biological clock is usually a reference to how much time you have left to live. When talking about sleep people usually just call it an "internal clock." With school and everything my internal clock is usually pretty good but outside of that, good luck. I can never wake up early or anything. I've known a lot of people who can say to themselves before they go to sleep "I want to wake up in seven hours." and BAM! they wake up in seven hours no matter what. I wish I could do that.

My internal clock is a sun dial kept inside. I've really screwed it up. For the last six years I go to bed anywhere between 11pm and 2am on weekdays, and between 3am and 6am on weekends. I think I can count on one hand the number of times in these last six years that I have had eight hours of sleep. :p

I wish I could find a good clocksmith. :(

I can do you one better. I haven't ever had more than seven hours of sleep in the past four years... ever.

That's incredible. that's roughly a grand total of 17 seconds per day. You must be superman. you're incredible. Have my kids. :D My internal clock is great. I wake up at 7 in the morning, NO MATTER WHEN I GO TO SLEEP. That means I either am totally smashed in the morning from 2 or 3 hours of sleep, or I get like 10 or 9 hours of sleep. It's all up to me.

Strange...

I went to sleep at about 3:00am but I woke again at my usual time of 6:00am :confused: I need a new battery.
