Microsoft, Mojang, and Minecraft

Wow. I never thought I would have to write something with a headline like that, but being an avid Minecraft player for quite a few years, yesterday's news regarding Microsoft's purchase of Mojang (and of course the future of Minecraft) made me sad.


Sleeping Twice - Three Weeks In

So, I just passed the three week mark of my experiment with sleeping twice during the day - a shorter night followed by a long nap in the evening.


Coffee failure

One of the things I learned from reading up on biphasic sleep is that it's ok to miss a nap now and then. Compared to the (totally insane) schedule of polyphasic sleep where you constantly nap your way through the day, it seems reasonable. It's just ingrained in me from my youth that you're not supposed to nap. As a friend of mine commented, "mum always said that sleep during the day will make it difficult to sleep in the night". True, to some extent, but we're just shifting things around here.

So, on the third day I sort of missed my nap.


Biphasic sleep - first days

So, the first few days of my sleep cycle experiment has passed, and I thought to share a few experiences so far.


Early riser or late owl?

Being my own employer means that I have varying working hours. Most of the week I work with clients in Stockholm, which is approximately one hour away whether commuting or going by car. (1,5 hours during rush hour or when leaves on tracks prevent Swedish trains from running properly)
