I also don't have to get up until 8. But it's hard for me to get to bed before 1, before midnight is a miracle and requires a lot of planning.
No but when I was younger, I couldn't take naps either. I don't consider myself that young now. My bf is able to take naps, even at work (powernaps). I wish I could because it is better to get up earlier to get certain things accomplished and then take naps to go on with the rest of the day. If i don't get a good nights sleep, my whole day is basically ruined and no fun for me. Problem with naps is that I have a hard time falling asleep, especially with daylight out.
My version of a 'nap' is if i'm extremely exhausted from staying up the night before. And then I sleep for a few hours and get up then just sleep through the night.
