If you are pushing yourself out of bed, drinking a pot of coffee, drinking caffeinated soda and then still feeling tired you aren't getting enough sleep.
Generally, you can't "make up" sleep by going longer on the weekend -- get that sleep during the week consistently and you will do better.
Well here is the strange part:
BEFORE i used to not be able to fall asleep until 2 am every night when I got 9 hours of sleep and would still struggle to get up (fighting with the alarm and such)
NOW I get 6 hours if I am lucky and I sleep like I am dead and get up the moment the alarm rings ( I am not happy about it but I do it)
I can't exactly figure out whether its becuase I will lose my job if I am late or what...but I kind of like it
