    It is very common for teenagers to need that much sleep. Not many get it, though.

    Walk around a college campus any weekend and see
    when they begin to appear.

    So, either you go to bed earlier [ yeah, right!]
    or you get up later.

    If you thing you may be anemic, low red blood cell counts, your doctor can help. There may be other medical causes, but if you feel ok otherwise, it is not really that abnormal in young people.

    during school i only need aobut 8 or so...
    i only get 12 if its during the summer or weekends....... and i just feel tired all the time....
  4. i know what you mean man, during the summer i usually stay up all night and just sleep when i get tired. i usually go to sleep around 10 in the morning and just sleep till im not tired anymore, most of the time i get 8-10 hours of sleep but sometimes i go to sleep before noon and get up around midnight, and then still feel groggy all night like i hadnt gotten any sleep at all. i think its pretty normal for us teens, so nothing to worry about i guess :)

    What about 30 year olds? If I don't set an alarm, I'll sleep till noon easily.

    When do you go to sleep?

    And I don't think it's an issue. I imagine it just depends on a persons physical makeup.

    Shoot, I can sleep for 20+ hours if I'm so inclined (only did once). I usually bonk out for about 4 hours at night, and about 3 hours in the afternoon, and I do fine. I think...

    Possibly, but I have a skewered slang. "Bonk out" would be to sleep, similar to "Conk out." If it has sexual connotations, well, then I won't go out of my way to confirm or deny anything. Makes me seem mysterious. :ninja:
