Sleep dysschedule

My sleep schedule is utterly busted, and it refuses to resolve itself. I'm getting frustrated; it's been like this for three days in a row, although last night is the most egregrious example of its failure.

Last night, I fell asleep at around 9:30 PM. This is earlier than usual for me. Then I woke up at 2:00 AM, flat awake, with no immediate prospects for getting more than the five hours of sleep this represents. It takes me until 5:00 AM to get back to sleep again, at which point I sleep for another six hours, not another three, for a total of 11 hours by 11:30 in the morning. And I've had no shower, I got very little homework done (I was too drowsy to do so, after all), and I still have about six e-mails to respond to.

I'm not sure what's up with this. At least my homework load is letting up slightly for today; I've got plenty of assignments, sure, but nothing I can't deal with. Maybe I'm trying to sleep off last week's not-quite-enough sleep? But that doesn't really explain that annoying bit about waking up flat awake in the middle of the night. On Monday I made the best of it, and took that time to shower and do homework and wander around online, but I wasn't very awake when my alarm clock forced me awake yesterday morning. Then again, I wasn't very awake this morning either after nearly twice as much sleep in that second cycle.

I'll keep trying to figure out some way to get my sleep schedule back in some workable pattern, but I'm not entirely sure how to do that. My sleep schedule often goes through a wide and creative set of variations, this just seems to be one of the more dysfunctional ones.
