As I've been getting farther into my 20's my energy levels have been changing noticeably.
Starting about a year and a half ago, after several years of working all day and going to school at night without a break, and after graduating college, I began to get very tired starting around 4:30-5:30PM, to the point where I really couldn't function effectively at work.
I found that when I went home, in some cases I would literally walk in the door and go straight to sleep, take an hour nap, and then wake up and be perfectly fine, and indeed, able to stay up until 1 and 2AM, fully alert, and even with more energy than what I had at, say, 1PM.
This has gone up and down over the last year or so in intensity, but it's going up again now. Yesterday when I got home I could hardly carry myself, took a nap for about an hour and a half, and by 1AM I was wishing I had 3 or 4 more hours that I could afford to stay up, because I was not only awake, but focused more so than I often am during the day.
My day job is not physically demanding at all, though it can be mentally demanding, it's not frequent.
Is there an explanation for this? I have a rapid metabolism, but I do not know if that is a direct cause of my problem or not.
