Hooray for Irresponsibility
So...does anyone know any strategies for completely resetting your internal clock? I need to convince my brain that night does not, in fact, begin at 5 AM.

It's easy to switch your circadian rhythm back to "normal"...
There are a lot of strategies to do it. If I wasn't so lazy I'd list 'em here...
Try googling "Shift work" for starters
I have a easy method. Have a large coffee at about 2:30 and stay up late. Do this every day for say 4 and half to five moths and you'll be all set.
Pull an all-nighter (well, in your case, all-dayer) and remember to go to bad at the right time in the evening that night. Only works if you stick with it every day, though. Friggin' technicalities.
Go to bed, even. Friggin' spelling errors.
I’ll presume you’re not interested in sleep inducing drugs.
According to a class, and my own trial once..
If you’re lacking sleep too.. maybe you should try catching up on that first. Sleep deprivation is only supposed to take about 2 days make up for.. give yourself a week of extra hours though. Get some sunlight in the morning – maybe open a shade too so you wake up to it. No caffeine in the evening. Exercise helps, if you don’t do it late in the evening. Start going to bed a little earlier each night.. say, half an hour. It’s all about discipline though.. whatever approach you take, you need to stick to for a while. Do you really –need- to switch your clock… it’s a pain.
