Glad you are moving into earlier sleep time. Please don't hope. Commit. Gradually work your way to a sleep schedule your body accepts that includes eight hours. So much in life improves when you do.
And please, don't worry about "wasting time by sleeping." You are much more efficient in how you use time when you are nourished by good sleep.
Nice to find that special "me time" you like in the morning after you sleep. :)
