    is it correct?

    Hi there,

    Is it correct if I say " I had to wake up early, so I couldn't sleep all the time I wished"?

    Thanks

    Correct or natural? The natural form is:

    "I had to wake up early, so I couldn't sleep (for) as long as I wanted (to)."

    My suggestion:

    I had to get up early, so I couldn't sleep for as long as I wanted to.

    Cheers,
    Sarah
