Lately I've noticed that the less sleep I get, the better off I am at school and work. I cant imagine this happens to everyone because its recommended that people get atleast 8 hours. So my question really is: How much sleep do you get per night and if that effects your overall feeling in the morning?

It most certainly does. Last week I had short time to sleep in the beginning and was a bit grumpy. Later in the week I had time to sleep in and I was my normal self again. Yesterday I came back from a movie at around 0:45 and had to get up at 8:00, 7:15 of sleep is not enough for me. So today I was more like a zombie than an actual human XD.
The bottom line is get a steady sleep cycle and you'll be fine.

Ultimate answer is yes, a big one.

The key I've found is to keep a steady sleep schedule.
I get roughly 7 hours of sleep every night. It doesn't matter if I'm working that day or not, I still set the alarm clock, and I still limit myself to no more than 7 hours. If I just keep sleeping, then I can very easily sleep 12+ hours, and that just ends up throwing me off balance for the next few days.
If I get too much sleep, I actually feel more tired than if I got too little.
Also, I tend to do better if I sleep after work. That way, I have a few hours to sit around the house and wake up gradually, and I'm 100% awake and aware by the time I head off to work.
