I Am A Late Night Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,754 People

    I frequently stay up late despite having to get

    up early the next day. I'm tired of course but I can't help it. I'm drawn to staying up.

    I love taking walks in the dark.

    It's cold and quiet. The street or city lights look beautiful. It's a great time to just feel peaceful. (:

    Sadly, college doesn't allow me to embrace this

    side of me. Have to wake up at 6:30 every day. If I could I would be awake in the night right up until the early hours of the morning. It's a shame modern society doesn't cater to people who feel better at night.

    I have always been a night owl,

    never a morning person! After everyone's asleep in the house, then it's my time to unwind and relax.

    I think I will just start living during the

    night. Life would be so much more pleasant and peaceful then. Nothing seems rushed, or chaotic...people aren't forced to socialize. Sounds perfect.

    I stay up just thinking about things :) During

    the day everything is loud and so busy so night time is my Zen mode....I can focus on my thoughts and what I want to do. I think clearly at night time. It's even easier to talk to some people and have better converstaions

    I am a Night Owl. For two years now,

    I do not sleep at night. I stay up all night and rest in the morning. Do I need medicine? Does Anybody else have this problem?

    I have no more illusions.

    I am different and mostly alone. In many ways I'm the minority. Love/insanity is not honey and roses it's an ache until you drop dead. They care. They don't care. It never ends for me but they go on burning down more stuff. I know I'm a little nuts and have a tendency to rant...

    I've often wondered if going to sleep early

    would make a huge change in my life? I usually get up at 5am to fix the H lunch, but it's a zombie period and I go right back to sleep until 9am or whenever my daughter wakes. Would I be more productive? Would it help me find the motivation to change my daughter & I's life? Does...

    My sleeplessness is getting worse.

    I usually slept from around 1 am until 7 or 8 am. Now, I honestly can say I only sleep 2-4 hours a night. Today was 1 to 230. I've been up since then. I just took an Ambien. But I'm sure I'll be back awake in 2 hours.

    And I just took it now which is later than usual. So I'll be up later than usual. I just can't shut down at night. My mind is like a Nascar track. But I love nighttime. It's finally quiet. I get to relax and it's my own time. Watch a movie. Go on my phone. Read a book. I...

    There's nothing like getting in pjs,

    putting another bad day behind you and zoning out. Either watch a movie on Netflix or just play on my phone. It's the only time I get to relax. I love rain at night too. It's so peaceful. Or watching the moon and stars for a bit. Yeah. I'm a night owl.

    Late Night Thoughts

    I love this time of day. It's 4:28 in the morning. It's quiet. It's peaceful. It's serene. I love being able to soak up the energy that is floating around while others nest. Perhaps this is why people tell me I have too much energy. But this time of day is perfect for meditation...

    Always Have Been A Late Night Person!

    Since I was just a kid I have always been a late night person. I now work midnights. I love it! I don't know why but at night it seems that I am able to get more things accomplished and my mind seems sharper. I am more awake and energized! I love the night...it's not insomnia...

    I used to do everything at night.

    That includes school and work. But now that I've gotten a little older, I've had to get used to actually SLEEPING at night. My job was at 7am and school starts at 9am (different days of course). Guess I gotta start being a little more "normal" :P :)

    I am such a late night person.

    I think it is because when I am alone at night it gives me time to really think things through! My days are super busy and nights give me time to relax:-)

    I consider myself a night owl too.

    I think I focus better at night. Plus, the night is so mysterious and full of wonder. It's much prettier too in my opinion. Anyone else feel the same? Feel free to message me if you want to chat.
