I Am a Night Person

    I hate insomnia. My girlfriend can attest to

    that. I'm lucky if I get five-six hours of sleep a "night" due to the shift I work (second shift). I haven't always been a night person though. When I was a child and in school I always slept in a regular manner partly due to being exhausted after an athletic event and school...

    No matter what I can never fall asleep,

    should really go get checked out by a doctor. I've just always been this way, it started out when I was a kid to rebel against my parents. Eventually I just enjoyed staying up late because I had more time to do things. Now I hate it because I need to be on a proper schedule that...

    Poetic Justice

    When I was young I thought that people that got up early were...crazy.  Farmers up at the crack of dawn were off their rocker.  One of my favorite memories growing up was snuggling in with mom and watching the late show ..then maybe even the Late Late show...

    Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

    When I was younger I can remember my parents coming into my room, they would write their own stories and tell me them. I lost myself in their tales and sleep peacefully but ever since they died the night has never been the same. I rarely sleep these days, probably three hours at...

    Quiet Homework

    I find it so easy to do homework at 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning, maybe because everything is quiet and nobody can distract me at this time, also plenty of time to think.

    I find myself more awake

    and focussed in the night than I am in the morning. I end up being more lazy and tired in the morning than I am at night. Like as of right now, and its almost midnight here, I wanna run around outside and dive into the lake but I can't because both my boyfriend (now fiance) are...

    Weren't it for my job

    which requires me to get up at 6 a.m., my natural rhythm would be to go to sleep between 3 and 4 a.m. and to get up at around noon. No matter how tired I am, my system starts working fastest at around 9.30 p.m. I have no choice, I have to become a freelancer. ;) What about you...

    Prefer Nights.

    I'm one who prefers being up at night and sleeping during the day. I've worked nights at different jobs close to twenty years. I prefer the peace and calm of the night. Days are busy and sometimes it is just too hot to leave the house. Is it hard to sleep? Not really. I...

    It's weird, because I love the day,

    the sun and the outdoors, but I'm more energetic and pensive at night. I also have a hard time falling asleep before 12:00am. I guess I suffer from insomnia most of the time. I sometimes believe it's because I was born at 11:00pm, I don't know why. I find it interesting.

    For me my favorite time is  1 or 2 in the morning.  I just like to be awake and observe the world around me, I get in the car take a drive. Or, go to the grocery store.  It's by far my fave!

    Every Night

    I've always been a night owl. Forced to go to bed early as a child, my mind would wander hours on end. I would think of everything and anything. As I grew older, in my high school years, I would stay up to around midnight to 3 or 4 am, sometimes all night on a week night. I get...

    I'm a night person. I can stay up all night

    and then I sleep the day away. True its good to be up when your late night T-V shows are on. But, when nothings going on and you just wanna sleep to escape the silence it sucks. It doesn't help that I hate being in complete silence. And then I'll end up walking around trying to...

    I prefer the night to the day.

    Probably because the night is dark & there's no sunlight blinding your eyes. The only thing that I don't like about the night is that staying up late messes up my sleeping pattern, but that's probably nighttime in general.

    OK, I know that has nothing to do with staying up all night.LOL I used to stay up later than I do now..it's probably my age, the fact that I have kids, stress, etc. that I find myself more tired now. But I still don't go to bed before midnight. I sleep better during the day...
