    Naturally Nocturnal

    I have tried for YEARS to sleep during "normal" hours...never works... On an average night, I'll fall asleep around 11:00-midnight (litterally feels like I need a nap), then be wide awake and hungry around 2 or 3. I'll stay wide awake until about 7:30 am when it starts...

    Storywhat?

    I don't know what I am supposed to include here. I am Lyrad Bakshi, which is Mr.Lyrad Bakshi to you. Or Sexy Wiggle Pudding, I don't care. I have been full time nocturnal for about 8 months. In the nocturnal hours, there is less crowd to contend with on the transit, and I am sure...

    Night

    I love the night, and I always will. I love the dark and watching the stars, the nighttime animals. The world seems so much more peaceful at night, less busy, less rushed.

    Sacred Nocturne

    A little after the younger years of my childhood, I became a Nocturne. I was never one to fight my urges or desires or instincts, and this is what it had brought me. The night gives me something that the day cannot; that primal feel that I will not deny that I love. I feed from...

    I enjoy the solitude of the night.

    The moon above; the dewy grass below; the calm air swirling around... Night is the reset button for the chaos of the day. Coffee is really good, too.

    I Love The Night.

    I don't know how else to put it really.. I mean I have tried every method possible to switch hours around to be "normal". The doctors I've went to say I have no sleep disorders. No matter what I do the night sky seems to call to me tell me I should be awake. I feel comfort at...

    At Home At Night

    It's nothing earth shattering. But I need the night time. It's like my time. My private time. To think and to be me. I like that it's only me at those times. There's little noise, little to distract. Nothing on TV worth watching. But now there's the internet and that can take me...

    It's Funny

    Some people PM me and ask "why are you up so late?". I say I am always up late! I am usually up until nearly dawn. I have always been a night owl. Even in the womb. I didn't start moving in there until 9pm. So my mom told me.
