    Hours Into The Day

    This morning as I sat here with my 3rd cup of coffee, I wondered how many others were sitting all alone, the rest of the household sound asleep in their beds. That inspired me to see if there was actually a group of people like me searching out for some early morning...

    Early Rising Gives Me Energy

    My boyfiend and i are complete opposites... i say what i plan on doing and stick with it.. he changes his mind.. i get angry when we are not treated properly at a restaurant (for example) say the food is burnt or the server is rude etc - he overlooks everything and leaves a tip...

    It sucks cause my man can sleep all ******* day!

    We go to bed at the same time, say 10pm, and I'll wake up at say 7am (not even since I have insomnia, more like 4am without my sleep meds), while he will sleep until NOON, or until I wake his *** up...

    An Early Bird.

    I am always up at 6am on a workday. Normally in work by 7:30. Weekends I'm up no later than 8am. I dont like tea in bed, once I'm up that's it.

    What's a Sleep In?

    What's a sleep in? For me any time after 0630. My average wake up time is around 0530 in the morning. If I've got a bit on the mind with work and other stuff, it's not uncommon for me to wake around 0400 and start work (I own my own business). I'm definitely one of those people...

    But I Must Be In Bed By 9pm

    Somehow my sleep pattern got latched up to a 9pm start. If I don't start sleeping by this time, my next moment only comes two hours later. Then, I make a break around 2:15 am. Perhaps I wake up shortly again at 4am, and then I keep sleeping until 6am.  I'm happy with these...

    I really hate going to bed early. I think it stems from my childhood, as when I was sick, I usually didn't sleep at night.
