    I Love Nighttime

    I am so much different at night. I'm much more energetic and feel more at peace. During the day, I just feel like crap. I'm more depressed during the day and just don't feel like doing anything.

    Night And Day

    Although there are some things about my personality that never change-- my creativity, my random humor, my eccentricities, et cetera-- I have found I tend to be different during the daylight and dark night hours.  I am apt to be more jovial and sociable during the day, (although...

    My True Self

    Night to me is my own form of meditation. It's a chance to be alone in silence. I like to work at night with low music in the background. I am the most productive, most intelligent, the most like myself at these "sleeping" times. I'm glad to see I'm not alone in that.
