    It's Just Easier

    for me to relax i think. I know im definately more thoughtful and creative at night. I tend to think about much deeper things in life at night. I think that its probably because during the day my thoughts feel so chaotic with all my responsibilities and such that it makes me more...

    Alright, Not Exactly As Drastic As Day And Night

    I'm not talking werewolf transformation or anything but I am definitely more emotional, reflective, insightful and just generally a cooler person at night....in my opinion anyway.  I do give some credit to the moon cycles but it's more social for me.  I seem to avoid...

    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.

    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.
