    i love waing up late

    and do things slowly slowly. especially on the weekends i just get up and keep on looking out of my window, leave the bed late. I am for sure not a morning person (Conditions apply ;) )

    I have been a morning person up

    until about a year ago every morning I used to b up and moving around by 4:30 with no alarm. now I'm lucky if I can wake up at all with 3 alarms each having different sounds makes no difference whether i go to sleep early or late, usually I do wake up easier if I go to sleep...

    I'm really not! Not by a very long way.

    I'm a seriously grumpy cow until I've had some coffee (well look at my username) and a cigarette. Up to that point I'm likely to kill someone.

    Mornings annoy me. I'm always

    so tired and grumpy. If I could, I'd wake up at noon every day.

    Right when it strikes 6AM,

    my body starts signalling me to fall asleep. Times specially between 6am to 930am are the fvcking worst. To put it straight, I'm a night person, love the darkness and the star lit sky, love the glowy moon vibe, love the sun when it sets, love the city lights.

    Nope, doesn't matter how much sleep

    or coffee I get. Anyway - any activity before 10AM should be considered illegal and punishable by law.

    the birds chirping on a cold Friday morning. I love holidays! Yay!

    I have grown to associate the sound of early

    morning news to going to school and generally waking up early. Now that I have graduated and my schedule doesn't require me to wake up very early I have come to hate hearing the morning program on the television. I usually like how soothing the silence is in my house and any...

    I am the bitchiest person in the morning.

    I need at least 6 hours to get used to it, then you're able to talk to me. If I'm spoken to before then, I lash out. I hate when I get to school, and some perky person thinks it's ok to start talking to me asking me about my day before. If you really need to talk to me in the...

    I've never been a morning person & never will I

    be. It's not only hating having to wake up early but being mentally awake. I am not mentally awake until 10am & that goes for eating food too, nothing enters my body before that! & one huge pet peeve of mine... I hate morning annoying talkative people that just feel the...

    It’s just not for me.

    Some people get their energy from the early mornings, others become more active during the day. I’m obviously the type of person that belongs to the latter. I’ve started with an internship position earlier this month, and of course they’ve set me up to start every day at...

    I can't cheer up as soon

    as I start the day. I need some warm ups. Some small talk, a little bit of jokes, maybe a chocolate... Only then I can perform in my full potential. But at nights... Oh the night is made for the minds that finds joy in the accompany of the stars... There is a poet in my country...

    Actually, I AM a morning person.

    I just think morning should come a little later in the day.

    I don't consider myself a morning person.

    The only reason I am up early is to get ready for work. However I have learned to enjoy the silence and beauty of mornings. The sunrise can be amazing and again it's so quiet. I do enjoy the the silence! It's just me and I love it!
