I Am Not a Morning Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,728 People

    I love my my sleep. I LOVE it.

    Every single morning regardless of whether I slept well, I will be in a bad mood for about 30 minutes. I hate being woken up and having to get out of bed. It's my favorite place to be.

    The only morning I like is one

    where I have stayed up all night and get to go to bed when the sun comes up :)

    I don't think I will ever be a morning person.

    I find my bed to comfy to get up and get ready. I only get up with I have to go somewhere important. Please no one judge I bet a lot of people on here hate mornings just as much as I do.

    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!

    Okay, if you get my EP handle (Nyx) then you

    absolutely get that I'm not a morning person. If you don't, then you probably just think I'm from New York (which I love but I'm not).I don't like the morning/daylight because it just seems wrong! All that freaking daylight, giddy people, talking, freaking commuters...

    In high school I used to wake up at 4am every

    single school day. Since I graduated, 4am no longer exists. I can barely get up at 8 now. I don't see it as being lazy anymore. I figure, 4 years of waking up at 4am for 5 days every single week, I deserve some sleep in time.

    It's been a lifelong joke in my family - you

    don't talk to Nikki til she's had her coffee (juice in my younger years lol). In my world, sleeping time would be from 2 to 10 am. :)

    Often I turn on 2 alarm clocks set

    for early morning because I want to start the perfect morning with the breakfast and prayer. One click beside my pillow, the other on the dining table. But I often turn them off in the morning and keep sleeping till the last minute before going to the work.

    Just finished work (10pm ish here)

    and I want to try and get up super early to get lots done again tomorrow. Not sure I'll make it though. I always have these grand ambitions of waking up early, but come morning I don't care if the world is falling apart, I just want to keep sleeping....

    Once upon a time, I knew what early mornings

    were. Waking up in a disoriented state at 4:45 am to get to my 6 am shop job, which partially took place outside, in the cold dark of a northern Pacific coast morning. The number of times I'd lazily swing my legs out of bed, sit on the edge looking at the floor through...

    Never have been, probably never will.

    Nights are so much better. Mornings mean burning eyes, tired sluggish feeling, and going places when I'm not ready yet just because that's the way of the world. If it were up to me no one would have to be anywhere before noon lol.

    I've got it bad. My kids are consistently late

    to school bc we are bad with the mornings. One of my sons is a morning person, but the rest of us are not. It takes me awhile to get going & sometimes I sleep thru my alarms. It's bad. We do have the habit of getting things ready the night before. But still I feel like I should...

    I Wish If I Could Wake Up Early...

    Aahhh!!! I always wonder how some people manage to wake up so early. If you ask me, I've been working on it since my childhood and despite all my mom's lectures, it's still one of the toughest tasks for me. I don't understand why I'm always awake during the nights and love...

    I'm not a morning person,

    but I love with a family that makes so much noise: GET UP! YOU'RE A MORNING PERSON! Of course they don't yell that haha, (sighs) no, they just don't know how to be quiet- that, and I'm a feather-sleeper. Ugh! FML!

    I have to set 6 alarms to wake myself up in the

    My parents are seriously comparing me to my

    I feel bad for whoever I'm going to marry

    or date for a long time Bc I'm a total B when I wake up. Don't talk to me for atleast 30 minutes or you'll see satan himself. Hahahha even after a nap. Especially then Bc I don't remember who I am or where I am. That's the sucky thing about naps.
