    That's Part Of Why I Did Enter Afternoon School

    Instead of taking the bus at night to get back home, I always walk all the way back home, it's around 35 minutes, but I really like how calm it is at night, and even more while I listen to music.

    Apparently Risky

    I walk at night in South Africa in the city, I walk at night with lions and all wild things around with no rifle and no form of defence and I have no fear. If it is my time to die then I will die whether I am walking at night or sleeping in bed. I always find that if you drunk...

    Not Afraid, Actually Prefer It.

    I am not afraid to walk at night at all..There are less people around and it's just more relaxing and calming to me.

    It's Peaceful

    When I was little I used to be a total chicken **** of the dark. Walking in it, sleeping in it. Just everything. But it wasn't really the dark. It was what could possibly be hiding in the dark. Now I can just walk around for fun. Usually to calm down, or be at peace with the...

    I Don't See It As Being Alone.

    I see it as be no different from walking during daytime. Well the only difference is that it is quieter, there's less people out there and you have the opportunity to star gaze and listen to the night creatures. That alone makes me feel comfortable and not really alone.

    I Feel Calm And One With The Night

    I don't fear the darkness, but I do stay extra alert when passing corners or other people on the street.  I'm not scared of them, and nor should I be.  Sometimes I feel like I'M the dangerous one walking the streets.

    Though I Should

    due to the area I live it and would not let and friend or love one walk alone, but I would. Simply because dont want what others do to effect how I run my life or what they say, like when its safe to walk or that I shouldnt walk or should have known better. Yes Im stubborn!

    Not Afraid...hell I Prefer It.

    I have never in my life been scared of walking alone at night. There isn't a shadow, a stranger, or a threat that has evoked in me a fear during those blessed nocturnal hues. I've found walking alone at night it is I who tend to frighten the unsuspecting I come across. People...

    Can't Remember A Time When I Wasn't Afraid

    I remember when I was a kid I went to a summer camp and me and some kids were walking back to our cabin in the dark, and a few of them had flashlights, and I was all like, I don't need one, I can see where I'm going! I ran ahead of them in the dark and would've missed the turn...

    I Love To Walk At Night

    Even in colder weather I prefer to walk at night. Especially when the stars are bright. I am alert and careful, but never scared. It's very peaceful to me. There have been many times on the weekend when I can't sleep and have been out running at 2 or 3 AM with a heavy wine buzz...

    I have never felt afraid to walk at night by myself. Funny enough, it's always been when I walk at daytime that I have ever been harassed or bothered, because there are people around! I have been practicing Aikido martial arts for about 2 years now - so when I walk, I always...

    I was never afraid to walk alone at night. I've always been at peace when walking at all hours of the night. I would do so until the next morning in fact. That's how I lost so much weight each summer. But I have always enjoyed the moonlight. It felt as though the moon was the...
