I 'd Like To Be Active At Night

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,435 People

    I used to do third shift security

    and ever since I've been a night owl. I wake up at around 1pm and go to bed around 7am. I love the night. The dark is like a giant comforter. I can't stand the sun. I used to drive home from work laughing at the worker bees headed to work as the sunrises and I'm headed home...

    I don't know it's something about night

    that makes me.....energized. The fact that no one can see me that I can do whatever I want that I can be the mister in the dark. I can hide when someone is looking for me and they are a yard away and they don't know I'm there. I feel like a predator at night even more in the...

    People ask me why I like to do everything at

    night, and I tell them "Because of you". Lol. Because they will be asleep at night when I can do everything I like the way it is. Not being bothered and interfered by people. At night, it feels like time has come to a standstill. It isn't really, but that's what it feels like...

    I feel more inspired

    and alert in the night so I get more done when it comes to creative projects of any kind. I enjoy working in the night.

    Not only do I prefer working night shifts,

    I function better at night. Less traffic, less noise at night too. I can't stand chirpy people in the morning either. Give me a middle shift or night shift and I'll be happy. My best writing happens at night too when all is quiet outside. I guess I feel at peace at night and...

    My favourite time to exercise is at night.

    Usually I'll go for a run at 5 am and 9 or 10 pm. It gives me time to think and reflect. I also get to have some fun since most people are inside.

    I feel so alive running in the dark with my

    running partner. The air is cool but not cold and the city becomes a glowing jewel. We would do short sprints and walk a bit in between for ten miles by small lakes and around campus.

    I would be, but I always wake up

    so early (its 6am now and I've been online for an hour) because I can't relax just lying in bed, so I would get so tired if I stayed up at night!
