I Prefer Night Over Day

    Sometimes, I could not help it

    if this is my given work schedule. There were also instances where I would stay up working on my hobby (crafting, beading, scrapbooking, etc), reading a hard-to-put-down novel, or doing online writing (I was active on Bubblews), or doing a movie marathon. I have been missing...

    and at the same time relaxed at night than during the day.

    There's something about the peace

    and serenity night brings, it's just so much better than day. I feel much more at home in the cool night than the hot day.

    Night is just so chill.

    ..the stars above shining down, the moon influencing the dogs. Everything is just so quiet, except for the occasional chirp of a cricket or the bark of a dog...the wind softly howling in the silence. At day people are awake and I don't like people so I stay locked up in my room...

    I like the night time over day

    Night-owl

    "Don't go to sleep the same day you woke up." are words I LIVED by in college. And still, a few years later I'm doing good lol. I don't think I go to sleep very often before midnight and I love being up. It's just so pretty at night, especially when there is no noise pollution...

    It Sure Is True

    So what? It doesn't hurt anybody. I like to get up at midnight, watch TV, stay up til 6:30 A.M, before the sun rises. Shut the TV off, go to bed, and wake up at midnight. Like when my fall break ends, i'll have to get up at 7:00, shower in cold water (hot water doesn't work...

    Night time is when creativity wakes up.

    Your mind wanders off to the most unimaginable things your thoughts lead to. It's the time where dreams are created to the sweetest detail. And it's the time where we get to not deal with the world for just a little while, leaving us with ourselves and our thoughts.

    Even As A Child I Preferred Night Over Day.

    I use to dream of being rich and owning a jet plane, so I could out run the coming morning. Just a silly child's dream. However since my heart surgery 4x bypass, I find myself lonely and seeking peace in the night again. About a month ago I walked in to my heart Doc's office...

    The Night

    The night is just so lovely and mysterious. I especially love the warm summer nights. I really do wish I sometimes could go take a walk in the night with my hoodie on and explore the neighborhood. The night just has so much intensity. But the night can be dangerous too. But, ah...

    I prefer darkness because my eyes are light,

    and they seem to be very sensitive in sunlight. I love the sun, but it hurts on bright days. Even with sunglasses I can have trouble, so nighttime is when I see rather well, considering. The night sky is the most beautiful thing in this universe, in my 'eyes'.

    Anytime...

    I prefer night over day anyday, anytime. I hate being awake during the day. I Love the nights. I prefer to do all my work at nights, I do my best thinking and my best writing at nights. I Love the nights.

    Calling Of The Dark

    The stillness of the night air The stars, bright in the sky The coolness of the wind against my skin Soft noises in the distance as the silence of the night is broken. A group of voices, the sound of revelry abundant to hear The night is calling to them, as it calls to us The...

    Don't know why many fear the dark.

    When I am in my room in complete darkness and can't even see my silhouette, I feel like I actually am part of the world, I am the dark, the world is the dark, the world is my body. My words become omnipresent... Border lines are no more, there is nothing that suggests I am in...
