    I hate when you promise yourself

    that you're done staying up late and you're going to get to bed early. Never happens.

    Oh yes... esp since I dropped out of school

    and moved out of the orphanage. Having noone around who tells you to get up at 6 am or 7 am is fun :-) Life is so much better when you start your day at 10 or 11 am!

    So since getting out of the military over 9

    years ago I've had trouble sleeping. I sleep only 4-5 hrs a day, sporadically and I rarely sleep at night. I've had sleep clinics and taken pills, but nothing helps and now that I am going through a divorce I think I've figured out what's going on. I've always had a problem with...

    Despite getting up early,

    being active, studying and drinking a cup of tea I cannot sleep. My favorite movie is Sleeping Beauty but I should be named sleepless "beauty." :(

    Sleeping is just so difficult

    for me sometimes. I always end up getting back on my laptop after rolling around for what seems to be hours and when I do go to sleep its already the next morning....

    My favorite thing to do,

    is to drive around town in the middle of the night when no one is out. It's the most peaceful thing ever.

    The Late Night Hours

    All my life, I've loved staying up late. This goes back to when I was a kid, and we only had the local TV stations, and they signed off at 1 or 2 a.m.. After they played the National Anthem, then just static came on. I just felt the lateness in my gut. I've always had a thing...

    It's a nice relaxing time

    for me. No one awake to tell me what to do just peace and quiet. The moon is nicer.... You can actually look at it:)

    Night is so much more peaceful

    than all the noises in the day.. The darkness.. The quietness.. The cool breeze.. Stars.. Waxing n waning moon.. An occasional bark of a dog somewhere.. Everyone else sleeping.. And the time for some contemplation.. I stay up late, not coz sleep is miles away, but I like the...

    and extremely late nights. I don't know what it is, but when In a village, everything silent and dark, and starry and cold is just so beautiful. If I had enough energy I would go to bed so late, and get up so early so I can love and admire both morning and night because both...

    Most nights I am up into the wee hours of the

    morning (like 4, 5, sometimes like 9am, but always until at least 1 or 2). I have a hard time in the sunlight since I burn so easy (that and I am a natural night owl anyway). I also have a hard time turning my brain off; I feel like the only way I fall asleep is to just keep...

    I have a ridiculous sleeping pattern.

    I'll often stay up till around 2-3am on days off, and then I won't rouse till near lunch time or after. It's definitely one of my worst vices and looks like I'm very lazy but it's common sense that if I only went to bed earlier I'd then be up earlier! It doesn't help that I'm a...
