I Stay Up Ridiculously Late, Doing Absolutely Nothing

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,075 People

    I don't understand why I stay up

    so late when I'm not actually doing nothing! I'm not watching anything, or reading, listening to music, chatting to friends etc... Nothing! My mind refuses to switch off... It wants a purpose! So I try and read but it doesn't like that either! I'll just stare at my ceiling...

    I like to talk to myself

    and my own problems out loud because let's face it, no one really wants to listen. It's boring and makes me look self-centered. Most of the time, i would rather be alone than with all these critics.

    when my boyfriend is away I don't sleep I stay up playing games on my tablet and watching Netflix till like 4 or 5 in the morning. I feel really unhealthy. Should I? Is it weird that I sleep best early mornings and is it weird that when my boyfriend is back and sleeping in the...

    I swear to God, it's ridiculous.

    Probably Why I'm On Here And Not In Bed

    I don't sleep well, I wake up all hours of the night. This is why I'm on here tonight. I heard about this site through a friend. I thought it would be better to write then to be up all night just staring off in space (even if no one reads this or cares). It's just nice to feel...

    Sshhh, Don'T Tell My Parents!

    I found a picture online and it related to my life so much and made me laugh: "When I say 'I'm going to bed,' it really means I'll lie on my bed for hours on my phone." I'll play my silly but fun games on my iPod until midnight then really go to bed. Or I'll watch a bunch of...

    I noticed that I have my best ideas at midnight

    and it's often some ridiculous idea to change my life like, another bad diet idea or how to get her to like me. But of course, since I'm tired as ****, nothing actually happens. Sometimes, only sometimes, does stuff actually happen. I actually got the bright idea to join EP, at...

    There is nothing remotely interesting about my

    ceiling but when I'm supposed to be asleep it's just so ... intriguing. At least I tell myself that.

    There are numerous occasions I have just stayed

    up laying in my bed staring at the ceiling. There was probably something on my mind but all I was doing was staring at nothing :P Maybe it is relaxing? I don't know

    Wow, bunch of childish remarks.

    .. Staying up late (doing nothing) is a terrible habit. Your ruining your circadian rhythm, if you don't know what that means... Just keep doing whatever ur doing late night, mindless toolbags.

    I always stay up until 4 maybe 5 AM.

    I just never realize that its late. sometimes I'll draw. sometimes I'll write. or may just stay up watching Grav3yardgirl on YouTube. I always regret it in the morning,but I never do anything about it. My sleep schedule is all **** up now because of it. I also get this thing...

    I've always made a habit of staying up late

    and have never understood why. I seem to like when everyone else is asleep and it's quiet and peaceful in the house. Must be psychological too since the internet, TV and books all seem to get more interesting the later it gets. Similar to a feeling you get when forced to study...

    It's like my mind races through the night.

    Thinking about my day, my past, my future, running scenes through my head of things that should've happend in my life or just thinking about all things I wish I had. It's like a peaceful time, quiet and no one bothers you. I could be awake till 2 in the morning just playing...

    I stay up late because there is no point in going to bed early as there is nothing to do when you are in bed.
