I Am Not A Morning Person

I dislike mornings with all the bright light streaming into the bedroom windows hurting my eyes. I know I have many things to do but I just don't want to move but rather turn over and cover my head up and stay there until night falls. I have always been this way. The day is so noisy with people running around and all of the traffic but the night, oh the night. The quietness like a black soothing cloak that covers you and lulls you into a sense of peace and comfort. I would have made a wonderful vampire. I love to sleep during the day and then stay up all night. I feel more alive at night than during the day when I feel like I'm dragging myself around. I get much more things done and think clearer during the night time hours.

I have always been a night person myself. As a kid, my brother would get so frustrated with me cuz I wouldn't get out of bed in the early morn. My mom would make him wait for me& he liked to get to school 30 minutes before it started. I have worked the night shift for 20 years now & I love it! I can do my job efficiently without interference from management & all their stupid games. I also sleep soundly during the day. On my days off, I toss & turn during the night & usually end up getting up during the night & going back to bed around 6 am. I think some of us are just born to be night people & no matter how we try to adapt to being morning people, it never feels right.

Yes, I am and always will be a night person. It's just who I am I guess.

I don't have this problem because I have to get up when it is still dark to go to work. Even after so many years it still feels unnatural to get up before the sun does. When I'm on holiday and can sleep in until I wake naturally I feel so much better, even though I probably sleep the same number of hours.

When I was still working I went to work in the dark and came home in the dark. It is Heaven to be able to sleep in and stay up late whenever I feel like it.
