i'm a night person

i hate the morning.

hate.it.

but i love the night time. (the night time is the right time, rahr) it's true. and i think you're either one or the other... (unless you're my husband, then you're whatever your work schedule is) i've always been a night person.

i find myself inspired at night. i get so many ideas, thoughts, things i want to do, things i want to write, all sorts of things happen in my mind at night. there are times i have to literally force myself to stay in bed and try to sleep, when all i want to do is get up and fix shit around the house... or grab the computer and start typing.

i'm a weirdo, i know.

but i'm not tired at night. and i love to stay up late.


it's like the nighttime is my magic time. it's when i come alive. when my mind and brain are inspired. i think we all have our moments, or our times of day when we feel the most inspired. or the most motivated. for me, that's night. late at night. maybe it's because the rest of the house is quiet and calm? maybe it's because the world around me is quiet and calm? i don't know..

which one are you?

Night! For sure.

VERY early morning again when everything is quiet and the sun comes up with all the morning smells and the birth of a new day. The birds, the animals out looking for food in the dawn. I love to sit with my computer on the front porch and compose with my coffee. My mother used to say "God only gives us so many sunrises. Wouldn't want to miss one" I agree.

I'm a morning person. If I sleep too late, I feel like half the day is gone and that makes me grouchy. :)

Morning... unless I am in the midst of a coding project then I am a so early it might still be late person (I have this tendency to wake up at 3am with an idea, and start to write code).

I've never been a night person to begin with, and now I am slowly morphing into an "early bird dinner senior citizen" sort of early to bed person.

I'm a night person BUT I have to get up at 6 every day to get my son off to school. It's killing my nights!

I love the night, but I hate sleeping in - counter productive... I think so.

I am a night owl. I love staying up late and I absolutely hate mornings.

I am a total night owl! Even after having kids. Good thing the hubs is morning person so that he can get up early with them.

I used to be a night person and could stay up late and hating waking in the mornings, but somewhere in my 20's that changed and now I'm totally a morning person and even find myself counting down the hours/minutes in the evening until I can justify going to bed. Of course, that part may be from the lack of sleep generated by my new little girl :)
