It's a little lonely being a night owl
I'm a night owl. A major night owl. It is now 4 a.m. EST and I am raring to go. I know I have to sleep at some point but my energy is high now.
I will go to bed around 5 a.m., wake up about 11 a.m. and hate every minute of the day. I barely do anything unless I HAVE to and I drag around miserable and weary. Then night time comes and I up and at 'em!
But no one else is with me. Sure, there are people from other countries who are up as it is their next day. I have a friend from England who is five hours ahead of me and we often catch each other before I go to bed and when he wakes up.
But no one is writing, no one is chatting, no one is around because they are sleeping like normal human beings! I have tried over and over to change my sleeping schedule and failed. Even when I went to bed early, I just laid there completely awake thinking of all the cool things I was going to do when I woke up. Then I fell asleep and woke up not wanting to even THINK about those cool things I was sure I would do in the morning.
Oh well. Loneliness has its advantages. I have no one to distract me as I work and I can listen to my music (with headphones on of course) and just do what I do without the phone ringing, people knocking on the door, or even traffic outside. My tattoo pictured above (which has since been touched up and changed some) that I got two years ago is a testament to how much I love being a night owl. It says Tranquil Night under it. I wanted it to say "Night owl on the prowl" but that would have taken up my whole arm! It was a totally unplanned tattoo,my first one ever. But I love it and have four more and one more to go. All say different things about me.
Ha! I am not alone after all.
My little Yorkie Molly just came running down the stairs barking like crazy. I'll turn her into a night owl soon enough!
Are you an early bird or a night owl?
