    Night owl!  I much rather stay up late to get stuff done than wake up early to do it.

    @Sea_Ashley:  Im a mid day person.  I like you am 26, married, no kids and hate getting up in the morning AND its so hard for me to stay awake past 10!  It actually makes me feel crazy for thinking I could handle you children cause then I would get less sleep!!!

    I’ve always been a night owl and most likely always will be. I despise getting up in the morning. I need a job from like 3 pm to 11 pm.

    Early bird — Darling Husband and I both get up at 4 for work.  We’re in bed around 9… everyone makes fun of us, all the time.

    Total night owl aha! I get it from my dad, I think. He can’t sleep until midnight (at least). I tend to fall asleep between 11:30 and 12am. I usually wake up at 8am, which seems early, but I usually physically can’t sleep in past 8:30 am anyways. Luckily my Fiance doesn’t have to be at work until 8:30 or 9 (depending on the day) and we live like a 4 minute drive from his workplace so we can both sleep longer.

    @Sea_Ashley:  I like to go to bed early and wake up early if it’s on my own time.

    I hate getting up for work in the morning. 

    On the weekends, I’m in bed by 11 and up around 8. But during the week, if I go to bed at 9 and wake up at 6, I just don’t feel as rested even though I’ve gotten the same amount of sleep as I did on the weekend. 

    I definitely get more done in the mornings than I do at night.

    @Sea_Ashley:  I really really wish I were a morning person!!! I feel like I could be so much more productive. I HATE the mornings. When I was in college my peak productivity hours were 9pm and 2am. I was useless until 11am or noon and still had a 3-5pm slump :p Now that I’ve started working full time I can’t stay up past midnight. So right now I’m in flux, I’m not an anytime person :p Hopefully that’ll change soon!!

    @Sea_Ashley:  I’m a little of both! I hate sleeping. I’m most productive at night. I stay up untill about 3am and wake up around 9am. I just like being awake and not wasting my life sleeping. I think it’s because I have a lot of anxiety issues and missing out on something (sleeping through it) make me feel nauseous so I’d rather just not sleep . I can’t even take naps lol .

    I hate mornings.  HATE.  With a white-hot, unbridled passion.  I naturally wake up sometime between 11am and 1pm no matter what time I go to sleep.  I literally dread mornings because I know I’ll have to get out of bed.  And the earliest I ever have to be at work is 9am with an 8-minute commute!!!  

    You bees who get up at 4 and 5am – how on earth do you do it?  It makes me physically sick to get up that early!

    I voted somewhere in between because lately, I’m neither.  I’ve always been a night owl, but Mr. S is a huge morning person.  He’s so sweet because he gets up and makes me coffee and then wakes me up and leaves me alone until I drink it.  Apparently, I’m quite grouchy otherwise, haha.  I’ve gotten used to getting up early, but that hasn’t made it any easier or more pleasant for me, but I can no longer stay up late now either.  I’m only 26, but I feel like a senior!  Typically, I wake up at 6:45 everyday to be at work at 8:30 and go to bed around 10 (although it could be anywhere from 9:30-11:30 some nights).  I need lots of sleep!!

    Sea_Ashley:  I think I am sort of in between. I used to fall asleep at like 9pm and wake at 6pm, but due to working until 8-9pm most nights I will go to bed around 11pm and wake at 7am. I love going out late at night and can usually do this several nights in a row until I need a huge nap lol. I do however go to bed early in winter and sleep in for ages when I can 😉

    I have trouble staying up past 10 or 11, but it’s not like I pop out of bed at 5 either. I think my ideal sleep schedule would be 10:30-7. 

    Getting up at 6 on weekday mornings is often hard, but once I’m up I’m up. I rarely sleep past 7:30 on Saturdays.

    Early bird, for sure.

    I cannot stay up past like… 9:30. That’s REALLY a push for me.

    I’m up every morning at 5:30am though. I usually don’t have much of an issue getting out of bed. If I sleep past like.. 8:00 I feel like my day is wasted. I’m most productive in the morning.
