    *hoot hoot* night owl… DH works over night so me (& our dogs!) got used to his schedule. I’m more productive in the wee hours of the night when there’s nothing else to do.

    oneofthesethings:  I am with you. I also detest getting up early, as it makes me physically sick! I get terrible heart palpatations and nausea if I get less than 8-9hrs of sleep. I find it impossible to fall asleep before 3am. So, if I have to get up early for an appt. of some sort a nap is in order pronto afterwards or else I feel like I’m going to die. I have been this way since I was a child. My mum said I would never go to bed early starting at infant age, all through grammer school years, college etc. I took all the night classes I could and suffered through the rest of the time. When I’ve had 9-5 jobs I took benedryl just to sleep by 1am to get up for work. My natural pattern, when I am most at ease, feel healthy + happy is when I am allowed to be nocturnal. I’ve set up my life around night work when it was possible, but the world is a morning world for sure and I’ve always gone against the grain. It’s nice to see I’m not the only one. I work very hard into the wee hours while the rest of the world sleeps, as my most inspired and alert periods are after dark!

    Morning person, I am often out of bed at 5am and love it.
