night owl syndrome

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Good grief, I'm up to all hours again. Brutal. I just love staying up late!!!! The house is quiet. I have time to myself. I'm working part-time until April, so I have some days when I don't have to be up at the crack of dawn. So, I totally take advantage.
Wierd thing is my internal clock HATES going to bed early. Always has. When I was a kid I used to get into trouble from my parents all the time for reading too late.
Anyone else a natural night owl? Or am I a mutant???

I am a natural night owl I can never fall asleep early its already 5 am here and I am not tired although I should be sleeping, I did set an alarm clock tho for 10 because I wanna order something from a site adn my mom told me to go ahead and find the book well i found it and theres only 4 left and I just dont wanna order it without her official permission it is her credit card and I dont wanna do that all I was hoping this would be anight were shed wake up but it didnt work tonite, she only wakes up on nights i dont need her

But I was on a good schedule sleep at 130-2 am to 10 am or evern earlier than that id wake up and now once again i am back at my old schedule...always been a night owl and to be honest I hate it well when its this late adn i am still up and not even tired

Totally know how you feel. For me going to bed at 1:00am is early! It's so easy to fall back to the 5am routine. I've been like this for 20 yrs. My mom is sort-of the same. She stays awake in bed watching all those late late night talk shows. When I lived at home, I used to watch them with her!

I had a wierd experience in Africa this summer, where I was working. For whatever reason, I would habitually be ready for sleep before 11pm!!!! Miracle!!! I was normal, all of a sudden. I wondered if this was because I was right on the equater and it was a 12hr sunlight, 12hr dark schedule all the time.

*yawn* Look at the time and the time zones we live in and the time we are now posting. I think you have other night owls out there with you!!

If I were to go to bed at my a normal time, my body tells me I should live in Hawaii, which is 4 hours behind my time zone. If only I would listen to my body more!

I am so not a night owl..I have to get up at 5:10am when I am working so my body just sticks to the early to bed (10:30pm) routine most of the time..Since I have been off of work for the past 5 weeks I have been staying up till around 11:30pm but then my body just gives up..

Usually when I'm up, I'm on the computer..where else, here

Whoooooooo wooooooooooooo. Another night owl. If I slept according to my normal body rhythm, I'd go to bed around 2-3AM and wake at 10AM. But since I have to pay some bills every month, I'm in bed by 11PM and awake at 6AM. Can you say GRUMPY MORNING?

Once again, I'm up at an insane time. It's Saturday night and we chose to have a quiet night in drinking tea and perrier, watching a movie. That part went well until BF went to sleep. Here I am staying up on the computer!!!!! Why did I not go to bed at a normal hour with him!!!!! I'm such a night owl, it's crazy. I think I just enjoy the peace and quiet when it's late and dark out.

I am a night owl too!

During the school year....I'm made to awake at 5:30am and I normally hit the sack at about 11:00pm or so.

During the summer, I stay up until about 2 or 3 am sometimes all night and then get up at 11 or 12. I LOVE it.
