I was reading something last evening in which someone had made the comment “Carpe Diem”. Personally, I’m not a morning person. I don’t wake up ’til sometime around noon, regardless of whether or not my body is up and moving before then. It doesn’t matter how early i go to bed the night before, or how many hours of sleep I get. I am a nocturnal being. Always have been, always will be. Sure, I go through the motions, because I don’t have much of a choice. If I could have my way, however, mornings wouldn’t start until 2pm, “noon” would be somewhere between 7-9 pm, and midnight would be around 5am. Most everything I enjoy doing, I prefer doing AFTER the sun has gone down.
When I was young, I made my parents crazy when my laughter over some 3am tv show woke them up, knowing I had to be at school a few hours later. Now that I’m older, I hate mornings even more, and wish I could have an caffeinated IV drip that would start working about an hour before time for me to get up. (Especially beneficial on those horrid days when I have early classes and they begin with algebra, calculus, etc….)
Oh wait!…. I had to drop college algebra… due to the fact that my brain simply can’t wrap itself around quadratic expressions at 8 o’clock in the morning.
And as for the IV drip… I have to have a cup of coffee before I go to BED…. so how the hell would THAT make a difference?
I’m still a horrible insomniac. My brain never shuts off, no matter how physically tired I am. Maybe that’s why I’m a CIT major…. always processing…. but who knows….
For those of you who prefer Starlight to sunlight, who would rather look up at a Sea of Black Velvet covered in Diamonds instead of blue “nothing” and cotton balls…. I say too you:
