Night Owl

I've always been a night owl. At least as long as I can remember. I never really thought about it much until a year or so ago. I guess when you get older you start thinking about things differently. I remember when I was little, I had friends who knew that I was scared of monsters and ghosts and stuff because I wasn't really exposed to them. They would shove me in the bathroom at school, turn the light out and chant "Bloody Mary". They would tell me that it wasn't the current in a local lake that caused people to drown, but that it was built on an Indian burial ground and the souls of the angry dead were pulling people under the water to their deaths. My favorite was when my best friend told me not to have any part of my body hanging off the bed at midnight or Freddy Krueger would grab me and pull me to Hell. Ha! Kids can be cruel, but at least I can laugh about it now. I actually think it made me a stronger person in the long run.

Anywho, the fact that I was stiff as a board in the dead center of my bed and couldn't sleep soundly until I knew that it was after midnight may have affected my biological clock to be more alert at night. I am an absolute zombie when I wake up in the morning. I basically have the exact same routine every morning and have learned to do it subconsciously. I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but when I do drink it in the early morning it doesn't phase me one bit. Night time is the best time to write in my opinion anyway. The world is still and peaceful, unless it's tornado season. :) I am pretty sure I will be a night owl for the rest of my life.
