I probably used to be a night owl, but I've started getting up much earlier due to work reasons lately and have realised just how much you can get done in those hours I used to lie in bed. I now get up earlier every day and save the evening for unwinding and relaxing (and going to bed earlier!)
I always get up early. I tend to get up at 5am, sometimes earlier if I have a busy day ahead. I used to go to bed early too, but it is gradually becoming later. Half 10 to 11pm is still considered pretty early to most people though.
A bit of both. It depends on what is happening in my life at the time. I must admit that, as age takes its toll, I find it very difficult to stay up late for social occasions, but if it's a case of tapping out a few articles for Weekend Notes or communicating through Facebook, I'm up late with the best of them.
I have always been a night owl who dreams of the morning. Unfortunately mornings have never agreed with me. I love the morning sun, and sunlight for that matter but it never seems to make a difference. I find it hard to sleep at night and even harder to stay awake during the day. Oh well, it's the night owl life for me.
Given the choice I prefer to stay up later and get up later. I have small children so that's not really possible now. That being said, my kids probably go to bed later than some other kids their age since we don't have a strict bedtime, just put them to bed when they're tired, and some days they will sleep in until around 8am if we don't have somewhere we need to be.
I would say I am a morning person as I spring out of bed, looking forward to another lovely day :) On the other hand, I am also a night owl. I mean, it is 10:30pm as I am writing this (despite being on a writers retreat and away with loved ones) I am far from tired. That batteries aren't flat yet, despite going at it since 7am this morning.
I used to be able to stay up late, but now it is physically becoming more and more impossible to keep myself awake in the night, even if I want to. I like to wake up early (around 7am), drop the kids off at school and carry on with the day's chores. By 7pm, I feel pooped.
I have been a night owl since I was a baby. In fact my dad moved out of the bedroom (where I used to sleep in my cot), because I would be awake for most of the night playing and talking to myself. My mum still hasn't forgiven me!
I am neither I am more of an afternoon person.. I guess I can't really say I am night person as I don't like to stay up all night. I can stay up latest till 3am but I need my rest and function best during afternoon not really at night. I don't like mornings though I find it hard to get up early..
Definitely a night owl! I rarely get to bed before 11 or 12. I have to be REALLY tired or sick to go to bed before then. I'm a TV addict and am always catching up on TV shows I've missed out on because of stations triple booking shows I like watching on the same night at the same time! I LOVE my TiVo's (I have 2 which are always full of stuff to watch). If I go to bed too early I just toss and turn thinking about what I could be doing instead (like watching TV). I'm definitely NOT a morning person who bounds out of bed ready to face the world, let alone go for a run at 6 am! Ugghh! Mandy E.
I am both, which doesn't work out very well for me. I think I enjoy the serenity each has to offer. I really should get to bed earlier most nights though. I think waking up fresh and early is way more rewarding than staying up late.
I am a little bit of both. I work better at night time on say academics, writing and reading. However, in the mornings I'm more likely to get things done around the house, organise a few things, get my errands done. If I'm not at work, I'll spend the afternoon relaxing a bit or taking a nap.
I used to be a night owl and definitely not a morning person but after moving to a warm humid climate I became a morning person and conked out at night. now back to the colder climate in Australia I'm back again to being a night owl. But working plus study makes you a night owl just trying to squeeze it all in to the day....
When working, a lark. Now a definite Owl!
Oh, to be able to sleep-in, if wanted, is bliss after 45 years' of working full-time!
Go to bed very, very late now, after having watched some of my taped tv shows & 'working' on ITablet, as in doing so now!
I agree donjo. The absolute luxury, the self indulgence of staying up "working" on my computer…knowing that I can get up in the morning at any old hour I choose. After 50 years of working and having to rise early, I now roll over (particularly in winter) and just snuggle down with a smile on my face. Luverly !
