NaBloPoMo prompt: Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Well, as evidenced by yesterday's post, I'm definitely a night owl. Apparently I've always been that way; my parents have stories of me as a toddler, staying up and watching late night TV with my date because I wouldn't go to sleep. My favorite time at the end of each school year was asking my parents what my later bedtime was for the summer.
It's interesting, because my parents are the opposite, going to bed around 9 or 9:30. For a long time, I viewed that not as part of their personalities, but as part of being an "adult". Adults go to bed early and get up early. I felt like staying up until midnight and not going into work until 9 am meant that I wasn't acting mature or responsible. There are still times when some aspects of life might be easier if I could get on a different schedule, but really, this is what comes naturally, and I'm learning to accept that there's nothing wrong with that.
