Are you an early bird or a night owl?

Well, it's 30 minutes after midnight and I am wide awake. I've always loved staying up late and never have liked waking up before noon. Now that we have kids, that's impossible and in about 20 years, when they are out of the house, I'll be programmed to getting up early (earlier than noon anyway).

There's just something about the night that I love. The quiet. It's hard to put my finger on it, but I feel like I can draw my inspirations from the night. My best writings are at night and choreography comes easy to me after the commotion of the day has passed.

And the rest of you?

That being said, I'd better get my butt to bed.

Early(ish) I`m up at about 6am, and often in bed for 10pm.

I like to go to bed about 10 and get up about 6, but I'm having a sleeping problem again so I'm up all times of the night and drowsy during the day. I hate to take sleeping pills, but I suppose I will have to do so. I need rest asap.

Night owl since birth. I was up all night and slept all day.
Even now it's rare that I'm asleep before 2:00 a.m.

There are some times that I am up late but most times I end up waking for no reason anywhere from midnight on. Most times I am up by 5 a.m. and end up with really bad headaches if I sleep past 6.

I have always been a morning person, up between 5-6am, which means eary bedtime. Love seeing the day come alive, beginning with the sunrise.

night owl here..

Husband works from 3pm to whenever for his programming position so I stay with his position's hours. Since we don't have kids (just 4-legged critters) I can stay with his schedule and not have an issue. When the Masters program kicks up in Jan it'll be easy for me since classes will be at night.

That's my schedule.

Early, early bird. I'm up at 5am, and I need all the beauty sleep I can get.

I only sleep for 4 to 5 hours a night. So it's in bed by 1 am and up between 5 and 6. Two of my 5 children also have this problem. They say it's not healthy but what can you do?

I'm both. Love to get up early and get stuff done, 30 nap about 3 in the afternoon and I'm good to go 'til the wee hours of the morning. That's usually when I read. Family's in bed and the house feels cozy.
