As you know, my spring break is currently coming to an end, a a harsh truth I’m not quite ready to accept. But as it goes, over the break I did a lot of reading and looking through various books, etc, etc. It seems that people always make a case for the morning. I’m sure you’ve heard the quote “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” My parents used to tell me that when I was younger and they were trying to get me into bed earlier rather than later. But over the years I have somehow been transformed into a night owl. And while I realize that waking up early is great and healthy and whatever there is a certain je ne sais quoi to the nighttime I’d like to bring up. Since I love lists I suppose I’ll just put this in list form.
Things I Love About Night Time
the fact that for some reason the best talks always happen late at night and usually in the dark
tiptoeing around and feeling quite stealthy
peace and quiet–the loud music subsides, the trains and traffic cease, and the chatter dies down
bonding over hard psets
the fact that if you stay up late/early enough you feel like the only person in the world
stars and the moon
it’s more acceptable to wear heels
have you ever read that book goodnight moon? where the whole world goes to sleep? The night time is just really relaxing to me
being able to say the night is young
the fact that we’re night owls and morning people don’t really get an animal name….other than just morning people
being nocturnal is in adventure in itself
everything feels sparkly and magical
Anyway, I probably enjoy the night time because none of my classes start before noon, tehehe. So I suppose I’ll remain a night owl for my collegiate years while I’m still young and then perhaps I’ll shift to being a morning person.
Loads of love and sweet dreams,
