Insomnia...not fun. Rather annoying actually. Meh I'll live
Hmmm, I like the list as it is, and the list style, so I'll try and add to it myself....
I just stay awake for as long as I can because I get my writing muse in the middle of the night. There's something about being the only one up that's peaceful and you know you can get things done. Also, I just can't be bothered to go to bed.
I don't know really. I've always had a hard time sleeping since I was a child. My brain doesn't seem to want to shut down. And I don't need to sleep as much as most people, it seems. So what happens is my sleeping pattern starts to become later and later and eventually I'm sleeping in until mid-afternoon - in the summer, at least.
I've been able to do a lot of things later in the night than in the day. And the internet is quite addicting.
I just don't see much point to going to bed early when I don't have to... there is SO many other things I could be doing!!!! Why sleep? I regret it during school but usually I just appreciate the time I spend at night working or doing this stuff =P
My melatonin secretion doesn't start until ~1:00am. apart from that, Nighttime is far quieter and cooler than daytime. Its darker, daylight is far too bright, even on cloudy days I wear sunglasses to reduce the brightness (I seem to be sensitive to light, as it hurts my eyes.).
I'm nocturnal because I work graveyards at a hotel, though I was never terribly inclined to follow a solar pattern to begin with (when I had an unstructured sleeping schedule, I'd fall asleep slightly before/at the crack of dawn and wake up in the mid-afternoon). So I guess it's a question of chicken and egg.
I think I'm nocturnal because I don't need much sleep ( I know it's not good for me, since I have not finished developing ), I just need approximately 6 hours of sleep per day, or less. But the only real reason that I stay up is because I can sit at my computer and be so relaxed. Also I prefer the dark. And there is a thing I find very weird about me, I sweat extremely much. Wether it is about physical work or just being in the sunlight I start to sweat alot. I kinda like it though 'cause it gives me a reason to be in the shade (or inside)
Usually I stay up late because my brain doesn't like to shut down at night. When I try to go to bed my thoughts start to race faster than they do at any other time. Basically, I start to scrutinize every aspect of my life whenever I try to sleep which keeps me from actually sleeping.
