Anyone else? Probably everyone here. lol. I can't sleep. I have to force myself to go to bed most nights. I think i'm like a little kid, afraid i'm going to miss something if i fall asleep lol. I can sleep away the day no problem but as soon as the night is here I have to be awake. Maybe it's all the Java I drink. But I can't give that up either I'm an addict. Anyone else here the same way? Maybe i'm a vampire.

I am. My sleep schedule is swapped right now. So I sleep during the day and I'm busily working on things at night. It used to be okay, but now I find that it kind of isolates me in many ways. I'm kind of used to it though. I do like the peace that I get at night when no one's awake.

I love the peace at night I think that is why I don't go to bed. I get no quiet time during the day at all.

I am a night owl but only because I work the night shift. On the nights that I work I am up till about 6am, then I go to bed and sleep till around 1:30pm or so. On my days off I tend to stay up till 1am so I guess that's a little bit of a night owl still. :o) I have blackout shades in my room and I think people wonder if *I'm* a vampire when they walk into it!

I am most definitely a night owl,and it is awesome to find out that someone else out there is,and I usually have to force myself to go to bed at night if I have to get up early,and then I lie awake for hours trying to sleep,and I also can sleep away the day with no problems,and I feel that I can be more active,and get more done during the night hours,and most of the time me and my fiance stay on a third shift schedule so we can stay up all night,and sleep all day.

Before my husband went back to working days, I was probably the biggest night owl a person would meet..lol! Would be up from one in the afternoon until five in the morning the following day. Though now that my husband has gone back to days, I've sort of followed suit. I still have times where I stay up all night, but that is only if I have gotten behind in my work. I do sometimes miss staying up all night every night, but have noticed with the change in schedule I feel a little more enthusiastic about getting things done and keeping the house cleaned...lol!
