I kinda enjoy staying up late. Because one of the main reason is I can't really wake up early (6-7am ish) without feeling drowsy. I have no problems waking up at 8 or 9am feeling good. But factor in a normal 6 hour sleep pattern, even if I were to wake up at 8am, I should go to bed at 2am.
Now I know 2am is nothing compared to most people out there. I have numerous friends who sleeps at 3,4,5am. Calling myself a night owl takes up the one and only adjectives to describe those sleeping beyond 3am.
But still I like sleeping around 2am or 3am. I can sleep later than that. But for the sake of my biological clock and body's health and wellness, I never push myself to sleep after 2am.
I noticed my brain tends to get active at nights. Actually it also does too during the mornings. But definitely not in the afternoons. Stimulants or interesting stuffs tend to incite me more during the night and morning. So that is when I do my research, or browse for answers to random questions.
I like staying up late for a reason. Doing something that excites you. Like playing piano at night. It gives a really different eerie or perhaps soothing feel, depending on the song you're playing. Never tried that before though, but I really want to do it like continuously every night. Or going through something that requires me to think eg. solving puzzles, riddles.
Perhaps one of the best thing to do staying up late is to talk to someone that matters alot to you. Talking at night really does give a different ambiance and feel. Definitely one of the best feelings in the world that I have ever encountered. Too bad that feeling has been all but lost for a long time ago.
It's not that I am phobic to sleep though. As much as I like the feeling of dozing off and recharging my batteries, I find sleep as a seduction as I always tend to snooze off my alarm and wake up 1 hour later, sleeping beyond my quota.
And I know that my body can't really sustain me in sleeping mood after 10am. Even if I sleep at 6am in the morning, I would wake up before 12pm. Maybe I have a strong affinity to breakfast eh?
So yeah, hopefully I might find something to keep me up the night. It's not because I'm masochistic. Just that I would want to utilize my time more :)
