Tales of a Writer in a Hotel Room – Musings of a Nightowl
I am going to keep it short today. I have a good amount of work to do, including a couple of much delayed items.
I find that I’m not a morning person. Even when I get up in the morning, I don’t feel awake enough to do much of anything until after 12. Not sure why this is. Is it because I’ve worked mostly graveyard and late night shifts my whole life? Could be, but I also was this way as a kid. Just ask any of my relatives, I’ve never been a morning person. Maybe it is how I was raised.
I remember staying up as late as I could as a child. When other children had bedtimes of 7 or 8, my brother and I routinely went to bed around 10 or 11. Part of this is because my mom often worked late, but also because the various babysitters we had wouldn’t enforce any strict ‘bed’ time. I often would sleep for six or so hours before getting up and going to school. That was normal for my childhood.
I’ve tried changing to a ‘normal’ schedule over the years but it never seems to stick. Ah well, I just need to learn to stop fighting and learn to love my nocturnal nature.
Until next time, dream good dreams.
