So I'm a major night owl. Doesn't matter how insanely tired I am; I can't ever fall asleep before midnight, and with school being out for summer, I've been staying up until 4 AMish - ya know, when it starts getting lighter outside and the roosters start cocka-doodle-doing. It's just natural to me. I do all of my good thinking at night. So my schedule now is go to sleep at 4 AM, and wake up between 2 and 3 PM. And I feel wonderful. That reminds me of how MISERABLE I am during the school year. To catch the bus, I have to wake up no later than 6 AM. I get home at 5:30, then have many many hours of homework. I'm miserable and tired all day until about midnight, when I can't fall asleep because I have a sudden burst of energy (this is without any caffeine whatsoever). So yea pretty much, to sum it up, I only get a few hours of sleep per night during the school year, and it's all just complete cycle of misery just because school starts soooooooo early. I just was thinking of how amazing life would be if school (and for later in my life, the work day) started in the afternoon. And adults seem to never understand - they always say "well, it's your fault for not going to sleep earlier." What's your view on this? Any night-owls figure out a solution to the problem of living in a morning-bird society?
