Last week our Chrystall wrote an article on being a morning person and the benefits of being a morning person. I, on the other hand, am the total opposite: I'm a night person. I find that I can function better at night and I'm totally nicer. I don't know how and why but I just seem to have a burst of energy in the evenings as opposed to being groggy first thing in the morning. It's so serious that my mom calls me a vampire.
She just doesn't understand that I prefer to do things at night when the place is quiet to do what I have to. I go to work daily and at the end of the day I'm ready to go home to relax but yet when I reach home – apart from mommy duties – I find myself doing all kinds of little things that would never occur to me earlier in the day.
Being a night person has its perks. At nights you have the peace to move about without any disturbance or minimal as possible. Being a mom, nights are also the time when the kids go to bed and I can get whatever I have to do done. When those tiny feet are up and running about, it's quite hard to get house chores or anything else done seeing that a pair belongs to my soon-to-be two-year-old. She gets into everything. As fast as you can tidy a spot she messes it right back up, or she demands so much attention that you can't help but to obey her command.
Also at night, once everyone else in your home is sleeping, you can move about freely – making the minimum noise, of course – without anyone getting in your way. I have a little graphic/web design business and it's much easier to work on client projects when the house is quiet. I'm also taking classes so the evening peace is a time when I can study.
What type of person are you? Are you morning person like Chrystall or have all the energy at nights like I do?
