Severe

I am a severe night hawk, which I'm sure I've mentioned before and if you know me you are putting a fake surprised look on your face and sarcastically oozing 'really??'. I am well aware of this fact. What I have been ignorant to is just how much life I miss out on. A lot of night hawks end up staying up too late and then they are sleepy when they arise the next morning. My hawkishness is so severe that I do not do anything I do not absolutely have to do as long as the sun is up, then as soon as the sun goes down I am the accomplishment queen. Not good. So not good by any standards. Today I had a Get Together at 1:30ish. I didn't even get out of bed until 9:00, not an early day in anyone's book. But here I was actually perturbed that I had to do something during the day. I was excited for the event, don't get me wrong, but I kept on thinking to myself, 'why didn't I schedule this at night?'. The answer dear Amanda is because no one would have come as they are all SANE. I got myself together while Nick took Belle to swimming lessons and headed out the door. The day is beautiful. It's sunshiney, the air smells fresh, it's actually nice to not be sitting on my couch right now. I need to learn to live when it's daytime and normal people do stuff.

Oh if only life could be lived as in College, when everything good happened late at night in the dorms. We nighthawks have to stick together. And don't worry 9:00 is not too late to get up at all.

I can't even imagine. Once the streetlights come on at night I'm useless.

I am so NOT a nighthawk. I like to be in bed by 9 or 9:30 :)

Hey big sis,

I hear ya on the night-hawk-ness lol. I don't getting up in the mornings, and I enjoy staying up late way to much. I feel like if I'm in bed before 11 I'm wasting time...which really doesn't make sense lol. It really sux when you have to catch a bus at 6:55am HAHA. If you figure out how to reverse this love of the night, be sure to let me know.

You both must have inherited this nighthawkishness from your parents as we both like to stay up at night. But since we both have early morning jobs, the nights are not so appealing in our old age (HAHAHA)!

Maybe you'll outgrow it!
