Which are you – a Morning Bird or a Night Owl?
Do you roll out of bed in the morning rip roaring and ready to go? Or do you stumble eyes shut to the coffee pot growling at anyone in your way?
Are you in bed before the sun goes down? Or do you burn the midnight oil?
If you asked me just a little more than three years ago, I wouldn’t even hesitate to tell you that i am a true night owl. However, since my pregnancy with my youngest, it seems to be a bit fuzzy. I remember in college I could easily pull all nighters studying for an exam or working on a large project or paper. Even after having my first three children I could easily work in the studio until 3 or 4 in the morning and still function the next day. But lately? Not so much.
Does that make me a morning person? GOOD HEAVEN’S NO! Even when I make it to bed at a decent hour (11:00 pm or midnight even) I am still a zombie in the morning. Just before leaving Washington, I was meeting a friend of mine at the gym at 5:30 am every day. It was so hard, but I loved it because it gave me a lot of really good energy for the rest of the day. Of course, I would be in bed by 9:30 or 10:00 pm. That is just unheard of for me. With school out for the summer, you will be hard pressed to find me out of bed earlier than 7:00 am, most days 8:00. LOL. I love that I don’t HAVE to go in to a full time job anymore. Of course, that opens a whole new can of worms for me.
I miss being able to stay awake at night. My most creative time tends to be between the hours of 9 pm and 4 am. Perhaps in the fall, when the kids return to school and Kiari starts full time pre-school, I will be able to get back into the schedule, or at least learn to be creative during the day light hours.
So what about you? Are you a Morning Person or a Night Owl?
The Artists Synchroblog is a group of bloggers who post on the same topic on odd months and on even months we take on a Pinterest Challenge where we each take inspiration from a Pinterest picture, creating something (art, a meal, a DIY project, etc) and then posting about it.
