    Default Early Riser or Night Owl?

    Are you an early riser (likes to wake up early) or a night owl?
    Weathergirl: District 38 is sunny. Slight rock showers this morning. Chance of rock showers into the afternoon—20 percent. District 39 is cloudy. Chance of rock showers this afternoon—10 percent.
    Edward: Bebop here here! Alright woo hoo!
    Weathergirl: Chance of rock showers today upgraded to 90 percent.
    Edward: Really.

    In theory, I like to wake up early as long as I'm not tired. In practice, this really happens. If I'm not being manipulated by schedules, it seems that my sleeping habits always gradually shift toward being later and later, until it gets to a point where in winter I'm going to sleep after sunrise and waking up after sunset.

    It actually bothers me a bit. I don't know why I do that.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    I can rarely get my thoughts in order before midnight whatever else I'm doing. This is pretty unfortunate if I AM doing something else that requires me to get up early...

    Were it possible, I'd never sleep. I feel like sleep is unproductive time so that usually means I stay up late in hopes that I can seize every moment until I collapse from exhaustion.

    Most of the time, when I try to get to sleep early I just end up lying down thinking for 2-3 hours.
    I have noticed working just seems easier around midnight.

    I'm a night owl too.

    "An hour and a half after waking, early birds and night owls were equally alert and showed no difference in attention-related brain activity. But after being awake for 10 and a half hours, night owls had grown more alert, performing better on a reaction-time task requiring sustained attention and showing increased activity in brain areas linked to attention. More important, these regions included the suprachiasmatic area, which is home to the body’s circadian clock. This area sends signals to boost alertness as the pressure to sleep mounts. Unlike night owls, early risers didn’t get this late-day lift."

    Early Risers Crash Faster : Scientific American
    The task of thinking is to live with doubt in the service of understanding, rather than living with certainty in the preservation of ignorance.
