    Night owl? Morning person?

    I am definitely a night owl. I don't work in the summer and usually go to bed between 2:00-3:00am and get up between 10:00-11:00am. I just feel better when I'm on this time. When I head back to work in the fall, it's a struggle to get up at 5:00am all year.

    I am a night owl too! I am off for summer break and I usually go to sleep around 3:30- and wake up about 10:30a. I will hate going back to work and will be a zombie for the first two weeks.

    Re: Night owl? Morning person?

    Hello night owls. I had four days off and I basically slept for three of them. Now, I cannot fall asleep and my alarm will ring in 3.5 hours. Years ago, I worked a rotating shift and my favorite was 10pm - 6am. I really like staying up all night and sleeping all day. Then, college degrees and being a "professional" pulled me away from that life. I am going to try and sleep now.

    I claim night owl for tonight too. Maybe this bottle of red will help.

    Yes, middle school PE. I'm surprised I can even spell or type! A little PE humor! Enjoy your summer as well. It seems to always fly by when you hit July.

    Re: Night owl? Morning person?

    I use to be up late, and sleep in as much as i could. Kids changed that! I don't have a set schedule at work so I like to get in at 7 and get out by 3. Getting up early stinks, but, coming home and still having some sunlight is better.

    Re: Night owl? Morning person?

    Lol, nice PE humor Kevin. It does fly by for sure...we go back in mid-August. While I miss the kids, I also miss my time getting caught up on everything at home that gets put on the back burner due to school responsibilities!! I'm not very good at balance sometimes! Aserrano, I bet so...nice change after working in the summer!

    Some people are sunrise and some are sunset, I'm a sunrise person. I get up at 4:30am for work. Even on weekends I'm up at 5:00 for no reason, no matter how late I go to bed. It's so nice not dealing with AM traffic and weekends and are so pleasant to have coffee and read the paper by by the pool real early. No noises from neighbors, cars or the neighborhood kids. Only noise is the birds chirping.

    What a great way to start the day. When I worked shifts and came home around 7, I would sit on the front porch and bask in the morning sun as my neighbors headed off to work. That was very relaxing.

    Re: Night owl? Morning person?

    When I was younger, I use to work 7 day swing shifts. I always preferred 2nd or 3rd shift over days. Then they switched to 12hr shifts 1 month on days then 1 month on nights. Still preferred the night shifts.

    Re: Night owl? Morning person?

    I've worked all kinds of shifts. If I had to pick I would say I like 2nd the best. I lived on a lake at the time and the best times to fish are early in the morning and right at dusk. So I would get up, fish, work, fish, and go to sleep. Was great.

    Now a days I'm up at 4:00am back in bed around 11:00pm. I like to watch TV in peace, so the morning is my chance.

    Re: Night owl? Morning person?

    Hey Kevin, how can we convince the states to open a "2nd shift" school? All this research has been done on how teenagers are not morning people, and we didn't really need research to tell us that!! I'd absolutely be on the transfer list ASAP!!
