Morning or Night Person?

I always hate this question in a This or That quiz. I normally say night person or night owl because I do know I absolutely hate mornings.

How I ever got up every day at 5:30 a.m. for high school, I don’t know how I did it. I don’t like getting up early, and I’m not going to get up early unless I absolutely have to. It’s surprising to me that I’ve been getting up early three times a week to run in the morning; I’m out on the road by 7:15 p.m. during the week and by 8:00 a.m. on Saturdays. I have to do that now because it’s getting so hot and I’m not going to run when it’s 90 degrees out.

But I’m also not the person who can stay up all night. It was a little easier in college to stay up late, but once I moved back home, and even now, I can’t really stay up past 10:00 p.m. Lately I’ve been going into bed at 9:00 p.m. and read for an hour before turning my lights off.

I wish there was an option for just being a daytime person. I function the best during regular daytime hours, like 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. because I don’t really lean in one direction more than the other.

During the week my days are dictated by my work schedule, although that’s sort of changed since I’ve been working from home. I’m able to sleep in an extra hour and get up at 7:30 a.m. since my commute has gone from 30 minutes to three feet—from my bed to my desk in my bedroom. On the weekends, I’ll be up and eating breakfast by 9:00 a.m.; even when I was a teenager, I wasn’t one to sleep all day. I like having time in the morning before lunch to get things done, or this is when I’d run errands when you could go places, and I spend my afternoons now reading out by the pool. When I work at the ice cream shop, of course, my weekends revolve around what shifts I was working, either 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. or 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Even in quarantine my habits haven’t changed too much. I do sometimes stay up a little later to read, and I am able to get up early to run before work, but for the most part, I’m still just a daytime person.

Are you a morning person, night person, or a daytime person?

  1. I am a morning person! Ive started getting up at 6 and its killing me!! Anything before 7 is death to me. But even in quarantine I want to keep my schedule. Before I know it, it’ll be September and I’ll have to be back at school lol

  2. This makes me think of an article I read not that long ago! Apparently, there are four types of people: early birds, night owls, afternoon people and nappers. I found it quite interesting because, like you, I never fitted in either morning or night. I’m very much a napper!

  3. I am both I think, but I would say more of a morning person. I love making the most so my mornings and when I was going to work it was nice to be on a less crowded train. Since working from home I have definitely been staying up way later, but somehow it works!

    • I wish I could be more of a morning person, or at least like mornings haha. I do feel like I’m more likely to stay up later now that I’m working from home knowing that I can just kind of roll out of bed in the morning 😂

  4. I don’t know how I got up for high school either, that was crazy. Especially since I had homework to do and worked afterwards, so it’s not like I actually went to bed early either.
    I would definitely say that I’m a night person, although I try not to wake up too late in the mornings.

  5. I am definitely a night person. My switch comes on after midnight and I feel like I can do anything. Writing a blog post during the day is an impossible task. But after midnight…that’s when it happens. Before university, I was always in bed by 10 or 1030, and then that changed. When I was in high school, I remember I’d eat breakfast with a dim light on in the kitchen and my eyes closed. Don’t know how I did it.
