    Although I get at least 8 hours and often more, I am not a morning person.

    Hell no. I stay up until three in the morning, or so, reading, writing, surfing the web, or watching TV. I sleep until noon on weekends, however on weekdays I slam the pillow on my head, enraged that I have to get up.

    I did have to wake up at 6 to catch the big cheese to high school. Those days are either gone or slowly resurface in morning lab classes at 7:30am until 12:20pm. I have to get used to both being a welding student. I can do night, morning is slow to get back into that rhythm that you used to get with when 6 yrs old. That and parents may become pain in the rear when you get to a certain age. So moving out is not a bad thing, not expected to show yourself like in some households. YOU got to get yourself up and motivated for the day/night. Postscript: Do not mind me, I lost my comment box to type in.

    Some people are night owls because they work third shift jobs.Being happier and healthier has nothing to do with it.

    Yup, depending on the season, I'm up between 4:00am and 6:00am. Love the peace of early morning. It's also the only "me" time I have.

    Yeah me too, sometimes it's impossible for me to go to sleep at a reasonable time. Anyways, when it comes to TV the good stuff is on only at night.

    For me, a laptop with Internet is my friend. I don't watch that much TV, most likely due to the fact that I don't have cable TV.

    Up all night, sleep all day! I hate it when people call me lazy because I sleep all day! Not True! I sleep the same amount of hours as a morning person who sleeps at night! I just do it during the day because, I do everything else at night! Go shopping, clean house, do laundry etc. It is just more calming at night! It's how my internal clock works for me!

    happy vampire

    ... well, he looks happy. I'm happy. :-D

    It's more of how many hours of sleep did I get and not really the issue of day or night.

    Actually, I'm grumpier in the morning because I hate traffic. Morning rush hour here is a b**ch.

    Actually, I wouldn't classify myself as either, to be honest. I love both morning and night, but I'm not "most active" during either time. I just... am.

    I was a good and dutiful morning person for many years, now I don't have to be, and I am truly in my element...I love being up late,,,,the house is quiet, no body bugging me, the phone is not ringing off the hook, the grocery stores are mostly empty, and the checkout lines short....lots of good parking spaces in the lots....Nothing bad about being a night person...

    Morning people may well be happier than night owls in the morning, but just keep them up late and see who's grouchy.
