Professional Insomniac

I have always been a night person. I found that after 10 pm, I seemed to perk up and get more done.

Dinner is digested, the night’s entertainment over (movie has been watched, games have been played, company has left). Those happy hour cocktails have worn off and I still have a long list of things I wanted to do that day. What a great time to take care of it while it is relatively quiet and there are fewer distractions!

It has been normal for me to stay up until 1 or 2 and work on the computer, or on re-mixing songs or sometimes just playing video games.

Lately, however, I sense a different trend; without having to go to an office at 7:30 am every morning, I have been staying up later and later working on projects. Then later…and later….and then still later!

As I type, it is 8:30 in the morning, my wife has gotten up so I made us some coffee and I am ready to hit the long list of items for today… I never went to bed at all. Does this mean I don;t need to sleep anymore? Have I finally broken through the barrier and no longer have to lay down every evening and waste away 8 hours of precious life?

I have always said that I don’t like sleeping. It always feels like I’m going to miss something important because I am asleep. Like I am missing out on life in general by being conked out in the bedroom. We only have a short time here on earth and I want to hear, smell taste, touch and experience as much of it as I can.

  1. I actually ended up missing the whole evening of sleeping; took a shower and went out to run errands all day. I had an extremely productive day and then went to bed at 9 the next night.
