Top 10 Reasons Why I Like To Stay Up Late

Posted by : foongpc | Saturday, March 13, 2010 | Published in


If you are a regular reader of my blog, you would know by now that I am a night owl.

And by that, I mean that I love the night time and I am most active at night! It also means that I love to stay up late till the wee hours of the morning.

I know, I know, it's unhealthy to stay up late like that. My mom used to tell me to sleep no later than 12 midnight. I think she has already given up on me, haha! But I just love the night time!

So today, let me share with you my top 10 reasons why I like to stay up late! Here goes...

1. After working like a dog in the daytime, I deserve to have a whole night to relax and chill out and enjoy myself! How can I waste the night time by sleeping early and waking up to another dog day world?

2. Night time is so quiet and calming! After all the stress in the daytime, I need the night to relax!

3. I can think better at night when everyone is asleep and nothing is distracting me. Best time to write new posts on my blog!

4. I can watch porn on my laptop without anyone finding out! Haha!

5. I can look forward to my next activity which is .... sleep!!

6. I can eat and indulge in my favourite pineapple tarts without anyone telling me that I should not be eating that much!

7. I can chat online with my other "night owl" friends.

8. I can watch as many YouTube videos as I like which I can't do on the job during the day.

9. I can have the whole TV to myself and no one to fight with me over the remote!

10. Sleeping is the most overrated thing since Blogger.

Note 1 : Please do not use the above excuses to stay up late. Sleep early, peeps! : )

Note 2 : I completed this post at approx. 3.26am : )

    Agree with you on #2 & #3. I think better at night and everything is quiet and calm at night, making it ideal to relax and do my thing.

    Sometimes is fun to be night owl. Usually my biological clock will remind me to sleep at midnight. Hard to remain awake after midnight.

    Well, if you are concerned with global warming and want to save the earth, then sleep early. Why do you think US and European countries have daylight saving time?

    If you switch off light at 12am instead of 3am, you save 3 hours of energy for lighting.

  13. CH Voon said...

    oh... i like night time as well. but as your mummy said... before 12am is better. i agree.

    if you sleep late one problem you will face is sembelit. hehehe

    but too late sleep one things is feel damn exhausted then next day.

    but good things is all listed by you.

    Bad boy bad boy!!!Making Mama unhappy haha. Once in a while is OK but not good for health if done often. Seen and heard that our body needs rest for 'repairing' all the damages and best time to sleep is 23:00-04:00hrs. How true? I am beginning to adjust my timing used to be 01:00hr now cut one hour adjusting to midnite and hope to sleep by 23:00hr and wake up before 06:00hrs. Agree the mind works better in the early morning totally without interruption. Training to sleep lesser hours. tQ

    I don't like staying up late. I believe in having enough sleep so that one is energised for the day ahead. Staying up late creates havoc on my sleep pattern.

    I would ask the same question as Borneo Falcon, what time you wake up today? Wake up early just in time for lunch? haha. What about normal weekdays how many hours of sleep?

    On second thoughts think you need to change the title to "Top 10 Reasons Why I like to Stay Up Early" instead of "Late". haha.:p

  45. foongpc said...

    bananaz, yes I agree sleep before by 11pm is the best. 11pm-1am is for liver health, so actually sleeping during this period is very important. Well, I'll do my best to follow mum's advice and be a good boy, haha!

    March 14, 2010 at 3:25 PM

    Answering to your question about technical glitch as my template is same as Shingo T's Tic Tac Blue except its modified 3 column. After some time the header background and the side bar's wave design went missing. Background base supposed to be white but reversed with the two sidebars. Just keep it that way dunwan to change or consult blogger. tQ

    Consider quitting Blogger and moving to Wordpress? Wordpress is the better blogging platform than Blogger.

    And also consider buying a domain with your own brand name in it.
