I’m a nyctophiliac (see definition of nyctophilia here). I’m definitely a night owl. Recently, I posted “go get um’ at night,” talking about how I avoid wasted days by go getting um’ at night.

How do I avoid wasted days? I don’t. I’m a daytime procrastinator. Tried and true, through and through.

However, all hope is not lost. I’m a pretty successful person (if I must say so myself). I meet all my deadlines and do so with high quality and 110% effort. How do I do it? I go get um’ at night.

I LOVE the night.

Right now, I have the luxury of not having a 9-to-5 job. However, I still have responsibilities and deadlines. But instead of fighting my slow, distracted, ADHD brain cells during the day, I utilize my night time wisely.

There’s no sense in fighting it. It takes double, if not triple, the time and effort to complete tasks during the day than it would at night. The night brings on efficiency.

I don’t know if it’s just me or my personality type (or a combination of both), but I just don’t/can’t work during the day.

I go get um’ at night.
