night life

I've done something incredibly stupid.

I really have. It may not sound like it to you, but the implications of my actions could be.. life changing, to say the least.

A long story short, I came home from a stressful day of winging exams I hadn't prepared for, and fell asleep on the couch. I expected to wake so that I could catch dinner, but it seems that even my subconscious is bent on missing deadlines. Basically I just slept all through the afternoon and evening and night, and woke at 1.00am. That was an hour ago; it's 2 now. Sad thing about this is, this is one of the rare times I slept for a full 8 hours, so there's no way I'm about to get back to sleep now. 

What I'm trying to say that this pretty fucked up sleeping pattern is opting for an entirely new lifestyle. 

It would mean that my day should generally start at midnight. I would eat, get myself cleaned and dressed in the first hour, then do my homework from 2-7 am before packing for school and catching the 7:24 bus to school, or an earlier one if I wanted to finish any extra work, although I really shouldn't need to as I would have been spending the previous 5 hours doing that exact thing. I'd sleep a couple of hours after I return home from school, and the cycle would begin again.

There are many 'Pro's to this lifestyle. It wouldn't allow for much procrastination - especially in the form of instant messaging as not many other people are awake at these hours, and also because generally you would be completing tasks on the morning that they're due. It sounds risky, but if I pull this off correctly and plan my time, I really should be finishing things days before. The cons to this lifestyle mainly involve being socially distant to the people in my home, and perhaps the people I talk to on msn... I don't know. Is it worth it? Also the time management would take some planning and getting used to, and if it failed, getting back into the rhythm of normal sleeping patterns would be hell.

But anyhow, I love the night time. There's just something about the infinite darkness that gives a sense of equality. The night is timeless. The clocks tell you otherwise, but there's nothing in the sky that believes them.
