Those who knows me very well will tell you that I’m a nocturnal creature. I only sleep when the sun goes up and works only during the night. You see, I’m a freelance writer. I only work during my ‘best hours’, which is usually at night, after 12 am. I feel as if my body is much more relaxed during that time of the day and I feel much more inspired than any other time of the day.
A lot of people thinks that it’s just weird and abnormal. Night time, to them, is for sleeping and rejuvenating their bodies, not the other way around. And some people thinks that since I lurk around at night alot in the cyberspace… Facebook, Twitter and many more social media community websites during odd hours, they seems to have the impression that I don’t sleep at all.
It is not true. I am human, I still need to sleep. The only difference between me and others is that I just don’t sleep at night. I still sleep 8 hours per day, but only during the day.
A lot of people tries to talk me out of working at night and work during the regular hour like everyone else, but hey, I know my body better and I know what is best for myself. I do what my body tells me to do. I’ll sleep when I feel sleepy. I know my limit. I will eat when I feel hungry. I won’t deprived myself by dieting to loose weight and whatnot like everyone else. And I will definitely rest and take medication when I feel ill.
I know that my working hour is out of the ordinary, but hey, who are you to tell me what to do when such things works for me and and increases my productivity? There is no point working during regular hour if there’s no inspiration or no concentration at all. Now, that would be just wasting time won’t it?
Anyway, I used to think that I am weird too until I stumbled upon the graph above. Apparently the brain is much more active at night, and I’m glad to know that all these while, I’m making proper use of my brain instead of letting it goes to waste at night.
Cleffairy: The graphic above also lets us know that we can actually remove some large part of our internal organs and still survive. That means, we can donate our organs like kidney and liver and still survive the surgery. I have known this fact for quite some time and have pledge to be an organ donor, though I don’t have the courage to donate my organs while I’m still alive. They can harvest whatever that can be used from my body when I’m dead, though. I don’t mind. I won’t be needing them anymore when I’m dead anyway. Donating organ saves lives. Are you an organ donor?
