Everything is enhanced after midnight; emotion, conversation, eating toast, music, silence…I could go on.
I find it hard to fall asleep at night, as I often have a lot on my mind or just don’t feel tired. While this is sometimes an issue (for example, when I have to leave for university at 7:30 the following morning), on nights which are followed by days with no plans…I let my insomnia take me over and I happily succumb to sleeplessness.
I am an introvert, and someone who loves being alone. I’m also someone who thinks too much about everything and who is constantly bothered with feelings of stress or anxiety. But, for some reason when it comes to nightime, I feel a sense of peace. Nobody is expecting anything of me, I’m alone and can be who I want, feel how I want and think about anything without interruption. I get silence, I feel productive and I feel calm. I never go to bed particularly early, as I see that as wasting the night. I know that this is not always practical, however I find it hard to care.
And this is why it is 1:16am and I’m about to put my phone down, neck the rest of my cup of coffee and continue to read my book under a pile of fluffy blankets and feel nothing but complete and utter content.
