I’ve been slowly turning nocturnal this past month. In Japan I had to keep fairly normal hours. Most of the youth hostels we stayed in had some sort of curfew, and we usually had to be out by a certain time the next day. Since getting back I average about eight hours sleep a night, which is a lot compared to what I usually get, however those eight hours usually start at 3 AM and run through till 11, sometimes even till midday. Of course the days I actually have to go to Uni prompt me to get up earlier, however in general I work at night and sleep most of the day. I am productive, I get stuff done, I have responsibilities and I fill them. I just do so as a creature of the night. There are fewer distractions this way as well.
