10 Questions Night Owls Have For Early Birds

Don't Talk To Me Until At Least Noon

I don't know about you, but as a non-morning person, I get a lot of flack from my early riser friends. They like to kick their day off as soon as possible, while I prefer to stay in bed as long as possible. Do I sleep too long sometimes, some say I do but when I naturally wake up at noon on the weekends I feel happy.

When I wake up at 7 AM. to go to work, I do not feel the warm glow that I feel at noon. Most of my friends say I am a completely different person in the morning, as I do not want to be around anyone at all. This is true because I am still waking up. As I spend my early mornings in an irritated and groggy state, I find myself baffled that morning people can live such full lives on so little sleep.

Here are some things that I am sure all my fellow non-morning people, will agree we just don't get about morning people.

1. How morning people can be so chipper at 9 AM

Your eyes roll into the back of your head every time someone says "Good morning!" in the peppiest voice you have ever heard. No. False. There is no such thing as a "Good" morning in our book, only a good afternoon when we wake up after noon.

2. How morning people don't need to drink coffee to wake up or feel energized

It's hard for us non-morning people to rationalize the fact that you are wide awake without downing 6 cups of coffee. If you want us to be even semi-pleasant in the morning, make sure there is coffee in our hands when we wake up.

3. How morning people wake up early on their days off

If you don't have to go to work, there is absolutely no reason to start your day earlier than you have to. Why "rise & grind" when you can stay in bed all day?

4. How morning people can hold full on conversations before noon

Chances are if you try to talk to us non-morning people before noon, we will either nod while staring into space or have a complete mental break down. We're still trying to wake up, so there is no way we are actually listening to your stories from the weekend. If you want us to be coherent for this story, wait until after lunch to tell us.

5. How morning people wake up early solely to work out

It baffles us non-morning people that people 1. wake up early and 2. do it on purpose to workout. Sorry, my body has a hard enough time getting out of bed in the morning. There is no way we will cut into our precious sleep time for workouts.

6. How morning people think it's funny to wake a non-morning person up early

If you have a death wish, wake a non-morning person up earlier than they need to. I guarantee if they don't kill you with a swift punch to the throat, they will get you with a death glare. It's not funny. R.I.P. to all the souls who have attempted to wake up a non-morning person before they naturally wake up.

7. How morning people only need one alarm to wake them up

HOW!? Us non-morning people have AT LEAST five different alarms each of which are ten minutes apart from each other. We have a bad relationship with the snooze button, as we will either hit it too many times to get a few extra minutes of shut-eye and end up late or the loud blare that disrupts our slumber ruins our mood. Teach us how you wake up with only one alarm morning people!!

8. How morning people say breakfast is the best meal of the day

Nope. Nope. Nope. Breakfast foods are limited but lunch and dinner, there are so many options! Steak, chicken, fish, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, sandwiches, salads, burgers, pizza, etc are all foods that are acceptable to eat during lunch or dinner.

If you try to eat one of these at breakfast (not including brunch) then people will look at you like you've grown another head. There are perks to waking up late, you can skip breakfast and save money because you ate less food during the day. Also, us non-morning people are curious about how you are hungry at 6 AM? Pretty sure you dinner from the night before hasn't even settled quite yet.

So no, breakfast is not the "best" meal of the day.

9. How morning people like sunrises more than sunsets

Sunrises are the same as sunsets basically. Why wake up early to see the sun when you can see it set on your way home from work after you have already been awake for hours? The logic is flawed here guys.

10. How morning people go to bed early when the nights just getting started

Us non-morning people are usually nocturnal beings. This means we like to go out and enjoy the night time. Morning people on the other hand usually do not like to enjoy the night past 9-10pm. Such a waste since bars and concerts are usually just getting started around this time.

This is where we want to be, us non-morning people live for the night because we are finally awake and finally okay with the fact that we are not sleeping. It seems though that right when we get to this point, our morning friends call it a night. You suck. Stop waking up so early so you can enjoy the night with us! You'd be more willing to stay out later if you sleep in later, just saying guys!

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

27261

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
