13 Things You Know To Be True If You're A Night Owl

Early-birds just don't get it.

13 Things You Know To Be True If You're A Night Owl

There are things that early-birds just don't get about us. There are things we just don't get about the early-birds. The world needs both, that's for sure. And sometimes your friend ends up being the opposite of you and you wonder if your friendship will survive these harsh conditions (okay... that MAY be overreacting. You get the point, though). Your friends have come to terms with the fact that you may talk about three texts-per-day because of your different schedules.

1. You're way more productive at night.

It's not your fault, you just work better later for some reason!

2. Which means deadlines earlier than 12 A.M. are KILLER.


Which may mean working twice as hard the night before and submitting it early so that you don't accidentally miss the deadline...

3. Having to work early is a nightmare...


4. ...but you're always willing to cover night shifts.

And, typically, those are hard shifts to get covered. So you have a good chance for your managers to like you.

5. You end up thinking everything closes early...


6. When really, everything closes at a normal time and you're the one out late.

There's nothing worse than that feeling of driving by the place you wanted to get food from to see it completely dark inside. Or offering to go get some sweet junk food for you and your family/friends at 9:50 PM to find out that the donut place closes at 10 PM. And it takes you at least 10 minutes to get there.

7. When you're tired, though, you're TIRED...


8. ...which might mean you pass out anywhere in your house.


The couch, chair, the table, on a backless chair in your parents' house, the possibilities are endless.

9. You can't live without caffeine.

You're so thankful that coffee places open early so you can grab a coffee (or two) before your early shift. Let's be real, when you get up early you sleep in as much as possible, which means you don't really have time to make your own coffee. The money is worth the sleep.

10. You have that dreaded feeling when someone wants to make plans for early in the day.


The phrase "want to meet at 10?" haunts you because you know they don't mean P.M. But you love your friend, so you make the sacrifice for them.

11. People get annoyed with you when you sleep late.

12. Then they think you're ignoring them...


13. Your eating schedule doesn't exactly line up with everyone else's.


5 P.M.? You mean lunch?

I know that age is just a number, but with that comes a number of things you need to know.

25 Things To Know By 25

1. Water is your best friend.

This may seem so obvious, but those who are still not consuming enough water on a daily basis, like myself, clearly need a refresher. Life can get so crazy with everything that is going on that not only may you forget, but caffeine may seem like your best friend instead. Which coffee may be a close second I am not going to lie, but there is only so much coffee can do for you while water can do a million others. Putting your obvious health aside, water can also keep your skin looking fresh with age and keep your energy longer.

A Reason To Be. A Reason To Dance.

Take a deep breath, step out on stage, and live.

A Reason To Be. A Reason To Dance.

The sun is barely awake but the shrill sound of my alarm is assaulting my slumber. My eyes are tired, but my heart is inundated. My world is suddenly filled with a wispy morning holding on to the promise of magic. My makeup brushes transform me into a being that can be seen from the back of any auditorium. Everything comes together; seeing team mates, playing your music over and over, stretching in cramped hallways and having team heart to hearts in secluded stairwells. All the nuances of a life art: the smell of hairspray engulfing a dressing room, the heat radiating off the metal lighting stands backstage, the littlest things give me the shivers because they just let me know that I’m home. It is bliss and adrenaline and the closest thing to pure magic I will ever get.

My peaceful place


I'm sure many of us have a peaceful place, for me I go to church to find peace and comfort. The only two places where I feel safe, at ease and comfortable are my house and my local church. During the rough times in my life, I just pray and meditate, knowing that my prayers will be answered. But even when I'm happy, or in just about any mood, I try my best to go to church as often as I can.
