#47: Sunrise, Sunset
I had to end on this one because it really spoke to me on a personal level. I am a night owl and have been since the day I was born. If any of you are morning people thinking that night owls just need to try harder, let me tell you, it’s like trying to force yourself on an airplane when you have a debilitating fear of flying: you might be able to force yourself into it, but everything inside of you will be fighting against it, and you’re going to have an unpleasant time.
So yeah, I’ve seen dawn a few times, but at least 50% of the time I see the sunrise, it’s because I haven’t gone to bed yet, not because I got up early. If any of you are night owls like me, here’s a tip: if you have to get up for a flight at three in the morning, you might as well just stay up. You’ll be equally tired either way, but at least you can get stuff done while you’re staying awake.
