Oh God, I’m Late Again! 7 Night Owl Problems That Morning People Will Never Understand


Some of us wake up at six in the morning with a wide smile on our face while others come alive at night. Unlike morning people, we night owls do not like to be woken up before noon. And if you dare make that mistake, god save you from our wrath! 

We have nothing against early birds but TBH, life is tough for night owls. And it’s not because the nocturnal lifestyle is difficult or anything, it’s all due to the judgment! Late-risers are usually looked at as lazy people by society but we never let it ruffle our feathers. But no matter how hard we try, sleeping early and waking up before noon is practically impossible for us. 

So, there are some things that we do that are just beyond the understanding of morning people. And if you’re a night owl like me, here are some things you will definitely relate to!

1. Morning Meetings/Classes?

No way you’re going to wake up on time for that 7 am class or meeting. So, you end up staying awake all night just to get the work done and hit the bed at 8 am or maybe later.

2. An Early Night

Your idea of an early night is going to sleep at 1 am! You can try all you want but there’s no way you’re going to fall asleep at 10 or 11 pm. 

3. Oops! I’m Late

You’ve said that far too many times in the morning. You are always on time post-sunset but if it’s a morning plan, you’re bound to get late. You’ve changed plans and missed appointments more times than you can count. 

4. Bring On The Caffeine

You bring out your cup of coffee just when everyone is putting away theirs. You don’t have to think twice before drinking coffee at 10 pm because let’s face it, it’s not like you’re going to sleep anytime soon anyway!

5. Breakfast? What’s That?

Because you’re incapable of waking up early, you’ve probably never had a proper breakfast. You either wake up at brunch time or sometimes lunchtime! Plus breakfast just isn’t your thing because you’re a pro at late-night snacking. 

6. OMG! It’s Morning Already

Every now and then you have days when you stay up till dawn and then freak out because you know you’ve messed up big time. And we all know there’s no turning back now! The night is over and you’re 100% going to wake up late.

7. No Alarm Days

Weekend means going to bed with no alarm! We all know that sleeping in till late means waking up at 9 am for the early birds. But for you, it’s about going to bed at 9 am without worrying about waking up late for anything!

It’s a fact well-known that the most famous leaders and creative people in history were night owls! Bob Dylan, Charles Darwin, Winston Churchill, Keith Richards, Elvis Presley, Barack Obama, the list just goes on…So the next time you judge us, we’re gonna hit you with some trivia!
