Why Being A Night Owl Is Not A Bad Thing (From the Editor)

This is a letter from the editor. A night owl whose brain truly comes alive in the nighttime. I work at a bar some nights for extra cash (I’m far from banking off this site) and when I’m off I realize how sharp my mind can be with out all the clutter daytime brings.  People who go to bed at midnight as many times a year as Frank Ocean goes out in public may be the way we are for a variety of different reasons, but we can all relate, so let’s just leave it at that for now.

For people like me, going to bed before midnight is about as rare as seeing a unicorn tied to a tree outside. For those of you who feel like an outcast surrounded by people who love going to bed early and waking up at the ass-crack of dawn, I have for you a list of articles that say you’re one of the smart ones. So, just relax, and use these fine pieces of writing as reassurance. Don’t get me wrong, you’re definitely weird but weird in a good way… plus you’re more than likely far from stupid. That’s a huge plus.
