    Those that carry. Are you a 'morning person'?

    It occurred to me the other day that everyone that I know that carries regularly is a 'morning person'. By morning person, I mean someone that prefers the early part of the day for getting things done versus those that prefer the last part of the day for the same (what I'd call a night owl).

    I'd like to know if this is just coincidence or if it might be a valid generalization.

    Thanks for you time,
    ThumperACC

    I for one can testify to the other side of this. If I'm not at work, I'm sleeping in late and staying up late. Maybe it's because I'm 21 and single? No wait, that's definitely why.

    I am 57 and definitely a morning person. I get up between 5:30 and 6:00 even on the weekends.

    Hard to say. I prefer getting everything out of the way in the morning and having the nights open, but I still don't like getting up early.

    I'm going to abstain from this poll, because while I do enjoy mornings, my sleep schedule is very erratic due to the medications I have to take for my organ transplants, and because of my type I diabetes. I have a lot of difficulty maintaining a normal sleep schedule.
    I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

    If I sleep until 6am, I consider it "sleeping in"...

    I am most definitely NOT a morning person. The older I get, the harder it is to stay in bed past 0800, but I certainly don't get moving before then unless I have to go to work or attend a scheduled event. My most productive time is early to mid afternoon into the early evening. When I was in the AF, I loved working swing shift. I actually preferred mids to an early day shift.

    I only wake up early on Monday-Thursday. I Usually wake up around 8:00 on my days off. I rarely ever get to sleep before 1:00 in the morning.

    I f I have a lot of yard work to do, I'll wake up early, but I don't like to. Coffee is my friend.

    I like getting up early and going out for breakfast. If I don't I'll end up at IHOP.
