Nocturnal. Definition? People who are active at night. A word I learned recently about myself. Studies describe nocturnal people as smart and creative. (Well, I’ll get back to you on that one.) Studies say nocturnal people lag in academics. (Nope, I didn't finish college.) Studies say nocturnal people eat unhealthily. (Uh huh, that explains my high blood pressure.) Use to think being nocturnal was a hindrance. A pain in the ass. Cannot sleep at night. Always late for work the next morning. Now, I embrace being nocturnal.
