How Do People Stay Up So Late?

I am not a night owl, never have been, never will be. However the last week and a half I have been staying up a lot later than usual, between bf coming over in the evenings, our team making it to the college finals and just life, I am really starting to drag. I'm to the point where I am taking off early today to go home and take an afternoong nap! Bf is coming over tonight to watch the finals and they don't start until 9:10, so it will be another late night for me. Mind you, "late" for me means anything past 10 and I am up at 6 am.

Youth. That's the only reason I can think of. We used to do it! Until about 35......

Fresh college grads in my entry level law firm I work for can pull it off but the fuckers don't have kids to get ready in the morning.....fuckers.

 Some people do not need alot of sleep.

If I go to sleep at 10, I am awake at 3am, than tired the rest of the day.

Going to sleep at midnight or later and waking at 5am works for me.

 I think its based on different peoples needs, I used to be a night owl before DD.

During the week, if I go to bed passed 11pm I highly doubt that I will be up on time.

When I was young I used to be able to go 24 hours without sleep.

I function the best if I'm in bed around 8-9, asleep by 10ish, and then wake up around 7am. I just do so much better when I wake up rested and early so I have the entire day to be productive.

Sometimes on weekends if I'm out with friends drinking or something I won't get home until around 3-4am but I've been doing a lot less of that lately.

My daughter doesn't go to bed until 9 and I get so much done when she's in bed. I don' t usually sit down for the night until 10:30-11:00 and then I'm up for a couple hours watching TV.  I get up around 7:45.  I only need 5-6 hours of sleep a night.

I'm a night owl, but I also tend not to sleep more than 4 or 5 hours. I've never needed alot of sleep.

I work 3rd shift (7p-7a), so maybe that has something to do with it.

I think late is relative . . . for me, going to bed prior to 10:30 is "early"; I tend to wake up at 7a regardless of what time I go to bed. A typical night for me is 12:30-1a.
