Given the fact that night-time is basically 0.5 of a typical Earth day, and the second fact that humans like me live on Earth, surviving at night is very serious business.
I - for one - have major issues with surviving at night. These issues include, but are not limited to:
2) Sudden bursts of creativity and / or genius that temporarily stunt the sleep process
6) Stress about upcoming tests, exams, etc.
I'm sure you've gathered by now that the shadows are out to get me, I swear.
So, I have done something that I encourage all of you to do: make a list of things that you need close by every night such that the imperative sleep process is not impeded.
Here's mine. It's quite simple, really.
Things I must have to survive at night:
1) My sister in the room
ANTI-BOREDOM! She talks in her sleep. Very entertaining. And besides, if she's there, there's a 50/50 chance the shadows will get her instead, and that's something they'll never think of doing twice. She's one tough, but sweet, cookie.
2) A notepad
To go along with #3!
3) A small reading light and / or glow in the dark pens
Because these things allow my eyes to see item #2!
So, yes, this is what I need to survive at night, which, as I stated earlier, is pretty darn nifty in the grand scheme of things.
. . . No lie.
(By the way, just before I published this, one of my friends told me quote: "I actually sleep at night." Hm. Fascinating concept. Oh, yes, you can see her creative genius here.)
