Default East Coast guys how do you.....

How do you do it? How do you, or how can you stay up so freaking late? By the time my clock hits 12(midnight) I'm beat and can hardly keep my eyes open but that means it's like 3am your time.... WTF? How can you stay up that late and be on RCC?

Is it because the West Coast rules? Or...?

Just night shift hours, I'm commonly on here till 5am. I'm just the kind of person that if my mind is active I'm active. I have to get bored or physically exhausted before I can sleep.

Kids are asleep. That means it's time to put coherent thoughts on paper.

Join the military...you'll learn to function on 4-5hrs a night of sleep for weeks/months on end.

Yeah, but they usually want me out here 6 days a week. The only good thing is that I usually stay in the AC on my laptop witht the door locked.

Just a night owl, I guess. I used to be up untill 4:30am or so on a regular basis. Now I try to keep it to 2:00am at the latest. It's a bit past that now, but I work second shift tomorrow, so it's all good.

Having the preference of drinking an energy drink than water, and the coffee shop down the road is awesome.
