Weird intellectucal performance tendancies
For the past few years my sleeping times have really changed a lot, but this year it got really crazy. You usually won't find me going to sleep anytime before 3 AM, although I have to wake up at 7 AM in the morning, and during weekends I usually go to sleep early in the morning and wake up late in the afternoon. On holidays it's even worse, I usually end up sleeping so late, that, when I have to go back to school, it's easier to just not sleep all day and then sleep early in the evening rather than going to bed earlier so that I can wake up at 7 AM.
Now throughout the year, I started noticing that often times, unless im busy playing games or practicing activities that involve hand movement next to a certain region of the body, I have a lot more motivation to do stuff at night than I usually have. I thought maybe it's because I'm more awake at night, but actually it seems like, besides the occasional errors due to tiredness, I'm at the top of my intellectual abilities when I'm really tired at 7 AM or something after having stayed up the whole night. For some reason I get a lot more motivated to do stuff like reading about physics or solving problems in math/programming. Most of the scientific work I've done in my life which is actually worth something was done early in the morning ( = late at night) on my desk with a pencil on the back of some school paper.
Kinda surprising because my mother is the exact opposite, she is always "tired" and cannot think. It also worries me a little bit because constantly staying up so late can damage memory and brain performance (which i noticed on my own, like mornings when I couldn't remember the names of some people in my class lol)
