Late at night.

I am enjoying my late nights.




Peaceful.



Serene.



Tranquil.

Perhaps, the only thing I don't like, are the early mornings that follow a late night :-D
But apparently since I'm young, I'm also crazy, and do not need much sleep.

As the world spins madly on, I sit perfectly calm in my room, pondering the inner-workings of myself, God, other people, the world. My thoughts are a beautiful blur. I often think in retrospect, it's a lovely state of mind.

I've had writer's block lately, and I think it's because I've been wanting to write as someone I'm not. I have been trying to come up with these witty posts, intriguing topics, relateable posts. But really, this blog is for me and I just need to write whatever flows from my fingers...
Even if it's just random nonsense such as this (:



It's 2 am, and I'm having coffee in the morning with a dear friend. I will not regret this late night nor the early morning. I can do both. And considering in ten years when I will (God willing) have a family and won't be able to do these late nights and early mornings, I'm going to savor this time as a teenager. Often, I think I'm trying so hard to "grow up" that I forget to live in the moment.

As my thoughts trail off, so does this blog...

Running after His heart,

What a wonderful post, Samantha! See why I am more of a night time person? Night time can be wonderful. Early mornings are hard, but I guess there is some good in them! :) I have come to realize I don't need much sleep, either. All these years and finally it has hit me. I can't handle more than five or six hours of sleep otherwise I am tired all day. Anything less and I am still asleep like a rock. I am so glad I am not the only one like this. Maybe it has something to do with that verse in Proverbs. Remember when they are talking about the "perfect" wife. She rises early in the morning and is the last to go to bed. Maybe this is me unknowingly becoming prepared. Okay, I guess I am trying to make excuses for my late night habits and the demand to get up early for work. :)
