Since the age of 11 I have been a “Night Owl”.  Endless nights spent staying awake for no apparent reason. As a student my late nights actually allowed for some of my more impressive scholastic achievements. As I got older, lack of sleep gave me the added time to enjoy extra curricular activities. Now as an adult it is a source of frustration. Most nights I wish that I could just come home to my bed, so I can enjoy the wonders of a good night’s sleep. Do I have a problem? If so, how do I remedy it?
