Who else sleeps outside of their actual designated time zone?

I'm pretty sure I'm non-24 and that I have some weird wiring in my brain that forces me to be more nocturnal. Sunlight makes me extremely sleepy and even if I stayed up for 24 hours by the time night falls I feel more energetic again. I doubt it's SAD syndrome--I live in Florida and the difference between daylight and night hours is 4 hours between the solstices. But it's almost 9AM for EST folks, and it's more like I'm on Sydney time, and it's 11PM and I need to sleep now... I think I lack a circadian rhythm entirely because there's absolutely no set amount of time I stay awake and sleep for, and no long term schedule helps (the entirety of high school proved that it's not just a matter of bad habit).

I mean, saying goodnight even if it's daytime is accurate for SOME part of the world...

I've always been more nocturnal. It makes sense in the grand scheme. If we all sleep at once, we're all defenseless at once.

I dunno...I much, much prefer nighttime. It's more comfortable for me. And I feel drained during the day.

My husband seems to live on Pacific Time although we live in the Eastern time zone. Drives me nuts!
