I’m sorry- am I being too loud?

The longer I live the more it seems socially acceptable to be loud until 4:00 a.m.

People aren’t so tolerant of being loud at 6:00 a.m.

I don’t see the difference

People are sleeping at 6:00 a.m. you say

People are also sleeping at 10:00 p.m. – 4:00 a..m.

One time I went camping with my boyfriend at the time. My friend Natalie, along with her husband and children (whom were young adults), joined us for a night. We were having so much fun. It was a beautiful spot by the river. We were grilling for dinner, playing silly games, and having fun hanging out. Natalie and I have a lot in common. For one, we both share a love of electronic music. She likes Trance and we just have to forgive her for that.

I have always been early to bed and early to rise. This night would be no different. Going to bed early made me feel like a boring person in my 20’s and 30’s. I still feel boring at 46. I also feel well rested.

No matter where I am, my eyes want to close no later than 10:00 p.m.

The people camping next to us had different plans.

I realize that people are allowed to spend their time in nature however they like. I certainly was following my heart. Our camping experiences were going to be radically different.

They had their party, enjoyed their beers and listened to their music until the wee hours of the morning.

The following day, I woke up early. It was time to make breakfast. Natalie woke up and joined me shortly after I started preparing food. We both like to listen to music making meals. Insert electronic music dance party at 6:00 a.m.

Rise and Shine fellow campers.

If they can play music and party when people are sleeping at night, what is the difference for me to play music in the morning when I am awake and ready to have a good time?

The answer is nothing. Nothing is different. Spare me your evil eye and complaints that you are trying to sleep.

These pancakes are calling my name.
