19 Truths People Who Love To Stay Up Late Will Relate To

Winston Churchill, Charles Darwin and John Travolta. What do they all have in common? They’re all part of a secret underground club, a club that the nerdy old early birds will never belong to: the night owls. Modern night owls are fuelled by endless social media scrolling and are often prone to falling down the Youtube rabbit hole, watching endless videos of cats jumping into cardboard boxes.

 

And when the lols run out, you can be certain that your inner monologue will keep you awake, kindly reminding you about that assignment you’re behind on or that embarrassing thing that happened five years ago. So next time you’re awake at 3am counting down the hours till your alarm goes off, just remember that you’re not alone.
