late night inspiration

At some point between the hours of eleven p.m. and 3 a.m., my brain begins to buzz with creativity. Maybe it's the quietness, or perhaps it's the spicy scent of my chai tea. But for some unknown reason, late night hours bring with them a whole host of new ideas, whether it's new camera shots to try, or a theme for a piece of writing.

I have just now noticed that my mirror looks very smudgy in this picture, and now I'm feeling the need to go clean it. And yes, that is the Eiffel Tower on my shirt, thank for asking. :)

So as often as I can get away with it, I camp out with my notebooks/books, tea, and my ever present camera. I turn on my happy thinking music, {*whispers* Ingrid Michaelson} grab a pen, and let the ideas overwhelm me. Though this will sometimes result in a rather slow morning the next day, this process has also produced some pretty awesome English papers, if I do say so myself. :)

What time of the day do you feel most creative?

p.s. Happy April Fools! I hope your day was filled with fun pranks. Mine, unfortunately was lacking of the aforementioned element, but I did see a group of guys with green hair, so that was interesting. {I also feel as if there may be an intriguing story behind that... :)}

Awesome post Tress! And you love Chai tea too? AHH! I'm so obsessed with it! I love it iced! My sister Jordan makes it the best! :)

Haha, I didn't get any pranks but one! - I was on a Hunger Games fan website, and the website said that Josh Hutcherson wasn't going to play in the next two HG movies! haha. I flipped. And then my little brother Ben had to remind me it was April fool's day! :)

Megan - Same here! Something about those times of the day just seem to spark my imagination. :)

Leah - Yes, I love chai tea! It's amazing. :) And that's a terrible prank; I'd be very upset if they replaced him haha.
