The Chinese term 報復性熬夜 translates to “revenge to stay up late,” where people who can’t control their daytime life delay their sleep to relish their night time freedom before bed. - @daphnekylee
Especially during academic semesters, my lack of discipline plus the crushing number of deadlines to meet means that sometimes I feel as if I don’t have much control over my time. So when the day ends, that’s the only time I get to unwind.
This is when I’m most susceptible to bedtime procrastination.
Just last Friday, after a long day of studying I decided to watch some boxing videos on YouTube. I started at midnight but next thing I know its 3am. Where has the time gone?
Like all procrastination, bedtime procrastinating doesn’t even feel great in the moment, and there’s a debt to pay the next day.
