when I was really really little (like pre-preschool age), I remember never liking to take naps because.. the concept of sleeping in the day just sounded dumb to me.
nowadays, I know I’m tired and I do very highly value sleep, but even at 1 in the morning I don’t really want to go to sleep because if everyone just stayed up all the time there would be so much fun stuff to do aaahhlll thuhh tymmmeee!!
same then and now: not wanting to miss important things by means of sleep
