Are you a Sleepyhead or Simply Sleep Deprived?

Hello friends, are you an early riser or late sleeper?  Do you like to see the sun rise or the sun set?  What does it mean when it comes to your health?  Are you up and at-em before the break of dawn, or are you sluggish and tired hitting the snooze button 3 or 4 times wishing you could sleep until 12 noon? 

Are you sleep deprived or are just more sunrise active after the sun sets?  How do you classify yourself?  I like my grandmother considered myself a sleepy head, I can’t get started during the day, but as soon as the sun sets, I’m energized and ready to go, but actually I am sleep deprived!
