Is it only me that, when it starts to get dark, when the clock ticks closer to 00:00 that feels differently?
I mean that in the sense that all my feelings I have are amplified, it's like they get amplified by a factor of 10.
It is very annoying, if I'm angry I get aggressive, if I'm sad, I get depressed, anyone else that has experienced anything like this? I usually deal with it by going to bed early, because, some days, you just can't take it anymore, and during the night, all hell breaks lose for me if I'm awake and had a bad day, especially if I'm sad.
Anywho, anyone experienced this? Or have heard of it?

Anime and game related soundmods:
I'm not very emotional often times, and I don't ever feel spikes are specific times. Biologically it's not totally impossible however, for example, periods and certain pregnancy phase.
If you don't spend time every day dealing with your spiritual problems and well-being, those experiences will be very negative for you. In my life, for example, those times when I'm completely alone and my "emotions" (or spirit from my perspective) begin to flourish, are the most peaceful and wonderful times for me, it's actually the business of the rest of the day that brings me down.
It wasn't always this way, for a long time I was like you, and dealing with my spiritual side was grueling, but it's one of those things that the more you deal with it, the easier it becomes (until it's something you really enjoy to do). I would say one of the major problems with society is that they tend to completely neglect this part of their life in favor of a more materialistic lifestyle, which ultimately leads to unhappiness.

I guess at midnight you're probably more tired, and tired people tend to be more emotional.

Buddha said life was about suffering. It's a point that I don't necessarily agree with, but I agree the message that he was trying to convey. In a materialistic world, everybody is going to have problems, clearly demonstrated by the fact that everybody does have problems. The only difference between people is that some of us choose to embrace and deal with their problems, while others continually run from them and cover them up with materialistic things.

There is no such thing as a person that is eternally happy, or rather, someone that is always at peace... logic only goes so far, and underneath that, all humans are animals.
some things you simply cannot escape from. it is better to confront yourself rather than convince yourself. do not pursue a perfect reality for yourself to exist in, for it is quite unobtainable. saying you've accomplished such a thing is admitting you've settled with the deceptions that cloud further judgment.
in fact, perfection is better described as a bad word, if you are using it to describe your pursuits... what mastery of yourself, your surroundings, and your tasks precludes is not absolute harmony but an equilibrium of sorts... you want to routinize, yes, but you also want to challenge that routine...
this reminds me of a relative of mine, who still to this day always says, "don't think, just do." this can be thought of one way as ignoring a pursuit of thought through action and instead using cognizance of the act to unconsciously perfect it. following with that notion, what i recommend instead is to: think in doing, do in thinking.
it comes back to the idea of an equilibrium... and this equilibrium can be applied to many things, such as the balance of emotions, or the balance of logical thinking and animal behaviors/instincts of a human being... so too does it chime with Yin/Yang, etc., etc.
the point is that you probably are bottling up your thoughts and only releasing them when you are tired. yes, a wild assumption, but i'd like to say that the truth is not so far from that. if you let your surroundings control you, then they will influence you. however, if you control your surroundings, then you will influence them. but remember to balance it! and all this can be taken in many ways...
so yea. act in thinking, think in acting.
my hat's off to hat truck for posting something that really got me thinking... while writing

Don't isolate yourself. It's easy to get down when you're by yourself and listening to sad shitty music. When you're bored this happens easy. Find ways to be around people!!!
It's weird ever since that day, when I hung out with her, I haven't felt sad during the nighttimes. I haven't felt anything, I've been neutral since that day.
Hey Phenom, could you try to compile all the stories you've wrote and put them in one place. I kinda left OT for a whole month and I feel like I am missing a part of the whole deal.

I dig your directionless fury.
I have similar experiences.
It must be related to lack of sleep like mentioned, since I do stay late most of the nights.
Perhaps your brain are too sleepy to function properly and not able to produce enough of the right hormones that makes you feel balanced. Your brain can't form the illusion of happiness it does in day time
And like said, when the sun sets, you will quickly miss on one "happiness vitamin", vitamin D that the sun produces, and daylight - daylight has many beneficial effects on the brain.
Also It migh be if you haven't done anything productive the whole day you will feel "quilty" of it in the end of the day. It's like an emotional hangover.
In short, your brain needs the right amount* of sleep to function properly, among other things.
* too much sleep has been proven even harmful in many studies.
