I keep them closed, often even during the day. I'm a bit paranoid about my privacy. I also don't like waking up in darkness however, but these days the curtains don't make much difference in that anyway.
It is too dark. I don't mind it in the evening, gives me opportunity to light candles and stuff, but I hate it in the morning. I already have so much trouble getting out of bed in time and darkness makes it worse. I should have one of those daylight alarm clock things.
Well I live on a property and I doubt there'd be any peeping toms out here. So the only faces I'd see is the PeeWee that pecks at his own reflection or maybe a rogue cow that found its way into the yard. haha Curtains Open!!
In my room i closed the blinds and drape the curtain, even though you can't see in my room? i'm not sure why i just cant handle the thought of looking out and seeing a face (too many horror movies), but when i sleep in the living room i think "fuck it" and leave it open.
blinds must be closed. My mind is very imaginative and i'm as well afraid of the dark, thus i need someone with me, my dogs or someone from my family, with me when i'm outside, otherwise my mind will drive me to insanity.
Always closed. I NEED complete darkness to sleep. My eyes are so sensitive that even the tiniest speck of light bothers me like crazy. I often sleep with my eyes open (via lucid dreaming) so I've got to block out light to avoid seeing objects from the room within my dreams, and the temptation to interact with them.
My strategy is heavy curtains and little pieces of electrical tape on any battery charger or whatever is in the room. No alarm clock light either. The only accepted light is the fire alarm battery light outside the bedroom door.
The lack of light however, annoys the hell out of my partner whose night vision is no where near as good.
Yeah my eyes are light grey/green so they take in UV super easy. Sunny days I can barely navigate basic shapes (doors, people) without sunglasses - even with them I still get headaches. :/
My partner's okay with the darkness as long as he's prepared. Sometimes we keep glow sticks about so he can crack one and carry with for the night (and tuck away for sleep). Though occasionally he leaves the hallway light on for a bio break, so I inevitably wake up and turn it off for him.
It is yeah. I'm all for nature colors. Much of my clothing is warm brown, green and occasional black/greys (great with my skin tone, and zodiac apparently).
I guess 'cause you're used to yours, you feel it's boring - but for me it'd be a new experience. I'd def trade my light eyes for a while just to experience some pain-free sunny days with vibrant colors.
