Some say New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio works a “slacker schedule,” reports the New York Post, but he may just be more aware of his natural circadian rhythms than most.

“I am not a morning person,” confessed de Blasio back on the campaign trail in November 2013. “I think we should reorient our society [to] staying up late, but I don’t think that’s happening right now.”

And as mayor, he remains unapologetic about not being an early bird.
