Not actually a vampire

It's no big secret that I dislike sunlight. I dislike being out in the sun, I dislike sunlight peering into the room, and I dislike the heat that it brings. Yesterday, I was trying to remember if I ever liked sunlight, and I can't really remember such a time. If there was such a time, it must have been when I was very young, because my eyes have been really sensitive to light for as long as I can remember. I enjoy unnatural, blue, and diffuse overhead lights of indoors, but outside, I like it dark or at least shady, and cool. Sometimes, on weekends, I make a conscious effort to not leave the apartment until it's dark out; for example, to take out the trash or recycle cans and bottles or get my mail.
