though its hard to game a night because your parents (if you still live with them) will yell and tell you to sleep.

You could make your own back lit keyboard. Try to drill some holes underneath it and run some lights. Then run the power cable with the wire, etc, etc. Or stick some lights on the side and rune the power cable along with the wires. Or you could just stick one or two on the surface by the top. I don't know, but...it would be easier to buy a backlit lol.
