Rise And Shine.

How do you wake up?

I go either of two ways.

In the morning, if I know I have to work, I normally bounce out of bed when the alarm goes off (or at least after the "snooze" has been hit once) and hurry toward my morning ritual to get ready.

If I don't have to work, or have any place special to be, I am horrible at getting up. I get out of bed alright, but if I'm given the least chance to be horizontal again, it's all over. Afternoon naps? Love 'em, but I'm a bag of shit for an hour afterwards. Same if I try to cat-nap on my lunch hour. (Where I work there are couches in the lunch room, and trust me, I make full use of them when I can.)

Is everyone like this? Or is it just me?

I've known people in the past who have been horrible at getting up. I had a roommate once who could sleep at least eighteen hours. I've also known people who can charge out of bed at the crack of dawn and be ready to do complex math equations in fifteen minutes.

I'm normally somwhere in between. Except for the math. God, I'm bad at math.

But that's another post in and of itself.

  1. Complete opposite fir this kid. I f I know I have to work it takes me longer to get going in the morning. Yet if i don't I get up no problem. I figure this is because instead of having my hopes and dreams crushed and destroyed I can look forward to a coffee and newspaper and the local coffee shop...
