I like to stay up late at night and sleep late in the morning. (See Night Owl)
But of course I couldn’t indulge those preferences during all my years working at a school, especially the semesters I was on early session and had to punch a time clock at the ungodly hour of 7:40.
But then I had my morning routine down to a science – I’d set my alarm for 6:30, hit the snooze button until 6:45, wash and dress by 7:00, down a protein shake and get to my car by 7:20, and then drive the 5 miles to school, sipping my tea from a paper cup on the way. (See Going Back to Work)
Not surprisingly I much preferred the semesters I was on late session and could get a little more sleep in the mornings. But I must say on my early session dawn commutes seeing the sun rise over the city was a gift heaven sent!!
