I'm an early to bed, early to rise kinda gal so when I have work (not to mention school) and I don't get to bed on time, I am off kilter for the rest of the day. I also can't catch up on sleep during the day - I have to be exhausted to get my body to nap. At night, if I don't head to bed at the right time, sometimes my body forces it on me. Yup. I have fallen asleep on a date during a movie (and that's when we just started dating too lol). I won't talk about at home. That I do all the time in the middle of conversations, movies, phone calls.

This morning I had to be on campus at 8:15 am to prep for a course we're launching. Maaaaaan, it is indescribably difficult to get myself up and going early. I need to negotiate with myself and motivate myself to get moving. Took me 30 mintues a.k.a. 3 snoozes to get up.

This is the main reason I know I am not a 9 to 5 person. I like coming into the office and working on my own schedule. Sometimes I like 7 am, sometimes I don't feel like moving till 11 am, and sometimes I just want to stay home and work. Which is why I am in school doing a 2nd masters. I need some flexibility in the future.

*2 thumbs up* for a full night's rest


  1. I've begun to realize this is how I am too. I need to be in bed early, and if I don't my body either fails and shuts down or I crash the next day, all day long. Good for you for getting that 2nd masters, hopefully it'll help you create your own schedule one day. :)

  2. I used to think it meant I was an oldie but I think our bodies want us to stay looking young :) Thanks for the encouragement...this schooling must be for a reason else it will be as most fear - I am a professional student and will be in school for the rest of my adult life lol

  3. Don't fret if you're a pro student either. I think that's an awesome career! I wish I liked school, but it just doesn't agree with me. I might try to go back in a while though. Maybe once I've turned off the baby factory.
