The Early Bird

  1. Oh how this sounds familiar. I am a night owl and I have yet to adjust to becoming a morning person. I also was placed on probation after my 3rd semester! As a freshman I thought I knew what I was doing. I scheduled all of my classes between 7:30 am and noon. I would have the afternoon to study and whatever else. My evenings would belong to me. It sounded good in theory, and looked even better on paper. Unfortunately, it was the worst idea ever. I later ended up with jobs requesting my presence at 8 am. I lived an hour away, had to get ready, get a toddler ready, and off to daycare. This required me to be up at 5:30-6 am. That was the worst year ever. I have yet to get in a routine to be anything close to a morning person. Probably because I feel the same way you do. I get so much accomplished at night, and my mind is free and open to be creative.

    1. That’s funny about being put on probation after 3rd semester. That was certainly a wake up call. I did the same thing with my classes too! Are you sure we aren’t the same person?! I worked at the campus library so my hours were flexible there. When I reset my schedule I began working earlier, and set my classes for the afternoon. That way when I got to campus after my walk I didn’t have to focus right away on school stuff. I could take a little time to just decompress and work, then head off to classes. It worked out a lot better in the end. And yeah, some morning are better than others these days. This morning was one of those “not” mornings.
