I’m not a morning person, never have been. Some people hear their alarms and bounce out of bed. If this applies to you, I applaud you…and hate you. I’m far more likely to hit the snooze button and attempt to bury back under the duvet, preferably until I hit Narnia
When you’re working you don’t have a choice. The problem is unless you want to be in college for the rest of your life ( I learnt this one the hard way ) you don’t have a choice either. How do I survive the injustice of having to get up. every .single.morning. Music.
Earphones are the most antisocial piece of technology ever invented, and my God I love them! That ” I want to chat” person attempting to make eye- contact on an already steamed up, cramped up bus? Ha, good luck to ya buddy. I don’t do small talk until after 9, at least
Here’s one of my favourite, thaw out tunes. Add a piping hot coffee and a bus partner ho is happy to ignore me right back, and the morning becomes bearable.
Zooey’s quote reminds me of a boss who had “quiet hour” from 9 to 10 am. The problem was we were in the consulting business and clients call for a reason. But, per the old song “Silence is golden,” so I like your bus ride description. BTG
I’m sorry to say, but….I am the most productive in the morning! I am up by 4:40am on work days and 5:00am on days off by choice. I have been like this for most of my life, so I doubt I will change much anytime soon. 🙂
