Here's my typical weekday morning for the past few months: I wake up between 8 and 8:30 (no snooze; why wake up until you have to? ), turn on the computer, put in contacts, mix and microwave a bowl of oatmeal and make coffee, check email and surf while taking my time enjoying my oatmeal and coffee, shower, dress, brush my teeth, apply a minimal makeup, and I'm out the door by 10-10:30. I perform the same actions in the same order every weekday (/workday) morning; pretty much the only thing that varies is what's on the monitor and how long I spend in front of it. I'm horribly J that way.
That said, I'm not dependent on the routine to start the day off right. It's just that I just naturally fall into it. When something like sleeping through my alarm or running out of milk occurs to shake things up, I sometimes even have a better morning on account of it, just because I have to really wake up in order to meet the challenge.
- I so need a P partner.
Oh yes, the TC did say a routine didn't he. Well I do not have one. I just wake up and go from there.
Hell no, I have no routine. Whatever needs to be done, I wake up about two hours before I have to get it done. Then I get on with my day, breakfast or not, cigarette right after. Then I usually arrive +/- 10 minutes before my deadline/meeting. I guess you can call that a "ball parked" routine.
I would prefer to not have a morning routine, because I am the God of snooze button. Also, when I can, I prefer to go to bed at 2-3 a.m. and wake up 11 a.m.
In late evening I am more energized for reading etc... in peace.
When I wake up, I let the dogs out and turn on my computer. Let dogs back in, check email, this place, other various sites, all while putting on makeup and listening to XM radio on Dish. (If I wake up too early, I have a song stuck in my head and have to dislodge it.) (Also, if I've had to wake up in the actual morning, I will have usually showered the night before.) Look at clock, panic, go get dressed and brush teeth. Grab a granola bar or something and some water and eat it on the way to work.
Wow I'm a little surprised. I wake up at 5:00 a.m., use the restroom, make coffee, jog, shower, brush teeth, shave, dress, plan my day the best I can, meditate/prayer, and read the newspaper while gulping down four cups of coffee I made an hour before. Usually at work thirty minutes early.
Wake at 5:00am. Feed the cats. Watch the morning news with coffee and a cigarette, usually working on sudoku or a crossword puzzle. Shower at 5:30. Dress, make-up, decide whether to throw together a lunch or eat out. Out the door at 6:20. Catch the bus at 6:30. On campus at 7:00 and read my email in the 15 - 20 minutes I have before starting work at 7:30.
Oh yeah. Breakfast. Sometimes I have something to bring with me, sometimes it's a pretzel from Jamba Juice. I usually eat that at about 8:00, before the distinguished professor emeritus arrives (8:30 - 9:00).
