I'm not a morning person...

...but I play one on TV.

For years, I've generally been the first person on my team at work. This has now spanned two teams, with my recent change of roles at work.

You'd think someone who get's up between 5:30-6AM every day, and is at work by 7:30...7:40 at the *latest* is a morning person, but I'm really not. Times like these prove it.

Although I don't get up at 5:30-6 on weekends normally, I'm almost always up by 7. I also almost always go to bed by 11-11:30, even on Friday and Saturday nights (I just get a tad bit of extra sleep on the weekends). I do this to keep my schedule from getting totally out of whack...which it will, quickly if I let it.

Friday, I left work for Christmas vacation. I don't go back until January 2nd, so that gave me 11 straight days of not having to go to work. Yesterday (Friday), I went to bed semi-late (I think I stayed up until about 12AM), but I couldn't hang much longer since I got up at 5:30 Friday morning. Today, I slept solid until 9AM. I didn't force myself to get out of bed until I couldn't stay there any longer. I only did this because I knew I had time to get my schedule out of sync and back in before having to get back on my work schedule. Right now, I think, I'm in my body's natural cycle. With no obligations, I'm pretty certain I could go to bed around 1 or 2 every night and get up about 9. It simply feels more natural to me.
