The Early Bird
I am a morning person. Please don't hold it against me. Non-morning people don't always understand morning people. I understand, the way a normal person feels at 6:00 AM, grumpy and wanting to be left alone to hibernate, I feel like that at about 8:30 most evenings.
I am awake and starting my day by 6:00 - 6:15 most mornings. And I have not regularly used an alarm clock or clock radio in nearly 10 years. I discovered, by accident, that even without setting an alarm, I am up on time about 99 days out of 100. And it is so much nicer to not be jolted out of dreamland.
There are advantages to being early the trains are a lot less full at 7:30 than they are at 8:30. And baggage claim at the airport, was empty, mine all mine at 4:20 AM - thank you American Airlines for helping me learn that lesson - or maybe not.
Do you set an alarm?
