Driving to Work...

Nothing like getting to work early!

(man, this blog stuff is hard... I think about something to write but I don't always do it and the next thing I know it's tomorrow... and tomorrow... and tomorrow!)

I have 8am classes which is not usually good for me. I often stay up late working, reading, etc. and I don't get up well in the morning. I do the two-step alarm tango. Hit the sleep or ignore my watch the first time. By the time I get up I have to jump in the shower and race to work just to make sure I get there in time to work in my class at 8am.

Not good!

This quarter I swore I'd try and change it. I read somewhere that if someone really wants to change something in their life, they need to do for at least three weeks. Anyone change do something a couple of times. If you can get yourself to do for three weeks, then you have a real shot at change.

So, I've been making my self get up when the alarm goes off. I still don't eat breakfast but I'm used to that. I just bring something with me. There is such a huge difference in traffic between 7-7:15am and 7:30am. As long as I leave before 7:20 it's a cinch. No traffic backups and I get to work about 20 minutes early which is nice.

We'll see if I can keep this up!
