Early Bird

{Sunrise over the Cape Cod canal last weekend.}

Happy Tuesday!

Wait, where did Monday go? 

Actually, where did my weekend go? You mean tomorrow's Wednesday?

I'm a little behind, as you can see. 

Maybe it has something to do with seeing a few too many sunrises in the last few days.

But then again, daybreak is my favorite part of the day. It makes me feel inspired and motivated and ready to take on whatever may come my way. It's funny how I've turned into an early bird after living most of my life as a night owl. In college, I thought nothing of regularly staying up till 2 AM, laughing with friends, writing papers, or socializing at the local watering holes. Now, I can barely keep my eyes open past ten each night. I consider it a victory to make it through prime time television. However, I usually pay for it the next morning when I'm craving that extra hour of sleep. 

At the ripe age of 25, I feel like I'm going on 80 some nights. Actually that paired with the fact that I look forward to my oatmeal and tea for breakfast each morning at work makes me feel more like 85. A snappy and hip 85, but still an old geezer.

Are you an early bird or a night owl?


  1. For the most part, I'm an early bird....(and I'm still in college...that's sad)
    I'm always the first to leave a party, and most nights I'll be asleep and my friends will still be texting or calling..
    I guess I'm a bit of an old geezer, myself.

    1. My friends always text me, and I tell them if it's after nine, don't expect a reply until 5 am :)

  2. I am an early bird. I often find myself wide awake when I want to sleep in. Crazy!

    I was also the opposite while in college. Funny how these things happen!
