I used to pride myself at being able to sleep super late. I could be known to sleep until 2:30 in the afternoon with ease. It was glorious. I was a master sleeper.
Then came my senior year of college. I have never been busier in my entire life. I mean it. I had class starting at 9am every day and I would be lucky if I got home before 11:30 at night. Class, rehearsal, writing, directing, being someone’s friend, the list went on and on. So, I took it upon myself to get up early so I could have some quiet time. I am a very introverted person. I absolutely need my personal time without anyone else there. This meant I got up around 5:30 every morning. I got to sit in my bed for forever and then shower when I wanted and then get ready as slowly as physically possible.
It sounds like a great way to have a productive day, but it is a terrible habit that I’ve formed. I haven’t slept past 9am in probably over a year. That means I’m always tired. I still go to bed super late, but my body has decided I have become an adult and need to get up early now. It’s the worst.
