Early Bird Day

After being given a deadline that left me only two days to work out some issues for a system that I hadn't looked at in awhile, I panicked and decided to come in early to work today. So at 7:15AM, I was pecking away at my keyboard, in a programming frenzy mainly made possible by a full cup of strong coffee gulped down in less than a minute.

But come to think of it, I think coming in this early is actually better for me. I skip all the morning traffic, get to work early when it's nice and quiet and there aren't too many people around, I can take a little bit of a break for lunch without sacrificing my goal of leaving before 5pm, so that I skip most of the evening traffic.

The only problem is actually getting my butt off the bed, especially with the weather the way it is in the morning, when all I want to do is stay in the warmth of my duvet. It usually takes me half an hour to finally drag myself out of bed. And it takes me the whole ride to work to actually wake up and get psyched about the day.


Well, it's after lunch and it's almost like it was this morning - everyone's out to lunch, so it's nice and quiet, and I can relax. It's a good motivator to know that I'm only going to be here about three more hours. Not that I hate work, but I always breathe a little easier at the end of each day. There's nothing like coming home after a full day. I always look forward to my evening activities, even if it's just getting a workout in at Bally's or Rockreation, or browsing the used CDs and DVDs at Second Spin.

My mother is coming to visit sometime in February though, and that will mean a break from my usual routine. Sometimes I get stressed out about this because I still like keeping some parts of my schedule as is, which means coming home late at least twice a week. But I so rarely get to spend time with her that it's kind of refreshing to be subjected to this kind of change once in awhile. I'm also looking forward to her visit because then I can probably go house- or apartment-huting with her while she's here.


Well, it's the end of my day. A little stressful, but I think I accomplished a lot. It's time to go home - I can tell that I'm going to have an early night tonight - my eyes are feeling a little tired and my body is telling me it's time to go home.
