A few months ago, I remember telling God that under no circumstances would I be accepting a teaching job in which I was going to have to wake up during the morning 5 o'clock hour. Since schools in Chicago start at 9 am, with most teachers rolling in around 8:30, I thought it wouldn't be a problem.
I guess I should have been a little more specific with my
But alas, you will find my alarm going off every weekday during that most awful hour. And yes, it has gotten easier, and yes, I am used to it, but I cannot wait for the day that my next/better/eventual job lets me sleep in until at least 6 am.
Reasons anyone should be up before 6 am:
- You have an early morning flight to an awesome destination and booked your flight so early out of excitement, not necessity.
- It's Christmas. [I can totally get on board with this one. Feel free to wake me up at any hour if it means the celebration starts earlier!]
- You voluntarily stayed up all night and are now on your last few hours of that all-nighter, after which you will sleep until 6 pm.
That's it folks. Those are the only good reason to be up that early.
...and yet, 5:25, I'll see you in the morning. [And probably again on Saturday because the 5 o'clock hour has the ability to haunt me like that.]
