For me I am much more productive if I get up early, around 6 during the school year and 7 during the summer. Occasionally that is too early but then I will take a nap and everything works out. I'm not sure why I get more done when I get up early I just do. Also I can really tell a difference if I run in the morning too. I have much more energy and am actually awake. When I don't run early I tend to put it off then by the end of the day am too tired and don't do it. That is what works for me.
I know some people who are crazy night owls. My mom for one can stay up all night long working on things and being productive, not me. It hits midnight and I am done...time for bed. So why am I awake now when it is 12:15am? Well I decided to have coffee while I read my nutrition book at Panera. Now I am up and not really tired. That sucks because I need to go to bed so I can get up. Vicious cycle but it is my fault.
Tomorrow I am excited because I am going to go visit a couple of friends from high school. One I went to high school with and the other I met while I was in high school. We were all counselors at a leadership camp in New York together and since we are all from the St. Louis area have kept in touch. Each year if I am in town I make the trip to Fulton to see them. They were once campers and now they are the adults running the camp, scary!
When I look back at the places where I have met many of my friends I never would have expected that we would have stayed in touch or become such good friends. It takes a lot of work and luck. I think that you have to make the effort to keep in touch through talking, letters, facebook, or whatever you can do. Yet when you find true friends you can go without talking for months and then when you do it seems like you just talked to them yesterday. There aren't those akward so what are you up to...and what are you up to...then silence. Most of the time this is when I then begin to babble about random things.
I'll let you know how it goes
