Mornings Are Wack

*grumbles* Happy Monday. O__O (What’s happy about it? I know. I ask the same thing).

As y’all will often see, I post my blogs at like 2am sometimes. Not only am I most productive when it’s dark out, I don’t remember ever being an early-to-bed kinda person. My Mom told me I was born in the middle of the night. I can’t remember the exact time but it makes perfect sense. Even when I was little, I’d cry when I got sent to bed because I felt like I was missing something. I had the mentality that if I went to bed early, I’d be tardy for all the parties. What party at the age of 7? I’m not sure. Many a night, did I get my butt whooped before bed because I cried. In fact, I think I was born in the middle of the night.

Anywho, I’m a night owl. This is why I HATE mornings. I wake up TOO groggy and sluggish. I always snooze at least twice too. But after that, I almost fall outta bed in protest. I get outta bed most mornings, thank God for letting me see another day, and then proceed to scowl for at least 2 hrs.

I don’t understand morning people either. I take personal offense and affront to people who are cheerful in the morning. You see them on the bus. They’re the ones who come on and greet the bus driver with vigor and skip to their seats. I always pray these people don’t end up sitting next to me. Don’t come hopping your Mr. Rogers ass in my face before 11am. I was talking to someone on the phone one morning and I went

“*grumble grumble* How are you doing?”
Me: What??? AWESOME?!? It’s 9am. Uh uh. I gotta go. You are far too jolly at this time of day. *click*

Shoo. How can you be jolly in the morning? HOW?!?!? Adding to my disdain for mornings is the fact that I don’t drink coffee. I think coffee tastes like diet cough syrup and loss so I don’t partake. You can find me on my bus commute taking a nap. I bet there are many pictures of me floating around as people picture messaged their friends talmbout “See this chick on the bus KNOCKED OUT!” I bet in at least one of them, my mouth is wide open.

My brain just doesn’t function before 11am. So all you giddy morning people that try to have me, you know, talk, don’t take offense to my sharp side-eye. I’ll like you again at 11:01. Till then, leave me be and let me be great in my morning crankiness.

Maybe I just have a case of the Mondays. No. It’s the Monday Mornings, which are the worst. Because they are the longest time til the weekend. Am I alone in this? Who feels my pain?

    for some reason i'm a night owl AND a morning person. i just don't think sleep is that necessary. i take naps on occasion when i'm really, really tired. i'm not really a mid day person. i usually go to bed around midnight and wake up around 4:30 to hit the gym. i think the gym gives me energy till around 2ish then i get bored and restless. i would think that hardest part is actually getting out of the bed.

    Luvvie we are >here< on this issue! Oooh I can't stand a Chipper Charlie in the morning. I've recently changed jobs and I'm tryna make a good impression, yanno? But some of these folks come in here skipping at 8:30am, wanting to hold full on conversations. #NAWSUH I can barely keep my eyes open & finally got the caffeine monkey off my back, so I can't deal. I"m sure my responses sound something like "hrrrumphlemmelone".

    Oddly enough, though, the less sleep I get the more I can adjust to being a "morning person". I think my brain is just confused and goes into panic & assimilation mode tho, ha.

    Give me four hours of sleep, and I'm good to go. That's one thing I've always been able to do is function at whatever time and be ignificent as I do so!

    Ta-Da!!!! Behold my awesomeosity!!

    Oh my dear, Luvvie….I am definitely one of those jolly morning people you hate. I can get up at the crack of dawn with no problem. I have never hit a snooze button a day in my life and have a body alarm with goes off at least by 6am automatically. On the flip side, I don't do late nights. I NEVER see 1-4am.

    But you know what? No me gusta coffee either. I thought I was the only one. I thought turning 25 would change but but…nope!

    You know I'm not a morning person, but because of Twitter, I do find myself being chipper in the morning. I'm all "Good morning Tweeps" and whatnot. I don't say good morning to anyone at work though. LOL! My mom is also a morning person. I don't understand her. I got popped in the mouth many a morning as a child because she's be like "Rise & Shine, It's Morning Time" and I'd be like "I'm not on that today with you mom." At which point the pop would occur.

    I couldn't help it though. I do drink coffee now. Lately, I've been drinking tea. I don't rely on them, but they're a part of my routine and they both perk me up a bit.

    I feel you. I'm not mad if you scowl @ me in the morning. If you talk crazy to me b/c u sleepy though, you will get a swift piece of my mind. LOL!

    I can go either way, but people are always pissed when I wake up in the morning smiling. Though I do need coffee to get through the day.

    I am a morning person, the days that I stay till 1AM I literally stop to function at 4 pm. I love to just be alone for two hours in the morning, meditate read a powerful book or something. I am a mother of three girls and that morning time is just the time for ME. The rest of the day is too sliced around, I do not know where I go.
    Love your blog dear.
