Monday morning, winter solstice

This poem has been taken down for submission to a publication. Apologies for the inconvenience.

        How do you force yourself out of bed on a workday -- overuse the snooze button? wake up to music? have someone else wake you up? take a hot shower?

I think about how I don't have to take the bus in the snow anymore. :)

Ugh... I hit the snooze like 4 times, and then finally drag myself out of bed and go straight to the shower. Sometimes I hit the off button instead of snooze, and then my dad luckily wakes me up and sometimes will drive me to the subway if I'm running too late.

...I really do hate mornings though.

Claudia said...

definitely overuse the snooze.
Also - beg for a ride in the mornings.

i hit the snooze two times max. then i usually put on a podcast so i have some simulation when i get outta the shower or else i'll just go back to bed. if i don't feel like showering my body, i just brush & wash my face to feel fresh & clean.

I set three alarms, one at 15 minutes before I have to get up, one at 10 minutes and one actually when I have to get up. The first one wakes me up so that I know the others are coming, but lets me sleep in just a little longer. :) And I have everything timed to a science so I have to be up at a certain time in order for my morning to not be too rushed.
