Big Blog Fridays #13 - The Early Bird Catches The Worm
Hello everybody, it's me, TheManFromMudos, and I'm here again today for another Big Blog Friday, or as I now like to call it, Big Blog Usually-on-Friday-but-occassionally-on-other-days-of-the-week. Yes, the observant amongst you will have noticed that today is Thursday. However, there is a perfectly logical explanation for this. You see, I'm going away tonight, and I won't be back until Sunday. So, I decided that instead of posting my blog late this time, I'm going to post it early instead.
Now, being early is not something which I do very often. I'm usually quite punctual for my affairs, or so horribly late that I simply don't bother turning up at all (although that's a very rare occurence, I'll admit). However, there is one area in which I've always been early, and that's getting up in a morning. For as long as I can remember (and according to some sources, i.e. my parents, since birth), I've almost always woken up before seven o-clock in the morning. Most of the time, it's around quarter past six, but it's also been as early as half past five on some mornings. And it's not like I'm sleep deprived, either, and I don't have insomnia. It's almost like there's a built in alarm clock in my head that gets me up at six everyday, without fail.
Here's an interesting fact about me that may surprise you: the latest time I have ever gotten out of bed was twenty past eight. Twenty past eight! For some people, that's the earliest they've ever gotten out of bed. And it doesn't depend on what time I go to bed, either. I go at nine, wake up at six. I go at ten, wake up at six. Even on New Year's Eve, stayed up 'till one, and guess what? Got up at six. And I've never actually met anyone else who does this. I don't want to think of myself as a freak of nature for my unique ability to awake at such an hour every day, but given that nobody else seems to do it, I don't know what to think anymore.
So I thought I'd ask you. Obviously, physically and mentally speaking, getting up at six o'clock every morning for my entire life hasn't had any negative effects on me. But it still seems a bit weird. So my question for you today is this: Do you know anyone else who gets up early, every day of every week of every month, without the aid of an alarm clock? Or do you yourself have an inexplainable 'built in' alarm in your brain that goes off at six o'clock every morning? Let me know, and I'll see you at the usual time next week. Goodbye!
