The Early Bird

I am reminded of a popular saying, though I don’t know whose brilliant words they are. Perhaps Aristotle, Socrates, Einstein, William Shakespeare, Confucius, or maybe Stephen King. Or it has no origin and caught my eye on the internet. It’s hard to tell. I’m off topic. Here’s the quote:

“The early bird gets the worm- But the early worm dies a brutal death.”

I think, this morning, I am a worm.

And it’s just going to get worse, because starting in exactly a week, I’ll be having to get up earlier than I got up today, for six months straight. Ick. I am not a morning person.

Nothing that some coffee wouldn’t cure, right?

Wrong. Coffee that early in the morning upsets my stomach.

Organic energy shots are another thing, but they’re expensive and downing them twice a day breaks the bank, but if that’s what it takes to stay sane, that’s what it takes.

So, this last week and a half before school starts I am conditioning myself to wake up earlier, so that it won’t be such a shock on my body. As you can tell, I have managed to drag myself to the computer- even managed to chow down on some breakfast, but I have not managed to dredge up anything real interesting to write about. But I found out this overheating computer works better in the morning cold. So I have time to write. I think I’ve worn out its limit- and mine.

Unfortunately, I can shut off this computer, but I cannot go back to bed.

Oh energy shots, oh energy shots, why must thee be so expensive?

I’d sell my arm to afford more- if I wasn’t going to school for massage therapy. I think I need both arms for that.

Well, good early morning everyone. Tomorrow’s going to be even earlier.

Sigh.

  1. Well good morning to you Stacey, those 6 months will be over in the blink of an eye. Good luck on your launch of the novel

  2. usually – not always – i don’t think of things to write about. things happen. i see them. i either very much like or do not like what i see. that’s something to write about.
