I came across this really cool article. All of the answers I’ve been looking for… laid out. Don’t trip, I’m not gonna try to convert you to Scientology or The Plan. It is an article that touches on the differences between night people and morning people (or rather, cool people and evil people).
I am a night person. The rest of America… morning people.
Getting to work on time everyday has been a little bit of a challenge lately. I’m on a modified schedule until the end of the year, so I start an hour later, which is at 9:30am. Let’s just say I don’t get to work right at 9:30am every morning, and leave it that. No need to get specific.
The article talks about some things you can do to change your natural circadian rhythm, which I have attempted, but its no work for Himbo, okay.
It’s okay, I have a solution. If you cant beat'em… move to Spain.
You see, the Spanish know wassup.
9:00am-ish: Wakeup and head to work, but not before stopping for breakfast, which is really just an espresso and maybe a pastry.
3:00pm-ish: SIESTA TIME! Take at least 3 hours for a looong lunch and A NAP.
…Dude!! That’s brilliant!
5:00pm-ish: (And not a minute sooner): Mosey on back to work and eventually close shop.
9:00pm rolls around: Eh… we should start thinking about dinner.
11:00pm-ish: Dinner time, which really means: go to a bunch of different bars and restaurants for tapas y vino!
1:00am-ish (optional): Party like a rockstar til 6 in the mornin!
Notice how Spanish time ends with “ish”. Nothing’s “sharp”. That’s how I roll.
I’m part Spanish; so I inherited my circadian rhythm. T'was passed down to me, t'sin in me genes. I need to remember that so I can tell my boss the next time I’m reminded of my official start time.
…or just move to Spain before I get fired.
