    What is it that you do during the morning (when you wake up until 12)?

    For me, during the summer I typically wake up around 5, shower, eat a light and healthy breakfast, go on a one hour jog, watch Regis and Kelly, clean up the house a bit, walk the dog around the neighborhood, and catch up with friends on iChat.

    You guys?

    I get up at 8.30am some morning when I haven't got a job interview. I then have breakfast, shower and then try to work or go on the web. Take my dog for a walk maybe. thats its. I do have to improve my routine.

    out of interest what time do you go to bed? if you get up at 5am. I would love to get up that early!

    During my summer job life (which is right now), I wake up at 25 to 7, make lunch, clean the kitchen, eat breakfast and then get a ride to work.

    Every workday:

    Wake up at 5:30am
    Make coffee for travel
    Get dressed and groom
    Pour coffee into travel mug and the rest into a thermos
    Pack up lunch
    Drive to work

    Once at work I log onto my PC
    Put lunch in the fridge
    Go back to PC for mass surfing hitting up usual sites, bloglines, gmail, yahoo mail, charter mail, Mac Rumors, TFW2005
    Check work email
    Look at trouble tickets
    Return to surf and or work trouble tickets until 11:30 when I usually take lunch
    And I repeat the surfing/trouble ticket thing for my entire workday.

    I get up around 9. Check the overnight happenings on MR while still in bed for an hour or so. Get ready, maybe have coffee, rarely have breakfast. Leave the house by 10.30 to get to uni by 11.

    On a weekday:

    6.30am: wake
    6.30-7.15am: shower/dress
    7.15-7.45am: listen to the radio, check a few websites, drink some juice and coffee.
    7.45: walk to bus stop
    7.50-8.00am: travel on bus into town
    8.00-8.10am: wait for second bus

    9.00am: swear at email

    Breakfast, etc. is a no-no. I really, really can't eat that early in the morning, and I don't care how fantastic a good breakfast is meant to be :)

    Pretty dull stuff, really!

    Well, during the summer, if I'm on the ball and haven't been out drinkin' the night before, this is my routine:

    5:30 - Wake up
    Spend the next hour walking around drinking water and cursing the sun for being awake as well.
    6:30 - Go running (distance and time depends on the day)
    7:30-8:30 (depends on the run length) - Shower, eat some breakfast

    Then I spend the rest of the morning hoping to catch Star Trek TNG reruns on TV while making calls and working on my internship stuff. Woo!

    Day typically begins for me at 3:00 a.m. (sometimes a bit earlier). I'll watch taped shows and some overnight news until 5 a.m. Then a shower, light breakfast and to the office for a workday that begins at 7.

    I usually wake up around 7:10 in order to make it to work by 8 a.m. I'll get up, shower, sometimes shave, iron my clothes, get dressed, and then leave for work. After I get to work, it's just checking Macrumors all morning, looking for something to read. :)

    However, since I'm rehabbing a surgically repaired left knee, sometimes the process shifts an hour earlier so I can make up for the hour of work I'm missing.

    I'm shocked that most of the replys have people waking up so early, dam I wish I can do that.


    Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri: (OFF on Wed and weekends :D )

    Fall asleep around 2:00-2:30 am
    Wake up at 9:30am
    Shower til 9:40am
    Get dressed til 9:45am (I wear a uniform to work)
    Be at work 10:00am

    Fill prescriptions from 10am-7pm (We are really slow sometimes, so I'm on the net most of the day)

    Come home work out, chill, and then do this all over again. I sometimes wish I could wake up atleast at 7:30am, and workout in the morning so I dont have to do it after work. But its sooo hard!!!
