You're Getting Older...

I hit the wall at 10 o'clock. The next two hours are hazy. By midnight I am done. Posting this blog took my last bit of energy. When I go to bed in two minutes I will fall asleep instantly.

But I wake up at sunrise and could get up then if I wanted - and maybe it is time I should.

This whole conversion is somewhat jarring. I have never been a morning person and assumed I never would be. The whole early to rise, early to bed thing is a microcosmic metaphor for getting older, as you find new powers and joy in things you never would have imagined while simultaneously losing the former pleasures and abilities you used to hang your hat on.

Dude, the early to bed, early to rise life is so great. Have fond memories of a different time - but glad you're joining because it is awesome.

As I've gotten deeper into my 20's I've enjoyed getting up earlier and earlier.
