After years of denial, I'm afraid its time I come out in the open. Not only was I keeping it from everyone I know, I was afraid to even admit it to myself.
The truth is friends, I . . . am a morning person!
Someone said that to me in college, "You're so lucky you're a morning person." "No, I'm not," and I didn't even know I was lying. But who was I kidding? I was the first person to show up at a 7am meeting and I was dressed in a pink skirt with my hair done and I was in a great mood. All the signs were there.
A few weeks ago I was talking with my students about how excited I was to sleep in until 8 and they informed me that was not sleeping in. And here's the clincher: In my heart of heart I really feel like sleeping in until 8 is wasting a good part of the day.
I don't leap out of bed at 5:30 am, but once I'm showered and dressed its really not so bad to be up. Its actually kind of nice. In an ideal world, I could wake up at 7 in the summer and 8 in the winter.
My name is Kimberly Thomas, and I am a morning person.
