SO in the morning when you get up and need to go to work, assuming that there is not a massively important meeting*, can you get to work at a specific time?

Does your morning disintegrate into: yes, don’t have to be at work for two… three hours; I can make my breakfast; nice breakfast, coffee, toast; Ooooooooooh; what shall I have, I know Ham… no… peanut butter, CHEEEEEESE. Oh right, check the fridge the door is DEF. closed. Okay, toast. Got toast got breakfast. Right – tele on. Pick a tv programme – pick a movie? Computer on. NEWS! Watch telly; play on computer; write fic. Oh, eat breakfast. Ao3. Dreamwidth. LJ. Tumblr. Write fic. Checks watch. Loads of time. Work in 1.5 hours. This is doable. PotterPOtterPotter. Whoops. Time for ablutions. Cleanliness. Clothes. What clothes? Those clothes. SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIITE – pick default. Packed Lunch? Food – yes. Okay, fridge. Did you prep something on Sunday for the rest of the week? No/yes. Procrastination/distractibility linked to this decision on Sunday. Check time. DAMNITALL TO HELL. Move fast. What about the dishes? Leave them. No/yes – depends. Check clock? DAMN IT ALL TO HELL. Got to get out of the house. Packed lunch. Excellent packed lunch constructed. Check clock. Buggery! Gather up detritus. Shall I water the plants yes/no? Maybe.

Is the gas burner off? IS the fridge door closed? Is the telly on/ Checks. Did you check the gas burner? Check. Glance at clock. OMG. You’ve got to leave. Looks at dishes in sink. Hey, that floor could do with a vacuum.


Rinse and repeat every single *&*%ing morning, for my entire adult life. I had a parent chivvying me out the door as a small person.

Does anyone else do this?

* massively important meeting? 75/25 chance you’ll be on time. You’re not going to be early - ever.

I can never have breakfast. I have to either be at work at 4:45 am, 5 am or 6 am unless I work nights, then it becomes, "do I have time for dinner?" with work either starting at 7 pm or 11 pm.

Also, I miss watching TV again. My sister hasn't paid the cable bill so we've been without TV for the last 2 or 3 months.

Oh. Okay. In the case, I can only seem to organize my time at night. During the morning I feel like I'm rushing, no matter how early I wake up to start my day.

Yes this seems familiar. I regularly seem to loose an hour or two after getting up doing not anything in particular. If I don't want to have that happen I have to do all preparations the evening before: assemble lunch to take with me and prepare some breakfast I can just take out the fridge or assemble quickly, preselect clothes, pack my bag with all that is not food, so that I do not have to decide anything and have just minimal tasks. Usually I then also showered in the evening so that cleanliness effort is less.

And then on top of all that I have to refrain from any fannish media consumption or social media, definitely can't allow myself to turn of the computer, and at most take a quick look at the news on my tablet, but better to avoid that too.

Ha. Yes. Me. Totally me. It's getting on the computer that does it ... if I can just keep from checking my social media, things are okay, but if I get on Tumblr or DW, all is lost.

Lol! I joined the military at 16 so being late for work doesn't compute. On work days I have a strict routine in the morning which I don't deviate from. On non-work days though I'm a mess, can't make a decision for love nor money. I could read a book all day and forget to meet someone for lunch...

If I check my email, I'm DEAD. so yes, the shiny is SOOOO distracting. But I'm also bad at organizing DURING the day as well so....

No, because otherwise I'd never be at work... ;)

I can't let myself be this way because otherwise I would never leave my flat in mornings. It's all - get up, bathroom, drink a cup of milk and off you go for me... :/
