The July topic for the Artists Synchroblog is "Morning Bird/Night Owl". I'm definitely a morning person. I love to get up and get a ton of things done around the house or at the jewelry bench before anyone else is even awake if I can. I used to think this was because I liked to check things off of my to-do list....and that's true enough. But if I'm being honest, it goes a little bit deeper (and uglier) than that. I love to think that I've finished a million things and nobody else is even awake. As in, I'm SO FAR ahead of everyone else and it's only 6:30 am!
This drive to get up and get going is much worse on the weekends than during the work week. On weekends there is more flexibility in my schedule and I can stay at the jewelry bench for hours if I want to, and I love having that time to be creative while everything else is so still. If I have a lot churning through my head it's not uncommon for me to get up at 3 or 3:30 on the weekends...I just wake up and want to get started.
The downside to being such an extreme morning person is that I'm pretty much not fit for anything in the evenings beyond light cleaning and zoning out in front of the television or the computer. I get nothing productive done past 8pm...sometimes I don't even remember parts of conversations.
Lots of earrings. I'm really partial to the leaves; the color on them is my favorite.
