Being a morning person is like being a Hufflepuff. No one want to raise their hand and claim to be one. Yup, I know morning people make you night-owls out there want to vomit, but I am unabashedly one.
For one thing, I have trouble sleeping in the morning. But I really got in the habit of rising early so I could do whatever I wanted without competition. No big brother to fight with over what Saturday morning cartoon we would watch. No roommate to peek curiously at my awkward morning exercise routine. I love the idea that I get a piece of day no one else is using, and I can shape it however I want. Maybe that’s why my best writing is often done in the mornings. What about you?
