The Perks Of Being A Morning Person

It's not as bad as it seems.

The Perks Of Being A Morning Person

When I walk into work, I am always super upbeat and ready to start my day. I look around at my fellow counselors and they are all still half asleep. Most are trying to down a cup of coffee to help them wake up before camp starts. I constantly hear, "I hate mornings," and I just don't get it. While most people my age are night owls, I am most definitely a morning person.

On any given day, I am awake and starting my day no later than 9:30 a.m. Otherwise, I feel like I've wasted the day. On days where I have a lot to do, I can wake up as early as 6:45 a.m. naturally. Being a morning person isn't all that bad!

Being a morning person is amazing when you have somewhere to be early in the morning, like work. There is no better way to wake up than naturally. There is just something about waking up on your own that allows you to feel less groggy. Not only does waking up less groggy give your day a better start but waking up without the use of an alarm gives a calmer start to the day. For me, there is no worse way to be woken up than by my phone violently vibrating under my pillow and some annoying noise playing in the background disrupting my sleep.

Another great way to start the day is by taking a shower. It's relaxing, leaves you feeling clean and makes getting ready a whole lot more simple. Having the time to shower in the morning is nice because it gives you the chance to really wake up while you're in there before you actually have to start getting ready.

Everyone loves to have a cup of coffee in the morning as a little pick me up. Morning people are no different. I see people chugging their coffee in order to wake up in any way possible before they have to start doing things. However, morning people are able to enjoy their daily cup of Joe because it is not necessary to function, it is just enjoyable to drink.

One downside from being up early every day is, it makes you go to sleep super early too. So last night's episode of "The Bachelorette" was sadly missed, but thanks to DVR and waking up early, there is plenty of time to watch that episode before anything else needs to be done.

This one may be a stretch, but the morning is a great time to get a solid workout in. There is never anyone else at the gym, which means no waiting for machines. There is no worry about whether you will have time to workout later because you've already gone. And people will be amazed you're dedicated to working out enough to wake up that early.

Some people may not understand how one can be a morning person, but that's fine because getting ready with no one else awake is so much better.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
