I realized something today. Something that made me do a Keanu-style "whoa".
I got up pretty early today to head out and run a bunch of errands. I had a great time; the weather was lovely, as the sun hadn't been out for too long and it wasn't burn-i-nation out, not much traffic on the roads... yep, perfect.
... Perfect? Morning?
I'm a MORNING PERSON?
I sat at a stoplight, stunned. Me, who HATES mornings, who would rather eat a cactus than get up before 8:00 for non-essentials.
It's true. I used to love staying up late and watching movies or what have you, but I just can't stay up like I used to. Even on a day where I'll sleep in (to 9:30-ish) once 10:30 hits, zzz. See ya!
I now find it much more fulfilling to get up, get out there early in the gorgeous pre-10:00-hot weather when no one's out and enjoy the morning. This is a big change for me.
I'm even planning on getting up early tomorrow -- yes, the official start to Memorial Day weekend, when everyone and their MOM is gonna be out and ... going to the beach -- and head out there myself around 8:30. I'm hoping to beat the rush and that most people will be travelling tomorrow morning. We'll see, I'll let you know how that goes.
I'm also almost ready to start my 52 self-portrait project! I've taken my first set of photos and narrowed it down to a few I like, so I'm going to think on it and likely post them during the weekend once I clean my Flickr account up. I need to think of a good name for the project, too. Not just "sum piktrs" or the ever generic "Project 52". Something ... fun, biff, pow!, like that!
But now, I need a nap, because I got up early.
