well, my morning routine consists of, tumbling out of bed,
peeing for 5 minutes! (i have a small bladder, it's my alarm
clock) then searching for my cigarettes, having a cigarette,
making coffee or tea, if my amazing best-friend hasnt done so already
waiting for coffee! :laughing: while waiting i usually stumble around the house,
petting & feeding my cats, they are the loviest in the morning,
they follow me about, purring & meowing, and i swear, smiling
then i sit down with my coffee and write my "morning pages"
which is an excercise i do everyday, what it is, is very
simple and very rewarding:
you first buy a loose-leaf notebook, then every morning,
when you are awake enough to focus you sit down with
it and write your stream-of-conciousness thoughts down, no
editing, no thinking, just thoughts. those first
thoughts that come when you wake up, whether they be,
man, i look horrible today, or, i hate mornings!! or whatever
you just go with the flow of your mind, and get all of it
out so it doesnt prevent you from having a bad day
you dont show it to anyone, or critisize it, or anything,
it's just there to help clear your mind.
it sounds like an easy enough thing to do, but believe me,
it took me a few years to settle into this routine, but it's
i found out about it through a book i have called:
The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron
and then, after that, i drink 2 cups of coffee, and smoke a lot,
try to wake up (it takes me about an hour to two hours to
fully wake up) :confused2
then i am off to my job, which i do here in my home
i write for a living, and i love it.
sooo, what are your mornings like, and what does everyone
do for a living?
