- Lemony Snicket
After spending the last three days staying up until the late hours of the night with all my brothers, I also seek comfort in knowing I will be the first one awake the next morning. Don't get me wrong I love having everyone home, talking too loud and eating tons of food, but the morning hours I have alone definitely set the tone for how the rest of my day is going to be. After talking non-stop about the most random things until 4 am, it is nice to wake up and have my mom be gone for work and the only other thing awake be my dog. I can sit and drink my coffee and clear my mind for the day to come. With school fast approaching I will miss my drawn out mornings spent sitting on my back porch sipping coffee and reading Harry Potter leisurely, however my mom and I have a different kind of morning routine for the school year that also never fails to set up the rest of the day for success. Including not speaking until I have had at least one cup of coffee in me and watching the news, I can head to school ready to start the day (this does not mean that I am fully wide awake, no morning routine where I have to get up at 5 am could successfully prepare me for that). Whether it be a 5 am wake up call or Harry Potter on the porch, I definitely know how to spend my morning to help me have a good day.
