turning tricks and treats

As much as I hate to admit it, I have learned a few tricks from my brother. When I was 12, he taught me to wake up without an alarm. All I needed to do was to focus on the time, the specific number, in my head and repeat it like a litany. It works, every time. Unfortunately it’s also worked a little too well since I’ve been waking up at 3 this week to finish the video and now I’m up…

When I worked at the gym, I had the opening shift so I had to wake up no later than 4 in the morning in order to get dressed, drive over there and open the place up… When I started, the members (not the staff) told me that it was a high-turnover job. I lasted eight months, which was seven months longer than the girl who preceeded me. And in all that time, my body clock failed me only twice… Since there was no one on the road, I would usually clock in at 80 mph and I was never caught. I was never caught for other things, like drinking protein shakes and eating mint-chocolate protein bars… The pay was crappy and well, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do…
