See What’s Become of Me

Okay. So my workplace of choice runs on the rhythms of the technology industry. This means you shouldn't even think of showing up before 9 in the morning, because there ain't gonna be nobody there, and the real crowd only comes in sometime between 10 and 11. I'm part of the real crowd.

On the other hand, perhaps because I just came over from the East Coast, I'm not really in the mood to be staying up late. So I've been in bed by 11 every night, sometimes by 10. My alarm I've been setting for 7:30, but that feels a little late, so I may dial it back to 7.

These two facts are kind of incongruous when juxtaposed. I've never done this before and it feels very strange indeed.
