I remember a time when 9:00PM was just a kind of dark mid–afternoon by my internal clock…a time when being awake before midday was blasphemy, and going to bed before 4:00AM was the same.
Those days are gone.
Lectures and tutorials at 9:00AM and 10:00AM every day means battling with peak–hour traffic on the freeway and the coast (neither appears immune these days), which means allowing a good hour–and–a–bit for travel, which means getting up at 6:30AM or 7:30AM to compensate.
Clearly, I’m yet to adjust. But I have the feeling that I’ll have to do just that —adjust—to survive.
