My Latte Factor

I am not a lazy person. I enjoy setting challenging goals and taking on too many tasks and responsibilities, and I almost always get my projects done on time. But I have a not-so-secret secret: I L.O.V.E. to sleep in. That extra 7 minutes of sleep I get after hitting the snooze button is like heroin to me. I have tried placing my alarm clock on the other side of the room - I just get back in bed. I have tried multiple alarms - I just hit them each and go back to sleep. I have tried setting the clock fast - I just do the math. I hate to get out of bed in the morning.

This habit is starting to cost me big money. I have started sleeping past train time in the morning, which is causing me to pay for gas and parking at school. Even on days when I would have to drive anyway, I sleep in too late to park in the city and ride the train a couple of stops to campus. It is really starting to tick me off.

So, "in public" I am committing to ride the train every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and to park on a surface street every Monday and Tuesday. If you know me (and if you are reading this then you probably do, because this is not the world's most popular blog) then I need you to exert peer pressure. Text me or call me or ask me a question on facebook randomly to make sure I am availing myself of the free public transportation options I have. And if I am wasting my money at the campus parking lot - mock me. Mercilessly. Because I deserve it.
