Recently, thanks to attrition and staffing woes, I’ve been training new coworkers (for what seems like eternity.)  Thanks to my new work schedule, I am often tasked with teaching at 7:30 a.m., but find myself less than capable in that particular capacity during those earliest hours.  I am not, sadly, a morning person, no matter how much I hate the thought of admitting that (the internet’s fascination with telling me if I’m a morning person or night person, a introvert or an extrovert or which Hogwart’s house I belong in bugs me on a very primal level.)  Still, given my choice, I’d be up until after midnight and awaken after noon, leading to today’s diurnal query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) hates getting up at 6 a.m. passionately, but enjoys that it means leaving work at 4 and so I live with it, asking: Do you consider yourself a morning person or night person?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I have no trouble waking up early, but I do like staying up late at night, so its difficult. On work days, I prefer going early, it means I can be done with it quicker and start doing things I actually like in the afternoon.

  2. I’ve always been a night person, I don’t know why. I’m just more energetic and feel much better at night, while being awake in the day, particularly early, makes me feel weird and uncomfortable. I simply can’t function as well in the day as I do at night, no matter how hard I’ve tried to train myself to do so.
