Can't really convert my multitudes of thoughts into words, so let's go for an easier post. Happy Friday5!

1. What are the first things that you do in the morning to start your day? Wake up, go to my computer, check my e-mail, read my daily webcomics and about 8 other webpages to see what's new since I went to sleep, shower, and eat a toasted poppyseed bagel with cream cheese while drinking orange juice and reading the newspaper. This isn't set in stone exactly, but that's how I like it. It takes about 90 minutes when done well. (And in case you're wondering, yes, I know I'm addicted to the internet.)

2. What are the last things that you do at night before going to bed? After the whole hygiene thing, I usually get in bed and then cue up my Discman to play one song. Different song each night. I haven't done this that often lately, though. I should get back in the habit. It's really nice to sum up the day's thoughts with 4 minutes of music.

3. What daily routine have you recently added to your day? Checking the Phillies' box score when I get back to my room in the evening, assuming I missed the game. Yeah, baseball season!

4. What routine do you wish you get rid of? It would be nice if I can shorten the morning routine a bit; move some of the stuff to later in the day. Because spending almost 2 hours getting ready in the morning is great when you have to be at class at 11, but not so great when you have to leave the house at 8:15 to be at work on time...

5. What's the one thing that makes you feel like something is missing if you don't do it some point within your day? Um, eating?
