The Early Bird Gets ..... Tired.

I am having an identity crisis. At times it feels like I am trying to live 7 different lives at once which takes a toll on my wee little brain. Everyday for the next week I will be featuring one of my 7 lives

Life 1: The Girl Who Opens the Gym

I have kept this job for an entire 4.5 months .... that's about 2 months longer than I had anticipated quite frankly. When I applied to work at The Ogden Athletic Club, I had no idea the only shift they had available was the "you-would-have-to-be-crazy-to-wake-up-this-early-shift." I consider myself to be a morning person, but this is pushing it. My shift starts at 4:00 a.m. and I am responsible for opening the club for all the crazies who want to exercise at 4:30 in the morning.

As members walk by, they feel the need to say some of these wonderful phrases:

"Wow, you look really tired." I hear that one on an average of 4.3 times per day ... and it's usually the same people who say it. I consider myself to be a pretty good actress and I put on a "I'm awake, happy, bubbly, perky" show every time anyone walks in the front door ... I should definitely be nominated for an Oscar.

"Wake up!" Is that phrase supposed to be funny? I may have given people a courtesy laugh the first few times I heard that one, but now it is getting a tad old.

"How are you?" You may be thinking ... what's wrong with a friendly "how are you" ... I'll tell you what is wrong with it ... the guy who says it with a creepy smile and lingers just a little too long at the front desk ... that is what is wrong with it. My creep-o-meter goes off whenever he is around. I'll be watching America's Most Wanted for your story to be featured buddy!

My goal is to be able to last at this job for at least 6 months ... wish me luck.

Okay, the creep-o-meter thing made me laugh my guts out. Let me know when he's featured on the show. ha ha

Good luck on the whole six month thing.

You would never have met your guardian deer if not for this job. The little herd will be with you for a couple more months. You can do it!
