Now that I’ve lived on the west coast for a few days, I’m quickly realizing what the toughest part of this is — the time zone.
I’m a night owl, so I figured it would work out great since 3AM on the east coast is only midnight on the west coast. What could possibly go wrong with this plan?
Well, let me tell you — going to bed at 3AM on the east coast is the same as going to bed at… 3AM on the west coast. And going to bed at 3AM on the west coast is the same as going to bed at 6AM on the east coast. And therein lies my problem.
When I lived on the east coast sleeping in till 10AM wasn’t a big deal, since it’s only 7AM on the west coast. When you’re sleeping in till 10AM on the west coast, it is a big deal, because it’s 1PM on the east coast.
How do you west coasters handle this problem? Do all of you get up early, completely ignore time zones, or something completely different?
But it’s okay, I have a brilliant, fool-proof plan. Starting tomorrow I’ll get up at 5:30AM every morning, go to the gym, and start my day by 7:30AM. What could possibly go wrong?
Why can’t we all be more like Gary, getting up at 5AM, having four full time jobs, and being married all at the same time?
