So what's the first thing/things you do in the first 10 minutes you get out of bed?
I immidiately light a cigarette, smoke it and then proceed to take a leak and other things in the bathroom.
How bout you?

- Wake up
- Piss
- Make coffee
- Drink coffee & catch up on GAF notifications
- Make another coffee
- Drink 2nd coffee & smoke 2-3 cigarettes
- Take a shit & continue reading GAF
- Have a wank (optional)
- Do some work
- Smoke another cigarette
- Shower

That’s a bit more than 10 minutes, but you get the drift.

I like coffee and cigarettes but I do not need them to wake up. I prefer coffee in the afternoon and a cig occasionally with a beer.

Workdays:
  1. Prepare breakfast (microwaved oatmeal, fruit, coffee, water)
  2. Eat breakfast while watching a 20-30 minute show.
  3. Shower, brush teeth.
  4. Go to work.
No deviation is allowed from these procedures.

Days off are more relaxed and drawn out but generally consist of the above with some videogames thrown in.

I try to set my intention for the day and then think of 3 things I'm grateful for. I used to do it consistently, but I've been slacking off lately.

  1. Wake up to alarm
  2. Hit snooze every 10 minutes for about a half an hour
  3. Quickly check emails to see if there are any IT disasters happening at work that need immediate attention
  4. Shower, brush teeth and undergo general prep to appear presentable
  5. Usually throw a few darts despite already being late for work - I can't explain this one, but since I started playing, I feel better starting my day knowing my throw is intact
  6. Pet cat a few times
  7. Drive to the train station, commute to the city
  8. Stop for coffee and a banana before strolling into work about an hour late
Yeah, I'm not so good at the morning thing...

Current mornings are one of these:

A. Get woken up by infant son at 6am

Or

B. Get woken up by dog rubbing his head on my hand if its overhanging the edge of bed or staring at me whimpering resting his head on edge of bed at 630am.

Followed by:

Wake up 2yr old son at 7am.
Struggle to get a minute to eat/pee/change
Drive to work, daycare, and doggy daycare(sometimes) at 8am.

Pee
let the dog out
poop
then get ready for CrossFit and pack my bag for work after.

My dog has an annoying habit that if I don't let her out before I poo, she will pee or poo in the house while I am in the bathroom. That is why I break them up lol

I’m jealous of all these people who seem to poop like clockwork as soon as they wake up. Must be nice going to work knowing your asshole is gonna be fresh and clean all day.

My dumps are often spread out at different times, or multiple gargantuan dumps in one day followed a day or two to rebuild.

Training and consistency.

And hatred of shitting in public toilets.

Brush teeth, shower, grab my kurig, get ready to go. I sleep about 4 hours a day so I get up at the very last minute.

For real though, it's more go get/drink water, then piss/shit, then usually shower followed by something light to eat to get started up. Music, food and shower are all needed to fully wake up.

What's weird in that? I spend an hour every morning in the toilet. It's not like I'm pooping for one hour straight
Can you walk after? My legs would be dead.

I once lived in a place with side-by-side toilets (with a wall in between, relax) and me and a mate had a Mario Kart DS session whilst dual shitting. I couldn’t walk after.

Nowadays, I just drop my business, have a wank and then exit the scene. Much better on the legs.

Coffee table next to the toilet (with actual coffee!) is weird. Not gonna lie. Sounds comfortable, though.

I don’t judge. I have my weirds too.

Yes, I can walk just fine😂It is indeed comfortable because 1- I am fixing my mood in complete silence and 2- I gradually start waking up my brain

Wake up with a jolt of agony as I regain consciousness, quickly remembering who and where I am.

Stretch and flex as pain gives way to sensation and a lingering dull ache all over.

Feed the rabbit that has realised I am awake and hopped onto the bed for attention and parsley.

Allow wife to get past me to use the toilet while I make the bed. Check phone while I wait for her to let me know she's finished

Go to bathroom.

Have a wee.

Use deodorant in winter, shower in summer.

Brush teeth.

Fix hair.

Go to kitchen, eat breakfast.

Talk to wife.

Brush rabbit, clean out his bedding, feed him his full breakfast, change his water.

Wash hands and face.

Floss, use mouthwash.

Go to work or whatever Ive got planned on weekends.

Wake up hungover and tired yet somehow physically wake myself up before my alarm goes off with the subtle thoughts of why I'm alive and why I hate everything that is morning.

Silently ninja into the bathroom to take 2-3 rabbit like shits as for some reason I can't take one so it's a delicate dance of poop....think I'm done, ready to brush my tee.....here comes number two.....and so on.

By about the second or third completion I'm ready to start my morning with a spark of creativity



Bush the teeth

Now less hateful of the world, sing and dance a few shower jigs on my way to cleanliness (Cruel Cruel World is a regular)

Dry off as my 3 cats furiously contend for the toilet seat so that I may scratch their chin while I dry off

Get dressed as I still do my best to avoid any human contact at the earliest possibility as my wife wakes up the happiest person in the world and me completely the opposite her happiness grates on my evil-morning-loathing

Drive to work with my morning Monster drink as I tell my coworkers if it wasn't for all that sugar I wouldn't be so sweet to them.
