Waking up is hard to do...

I hate waking up early. I would never do it if I didn't have to. I don't think that I could sleep til noon either, but 9AM sounds about right to me. Anyways, I got a up extra early becuase I will be driving to Chicago to referee a high school basketball tournament. It's just a JV tournament, but that doesn't mean coaches won't be on my ass all day. Hopefully I don't have to throw any coaches/parents/fans out for being obnoxious. But it''s probably wishful thinking... Anyways, I will be back later tonight, and will be sure to let all of my dedicated readers know how things went. Wish me luck!

I hate schedules...

I get confused a lot. I guess it's maybe because I have a tendency to be sort of obsessive compulsive. I am always looking at my schedule to make sure I don't miss anything (and I make sure I schedule a lot on my plate to keep me extra busy) and I always seem to be somewhere much earlier than I need to be. And when I say this, you might respond with, "Well... I'm always late and I wish I could be more on-time like you." No, that is wrong.
When I say early, I mean EARLYYYY. For example: If I have to referee a game at 6PM, I am usually there about 90 minutes ahead. That's an hour before I need to be. I'm usually there before any of the employees are. Any why do I constantly do this? Becuase I'm so afraid of being late... I have this feeling that I need to prove that I am worthy of being trusted to be on-time and presentable.
And yet I wonder where all of my time goes. It's spent waiting to get this started or going to this event. I hate it and I hate schedules. I wish I could be more "on-time".
