Waking Up Before Sunrise

I made it. I'm alive.

I actually made it to Heritage Hall for my 5:45am shift.

I could talk about how I knocked out right after my early morning shift. I literally fell asleep for the duration of my Introduction to Health Promotion course from 9:30 - 11am. I somehow managed to wake up as everyone was packing their bags to leave the classroom and I realized that I had completely slept through a mock quiz.

Or I could talk about how much fun my 5:45am - 8:45am shift had been. Today, I was stationed in the weight room at Heritage Hall. The football team was completely their early morning weight lifting workout and I was literally standing three feet away from Matt Barkley. I've never seen a group of guys with that much energy at 6:30am in the morning - everyone in weight room was screaming and getting pumped up for their workout. The energy was intoxicating. It made me want to work out with the guys.

I also had the opportunity to drive the Gator cart around campus today. It's the green cart that the athletic trainers will use to transport a player who has sustained a spinal injury off the field. The cart is pretty intuitive to drive, albeit slightly jerky. After watching other people drive the golf carts and segways around campus for all these years, now it's finally my turn!

I'm thoroughly exhausted. I might wind up knocking out again until ultimate frisbee practice tonight.
