Mornings have never really been a time that agrees with me. I have always tended to be much more at my best in the evening. If you have a quick look at the times of my journal entries you will see evidence of this. I find that I tend to come up with most of my ideas late at night and then I work on them late in the afternoon of the following day (or same day if you go by the clock as apposed to my sleep pattern). The majority of the time the only thing mornings are useful to me for is checking emails, reading news entries and eating breakfast.
Unfortunately the world is not keen on my ideas for how the day should be structured and as such it likes to give me things to do at silly times that are not emails, news or eating. In the case of university it likes me to have lectures. Now most of the time I find myself as one would expect at such a time, half asleep. Thursday mornings is different. I have one of the most wonderfully engaging and funny lectures I could imagine.
He is one of those people that's just a joy to listen to. He is very scatty, fast talking and a real wonder to behold. He also loves to mutter under his breath so I always ensure I sit within earshot. Today he came up with a little gem which I found particularly amusing given my state of drowsiness. He was talking about a PEST diagram which stands for “Political, Economic, Social, and Technological analysis”. He seemed to be getting a blank look back from people (again, not surprising given the time) so he asked “Anyone know what a PEST is? Other than a lecturer asking annoying questions at 9:30 in the morning”. I could not help but let out a little smile and then continue to ignore the question.
