Why, oh why did I schedule myself to start work at 4:30??

I'm doing my own little version of "Nickel and Dimed" to make some extra money for a project I want to do. My first assignment has been pretty fun except for the big yellow tee-shirt and standing all day. This job is limited to the returning student rush so co-workers won't have time to take on the proportions of family and close friends as Barbara Ehrenreich points out in her book. That's the point - go in, get some extra money, leave and travel.

But starting at 4:30 in the middle of winter is working against my phototropic ways.
