The early bird catches the worm

As most people know, I am not a morning person. I normally have a leisurely start to the day and arrive into work about 9:30am. Therefore it’s also safe to conclude that my brain doesn’t work in the morning.
But for some reason my exam starts at 9am. Ouch! This means my brain must be firing on all cylinders for an ungodly hour of the morning.

There is only one thing for it, I must get up early and do maths before I go into work.
The idea is that by the end of the week I’ll being doing an hour of maths practice before work. I have also learnt from my two latest practice exams I need to improve my pacing. The recommended way of achieving this through undertaking timed sessions of twenty questions. So might as well combine the two aims.

Lets See how this goes….
Day 1: Alarm went off at 7am. Managed to get myself organised (even included breakfast) and sat at my computer to maths at 8 am. Score! Half hour later maths questions done. Right now’s time for work. But it was a real struggle specially getting up at the 7am. Hopefully, this will get easier. Getting my brain to work wasn’t too bad, only one silly mistake. But not a bad start to this experiment.

Will let you how the rest of the week works out. To help with day 2, need to put myself to bed at a reasonable hour….mmmm will see how that goes.

day 2
Today was much easier. It was easier to get up earlier and my brain was less foggy. Downside, thought I had a 9am meeting which required me to be in early. So found out to get the hour I need for studying I need to be to ready with testing at 8am, none of this i need to set-up my computer stuff. Net result ten questions done rather than twenty. Lets see how tomorrow goes.

day 3

Ok that was painful. Did manage to have breakfast and do maths, just not an hours worth. Ok- let’s see how we do tomorrow.

day 4
Epic fail. The alarm went off and I refused to move. Slight problem when wanting to do maths in the morning.
What’s even worse was I went to bed early the night before. Well bed 1 maths nil.

day 5
Much better, got out of bed, done 15 maths questions. Much better than yesterday. Might have been due to the wine and curry the night before.
