Bed to desk.. how long?

Most mornings I roll out of bed somewhere near 5:00 am and am sitting at my desk ready to work by 7:00 or 7:30. Between those times I workout, shower, maybe check a sports score or two, travel to work, etc. Somedays it can take a little longer if I have a long workout or if I spend too much time reading the dope…

How long does it take you to go from bed to employer time?

Right at 55 minutes and I have a 45 minute commute. Yes, I am serious and that usually includes a shower unless I need to make up time.

Out of bed at 5:30 (thank god I can sleep in now!), out the door at 6, at my desk at a quarter til.

7:15 to 8:15am and that includes the 15 minute drive to work. I’m not one for screwing around in the morning.

I’ve been taking a longer, but much more pleasant, commute of late. So I get up at 6:00 and am at my desk by 8:45 (that includes a stop at a deli for a quick breakfast).

Up at 6:00. At the train station somewhere between 7:10 and 7:20. At the office usually either 10 or 20 minutes before 8.

I wake at 6 AM, drink coffee (<~~thiis is a must!), feed the cats, let the dogs out, wash my face, brush my teeth, am on my bike by 7AM. It usually takes me a smidge over an hour to ride the 13 miles to school, so I’m there by 8 AM. Then I take a shower and change clothes in the locker room and am at my 9 AM class by 8:40 AM. I leave extra time in case I get a flat or have a strong headwind.

I’m like Shagnasty in that I can roll out of bed at 8:30 and be at work by nine, with a 20 minute commute, but I prefer not to.

Ideally I like to get up around 7:30 and leave at 8:30 to get there by 9. But most days it’s more like get up at 8 AM.

TV news clicks on about 4:45. I’m out the door between 5:20 and 5:30, depending on how long it takes the dog to pee and poo. If I don’t have to stop for gas, I’m waiting for the B gate to be opened at 6, and I’m unlocking the office door by 6:05. I’m almost always first, and our offices are locked with spin dials - electronic combination locks. Depending on whether I screw up or not, it takes about a minute to open, sign the sheet, disable the motion sensor, and turn on all the lights. No, I don’t make coffee.

Two different patterns depending on the day of the week.

Practice days: Roll out of bed at 4:50am, got to practice from 5:30am to about 7:30am, home by 8:00am to work by 9am or 9:30am sometimes.

Non-practice days: Alarm goes off at 6am, hit snooze 'til 8-ish, get to work by 9am-ish.

My commutes only about 15 minutes but I waste time reading and petting the cats.

Can I play, even though I don’t have a desk and don’t have to be in until 11am? I’m a night owl, so I would prefer to sleep in until about 11 or 12, so I think I can play. :wink:

Up at 8, shower, straighten out the kitchen while drinking coffee, maybe watch TV or read the Dope, try to shake all the sleep off, drink more coffee, get dressed and made up, gather my purse and keys and leave at 5 minutes to 11. I walk. My workplace is only a block away. :stuck_out_tongue: If I’m feeling particularly ambitious, I’ll head out and run some errands at around 9:30, and grab some Tully’s coffee. But I’m not usually that ambitious.

I used to be much faster, but these days, I’m up by 4:00, engage in some coffee-talk with Mr. K, do some chores, make his lunch, take a bath, do my hair and make-up, get dressed, watch the news, and clock in at 8:00. But I only have to walk about 6 steps from the couch to the desk.

Up at 5:30, out the door at 7:10 (After the army, my wife and I consider it our sacred right to take our time in the morning.), get to my library and study for an hour before clocking in at 9.

I’m a “nester”. I don’t like to get to a location and jump right into work, even if I’m familiar with the place. That hour of study (a)helps me stay caught up in class and (b)prepares me for the job.

Well, currently, I have a 15-minute commute, so I get up at 10:40 a.m., and arrive at my desk at 11:20.

This is in sharp contrast to my restaurant days, when I lived five minutes away from work. Woke up at 11:15, clocked in at 11:30.

I dislike downtime between getting ready for work and leaving. What am I gonna do with ten minutes to sit around my house in my work clothes? Might as well hit the road as soon as possible.

Shift roster, so everything changes from week to week.

But generally I’ll get up about 2 hours before I need to start work, spend an hour getting dressed/ready (including eating breakfast and watching a bit of TV or surfing the dope) then I’ll leave about an hour before work starts. That’ll usually get me in about half an hour before I’m due to log on the phones, which I use to set up my PC and log in my systems.

That said, now that we’re in a fixed desk situation rather than hotdesking, I can leave most of my apps open and I’ve taking to leaving home about 40 minutes before I start, which gives me a five minute login buffer.

The day I consider sleeping till 5:30 AM “sleeping in,” is the day I give permission for anyone to shoot me in the head.

Currently, I’m up at 6:15 (blech) , out the door at 6:50, and at work a little before 7 (I don’t actually have a desk.) But I can cut that down, but I like to watch a bit of Angel on TNT in the morning. At my old job, I got up at 8:15 and was at work by 8:30 (about a two minute commute, I shower quick, and breakfast was a quick bowl of cereal or toast or something.) So you can that, after a year of being able to get up at 8:15, I now consider 6:15 waaaaay to early, and 5:30 would be Hell for me.

Last year it was up at 5:30am, on campus by 6:45, first class at 7:30. Next year everything gets pushed back half an hour, so I get to sleep in until 6am. Whee!

90% of the time, I’m out of bed at 7am and at work by 8am. 30-35 minutes to shower, dry/style hair, dress and eat. I only lives 2km from work, so it’s 20-25 minutes to walk to work (or 5 minutes by bus and get there 10-15 minutes early).

My record was a couple months ago when I overslept. Woke up at 7:45, threw on some clothing, grabbed a bagel and ran down to the bus which arrived right when I got there. Got off the elevator at work at 8:03. Eighteen minutes.

I really like it when I wake up at 6:30 and can take my time getting ready. But despite my intentions of trying to get up a bit earlier, I am not at all a morning person. I set my alarm one hour before I intend to get up, and then push snooze repeatedly. I prefer waking up slowly (one snooze at a time) and can’t just jump out of bed. Most of the time I’d rather sleep an extra five minutes than have five more minutes to eat pick what I’ll wear that day.

When I was between cars, I was up at 4:15, out the door at quarter til, on the train at 5:10, and at my desk at 6:30. On the way home, I was out of work at 3:15, on the bus to the train station at 4:10, on the train at 4:35, at the end of the train station at 5:35. Then I had to wait for my ride, who had to pick up other people at 6:35. The ride home was another half hour. All of this to get to my work which was 35 miles one way through the canyon.

Needless to say, I was ready to shoot myself.

Sorry, I get out of work at 3:45. Officially. Usually I have to stick around, especially on fridays. We call 3:20 on fridays “The Witching Hour”.
