7:23 The first of several alarms go off
7:35 Force myself up and into the shower
7:45 Towel dry hair and do makeup, probably while watching Netflix on my phone.
7:55 Get dressed, hopefully without needing to iron
8:00 Dry hair as fast as possible
Anywhere from 8:05 to 8:20 Begin waiting endlessly for the elevator, only to stop on a million floors on the way down.
8:20/8:30 Speed walk to subway station, providing plenty of time to stand impatiently on the platform waiting for a B or D train. If in a pinch, I’ll take a 1 instead and then spend the rest of the day whining about how many Big Bus drivers tried to sell me tickets in Times Square.
8:30/8:40 Get to work. Bitch about the subway to coworkers who wake up at the crack of dawn to take commuter trains or buses into the city.
