I’m a routinist, yes I just made up a word. A routinist is someone who always follows a schedule or routine.
Everyday I get up at the same time, have a shower, get dressed and then pop two pieces of bread in the toaster. After standing in the kitchen aimlessly for 2 minutes the toaster pops and I smother the toast with peanut butter and raspberry jam.
I then go off to work and show up at the same time everyday, which is about an hour before I really have too. I eat lunch at the same time everyday. Then of course I come how cook a meal and plop myself in front of the TV for the evening entertainment. Finally at about 9:30pm I head off to bed where I’ll read for about an hour.
Done. That is my routine. No it doesn’t sound all that different from most people, but at the age of 20, I have a routine of an old man, or something.
Sure everyone once and a while I’ll go crazy with the routine. I’ll change from toast to yogurt, or eat out instead of in, but I quickly go back to my, safe, routine.
The reason I bring this up is because I have never really known anything else. I have always gone to sleep relatively early and then gotten up and gone to work earlier than most. You can say that attitude is in my blood or I just acquired it throughout highschool. So what is so weird is seeing others routines. Both my roommate and boss have bizarre routine, if any. My roommate, who is the boss mans younger brother, and I all work at the same place, we do different things, and we have different schedules. Like last night for example. All three of us were at the office at about the same time all day yesterday, and at 5pm we all left and when home. I came home and cooked supper and what not, but roommate and boss went home and slept for a couple hours, I can’t do this, then just as I’m about to go to sleep, roommate gets up and goes back into work.
I understand that we all work differently, and this post is merely an observation. What I find interesting is, that according to Facebook and emails, they would have left the office again at around 4am. Which makes it only an hour before I got up, I don’t here anything while sleeping so I can’t be certain.
I wonder when I will see either of them today? Noon? The funny thing is I feel like the dull one, by doing the same thing every single day.
