Office Silence

I am usually the first person from my practice group to arrive at the office in the morning. I love it! The lights are all off on my floor of the building. There is complete silence on the floor. And I am able to finish a lot of my projects before my boss shows up for the day. I know that I probably sound a bit geeky, but I love having the mornings to myself.

Me, too! But since I started commuting with my husband and kid, it's rare. But I totally love being alone in the office (sadly, even on weekends - too geeky)!

Same here. I especially enjoy going in on Sunday afternoons for some reason.
On a weekday morning, to finish things prior to your boss's arrival, how early do you have to get there? And what time do you go to sleep the night before?

Shelley, I also enjoy working by myself on the weekends.

Gudnuff, I get here about 6:30 am, which is about 2-2.5 hours before my boss shows up. I basically have time to run some modeling and create memos, and small reports. I won't disclose my regular bedtime, because it is beyond lame. But right now, I am not getting a lot of sleep. I come in to work at 6:30 am and stay at work until 8:00 or 9:30 pm. I'm tired...

lame as in really late or really early? I would be tempted to put a couch in my office and crash there. Might make a point, too. But maybe in a bad way.

I go to bed really early, if possible. I am more of a morning person than a night person.

Gudnuff, haha, I could build a bed under my desk, like George from Seinfeld...
