For reasons I can't explain my mind just seems to be the most beautiful around 4:00 am. All through high school and college, I would sleep when I got home from my classes and then wake up in the wee hours of the morning to do my homework. When I started working I did the same thing, and I've been called out about it a couple times.  
Random annoying co-worker:       Did you really send that email at 4:15?
Me:   No, the Easter Bunny hacked my laptop and thought it would be even funnier if he did my work
        Yeah, I did. 

In a perfect world my ideal work schedule would be something like 3:00 am to 12:00 pm. Unfortunately for me I don't see that gaining any traction in the corporate world any time soon.

What about you? When are you at your peak?

The Luck of The Irish

I've found myself thinking about luck a lot lately (I have no idea why. My mind is a Ferris wheel of randomness).  I'm a firm believer in hard work, but there's no denying that some people no matter what they do just can't seem to catch a break. While others just seem to always be in the right place at the right time. You know they get lucky. 

My mother has always said that I must have been born under a lucky star. There was also a family friend that told me when I was very young that because I looked so much like my father I would be lucky in life. I've had my fair share of trials, but for the most part I'd consider myself a lucky person. I've been wondering lately how much of that is due to chance, and how much is based on me internalizing what the people close to me have always said.

 I wanted to find out if girls who look like their fathers are lucky was just something that friend made up, and I ended up reading about what different cultures do for good luck(This is why my laundry is still waiting to be folded). Did you know, and by did you know I mean that per the Internet, a gift of a white egg in England is considered lucky, pigs are good luck in Germany, red bats in China, sapphires for the Greeks and a wheel in India?  I didn't either.The next time you catch a cab, enter a business or go to a restaurant take a look around and see how many good luck symbols you can spot. 

Where do you fall on the good luck spectrum? Do you believe in it? What are some of your good luck charms?
