I'm already getting into the early-bird thing! I have to take a class in summer school, but it's the second period of summer school. I sit in the library and get productive during the first period. SO much better leaving at the same time as everyone else, but kind of knowing you worked a little harder.

I also prefer early... there are so many more things I could be doing with an extra hour in the afternoon, whereas I would just sleep in more and take a slightly longer shower with the same hour in the morning.

it's in my nature to go to work early - which is great for me since i'd much rather have the option to leave a bit earlier. the rest of my team apparently doesn't follow that though - they all show up late all the time and end up working a little later .

I always thought I'd prefer going in early. But when they changed my sked to 10-6, I changed my mind. Coming in at 10 is awesome!

I would love to work 7a-3p, but the old hounds at my job have that shift locked down...ugh.

I prefer late to late. But at the moment, I'm temping, so I have to suck it up and deal with it at the moment. :)

I'd rather get in early - I have no problem getting in early but I would hate to stay late.

I used to say morning. But now I don't mind starting later and leaving later. I miss the traffic in the tunnel then.

Leave early for sure. I'm such a morning person and I get tired early in the evening.

I'd MUCH rather go in early, since the hospital isn't really up and running yet...that way, I have more time to get all my extra stuff done before they start sending us stuff to culture. I'd much rather get in early and get all my stuff done and get done either early or on time. When I stay late to finish stuff, it just makes me crabby and irritated that I didn't get everything done in time.

Although I do love sleeping, I think I'd rather go in early and leave early than go in late and leave late.

I used to like being an early bird but now I'm just not so sure. I like sleeping too much :O Besides, most of the time, I get in early, put in my 8 hours and feel so dead tired and end up sleeping most of the evening...wasting it all away.
