110 percent means alot to me - 100 or 95 won't cut it.
And by early, I mean the time normal, working people wake up. As a young person, naturally I function better in the late afternoon to evening hours, but I have transitioned into the 9 to 5 routine.
Crunch time will ensue over the next few weeks. College finals, picking classes for fall and gearing up for The New York Times' Student Journalism Institute. I'll need to train like a boxer, but journalism style. That means reading journalism books, going over years worth of notes and writing, writing, writing.
I can own the night (finish strong), but I need to own the day (start strong) as well.
