Good morning sunshine!

My boyfriend recently started in a new job and it's conveniently located near my place of work. We decided to have a carpool together with my sister who works in Ortigas, which is just along the way to Makati, where we work. Unfortunately, we have different office hours so there are major adjustments to be made, mostly on my part. My sister needs to be at the office by 7am, my boyfriend starts at 8am and I can come in any time at work, but I usually am in around 10:30am. When before I set my alarm to 6am and get up from bed at 8am, now I set it at 4:30am and get up at 4:30am. The last time that I had to wake up this early everyday was probably when I was still in elementary! Just this morning, my alarm went off while I was dreaming so I woke up with a huge headache and it felt like I never went to sleep at all. Good thing this kind of headache goes away once I've hit the shower. I think the reason is because the pain is replaced by another, in the form of bathing with very cold water. But once I've taken a bath and eaten breakfast then I'm ok. My sister and I then leave the house at 5:30am; we arrive at my boyfriend's house at 6:00am; my boyfriend takes my place as designated driver; we drop off my sister in Ortigas at 6:30am; we arrive in Makati at 7:00am. Whew! Thank God I'm a morning person so I'm not bothered by all the early morning activities. I even enjoy getting to the office early because I can concentrate and get a lot of things done before everybody else arrives.

What I do miss from my old routine is being able to listen to my favorite morning radio show while driving to work. I do not miss the horrible traffic but I do miss laughing out loud while I listen to 'Sam and Gib, Disturbing the Peace.' The name of their show says it all; they're totally hilarious! I'm a SAGO (Sam and Gib O-dience) and proud of it. I also like the music that they play so the stressful EDSA traffic doesn't affect me as much because it just gives me more time to listen to their show (they air Mon-Thur at 9am-12nn at DWRT 99.5 FM). When I'm feeling a little 'jologs', I switch to 'Tambalan' briefly from 9-930 just to listen to Nicole Hyala and Kris Tsuper. I hope the SAGOs don't crucify me for this, but I just can't help it. These two are out of this world and if you're just like me then your sides will also ache from laughing hard, listening their silly antics. Now with my morning starting earlier than these morning shows, I can no longer listen to them. Of course I can listen to them online once I get to the office but it just won't be the same. Plus my officemates would wonder when I suddenly start cracking up in my cubicle.

I still have to find a cool morning radio show to listen to while in the car with my sister and boyfriend. Suggestions, anyone? :)
