The Political Scientist Asks: Why do you Always Say You Are So Tired?

I preface by saying that I love my job:

  • 7:00AM – Wake up to the alarm, but my body is too broken to get out of bed, jog, and lift weights, so I take an ibuprofen and go back to sleep.
  • 8:30AM – Wake up, eat, shower, and get ready for work.
  • 10:00AM – Arrive at the office.
  • 11:00AM – Production meeting, things are great / there are problems – we solve them.
  • 1:00 PM – Run to Taiwanese Italian place for lunch.  I don’t eat.
  • 1:40 PM – Rush to car to get to 2PM meeting at National Theater
  • 2:05 PM – Walk into meeting room at national theater.
  • 2:05PM to 4:00PM – Act like I understand Mandarin; take good notes on what my translator is telling me people are talking about; draw juvenile sketches of toilets in the margins to make translator laugh.
  • 4:00PM to 5:00PM – Go to rehearsal space with the director.
  • 5:00PM to 9:00PM – Rehearse and perform and teach acrobatic moves.  Try to say interesting things to the journalist who has come to interview the director and watch the rehearsal.
  • 9:00PM-10:00PM – Travel home with director and journalist.
  • 10:00PM-11:30PM – Train handstand number.

  • 1:00AM – 1:30AM – Chinese Tapes
  • 1:30AM – 2:00AM – Read so I can fall asleep.
  • 2:00AM – 7:00AM – Blissful (if painful) sleep.
  • 7:00AM – Wake up to the alarm, but my body is too broken to get out of bed, jog, and lift weights, so I take an ibuprofen and go back to sleep.
