I had a pretty full day. CMU classes from 9 a.m. until about 3 p.m. Then I had a initial strategy meeting with a new client. Then a lot of post meeting discussion. And now I’m sitting down to do some homework that I foresee taking me into the early hours.

This week we’re being introduced to industrial design by Stephen Stadelmeier. My homework assignment is to choose a design firm from the Association of Professional Design Firms and write a one-page profile of the firm. It shouldn’t take long once I pick a firm. But first I need to pick one. And for some reason I’m procrastinating by blogging.

I’m pretty tired, so that might be a reason. And blogging doesn’t take too much brain power (though this is the second revision of this post). At any rate, it’s probably foreshadowing of what’s to come over the next two years. And it’s made me consider whether I’d rather work late until the night or wake up early to complete a project.

I prefer staying up late than getting up early. At least you’re gauranteed enough time and you can rest assured that it’s complete, rather than worried about finishing in the morning.

What’s your preference?
