Jinny, thank you for reading. i can't wait to read what you come up with!

perspycacious, I'd have to agree. i'm certainly a different person at night then I am in the morning, or even the afternoon! It also makes sense that the ocean could and would affect your personality

My 25 would depend on the time of day (morning. noon, and night) I think I vary that much from fearing I won't get the most important things done, to knowing I still have more time, to accepting that I didn't. Maybe that comes from living near the ocean much of my life and cycling with the tides. Suppose?

This is really awesome! I am definitely up for the challenge. Your rendidtion is so very clever and fun to read.
