They say that new experiences change you. And, oh, I’ve changed. I can’t really believe it; I don’t want to admit it…I’ve changed in a way that I never thought I would.
…I’ve turned into…a morning person.
No, seriously. It’s true. I’m early to bed and early to rise and everything. I never stay up past midnight anymore just because I get too tired. There’s no point to being awake then anyway because I can’t get any work done or even do something as simple as write.
But in the morning – I’m up and ready to go at 6am. THREE HOURS before I even need to start getting ready. And my psets are suddenly a lot easier because my mind can focus and understand things better…Just the fact that I can think about homework at 6am is a complete turnaround for me.
I wonder if this has to do with the fact that I feel very comfortable with life right now. When I go to sleep at night, I’m not worrying about all the things I have to do and how I shouldn’t be sleeping, and when I wake up in the morning I don’t feel completely hopeless about anything I’m planning on attempting.
Or maybe, I’m still just stuck on Boston time.
