I’ve decided to start walking to school. My apartment is so close to campus that it seems silly not to – and the weather has been so mild and beautiful lately that I can hardly resist doing it! It’s a little less than a mile so it only takes me about twenty minutes with waiting to cross the busy streets.
I love my walks to school. Half of it is busy streets and the other half is nice and shaded and pretty. There’s a creek that runs right in front of the campus and my favorite view is standing on the bridge looking to downtown Kansas City.
I always feel so good after walking home from school. I hope me now walking about two miles a day compensates for the extra cookies I’ve been eating for lunch.
Mornings are usually so hectic and crazy for me. Normally I’m running late: I hit the snooze button too many times, I can’t figure out what to wear, I forgot something and had to turn back, I took too long eating breakfast. But so far this semester I’ve been really good at waking up on time and managing my time in the morning. I think it’s because I woke up every day over the summer at 6:00am so waking up at 7:30am is now normal. How bizarre.
If I have slept until about 10:00am now, I feel guilty. -_- I normally can’t sleep that late anymore because of my sleep schedule, but I feel like I’ve just wasted a good chunk of my day by not making the most of my morning.
I make my bed every morning now: seeing my sheets all mussed and my pillows strewn across the room drives me crazy! I used to not care a bit; my logic used to be that it was silly to make the bed up when I was only going to mess it up later at night when I went to bed. Now, however, a neat bed implies a neat morning and a neat day ahead of me!
How have I missed the glory of mornings up until now?
September has been a very mellow and peaceful month for me. My classes are picking up and I’ve started working at the theater again, but overall it has been very relaxing. I have become very lazy! The closer fall becomes, the more that I just want to roll in a pile of leaves and eat caramel apples. Homework? Tests? Psh, what are these trivial things against the tide of the seasons.
