I am surprised to find myself in front of the mirror each morning at 6AM, and even more surprised not to take a two hour nap in the afternoon when I arrive home from a lecture.
Why? You know the feeling you get when you had a great night's rest (thanks to Sealy Postropedic)? You don't want to wake up, and try oh so hard to fall back to sleep to continue that awesome dream? I love that feeling and that is exactly how I spent most of my holiday.
Don't get me wrong, I am definitely not lazy. In fact, I like working hard, challenging myself and developing my skills. I embraced my holiday and slept in each morning until at least 10AM. I think that most "normal" students on holiday would do so, for we are breaking a sweat throughout the entire year. Well, most of us.
I dislike the early morning buzz in my ears, rush hour, dragging myself out of bed into the shower when I really don't want to and listening to a lecture when "klaas vakie's" bag of sand is still in my eyes.
Now, continuing the cycle of waking up (very) early and working hard, I perceive it as my years goal toward my next holiday.
