I’m sure from the looks of my title, you’re probably thinking that is is a rant about me not being able to sleep. You would be correct! However, this is not a negative rant. No, this is a positive one. How does one write a positive rant? I’m about to show you!
So this past week marks the first week of my second semester of college (crazy right?). Well being the scheduling genius that I am, I have 9:00 am’s all week *insert pitying looks*. On top of school, I started work again, and have been shuttling up and down the California coast for doctors appointments. Needless to say, but I am exhausted.
This leads me to today, where my first and only class ended at 10:00 am. Now most, “sane” people would take this prime opportunity to take a nap; if I could I would! But you see, I’ve finally hit the reason for my rant. I can’t fall asleep because…It’s just too beautiful of a day! That’s right everything you’ve heard (and seen in movies) about California weather is true. To put into perspective: It’s 71 degrees and sunny–it’s January. Every time I look out of my window, I feel this overwhelming sense of guilt for letting such a beautiful day pass me by.
You see, I’m not crazy (right now), I just couldn’t imagine blocking out this glorious day, for something as insignificant as a nap. It really is incredible though how much one’s mood can improve with a little warmth and sunshine. Stay warm my friends, and I’m sending California dreams to all of you! And now I will end with a little blurb about beautiful days (I never have been good with conclusions).
“When I look out and the sun is shining, I see your smiling face. When I’m outside and the wind blows, I feel your tender kiss. And when I’m surrounded by a day full of blue skies, I hear your voice whisper, “That everything will be alright.”
