The Mornings


They say that often, during tough times, the hardest thing you will have to do is get out of bed. In the last few weeks, I am finding this increasingly true. Not just figuratively, but literally. After getting up, everything seems easier to do. With class at 7:30 am every single day, I've lost the wake-up time in the mornings that I so cherish. Some of my favorite morning pastimes have been spending an hour or two sipping coffee, catching up on my Google reader, making my lunch, and dressing myself well. Having that ripped away from me because I am physically incapable of waking up at 5 am has taken a significant toll on my morning joy. Enough that I think I might start making the 40 minute walk to campus instead of taking the bus because I can use that morning time to sip my coffee and enjoy the morning at least.

In other news, I am borrowing a guitar from my old apartmate with the full intent to learn. So, look for progress on that front! I hope I can stay motivated enough to actually follow through with this!

  1. Mornings are just downright rough. It's hard for me to get out of my comfy bed. I tend to press the snooze button a whopping 4-5, maybe 6 times before I actually get out of bed hehe. Such is life. Great pictures though!!

  2. Oh, exciting! I started playing guitar 5 years ago, and it was really rocky for me in the beginning - but now, chords that I thought I was physically incapable of 5 years ago are really easy! It's all in the practicing!

    Unsolicited advice: Go to www.ultimate-guitar.com and search for songs you love. When you find one with only 3-4 chords in it, transpose it to the key of G or D (the two easiest keys to play in, since the 1st, 4th, 5th, and relative minor are easy chords).

    Makes it easier to practice if you're working on songs you love. :) Good luck!

  3. very cool! Good luck with learning :)

    I played from the time I was 8 til about 20, but have been slacking the last 2 years, I guess it's time to dust it off and try again. You've inspired me!
