I am not at all a morning person. You tell me to wake up till 4:00 a.m. I would happily do that without cribbing at all. You tell me to get up at 4:00 a.m. I would strangle you right away (at least in my head). It takes 14-15 alarms continuously ringing for one and a half hour, to wake me up on time; if there was an award for snoozing the alarms, I bet I would get that.
Yesterday I decided to get done with my laziness, for one day. My friends had planned a road trip, and more than the excitement of the road trip, much of my excitement was about getting up early.
I got up at 3:20 a.m. We were supposed to leave at 4:00 a.m
I was sleep walking, bumping into my room door, haphazardly changing my clothes, I even brushed my teeth without putting any toothpaste on it…only to realize that ten minutes later and a bunch of other lame things. I was literally cursing myself and all my friends. Why did we even make such a plan. 4:00 a.m for me is midnight, I am halfway through my sleep at that time otherwise. Anyways I managed to wake myself up completely and ride my scooty carefully. The cold winter winds helped.
The scooty ride was awesome and peaceful. No traffic, just smooth road and my scooty. For the first time I was riding my scooty without worrying about traffic light, pedestrians, traffic jams, potholes etc. I had never experienced such sense of freedom and joy before.
