DASHING off to class across my icy campus. class this morning is Islamic Art and Architecture!! We’ve got to write an essay about the Arabic inscriptions on different buildings. I’m excited because the class is super interesting and all the art and architecture we are studying is beyond jaw dropping. Brings me back to my trip to Dubai….more later including musings on how to cook oats without a kitchen….
bye now!

Up with the sun

or before it.
way before it.

as in 4:45??
Don’t get me wrong, I know I usually wake up early, but I have now been up since 4:45.
This happened yesterday morning too, although I was able to at least make it to 6:30, closer to normal. I even stayed up extra late (read: 11:30pm) last night so that I could sleep in this morning. What gives?
So what does one do when one wakes up early but doesn’t really want/need to be up?
Well, I kind of sat around my room and then I brushed my teeth and looked out the window. Snow again, surprise!
I took some pictures.

around 5:30 am

around 6:45 am

Yes, I was indeed up before the sun.
All I have to say is, at least it isn’t so cold that the inside of my windows frost. See these pictures circa mid-january

holy wow

Yes, I am glad to say that lately my windows have remained ice-free. not to mention that I moved into a single, which I think manages heat flow a bit better?

Does your body ever wake you up way too early? What do you do with your extra time?
