Instead of sleeping in as usual on a Tuesday, I woke up early to meet up with a friend. It usually takes me a long time to get out of bed, but I avoid hitting “snooze” when I have somewhere to be.
For once I felt alert in the morning as I headed out to see my friend. The outside air smelling of fresh rainwater that greeted me as I stepped out of my dorm woke me up even more. The early rainy weather was much more pleasant than expected, and the smell of rain always makes me happy. It was a great start to the morning, as it distracted me for a bit from the responsibilities awaiting me during the day and the rest of the week.
