First thought in the morning

First thought in the morning

Living in a dream world

The first thought I had this morning was that I would not be able to fall asleep right after I  woke up. But I was wrong. Within a few minutes, I was fast asleep, dreaming wonderful dreams.

Spreading the wings

*Laughing during sleep* *wakes up* Oh my gosh, that was so funny! I seriously hope my teacher doesn’t find out that I was dreaming about her chicken dance in a fat blob suit ... what if it really comes true like most of my other dreams? *cackles wickedly*

Wake-up call

I had a private tutorial class this morning and I was too sleepy to get up early. Yet, when I thought of the video games I would be playing today, I was wide awake at once!

Late? Well ... depends on who you're talking to

Trouble brewing

My mind was filled with anxiety when I woke up this morning. The first thought that popped into my head was “I still haven’t done my homework!” I should probably be working on it ... but then after making myself a cup of tea, I started to procrastinate and deal with a bunch of first world problems – my assignments were left untouched.

Sound bites

Thank goodness I didn’t actually say those things out loud. That would have been disastrous. Wait, did I?

“The clock. Time please.” That was my first thought this morning – to check the time. Not because I have important things to do, but I wanted to see if it was “reasonable” for me to continue sleeping ... zzzz. It’s still summer, right?

Can I please go back to sleep again? I was really reluctant to get out of the comfy covers and get ready for school – waking up at 6.30 is far too early!

What’s the most embarrassing text you’ve ever sent?

In breakfast we trust

Breakfast! All I’m thinking about is the berry smoothies, the cereal, the scrambled and sunny-side-up eggs, not to mention toast, and all the things that go on it (nutella, avocado, peanut butter, honey). You could say I’m a little obsessed. And who could forget bacon?

Is this the life?

As a person that usually wakes up around 10am, waking up at 6am today for the sake of school made me question my life’s priorities. I wondered if there is a superhero who can sleep for less than three hours yet miraculously feel like they got their eight hours.
