So, I’ve been trying to wake up yearly, well, forever now. And everyday I wakeup earlier than the alarm and turn it off. why?, ’cause I’d be tired going to bed late and waking up early, so I woke up earlier to not wake up early. *phew*
And with everyday conviction to wake up at 6:30am, I went to bed late, as always.
I think the universe got fed up with me convincing myself everyday to wakeup and not hold up my promise everyday.
As usual *eye roll* I wakeup an hour before the alarm, I turn it off and got to bed.
Suddenly I heard a ruffling sound coming from the area near the mirror.
First instinct, let me tell you, I got scared, I was like ‘Is it a ghost?’ ‘Am I going to be in a real life horror film? ’cause there is no way anything can make that sound other than whatever I didn’t know yet.
I got up, took my phone and shined its light. Nothing I couldn’t see anything. I thought maybe it can from outside. I was still sleepy and again got to bed.
Again I heard the same thing, papers ruffing. This time I was more awake, I can definitely tell it was coming from the space before the mirror. I got up abruptly and switched on the torch in my phone.
I think I was calm before, even though I my mind was playing so many images. But when I saw what I saw, I was jumped.
I was frigging cockroach! A huge cockroach! I freaked out.
After getting it out. I was wide awake. I looked at the clock it was 5:17am. And decided not to go back to sleep. After so many tries. I woke up early. Earlier than I wanted to.
I read my book ‘Onward’ for an hour after that.
But again I felt sleepy and went back to sleep. < I can feel the eye rolling>
Though anti-climatic, I did wake up early and did what I wanted to after waking up early.
Firsts adds up and lasts. Thats what I hoping for.
Like that, smile everyday, It adds up.
