Let me tell you about the snow we have in BC right now: it is outrageous. Yes, it’s winter and all, but I cannot deal with it right now.
It’s way too early in the morning—two A.M. early, of course—and the snow will not let me sleep.
Not only is it the fear of me waking up to three feet of snow to shovel off my driveway, but it’s the fact that the snow reflects every bit of light there is at two in the morning. So, what does that mean? I can’t sleep.
Let me elaborate:
It’s like trying sleeping with the light on.
It’s like staring at a white t-shirt or shiny surface on a very sunny summer day.
It’s like trying to nap in the middle of the day when you’re wired on a couple cups of coffee.
It’s like THE SNOW IS SO BRIGHT YOU MIGHT AS WELL CALL IT 12PM IN THE AFTERNOON ON A CLEAR SPRING DAY AND I’M TRYING TO SLEEP.
Now, some of you might be thinking: why don’t I just close my window’s curtains or blinds? And you make a great point BUT I purposely allow the natural light from outside to shine into my room so I know when to wake up in the morning. If I kept them completely shut, my room would stay dark and I’d probably wouldn’t wake up till 4 PM every day. That is no bueno.
I need to keep up with the productivity going on here and have enough time in the day to execute that productivity. This just means I NEED TO SLEEP and I’M NOT GETTING ANY SLEEP.
On another note, it is way too cold outside to be doing anything. No matter how many layers I wear to shovel my driveway or to commute to school, I can’t seem to shake the cold weather.
If I didn’t have anywhere to go during this lovely snow fest, I wouldn’t mind the snow. I absolutely love looking out my window and seeing the snow sit on tree branches or coat people’s roofs. It’s a lovely look and feel for the winter season that I really want to appreciate right now… but that’s not how things are.
You know what? How about this: I will accept the weather for what it is as long as it doesn’t snow come springtime. That is all I hope for, please and thank you.
In the meantime, I’m going to give this sleep thing another go and we’ll see what happens. Good night.
