Wake up. Brush. Eat. Bathe. Rush, run, leap, and ride. Sounds cool, right? Yeah, cool dream.
Yaawn..! Oh bed, my glorious bed! How I would love to spend the rest of my life with you (rewind the tapes, that sounds wrong). How I’d love to spend the rest of the day (sigh, much better) curled up, room air-conditioned to the pinnacle of its comfort (thank you, air-conditioning).
Doesn’t that sound beautiful? Yeah, it does. Too beautiful to be true. So, roll curtains, close the fairy tale book and pick up something dark and gritty (the world, in general - Hollywood loves that term so I’ll use it). Look around you. Does anyone, except for a billionaire’s son, do that? Heck, even they’re expected to maintain an image.
As boring as it sounds, that’s the harsh reality of life kids (sorry, readers). Wake up, run to point A. Already there?
Pick this up/do this and run to point B.
A volley of assignments, deadlines, targets (damn, how I hate them) makes me wonder what’s so exciting about running from point A to point B under someone’s orders. And don’t even get me started on this entrepreneurial crap. In a regular day job, or while being a generic employee/student, all you get is a round of well-deserved abuses while someone else takes the bull for your errors. Be your own boss, and well, I guess that’s painfully obvious. Suffer, rot under the gut-wrenching errors because you were too eager to stay in bed.
So, bottom line - any attempts to spend the rest of the day in bed can and will result in utter failure (yay, for Murphy’s Law Easter egg).
“What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?” quoted William Henry Davis in his famous poem “Leisure”. If he were alive, I’d quote this line and then Walter White’s famous “You’re goddamn right.” (Breaking Bad, anyone?).
