(this originally posted on Thursday, but I took it down to give the post on domestic violence more time to be read. Sorry for the confusion.)
I woke up 7 minutes before my alarm went off.
I hate that.
It doesn't matter what time I need to get up, or how often I change it. I always wake up a couple minutes early, and then stare at the clock, miserably watching the minutes tick away.
I could get up, but that feels too much like surrender.
And I don't like surrender.
Especially not in the morning.
