I woke up this morning to the sound of Cody watching Dexter in the kitchen. As my brain began to start its cognition, I noticed that the light from outside was unique, unlike any sunrise I’d seen before. Everything outside looked to be a glowing shade of grey, and was beaming in through my apartment windows. The sky around winter time usually maintains a thick overcast blanket over the state. From what I can tell, the blanket has been thinning. I’ve never seen this much sun in the winter months. (Yes, I include November in winter; it’s Michigan.) Too add to this though, It’s been a long time since I’ve easily woken up early in the morning, and fallen asleep early at night.
While sharing a studio apartment with two other people can be crowded, overall it’s been quite cozy. It’s like having a little family. We all look out for each other, and are helping all three of us survive and thrive.
We’re all young, poor, and trying our best.
What a nice little moment in time.
