Spring Break is almost half over and I’m just starting to feel relaxed. I took the whole week off work. I spent a few days relaxing in DC, and am now in Florida for a few days, before I go back and start my reading for next week.
I feel like I’m starting to relax. I find myself repeatedly exhaling deeply, and I think a nap under a tree may be called for after lunch.
I actually slept fairly well last night. For the first few nights, I didn’t sleep well, at all. I kept having crazy dreams. It was like my brain had all this clutter it needed to get out. The first morning, I woke up at 4:46, and finally gave up and got out of bed at 6:30. I had a dream that there was a fine in the dorm room above mine, which started when the guys living there decided to light their hammock on fire to see what would happen. The fire spread to my room. After the firefighters were done, my room collapsed in on itself like a Transformer, until it was about the size of two large bricks. Just as I was lamenting to a friend that I was going to have to buy new textbooks, I woke up.
What the hell was that about?
The next two nights, I had weird dreams, too, but I don’t really remember them.
This morning, I woke about 7. I find that I often don’t need much sleep when I’m on vacation. I guess when I’m not stressed, I don’t need as much time to recover. I also like being up earlier than everyone else. This morning, I watched the sun rise from the comfort of the heated pool.
