Its about 7:00 PM, meaning that I should be asleep right about now; in order to wake up new and refreshed at 2:00 AM to meet the rest of my cohort at El Cerrito High School. Packing efficiently has never been a forté of mine. I usually run around the house, grabbing anything that seems of some use and throwing it into a pile in my suitcase. Currently I am quite satisfied with my current plethora of various clothes and bathroom necessities I have jammed into my suitcase. Maybe I need a bigger one? No, I just need to push harder.
My body isn't used to sleeping early, and definitely not used to waking up early. My current sleeping schedule consists of midnight snacks and movies and waking up around noon. It's going to be tough adjusting to the jet lag and new time zone. But I'm up to the challenge and willing to try new things throughout our journey. I hope readers at home can utilize this blog page as a window to our experiences and feelings at the University of Chicago.
