Waking up early for me is never as hard as I think it's going to be, and sometimes I feel a lift of energy. Sometimes in my deprived state I feel a type of energy and awareness that I don't feel otherwise.
Sometimes the ridiculousness of what I'm doing doesn't even occur to me. I'm sitting on a park bench between a cancelled class and another class, 2 hours later. Of all the places I could be or activities I could be doing, I'm on a park bench in Las Condes surrounded by roses and the sound of water.
And while all of this is something I can do, I will pay for it later.
