The world after 8:00 pm is one of my favorite times. Either the atmosphere is filled with the boisterous noise of people going out for a night on the town or it is silent. I tend to like both. Part of me dreams of exploring the streets of a strange city until 2:00 am with the people that I love most, but another part of me wouldn’t mind staying in.
On Monday nights when I am walking home from my lab, I cannot get over how beautiful everything looks. The world around me is drenched in silver moonlight. The roads that were once busy with traffic are now glowing with green, yellow and red hues. It just feels comfortable. The sun isn’t out to reveal my secrets, and it is just me, the moon, and the stars.
Just something short and sweet. I will be back very soon ❤
There is just something about taking an early morning walk that makes me feel happy to be alive. The smell of the dewy air; the way that sunlight filters through the tops of the trees. Even the way that the sky looks after it has just rained. Everything. Every morning I get to witness how beautiful campus is whenever it isn’t crowded with the constant hustle and bustle of people trying to rush to their classes.
It’s funny actually because I’ve never really thought about how people are so eager to get somewhere, that they miss the beauty around them. Now I completely understand if you are 20 minutes late to your class because you decided to take a detour and get Starbucks, we’ve all done it. It’s just that I feel like people miss out on so much when they have their nose buried in their phone, or when they have their eyes glued to the sidewalk in order to avoid eye contact with strangers.
I guess that’s it for now, I just thought that I would share my thoughts for the day. Thank you so much for taking the time to read.
