Uses of Time
What really gets me about the time difference is how much time you spend sleeping but don't even realize it. I'm fifteen hours ahead of Colorado so when I'm pondering bed at 11 PM it is 9 AM for most of you. And when I wake up at 7 then most of you are coming off of work or at home, having put in a full day's work.
It has really made me think about the budgeting of my time and how much of it I waste. One of my resolutions for the new year, thus, is to budget my time a little bit more effectively. Not lounge around and sleep until noon on the weekends; this won't be hard to stop during the week as I'm going to be working at 7:45 AM (as soon as I find a job). I want to make the most of my time, not just waste it away.
So we'll see how long that lasts, I did get up at 8 this morning to come down to the net cafe and hang out, so a good start. Pictures and trip commentary to follow.
