You know those mornings when you wake up and you immediately have a feeling that it's going to be a shit day? I had one of those mornings today.

It was a hot night, so I tossed and turned a lot, opened and closed my windows whenever it got too hot or too chilly, and alternated between sleeping with a thin sheet and a comforter. Suffice it to say, I had a restless night and I only woke up close to noon. When I did wake up, I had a sense of immediate panic. First thought: 'I have so much to dooo and I haven't started on any of it yet!'. Then for some reason, my mind landed on good ol' Dubai.

Now usually when this happens, my thoughts skip skillfully to something else without lingering on it for too long. Today however, they decided to hatch an egg on top of it, and when this happens, I start feeling sickly nostalgic. Slowly it progressed from the major things I missed about Dubai to the smaller things so I laid there in my bed, half-wishing for a hand to appear from the heavens to slap me from my trance and bring me back to reality.

Bleh. Gotta love such lovely mornings.

Good thing I have a lot of school work to busy myself with (yay?). And that stuff needs to get started on now. Almost three weeks into the semester and I'm already slacking. Soon, I'll have to resort to this:
