so I woke up at 6 in the morning for no apparent reason, and returning to sleep seems impossible. I think now that I'm actually sleeping in a darkened room, I'm actually extremely responsive to light and am waking up naturally with dawn. weird. on the bright side, this song was in my head, instead of total eclipse of the heart (like the last 6 mornings...)
my friend wants me to apply to city year chicago with her. last year I applied to city year new york and convinced her to apply, then found out about earthcorps in seattle and was convinced I would get in there and like it better. I was accepted to city year new york, didn't tell them yes or no until earthcorps had told me no, by which time it was too late to say anything at all to city year. she ended up going to city year and I didn't, and she loved it, only to have her shitty room mate drop out three days ago, informing her he hadn't paid his share of this week's rent, so she had one day to find enough money on her volunteer's stipend to pay rent. she couldn't, and arrived back home in indiana today after a tearful fairwell to CYNY, with some very good recommendations from her NY supervisors to one of City Year Chicago's mid-year positions.
I'm tempted, except that this would be in January, which seems awful soon. I'm definitely tempted, though.
