#AtoZChallenge : Lazy
The rays of the sun which are falling on my face through my window, wake me up. I hunt for my cellphone and look at the time. It is 8 am. Saturday. Too early. I pull the drapes and see that the window is covered and I go back to sleep.
The constant ringing of my phone disturbs me from my dream world again. Mom won’t call me until afternoon on a Saturday. I rub my eyes and check the time. 10.15 am.
My phone is buzzing with notifications and all the missed calls are from my friends. Just when I’m about to keep my phone aside and go back to sleep, one of my friends calls me again.
“Hello” I say in my sleepy voice.
“Heloooo Alana! Wassup?”, she yells in her overenthusiastic voice.
“Nothing. I just woke up.”
“What plans for today?”
“Shall we go shopping?”
“No I don’t want to”
“What’s wrong with you?”
“Nothing. Okay, got to go back to sleep”
I go back to sleep again.
Finally I wake up around lunch time. I brush my teeth and then hunt for something to eat. I also check my phone which has been buzzing with notifications since morning. So many messages! So many plans being made. But what is my plan? To do nothing.
Today I just don’t feel like going out or doing anything. All I want to do is just sleep. The week has been hard enough on me and today I just want to sleep.
Call me lazy, but you see I just don’t have the drive to do anything.
Oh did I forget to mention, that last weekend, I had a long list of things to do, places to visit and all of the weekend went by in doing all those things. I enjoyed it a lot.
Do you doubt if I am the same person?
Yes, there are times when I have many plans for the weekend and on days when I am interested in doing all of that, I’m happy that I did those things.
But then there are days like today when I absolutely don’t have the mind to do anything. Sleeping all day is what I want to do. Oh I may read a book in bed. But that is about it.
Now please I’ll go off to sleep while you can listen to Bruno Mars singing about how he feels like not doing anything- just like me!
I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge and all through April I’ll be writing about the Life and Times of a Twenty something! What are you best memories or expectations from your twenties? Let me know in the comments.
