Adventures: Waking Up

It can be hard to wake up on Monday morning. But one thing that makes it easier is when you have a room on the east side of the house and curtains that only cover about half of the windows so that nature's alarm clock sends its bright rays in to awake you whether you like it or not. Then when the slight mist over the lake outside your window is so intriguing that you can't help but go out on the balcony to take a picture and the temperature out there is about 50 degrees and the concrete balcony is cold under your bare feet, you are slapped into wakefulness by the briskness of it all. 

Am Kellersee, 6:30 AM.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
Funnily enough, it's pretty easy to get sleepy again on the 45-minute train ride gently rocking you through the northern German countryside. So you might close your eyes for a minute, intending to rest them, and find yourself at your destination sooner than you thought possible. The problem with getting to the end station is that you then have to get out of the train and walk to the bus. And the problem with getting to your bus stop is that you have to get off the bus and walk up the stairs to your job. But once you get to your job, there are no more problems, only solutions. Or colloids in this case?
