Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Humpback Rock, Rockfish, VA, USA
Anybody else gettin kinda sick of wakin up at the ass-crack of dawn to go watch the sunrise for 60 seconds just to be tired for the rest of the day? Anybody else lookin to shake up their newfound semester routine a little bit? Well, here’s what I’m thinkin.
I’m thinkin that a nice alternative to wakin up way too early for the sunrise and being zonked in classes for the rest of the day might be to instead, head out in the evening to catch the MOONrise, maybe wish on a few shootin stars while we’re at it, and then come right back to a nice and cozy bed with a tired and content body that will happily collapse until it is needed again in the morning. Capeesh?
