Usually I'm up as soon as the alarm clock starts blaring Mike and Mike in the Morning. This morning, I woke up earlier than the alarm and decided that it would be more painful to fall back asleep for the last 15 or 20 minutes I had to spare. I rolled out of bed and shuffled into the bathroom. I stared emptily at my bleary-eyed reflection, squinting under the unflattering flourescent light, toothbrush in my mouth. I looked around the bathroom, fairly tidy despite being shared among 4 roommates, wondered if any of my suits were clean, cursed myself silently for never having gotten around to getting those pants tailored (for the second summer in a row), and wondered when I'd have income to get that taken care of, or when I'd be able to afford another suit. Or a bathroom all to myself. I squinted at myself again, hair tousled, and thought, I wonder when I'll really be grown up.
