For the Sake of a Sunrise, I’ll Get up Early

October 25th, 2014

There is not much that will get a college kid out of bed early in the morning, besides an 8AM class. Because after a long night of studying there is nowhere we’d would rather be than curled up in bed. I was all for sleeping in as late as possible before I realized what I […]
