all secrets sleep in winter clothes

I took a nap today. Usually when I do that, it's accidental, the result of not enough sleep and a textbook that's less than intriguing, but today it was intentional. In a way, winter just makes me want to take one long nap. Sometimes I wish it were socially acceptable for humans to hibernate, but then again, no. I'd miss too much. Not a ton, right now, but some. Enough to make me keep dragging myself out of bed each morning.

So, yeah, if it seems a bit quiet here, that's because it is. The world is quiet here. I'm actually kind of busy, with what track starting and the usual abundance of schoolwork, but we've not fully awakened from our faux-hibernation yet and my brain is still kind of frozen and I don't know if I can really explain anything sufficiently right now. Oh well. Come spring it'll thaw. Hopefully.

We'll see.


  1. Spring can't come soon enough. I'd love to sleep through winter. Well, most winters. This winter is actually pretty good. Especially the fact that in ten minutes I leave to go to the airport. I'll be spending a month in El Salvador. Hopefully inspiration and my creativity (like you said) will thaw out while I'm there. We'll see, I guess. Haha. xx

  2. Is that a fort? Perfect for naps. Perfect for hibernation.

  3. Sometimes, I come in from school and I'm just sitting down on the sofa for ten minutes before starting on homework and chores and all the things I need to do, and I end up falling asleep. I try not to think of it as a bad thing though -- my body clearly needed that sleep!
    Like you though, I've been a lot quieter this winter than usual.
    (and I'm normally quite quiet, so that really is saying something!)

  4. I have a strict rule of no naps on weekdays, but I accidentally fell asleep reading last Monday. And it was nice. Also, now I want to go make a fort. Maybe I'll do my exam studying in a fort tonight?

  5. I seriously wish hibernating through winter was a thing, I would be so on board that idea. I just can't wait for spring!

  6. um, yes, i think hibernating needs to be the norm. where is the bandwagon for this already?!?


Hey, you. Be nice.
