This Week’s Theme: Sleeps cocooned in bedsheets or blankets
It’s her first winter and she shivers as the cold hit her again.
She misses the sunny Sunday mornings when she can drink coffee at the porch and just wallow in the warmth of the sun. Thinking about it just makes her miss her home more and rekindles her secret longing to go back.
But she can’t. Not until she makes her mark and achieve what she came here to do. She can’t go back home empty-handed with nothing to show for all the pain she left behind. She took all the money she can grab and bought a ticket to this cold, snow-filled place. All the time thinking this is where success is. She can’t be more wrong.
She sighs and rolls into more blankets to keep herself warm. It’s the only way she can sleep. Each morning she wakes up stiff from being cocooned for far too long but the only other option is to suffer the cold the whole evening. The discomfort seems to be easier than to feel like a Popsicle in the morning.
Each day she dreams of her sunny Sunday mornings spent lazily with her family. And how she wish she’s there right now instead of trudging through inches of snow on her way to work. But the only thing that she can really do, is dream.
