i have two bedroom windows in my new apartment that are facing east. the amount of sunlight in my room is incredible. especially compared to every other bedroom i have lived in. i have always been a late sleeper. one, two, three pm - if and whenever i am able to. since moving here, i haven't been able to sleep past eight am. even when i try and even when i am tired. i have the bright and beautiful sun in my eyes. even with curtains and blinds, the sun and the light are there. i may not get used to it for a while, but i can still appreciate the loveliness and enjoy those extra hours in my day.
