It’s so funny how during the school year I was used from getting done with one thing while starting the next. The last week of school I was moving out of the dorms, packing up for South Africa, studying for finals, and finalizing all my duties of African American Celebratory’s 7th Annual Graduation Ceremony all at one time.
In Zonki it gets dark at 6:00p, and after then it is absolutely nothing to do but read. Now, I’m fall asleep at about 9:30p…something I didn’t even do in middle school. While us Americans are used always being in a rush to get something “important” done, I realize that we lose a sense of just living. “Boredom,” if it is even justified in being called that, has been one of the most exciting tasks I do each day.
