Woke Up In A Ghost Town


Even though I am a high school graduate, there is one thing about the system that continues to bug me. It's the fact that you got to wake up incredibly early in order to get there at 8 a.m. You know how it goes everyone. For some people, you live far away from your school, and has to use public transportation in order to get there. You wake up at 6 in the morning, hoping to get dressed, grab a snack, and catch that bus by 6:30. Then you ride there to the end of your destination at possibly 6:45, and you have five minutes to run and catch another bus at your second destination.

That's what I was dealing with. Now that I am out of school and look back at some of my transportation stories, I call it bonafide ridiculous.

One morning, I woke up at what appears to be 6:00 a.m. My eyes were very blurry, but I didn't care. It wasn't one of my best weeks. I had one exam that was going to happen on Friday. I have been studying like a maniac while still finishing six homework assignments every night. I only slept for three hours at that point. I was truly exhausted.

So I got up, brushed my teeth, put on my uniform, and was out of the door faster than the Road Runner on The Looney Tunes Show. When I walked outside, it was quiet and dark as a ghost town. I didn't hear any cars driving by. I didn't hear any footsteps. The moon was still bright. It was very weird to me.

Then I walked over to the bus station, waiting for the upcoming bus to arrive. There wasn't a single car driving around. It was incredibly weird. Normally, when I walk up, morning traffic would going on right in front of me. Once I noticed there weren't any cars around, I quickly checked my phone to check out the time.

I turned it on and found out that it wasn't 6:30 a.m. It was 3:30 a.m.

The lesson here everyone is that they need to the school systems need to change their times to start everything. Because 8 in the morning is just too freaking early.
