This was one of the easiest things to leave behind in NYC. The constant screaming of kids in the morning between around 7:30-8:00 AM every single morning there was a school day. Now, the ambient noise doesn’t even REMOTELY compare and yet I’m still managing to wake up at a good time without even an alarm clock. We’ll see how much that changes once I have a job and am required to wake up at a certain time. I’m sure my waking up naturally at 7:30 AM will magically disappear when that happens.
