Definition: Clinomania (pronounced klin-oh-MAYN-ee-ah); Greek; noun
1. Excessive desire to stay in bed.
Why I love this word:
I'm normally an early riser. Like a 5am walk around the city, coffee at 6am, and write while watching the sun rise kind of girl. But more recently, I've had excessive desires to simply stay in bed and not accomplish anything else. Maybe because I'm in a current waiting transition between graduating with my first degree and just waiting until I start a new school. I'm feeling anxious and impatient. I'm just incredibly anxious to get started with my new life--with moving out, and essentially starting all over again--that these months are going by incredibly slow, and I just want to sleep through all of it and wake up to my new life. Is that weird? Or does that even make sense?
