"Wake up Hazel It's 5:25 am."

"The 6:30 am train will be departing early today"

"If you want to catch it you must be out of the door by 6:25 am"

"Wait, Angelica, Repeat"

I jump up as fast as I could staring at my tv

"Wake up Hazel It's 5:29 am."

"The 6:30 am train will be departing early today"

"If you want to catch it you must be out of the door by 6:25 am"

" Oh, Sh*t, Oh Sh*t I'm gonna be late, I'm gonna be late boss will fire me"

Frantically I pick up my White cane and tap my way to the bathroom.

"Angelica turn on the lights"

Knowing by the flash of light I can tell Angelica responded to my response

I go ahead and feel for the bathroom doorknob and turn it.

"Tap Tap Tap"

My White cane makes these soothing noises as I walk to the sink.

Reachin to the sink lets me put my white cane to rest and I lean it against the closed toilet.

Not far but close enough to reach in case I need it.

Reaching for my toothpaste and toothbrush I turn on the faucet.

Leaking water. Another soothing sound I like to hear.

As a visually impaired person, I depend on my 5 senses more because it gives me security and a sense of safeness

While brushing my teeth I tune out and start daydreaming which I tend to do a lot of these days.

What would it be like having the ability to see?

Are my eyes the color of my name?

Seeing for myself of what I look like instead of depending people pitying

Me with the words " Pretty", "Cute", and "Vibrant".

"Hazel it's 5:46 am."

" Are you on track for catching the train?"

"If you are you should be in the shower"

"Blink Blink"

I tune back in and hear the faucet still running oh no im brushing my teeth

"What's wrong with me"

I mumble quietly to my self so Angelica can't overhear

"Angelica how much time left?"

I ask.

Finally washing out my mouth with Listerine

Angelica responds with

"23 minutes"

Stripping out of my pajamas I walk into the shower

"Angelica turn on shower"

The water powerfully hits my face and I jump a little

"Angelica decrease water pressure"

She complies and I start to relax until I hear angelica start counting down the time again

"Hazel you have two minutes to catch the train."

I groan and wash the soap off finishing off my shower

"Angelica turn off the shower"

She complies then proceeds to tell me I have missed my train.

Groaning in frustration I step out of the shower and grab my white cane and walk to my bedroom to call my boss.
