You wake up, wipe the drool from your cheek, grimace at the state of your breath after catching a whiff before turning over ready to go back to sleep. You're content in the full day's work you've just completed. Just in case, you check your phone and see that it's 7 AM. You slowly realise that your sub-conscious hates you. Rather than the literally endless dream-scapes your psyche can provide for you, your idiot brain chose to play out the work day ahead. The day you're about to go and experience all over again, but this time, for realsies.
Nobody likes a try-hard, ain't that the truth. Americans and Brits are similar for a number of reasons, but their approach to "trying" in school is one of many differences. British people are brought up to be acutely aware of their country's swashbuckling and domineering history, before being gently reminded that despite it leading to the title of "Great" Britain, colonialism is pretty darn bad. Where, US children are taught to celebrate their country's independence, positioning themselves as proud and unafraid to talk about it. British kids are taught realism is very different from pessimism without even looking at that fellow "Optimism," while Americans are dared to dream that dank American Dream.
