Pull a fish out of the water and suddenly you're eyeball to eyeball with an alien creature that exists in a reality we can't full comprehend. The lateral line along the side of a fish detects vibrations or movement in the surrounding water. Other fish, like those in the deep ocean, look like literal aliens from other worlds. Just think: only 5% of the ocean has been explored. I feel like I'm living in a strange world myself––I know most of my friends and family feel the same way. Hang in there. It could always be worse. Imagine getting pulled out of the water you've lived in your whole life, only to be held eye-to-eye with an alien primate you can't understand.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
