Brandon Jordan Course of Study: Pharmacy Page 1 Brandon Jordan, A Glimpse of Me When I awake to the thunderous sound of my alarm clock, and frantically search for the snooze button, one thought comes to my mind: "Why am I awake?” The time is 5:30 AM; all is dark and silent, my fatigued body feels completely shattered of liveliness, and I struggle to open my eyes, while warm and cozy in my comfy bed.
