Hiii! I’m tired again. I feel the need to tell you that now because it will explain some questionable nutrition choices I made later in the day. And some questionable pictures I took of myself throughout the day. I blame it on the midterms. I’m absolved of all responsibility for the heinous pictures of my face you’re about to see.
Excuses, excuses. I know. You know what? Let’s make this simple; I’m going to give you guys a timeline of my day. A verrrry thorough timeline. Carry on with caution.
3:33am: Woke up, convinced I’d slept through my alarm. Checked my phone. Went back to sleep.
4:57am: Woke up, convinced I’d slept through my alarm. Checked my phone. Went back to sleep.
5:15am: Woke up, convinced I’d slept through my alarm. Checked my phone. Peed. Went back to sleep. Yeah, I’m a little bit (read: extremely) paranoid about sleeping through my alarm.
5:40am: Woke up and immediately snapped a picture of myself. I don’t know why I did this. I vaguely remember thinking, in my half-asleep haze, I should definitely take a picture and put it on Snack Therapy. Everyone will love seeing my bright, sunshiny face! Heh. Not so much.
5:45am: Desperately searched through the registration guide for open classes. Couldn’t find any.
6:00am: Registered for random classes just to make sure I hit the unit minimum. Don’t worry, friends. I’ll be able to start waitlisiting classes in the second round of registration 3 weeks from now.
6:15am: Tried to study for my midterm. Got bored. Watched The Mindy Project and commented on blogs.
6:45am: Studied some more. Got bored. Packed my lunch and tried to see the sunrise. Unsuccessful, but still pretty.
7:15am: Made a fab brekkie: A Greek yogurt, 5 strawbs, and a whole banana. (Can you spot the piece of basil in the second picture? Yeah, that’s a remnant from packing my lunch.)
7:52am: Wiped yesterday’s makeup out from under my eyes and redid my messy bun. Yes, I’m currently sporting yesterday’s makeup. Yes, I was bad and didn’t take it off last night. Very hooker-esque.
8:00am: Made my bed and tidied up my room.
8:21am: Threw my lunch into my bag, packed up my laptop, and started my 27-minute walk to class.
9:06am: Started midterm #1! This one was for my neurobiology, physiology, and behavior class. The midterm covered the skeleton, motor control, and the cardiovascular system. Fun shiz.
9:28am: (Yes, I’m a fast test-taker. Have been my whole life!) I walked to the Silo and started studying for my 2pm midterm. After a little blog reading, that is.
9:35am: Couldn’t resist any longer, and ate my 2 pieces of light string cheese + veggies. I think I need to pack more food for school… Eh, no. Too much work.
9:58am: Tweeted about my lack of control around delicious food. Enter aforementioned “questionable nutrition choices:” I bought gum and a diet soda in an attempt to not eat my entire supply of food before 10am.
10:35am: I chewed half a pack of gum and drank half of my soda. Thought about feeling guilty for all of the chemically goodness. Decided against it. On a side note, I’m definitely going to post about my consumption of artificially sweetened goods in my recap of this whole “no added sugar” thang. I’ve done a pretty great job of avoiding them, but sometimes a girl’s gotta indulge, ya hurr?
11:08am: Tried to take super sneaky pics of myself with Photo Booth, hence the awkward half smiles. Almost squealed with excitement at the fun new effects!
11:15am: More studying. And more and more and more. Lots of studying. Pee break. More studying. Met up with my new roommate who coincidentally is in the same class as me. Studied more. I’m a study stud. (Sorry, I had to.)
1:20pm: Lunch break! A Tupperware full of my Hidden Vegetable Pasta Bake. Dare I say it’s even better as leftovers? I couldn’t think of what it reminded me of, but then it hit me: Hamburger Helper! It tasted exactly like the cheeseburger flavor! So delicious.
2:10pm: Midtermed it up! I felt pretty good about it. I guess we’ll see…
2:48pm: Jaunted over to the bookstore, picked up a couple of things, and started to walk on home!
3:02pm: Helped out a kid who totally wiped out on his bike! He veered into the curb and knocked the wind out of himself. I, being the dramatic woman I am, though that he was dying. Nope. He just scraped up his knee and elbow. Don’t worry, I did my civic duty and let him use my water to clean off his wounds. Good karma points!
3:40pm: Showed our new roommate around the apartment. She’s moving in sometime in the next week or two!
4:30pm: Ate an apple and a quarter cup of peanuts.
4:45pm: OMG, still starving. Tried to wait the 20 minutes it supposedly takes to feel full. Couldn’t wait any longer. Proceed to eat a half-cup of pineapple while watching New Girl.
5:52pm: Changed into gymmin’ clothes and dragged my tired batooty to the gym. My only motivation? Watching an episode of Tia and Tamera.
7:15pm: Home from a bangin’ gym sesh! I busted out 60 minutes of high intensity ellipticalling and finished up with some leg work.
7:19pm: Contemplated showering before dinner. My rumbling stomach decided that that wasn’t an option. Threw together my billionth quinoa taco bowl in the past week. If this wasn’t so tasty, I would totally apologize for the boring pics as of late. That’s the reason I threw in tons of unflattering selfies today… To keep you guys entertained! I can only hope that you’re laughing with me and not at me. Don’t worry; I understand either way.
This post is getting long… I’m surprised if you’re still reading this! Hello? Is anybody still out there? If so, kudos to you.
Let me summarize: I spent the rest of my night working on a nutrition assignment.
P.S. It was super boring, and I never want to see the words “corpus callosum,” “facial dysmorphology, or “spared-cue navigation” again. Dang PubMed scientific research articles. So not the business.
P.P.S. Will you all be my Valentine? <3. Lots of love you all of you!
