a day in the life of a college senior

7:00 alarm goes off. wake up. realize you still feel sick and decide to sleep in a little longer.

7:20ish wake up, unaware of the time, rush into the bathroom hoping it's earlier rather than later. shower.

7:35 realize you have more time that you thought. get ready for the day [in the dark because roommate is sleeping]. read blogs whilst eat granola and yogurt for a little breakfast. swallow about 3 pills hoping that your multivitamin has magical healing powers.

8:20 open laptop. proceed in writing music 201 paper on Sandro Botticelli. love renaissance art. [sarcasm] decide to watch Glee while writing. that proves to be productive and inspirational [ps what did quinn do to her hair??]

9:30 submit paper draft. woot. pack up bag. final attempt at looking cute while sniffling. jam to tunes. walk to campus.

10:00 exercise physiology. determine it is impossible to concentrate while your nose is winning the marathon it is running.

10:53 head up to the jkb. walking slow because you don't even care if you are late. discover that walking up stairs does wonders in clearing the sinuses.

11:01 music 201. find a seat on the floor. not too bad. start this blog post while learning about gothic architecture. get out of class 15 minutes early. booyah!

11:35 find out that brother's best friend got called on a mission to kenya. extreme jealousy. eat an delicious apple bought from a vending machine. they don't only have junk food.

12:00 masterpieces of english literature. get called on to comment on john sullivan's "description of a city shower." eeek. saying something that sounds pretty stupid and wondering why you decided this would be a fun class.

12:52 head over to the wilk for the career fair. run into the beautiful sarah blackhurst.  yes! i have an accomplice in my storming of said career fair! 

1:35 after successfully talking to 3 potential employers, i leave the career fair scared to death of graduation. think i'll stay in college. thanks. buy dayquil and airborne to cure these sniffles.

2:00 yoga. this actually does great things for my cold. i feel bad though for the period snif that probably disturbs everyone's deep breathing and concentration. sorry yogis.

3:05 get home and promptly collapse. cold + studying = not happening.

4:30 wake up and reset my alarm for 4:40. 10 minutes just might do the trick.

4:40 meh. guess i better get dressed and get my butt up to technical writing.

4:51 leave the bda. tune-age commences. run into neal as i get to the jkb. planning of waffle wednesday (re-vamped).

5:10  get to class. teacher is mia. so our group does peer review before he gets there. might as well get it outta the way.

5:17 teacher arrives. we learn about plagiarism. quite a thrilling subject. i amuse myself with "instructables." did you know you can make "worms" from jello? halloween idea. i think yes!

5:55 class is over. i peace out.

6:10 find a ride to the store to buy flour for waffle wednesday. and wait for him to come. [i got really good at waiting while in africa so nbd.]

7:26 daniel finally gets here. run to smith's. get sassy because i see the latest boy who was a tool bag to me. acquire orange juice, tissue, and flour.

7:54 visiting teaching. fail. neither of my visiting teachees are home. guess i'll try back tomorrow- with treats. my own visiting teachers come. i decide i like them.

8:19 head over to the colony for waffle wednesday with neal. and some other people. i don't know them so they aren't important. attempts at getting to know them. the only two who are semi-social back at me are alexis and dan. they are cool. i decide we can be friends. awkward nerd dance. then head home.

10:42 in pjs. about to hit the pillow- but not before reading the BOM.

and that my friends, is a day in the busy life of beka (and i didn't even get any studying or running in. fail.)

  1. Woah! Did you go to waffle wednesday at the colony in apt 420? Haha, if so, that's great. If not, you should've ;) That's where Chelle's bf lives and we went to waffle wednesday a few times when we lived there.
    Busy day! And I hope you get better soon!
