10:30 – Wake up, check phone, decide it’s due time to get out of bed. Realize it’s Dec. 1st… woo! 20 days until home, 25 days till Christmas!
10:45 – Sit down at computer, check the social mediaz, watch Bones on Netflix on my second monitor. Have minor freakout that the Exposition Park Rose Garden is featured on the show (this is in between the USC campus and the Coliseum football stadium).
11:15 – Make breakfast of oat bran, cinnamon, stevia, banana, greek yogurt (mixed with more cinnamon and stevia), almond/coconut milk. In that order. It was a very photogenic breakfast……….
11:30 – Eat while wasting time on theBERRY. Then start working on my study guide for my astronomy final (even though it’s in two weeks…)
12:30 – Realize I need to officially wake up before I start studying. Head outside for a short run around campus.
1:00 – Shower and pack backpack. Put on frumpy clothes, complete with “eh” face.
1:30 – Walk to Starbucks for a study sesh. Enjoy a coffee with peppermint (obsessed) while working outside.
3:30 – Refill time!!! I’m so glad that Starbucks didn’t get rid of the $0.50 refills for gold card members.
4:00 – Walk back to the apartment and make lunch. Defrost some broccoli and cauliflower, cook with 2 eggs and some whites, add some marinara. Another very photogenic meal (not). Then an apple. Then some more studying.
4:45 – Study break/hangout at Lindsey’s apartment. Check out the view of downtown from the 8th floor of her apartment building!
5:45 – Drive to Whole Foods in West Hollywood. Decide that LA driving is the worst, turn up music, dance, try to lift my spirits. It took 40 MINUTES to go 8 MILES.
6:30 – Restock on oat bran and some other stuff.
7:30 – Arrive back at school. Vow to never drive on a rainy LA night ever again.
8:00 – Eat dinner from the Whole Foods hot/cold bar. Left to right: kale/spinach/tabouleh/nooch (added at my apt), caesar salad, butternut squash. And then a Clif Z bar.
8:30 – Compile this post. Not sure what the rest of the night holds. Maybe more studying. But probably not.
Q4U: Any good book recommendations?
