Hello for the third time this week!
I thought I’d check in with y’all again this week with another one of my favorite kinds of posts— day in the life! Everyone keeps asking me if I can believe that I’m almost done being a college freshman. My answer is always, “Sometimes I have to tell myself that I’m in college.”
I still need nap time and snack time, so I’m basically still in preschool.
Nevertheless, here I am in my last month of freshman year at Boston University, and here is what a typical day during this hectic time of year looks like!
6:40 AM— Alarm goes off // Realize that sun is peering through the windows and panic for a split second, thinking I overslept. But alas, it’s just springtime finally. // Check emails on phone
6:45 AM— Bathroom, brush teeth, put in contacts, etc.
6:55 AM— Eat some frozen banana pieces // Pray
7:05 AM— Get stuff ready and run to the gym // I wear my workout clothes to sleep if I know I’m going to the gym in the morning.
7:15 AM— Arrive at the gym and meet my buddy PJ there // Work out
- dynamic warmup
- upper body strength
- rowing + thruster workout
8:10 AM— Walk back from the gym
8:30 AM— Arrive at the dining hall and eat breakfast with PJ, Sean, and Rachel // I failed to take a photo, but I ate scrambled eggs, bacon(!), and oatmeal with coconut, honey, peanut butter, and banana
9:15 AM— Go back to room to shower // Realize I’m still hungry (yes, even after that large breakfast) and eat a mini blueberry oatmeal bar
9:40 AM— Run out the door to meet a friend before class to go over some homework
10:00 AM— Organic chem lecture
11:00 AM— Anatomy lecture
12:00 PM— Writing class // class got out 10 minutes early, hooray!
12:40 PM— Lunch // A mighty delicious lunch! I enjoy every last bite.
salad of mixed greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, tuna, feta, and honey dijon + turkey and roasted vegetables
1:00 PM— Decide that I want to write this post!
1:30 PM— Walk back to the dorm to get some gum [to fix the tuna breath] and a bigger jacket for my tour // See that it’s supposed to snow in an hour. SO MUCH FOR SPRINGTIME, BOSTON.
2:00 PM— Tour! // A little sleet never hurt anyone…
3:30 PM— Go back to the dorm to change my soaking wet jeans // Steal some dining hall peanut butter out of desperation after running out of my own peanut butter // Eat snack of frozen banana with the PB
4:00 PM— Meet a friend to study for our linguistics exam
5:15 PM— Dinner with PJ, Jon, and Rachel // “ballpark night” at the dining hall
salad with carrots, tomatoes, beets, roasted red peppers, Greek dressing + Italian sausage and peppers
apple crisp a la mode because it’s my FAVORITE
6:00 PM— Anatomy lab // look at cat cadavers, cows and pigs in utero, and…never mind
7:10 PM— Go back to the dorm to drop off my backpack and put on some warmer clothes for intramural softball with the Catholic Center team
7:25 PM— Start walking to the field across campus // Get a text from my friend that the game is cancelled // Back to the dorm
7:40 PM— Check emails + work on planning next semester’s schedule // Find out that I will be dead last for class registration this time around…Oh dear. // Snack on banana and peanut butter
9:00 PM— Homework and studying // Some more banana and peanut butter in there
12:00 AM— Finish typing this post
12:30 AM— Get ready for bed! (I have a 11AM class on Thursdays, don’t worry 🙂 )
A busy but wonderful day indeed! I’m also realizing that I ate a lot of fats yesterday. Bacon, eggs, cheese, peanut butter, more peanut butter, ice cream, sausage… But hey, don’t fear the fat!
So tell me:
What did you eat for lunch yesterday?
What were you doing at 7 AM, 3 PM, and 8 PM yesterday?
What kinds of fun fats did you eat yesterday?
