Day in the Life – Hannah Kapp-Klote ’13

9:00 a.m. – Wake up. Remember I have a paper due at 12:00 a.m. that I haven’t started. Decide to get up and start working on it! Drink coffee. Fall back asleep.

9:58 a.m. – Drink more coffee. Am late for class. Fall asleep again, but this time in the ARH. Progress? Paper not started.

11:00 a.m. – Eat Cheerios. Reflect. Do not start paper. Drink more coffee in attempt to bribe self to write paper.

11:02 a.m. – Do not write paper.

11:30 a.m. – Attend rally celebrating love and calling for individual, collective and institutional action! Dance to empowering music! Raise awareness! Promote solidarity! Drink coffee.

2:15 p.m. – Did the wrong reading for Anthropology. Try to compensate by saying the phrase “culture of violence” over and over again. Make everyone in class uncomfortable.

3:15 p.m. – Roleplaying game in Native American History. Get nostalgic for 1755 Pennsylvania.

4:05 p.m. – Class is over for the day! Time to start my paper. Drink coffee in celebration.

5:08 p.m. – Four new messages. Do not respond to any of them.

6:03 p.m. – Eat all of roommate’s off-brand Goldfish (Whales?). Wildly overcompensate roommate by putting ten dollars in the newly empty box and leaving it on her desk.

6:04 p.m. – Experience guilt. Drink more coffee.

8:00 p.m. – Forget to go to AJUST, a peer to peer education organization dedicated to unlearning privilege and oppression side by side in a nonhierarchical manner that meets every Tuesday and provides a safe space for everyone to talk about issues of social justice that sometimes none of us understand and sometimes has pizza. Paper still not started.

9:00 p.m. – Make Pterodactyls out of Bob’s coffee punch cards with Katie In [’13]. Paper still not started.

11:00 p.m. – Remember paper. Panic.

11:01 p.m. – Drink coffee.

11:35 p.m. – Frantically write paper, vomit from overconsumption of caffeine. Fun day!
