6:00 a.m. – Wake up to sound of alarm. Briefly consider finishing the homework I didn’t get to last night. Choose sleep instead.

8:15 a.m. – Wake up again; somehow manage to finish all my work and drink four cups of coffee before class.

9:00 a.m. – Head off to class for the morning. Sincerely regret poor decisions made the previous evening involving the Oscars and Carlo Rossi.

12:30 p.m. – Done with class for the day. Meet Ashur Bratt ’12 for lunch in the dining hall. Have grilled cheese sandwich and black bean soup. Also more coffee.

1:15 p.m. – Waste time on internet playing Tetris. Set new high score.

1:30 p.m. – Fall asleep while reading for Spanish. Wake up with pool of drool on notes.

1:45 p.m. – Make trip to optometrist to see about getting damage caused at the “Fucked Up” concert last week repaired.

2:00 p.m. – Head off to the basement of Bucksbaum to practice piano and work on Aural Skills homework. Anna Friel ’10 mocks the way I walk en route.

5:00 p.m. – Finally escape the music dungeon with sanity more or less intact.

5:30 p.m. – Finish Spanish and take nap before dinner

6:15 p.m. – Meet Chris Wilson ’11 for weekly dinner. Discuss various bits of gossip.

9:00 p.m. – Head back to Bucksbaum for an hour. Enjoy the walk over in the warm night air. Am excited about the fact spring is less than a month away.

10:00 p.m. – Finished with work. Try to remember the last time I took shower. Give up after several minutes and put hygiene off until tomorrow … possibly Wednesday.

11:16 p.m. – Drunk tennis player wanders into room. Offers me his own nipple hair. I take one to sell on eBay in case he ever becomes famous at some point in the future.

1:00 a.m. – Clear most of the clothes and trash off bed and fall asleep.
