Do you have that one day a week that feels especially draining?
I’m in class all day (separated by awkward blocks of free time) I usually have a ton of homework, and I have class early on Wednesday. So pretty much, Tuesday’s feel too short entirely.
Here’s how today went.
I woke up to overcast icky all-I-wanna-do-is-stay-in-bed-weather.
My first bus came a little late, so I missed my train. Which caused me to run 20 minutes late.
Of course today I had a midterm at 9 30. That we had to use a scantron for. I didn’t have a scantron. My friend said he’d get me one, but it’s a big class, so I couldn’t find him. I was lucky enough to sit next to the sweetest girl who had an extra. Not sure how I did on the midterm. It was pretty dang tough.
I went and worked on the magazine after, which was stressful. Due to space constraints, one of my stories may get chopped in half. I’m pissed.
Julio and I took a break from the magazine to grab some delicious veggie burritos for lunch. He went to New York over spring break, so I got to hear all about it!
My other 2 classes went fine, no complaints. I even snacked on a tasty Madeline and a big ol’ cup of coffee in between them.
After my last class got out at 6 30 I went outside and BAM there was seriously a howling gale and a torrential downpour. It was bleak. So very bleak.
I had to wait in this rain for 15 minutes for the train.
When I finally got on the bus, soaking and pooped, I sat down and hoped for a speedy trip home. Just my luck, that didn’t happen. There was a delay and the train stopped for 45 minutes. Phone dead. Computer dead. Pissed.
My day improved by leaps and bounds after that fiasco. I got on a new train, that wasn’t delayed, then hopped on the bus to take me to my nice warm home.
Fletcher greeted me and rubbed up against my ankles while I made dinner.
What did I slap together? A pastrami, provolone, avocado sandwich with coarsely ground mustard on a cheese roll and some creamy cashew carrot ginger soup topped with garlic rye crisps. DUHHHHH
Ohhhhhh, it sure did warm my soul.
Then I put my comfort slacks on, turned on the heater, and got into bed to start reading my new book. It’s called Farm Anatomy by Julia Rothman. It’s incredible so far. Can’t wait to tell ya more about it!
I also have a few magazines to catch up on, namely Saveur – The Vegas Issue, and Lucky Peach – The Cooks and Chefs Issue!
It’s not very often that I get to pleasure read, so you better believe I take advantage of it every second I can!
I also take every opportunity to play with my little man
Warm meals, reading, and kittens – that’s what I like to do on rainy nights by myself.
What do you like to do when you’re alone and it’s cold out?
