OK, I basically won at life today.
Woke up at 5:15am without an alarm, and went on a 4 mile run at Chautauqua just as the sun was rising.
Came home, did a bunch of push-ups (“bunch” used loosely here), showered, then finished and submitted final paper for my lexical semantics class a week early. Spent a little while catching up with boyfriend on gchat while editing an LSA Annual Meeting abstract on Wolof comparatives.
Before heading out, packed myself a sandwich for lunch with vegetables I got at the farmers’ mrkt and grilled at my friend Alec’s BBQ on Saturday.
Flashback to Sat, and me working the grill LIKE A PRO:
Went to my favorite local coffee shop, wrote & mailed postcards to various loved ones…
…and finished some readings before heading to my 10:30am class.
After class, I met with my total rockstar of an advisor for an hour over lunch (my sandwich=delicious). Overall, productive and confidence-boosting. Then had a little time to finish readings on the lawn outside the CU Boulder library before my 3:30-5:15pm class.
Had a great post-class meeting with the professor about some research I’m doing on causative constructions (which she is an expert on) in English, Japanese, and Wolof, and got some excellent advice on where to take this project next.
After, went straight to the local watering hole The Sink to meet friends, later moving to the local brewery for beer, sliders, and a banana split:
Came home, finished/submitted two homework assignments and a final paper outline, and did 40 pages of reading. (I also watched Rebecca Black’s new music video and painted my toenails. Crucial.)
Now, a bit of pleasure reading (halfway through Nothing to be frightened of by Julian Barnes) before sleep.
