Thank you God.
I made it through the unbelievable 36 hours.
Opening scene: 2.30pm, Lamont Library. The day’s been packed already, including missing classes to meet with Prof Altman. I come out of HSA-12 section (during which I receive an awful midterm grade that could well have already sunk my performance in this class), and hit the ground running. I race through Lamont, Widener and Cabot libraries getting the necessary books. Over the next 3.5hours, I desperately write very long emails to AfA, Judith and Prof Bishop.
6pm: Hors d’oeuvres at Quincy, dinner at Winthrop.
6.45: Dins call. We sing at the Quincy faculty dinner, which was fun
8pm-10.30pm: I work on the project proposal and budget.
10.30pm: Visit Adams to chat with Bryan, Lindsay and Alli. Veggie Planet pizzas and Herrell’s ice cream!
12midnight-2.15am: I finish up the proposal, send it to Doug for proof-reading and start on the BS55 problem set
2.15am-2.55am: I finish up the pset
3am: Sign out from HUCEP with Margen and Alfinio
3.15am-3.30am: polishing up BS55 pset when the fire alarm goes off (??!)
3.30am-4am: Chat with various half-asleep Old Quincy residents in the rain, I have a slice of club wheat bread and a small cup of coffee
4am-6am: Ec 10 pset. Ryan wakes up. I hop into the shower while he checks our Ec10 pset answers against each other.
6.50am-10am: Power nap
10.30am: I head to class having dressed and sent off another half dozen emails.
11am-12noon: I re-proof-read and edit my proposal, print everything out, send more emails, and write my Hist 1856 response paper. I get a starbucks fairtrade blend latte – my only nutrition for the day.
12noon-4pm: Ec10 section followed by Hist 1856 followed by BS 55 section. I stay amazingly awake.
4pm-5pm: I finish photocopying all the HCRP materials and walk to the SEO to turn the application in… along with over six hundred other applicants. (So hopeless.) I head to CVS and buy lots of stuff on sale. Mostly candy.
5pm: I pick up a bowl of pasta from the dining hall.
7.30-8pm: Wake up and dress for creative black tie opening of Carousel starring Evan as the lead.
8pm-11pm: Carousel at the Loeb mainstage and post-opening reception.
11pm-12midnight: I tidy my room.
