Does committing an entire post to everything I eat and everything I do make it sound like I think I’m super interesting? Oh wait, yeah I am 😉 I mean for your average self lovin’, college goin’, blonde on a mission to master doing her lipstick one day. I’ve been seeing a lot of these “Day in the Life” style posts go up among my blogging buddies like Alyssa and Megan, so I thought what better way to join the party than to join “Day in the Life” with WIAW. Food, fun(ny jokes about my average day), and most importantly: fame. Just kidding, no fame. But keep reading anyways.
A little after 7:00 AM: start to wake up, sit up, check my phone, text Jairo back good morning, fall back onto my pillow, scroll through Instagram a bit, & finally decide to get my butt into the shower
7:20 AM: Throw on some jeans & a tank top & head into the kitchen. Take my multivitamin & drink a big bottle of water while my coffee is brewing and chat with mom
7:40: Make my breakfast & lunch for a day at UCLA, get my bag together for school
8:00 AM: Eat half of my bagel, the half with the cream cheese spread hot out of the toaster, pour my coffee, and leave for school
8:15 AM: leave for UCLA, see that the estimated time in traffic is 54 minutes, and try not to sob
8:40 AM: Eat the other half of my bagel, the avocado mashed half, while trying to merge on the 405 South..not the best timing
8:41 AM: Do a mini dance in my car seat for managing not to get avocado on my white tank top. Feel momentary shock.
9: 05 AM: Rejoice because I’m almost to my parking lot at school
9:06 AM: Make a wrong turn even though I’ve driven here every other day for the past year. DAMN IT
9:15 AM: Finally park the car, Skype with Jairo for a bit before class from my phone
9:45 AM: Rush to class on the other side of campus, up the hill, because I lost track of time talking to Jairo
10:00 AM: Slide into my seat right at 10 and avoid getting the death glare from my tiny, loud Spanish Literature prof
11:40 AM: Get out of class a few minutes early, stop in the cafe on campus to grab a spoon for my yogurt
11:42 AM: Take a photo of my yogurt which warrants a weird look from headphones boy next to me.
11:43 AM: Realize I didn’t get said yogurt on Snapchat and curse myself for not sticking with this new social media platform. Take another picture for snapchat *headphones boy stares* and realize it’s out of focus. Take another and mentally give the finger to headphones boy
12:00 PM: Get to my Feminism within Islam class and settle in to watch a documentary. Consider leaving when I realize the prof isn’t coming
12:03 PM: Receive the video questions to be turned in at the end of class, damn!
12:30 PM: Try to hold my focus on the documentary but end up scrolling through Insta every few minutes
1: 15 PM: Start to get hungry but don’t want to whip out tuna salad and make the whole room angry (angrier than they already are due to said video questions crushing their momentary hope of dipping out). Settle on the new bar I brought today from the Gluten Free Expo
1:16 PM: Take a bite, OH MY GOD THIS IS LIKE AN ALMOND JOY IT’S CANDY
1:17 PM: Start to feel a little guilty for having a “candy bar” before eating my tuna.
1:18 PM: Tell those ED thoughts #BYEEFELICIA and continue enjoying my bar
1:30 PM: Start reading blogs online, stumble onto “10 Ways to Practice Self Care with Kids”, absolutely fall in love with how sweet and inspiring it is, try not to cry
1:40 PM: Send “10 Ways to Practice Self Care with Kids” to my brother who’s expecting his first little one in June
1:41 PM: Get legitimately sad, then a tad angry that I don’t know more people with kids / expecting kids to send this too (hormones is that you?!)
1:45 PM: Turn in my video questions, leave class, and have my fork out and tuna tupperware open within 30 seconds of stepping out the door
1:50 PM: Eat my tuna salad (full fat mayo + relish + honey dijon mustard) on my way to my next class)
2:00 PM: Sit down in my Hagiography and Sadomasochism in Spanish Lit (yeah you read that right..) class
2:05 PM: Open my bag of sweet, sugar dusted plantain chips to get the tuna aftertaste out of my mouth and end up eating the whole bag
2:15 PM: Oooh a classmate is presenting on philosophy today…this is actually kind of interesting
2:45 PM: Wait is he still presenting..how long is he going to go for?
3:15 PM: He can’t seriously still be speaking, can he?
3:45 PM: Okay I get that he’s passionate about this and everything but he hasn’t taken a breath in TWO HOURS
3:50 PM: Leave class, post on Insta about my new blog post on Why I’m So Open about my Eating Disorder
3:52 PM: Awkwardly encounter my professor in line in the ladies room
3:54 PM: Think “Oh my god she’s totally listening to me pee I HATE THIS”
4:15 PM: Get to my car & drive home from UCLA
5:00 PM: Make myself a bowl of watermelon, turn on Gossip Girl, and push baby Relic’s butt off the bed every 30 seconds for trying to steal aforementioned watermelon
6:15 PM: Make dinner: GF ramen + olive oil + garlic powder + 2 scrambled eggs
6:40 PM: Have some gluten free cookies & a spoon of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter
7:00 PM: Clean up from dinner and do the dishes from the past week
7:30 PM: Mom gets home and has a package for me from Aerie!
7:45 PM: Fall in love with my new Aerie bikini and spend way too much time in front of the mirror
8:30 PM: Convince mom to go out for McDonald’s Ice Cream with me
9:30 PM: Have a spoon of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter
10:30 PM: Fall asleep watching Gossip Girl
