7:00 a.m.—Three alarms go off. I snooze all of them. Ducks, phone ringing, old car engine: you will never wake me.

7:20 a.m.—Alarms go off again, realize I don’t have that much time left. Old car, you’ve finally triumphed with your obnoxious revving.

7:50 a.m.—Run my way to class, get lost in Noyce along the way. Consult prospie for directions.

9:50 a.m.—Morning Classes are over, Grill(e?) time, all the time.

10:20 a.m.—Talking with friends about how hard classes are. Chemistry, why must your problem sets take foreverrrrrr?

11:00 a.m.—Debate whether I’m hungry enough for lunch. The Grille is hard to leave.

11:30a.m.—Think about food, peer pressure with the burger and fries combination that awaits me finally makes my decision easier.

12:00 p.m.—It’s time for lunch. Fight my way through the crowds of fellow hungry Grinnellians. Question why I left the Grille.

12:40 p.m.—Get ready for class, return to the Grille to recharge after a brutal lunch rush.

1:15 p.m. —Time for French. Plenty of talking, but no baguettes!

2:15 p.m.—Math time! Struggle-bussing those integrals.

3:00 p.m.—Grille Time, again.

4:00 p.m.—Time to get serious and do some homework. Actually, more Grille time.

5:00 p.m.—Is there anything good for dinner tonight? I hope so. Otherwise, I’ll be staying in the Grille.

6:00 p.m.—Dinner—SUCCESS! Hawaiian sandwich with pineapple gets me way too excited.

7:00 p.m.—Keep studying (until the 10 p.m. hunger hits.)

10:00 p.m.—Time for some bagels at the Grille for a short study break. Toasty toasty goodness.

11:00 p.m.—Get back to work. It wasn’t that short of a study break after all…

12:00 a.m.—Still working. Readings for class battle Facebook for my attentions. Facebook often wins.

1:00 a.m.—Back to home sweet home in Main. Sleeping time!
