7:00 a.m.— Cell phone alarm wakes me up. Think about going for a run.
7:05 a.m.—Reconsider run. Nahh.
8:00 a.m.—Alarm goes off again. Feels like I fell asleep for 2 hours. Jump out of bed. “Did I miss my class?!”
8:00 and 10 seconds—Sigh of relief
8:15 a.m.—Check the weather. Today’s a scorcher. Look for long enough skirt to cover up gigantic bruise on the back of my leg that I acquired trying to hop through Read 1st window.
8:30 a.m.—Greeted by the always-cheerful Connie [Coleman, Student Affairs] as I enter the JRC for breakfast.
8:32 a.m.—Damnit, the egg line is out the door. Opt for a delicious bowl of Dining Hall oatmeal. You know they say your breakfast says a lot about you.
9:00 a.m.—Global Development Studies – forgot to clean my glasses. Can barely see through the fog.
9:15 a.m.—The U.S. spends $125 billion on counter-terrorism? No surprise.
9:53 a.m.—Run to the John Chrystal Center.
10:00 a.m.—Greet tour group, begin tour, realize I’m incredibly old.
10:20 a.m.—Get the inevitable question, “so, what is the party scene at Grinnell?”
10:21 a.m.—Reply “what party scene?”
10:40 a.m.—Show tour my room with king size bed. “How did you get that?” “I’m the President, b*tch.”
10:55 a.m.—Drop tour off late. Oops.
11:00 a.m.—Go to SGA Offices. Try to finish some reading for poli sci seminar. Check email from [sgaprez] account, personal account and Gmail account. Begin to reply to some of them.
2:05 p.m.—Politics of Islam seminar.
2:30 p.m.—Why am I a poli sci major?
4:15 p.m.—Attempt to take a 10-minute power nap.
4:16 p.m.—Forgot to get a receipt from cabinet retreat. Decide I will in fact not have a nap.
5:00 p.m.—Receive phone call from Romney for President. Hang up as soon as possible.
5:15 p.m.—Go back to SGA Offices. Hang with cabinet, answer emails, check dinner menu.
6:00 p.m.—Dinner. To my delight, its gyro night!
6:30 p.m.—Ice cream? Yes.
6:45 p.m.—Oops, the ice cream was a bad choice. Why am I lactose intolerant?
7:05 p.m.—Back to SGA Offices. Answer more emails.
9:00 p.m.—Interviewed by the S&B about SGA and the coming year.
9:30 p.m.—Time for office hours. Sit waiting for people to come talk to me.
10:00 p.m.—Nobody shows. COME VISIT ME!
10:05 p.m.—Eat chocolate cake that Sara Galenbeck ’13 left in my office.
10:40 p.m.—Do some readings.
1:30 a.m.—Finish readings.
1:45 a.m.—Make sure windows are open. Put pajamas on. Climb into king size bed.
1:50 a.m.—Sweet dreams.
