7:45 a.m.— Alarm goes off. Must be time to go ham… I can already tell it’s Wednesday.
7:50 a.m.— Brewin’ up that hotness.
7:51 a.m.— Say a quick prayer… Please God, don’t let this coffee wake the slumbering Megan.
7:52 a.m.— Oh God, it’s her. I pour her some coffee and hand her a slinky. She’s preoccupied as I make my escape.
7:55 a.m.— Quickly set out some carrots for Julia. Julia loves carrots.
8:00 a.m.— Head to Burling. Print out articles—I’ve already read them, I swear—and figure out what I need to do today.
8:20 a.m.— Check the fantasy baseball squad.
8:22 a.m.— Send Sabathia and Ethier to Marques, receive Bautista and Morrow. Gotta love Joey Bats.
8:27 a.m.— Feeling great already—just upgraded the offense and the caffeine is starting to kick in. Very productive start to the day.
8:30 a.m.— Apparently it’s actually 8:33. The Burling clock and the Bucksbaum clock are at odds with each other. Sorry Professor Delmenico!
8:33 a.m.— She still welcomes me warmly—Delmenico is so damn cool.
9:10 a.m.— One of my classmates just said she last visited Disneyland in the 1900s… I glance around the room.
10:00 a.m.— Say what’s up to Griffin as he’s walking into the ’Baum. Calves are looking great today, buddy.
10:21 a.m.— Shoot a text to the beautiful Aniela Wendt. She’s in class so I know she won’t text back.
10:22 a.m.— She texted back. Ooh, she bad.
10:50 a.m.— Snag that Outteezy on my beezy. Bagel and milk everyday. Chat it up with some Grillellians…Dom’s working, too.
12:20 p.m.— Medical Anthropology time, baby
1:50 p.m.— Snap out of another daydream. Why would I ever want to be a badass doctor in the middle of the jungle anyway?…
2:10 p.m.— Walk into class. Prof. Tapias says hello. I swear she still expects me to walk in at 3:25 every day.
2:53 p.m.— The conditions in Haiti are harrowing. We all need to step in and help, but how?
3:30 p.m.— Mind abuzz, I leave the room. Jack “My Boy” Adams is just as frustrated as I am. At least he has Pat back home.
3:45 p.m.— It’s so on! Hayes and Cody want some. Luke and I lace up, grab the rock, head over to the court.
4:37 p.m.— Hayes is off to a hot start. They win a close game 1.
4:56 p.m.— Hayes is still so hot. Doesn’t even need Cody. They win game 2 running away.
5:14 p.m.— Hayes scored all 15 points. Cody’s eating chalk again. They sweep the series.
5:22 p.m.— Drag Luke into the weight room, but once we’re inside he escapes up to the Stairmaster.
6:50 p.m.— Hit the showa.
7:15 p.m.— Grab a quick bite at the d-hall and meet up with Aniela.
7:30 p.m.— Blumpy wants to hang out, but I graciously decline. Instead, he spends the evening with Cheesecake the rat.
8:35 p.m.— Aniela and I take a study break…by going to the grille for snacks 😉
9:15 p.m.— Close the books. It’s time for some ModFam, maybe some New Girl, sprinkle on some Glee and I think we’re good.
9:17 p.m.— Go ahead, talk sh*t about Glee. I bet you watch Gossip Girl. That’s way worse, Nitz.
11:30 p.m.— Time for bed. Good night Grinnell College. You just lived a day in the life of Jesse Ney.
