This is my second post for the link up hosted by Amanda of Break the Sky.
This week is Spring break! This means no classes to attend or teach for me this week, but I do have some work to do, which will inevitably done in a hurry over the weekend. So far, I have just been trying to relax in order to gear up for the hectic couple of months ahead.
12am: Since it is technically a post covering the whole of tuesday, I will start from midnight. I am a night owl by nature, and so I spend the next few hours watching The West Wing. I started watching this series in October with my dad while I was in India and I got really hooked. As an aside, here is an article on reasons why The West Wing is amazing.
3am: Realise I am feeling a bit grumpy because my hair has been greasy/dirty all day. Long,hot showers at 3am are the best. I have quite dry hair and found out I had no deep conditioning hair masks left a few days ago, so I had to get a new one. Tested it out for the first time, and it seems to work really well.
4:15 am: Bedtime!
10:30am: Apartment inspection! We had spent hours on monday scrubbing the apartment clean, all for a ten second inspection. At least it’s done now.
11:30am: A rumbling tummy reminds me to get some food. I have some savoury oats that my parents had sent a while back as part of a care package.
12:30 pm: Realise I had almost forgotten to hand in tax forms to the university. I know, you can all be jealous of my exciting life now. So I quickly print out and sign the forms, get dressed and head out. Only to be greeted by this:
Spring is apparently the season for dust storms in Lubbock. Lucky me. A quick assessment at ground level showed that it was doable if we hurried. Thanking my past self for being too lazy to put in contact lenses, I managed to get the forms to the admin office and get back with only a little sand in my mouth.
2pm: I make myself a snack and quickly scoff it down in time for our Dungeons and Dragons group to meet online for a gaming session. Much laughter ensued as a character managed to trip on the same rock thrice in a row. Also other stuff involving robots and sub machine guns happened, but we won’t go into details here.
5:30pm: It was quite a long session today, so I cool off a bit by catching up on some blogs via Bloglovin. I find that it’s a great way to get the latest updates from all the various blogs in one place. After that, I get BF to make me a cup of tea, and settle down to read the next book in the Dresden Files series.
8pm: We had originally planned to go out for dinner, but because of the dust storm we decided to stay in instead. I made some rice and we caught up on the latest episode of How I Met Your Mother. Cherry pie and vanilla ice cream for pudding. Yum.
9pm: The combination of going out in the dust storm, smoke from the cooking (couldn’t open the windows, or everything would be covered in dust) and staring at a computer screen weren’t doing my (rather sensitive) eyes any favours. To try and cool my eyes down a bit, I soaked two cotton pads in cold water and placed them over my eyes for a few minutes. They help, but not much. So I decide to call it a day and go to bed.
9:30pm: Time to wind down for bed. While I didn’t want to put on a face mask, I wanted to give my skin a good pamper as I have kind of been ignoring it for the past few days, and I still have a few angry blemishes. So a good cleansing facial massage with my beloved Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm was in order. Since my face was looking/feeling a bit meh, I topped everything off with a few drops of the Clarins Blue Orchid Face Oil.
12pm: After a bit more reading (in the bed, where my eyes stung a lot less), I actually turned out the lights and went to sleep.
Hope you enjoyed a peek into my rather laid back day! What was your day like?
Until next time, Love, Me 🙂
