This is my post for the month of July for the link up hosted by Amanda of Break the Sky.
10am: I wake up rather bleary eyed after a measly 5 hours of sleep.My sleep schedule is rather muddled up at the moment but I have a lot to get done today, so rise and shine it is. *grumpy face*
10.05am: Jump into shower to properly wake up, jump out, get very suspicious because I managed to get my contact lenses in properly on the first try, get dressed.
10.40am: Head into the department to borrow our friends car for the day (because she is lovely!) and head to the grocery store to pick up a few essentials.
12.00pm: Come back to apartment, put away the shopping and then walked down to the bank to withdraw cash so that we could get…
12.30pm: Eat our sandwiches while watching an episode of Dad’s Army. After this, BF, who got no sleep at all, decided to take a nap so that he wouldn’t crash the car driving around. While a sensible person would have gotten some work done, I decided to goof off instead.
3.30pm: Having finally rousted BF out of bed, we get started on our main mission for the day: Apartment viewings. We had shortlisted 5 to go have a look around. One had no flats available at the moment; one looked rather run down from the outside, so we decided not to go in and the third was a nice but rather cramped apartment. The fourth and fifth were both really nice ones, and now we have to decide between those two.
5.30pm: After we finished the apartment viewings, we drive back to the department to return the car to our friend. I wanted to pick up a few things from CVS and drop off some clothes for donation, but unfortunately we were running late and these things had to be skipped.
6.15pm: Back to the apartment! After a bit of discussion we decided that the only way to decide which apartment to choose is by making a pros and cons list HIMYM style. BF decides to go in for second nap of the day. (This is why I love academia!)
7.15pm: I suddenly feel incredibly tired. I wash my hair in a nice warm shower to make myself feel better. It works!
7.45pm: I tweak a bit of my code for work (which usually takes a while to run), and set it off to run on the University server. Astronomers rarely look through telescopes (for serious work) anymore. It’s usually staring at screens that look like this for extended periods of time.
8.00pm: Cooking time! Ever since having a Starbucks Cool Lime Refresher when I was in Vegas, I have been thinking about it. So during my earlier grocery shop I picked up the ingredients to make it myself at home, following this recipe.
8.30pm: A few weeks ago my mum sent me a care package with some instant idli mix and a microwavable vessel to cook them in. I thought I would try them out now. So I mixed the batter, let it sit for a while and set it off to cook. I also make some instant sambar to go with it.
9.00pm: Idlis are ready! Now I can explain that idlis are fluffy rice pancakes, but that wouldn’t do it any justice. Try to hunt out a place to get them if you can. Now I go wake up BF with hot idlis because I am nice like that.
10pm: We watch another episode of Dad’s Army, and I nearly kill myself laughing. Standard. After this, I read my book for a bit and then write up this blog post.
What was your day like?
Until next time, Love, Me :)
