Day In The Life: Sophomore Needs Closure, Likes Editing

While our past staffer schedules have revolved around our rather unproductive weekends, Senior Staff Writer Julia Goodman brings the Class of 2018 her average Monday.

7:00 am: My alarm goes off. Ugh…five more minutes…

7:05 am: My alarm goes off again.

7:10 am: And again.

7:15 am: And again. Time for the most difficult decision of my day—to gym, or not to gym? If I decide to drag myself out of bed, I will be out and back by 8, in time to get ready for my first class.

8:00 am: Shower, get dressed, eat breakfast in five minutes (hopefully I remembered to get groceries this week). If there’s time, I make a quick cup of coffee in my suite’s shared Keurig, which is hands-down the best investment we ever made.

8:55 am: If the elevator gets here right when I need it to, I’ll be on time for CC; otherwise I’ll be fast-walking across campus like a crazy person.

9:02 am: I run through the doors. The fact that this class is in the awkward Carman classroom means I have to swipe into the building, costing me a valuable thirty seconds, but I make it just in time.

11:00 am: Done with my first class. Time for intro to comp sci, which means I definitely need coffee.

11:20 am: Arrive at comp sci awkwardly early. I use the extra time to do useful things such as browse Facebook.

1:00 pm: Out of class, and it’s time to go to work. After grabbing lunch because there is no food within five blocks of the office, I get on the subway.

1:30 pm: Why is the uptown 1 NEVER here when I get here?! Those people going downtown don’t have to wait 7 minutes for their subway.

1:45 pm: I get to work and spend a few peaceful hours copy-editing and pulling the best quotes from fiction pieces. Yes, editing is probably the most relaxing part of my day. Make of that what you will.

5:45 pm: Leave work to get on the subway. Take me back to campus, 1 train!

6:10 pm: Make it to my English discussion section in the nick of time, which is good because I hate being late for this class.

7:10 pm: Back at home, it’s time to make dinner.

8:00 pm: Time to start homework. Meh.

11:15 pm: As the amount of time I’ve been awake passes the 16 hour mark, I’m slowly losing the ability to focus. Luckily, I have something to look forward to.

12:00 am: Everyone in my suite gathers to watch the new episode of How I Met Your Mother. Even though it’s pretty bad now. We just need closure, okay?

12:30 am: Back to work.

1:00 am: If I read another word of this book, I’m going to fall asleep on the couch in our lounge. Guess that means it’s time for bed.

1:30 am: Sleep.

    Does anyone want to switch CC sections with me?
