No Fun or Games

Tomorrow is my final exam for Game Theory, which turned out to be my most difficult class this semester. Despite its misleading name–this class is anything but a game. It’s so hard! I’ve taken much higher level econ classes in the past and gotten by without no trouble but this class has just been a killer. Ugh. At this point I don’t even care anymore and just want it to be over!


Since I knew I would be spending the majority of the day in the library I decided to head out for a run first thing this morning. We’re having some crazy weather here in Boston and today it reached 90*!! Holy cow! I did 4ish miles and was sweating buckets by the end. Before I left I had a Kashi bar for some fuel. 



The heat really got to me and even after chugging a ton of water and taking a cold shower my appetite was just not there. I knew I needed something to get my brain working so I had a creamy, cool bowl of yogurt and banana. I definitely made up for my lack of appetite throughout the day—when I run outside my metabolism goes into overdrive or something, I’ve been eating all day long!



As expected, I was in the library the whole entire day. I packed a turkey sandwich with carrots, tomatoes, and PB crackers for lunch, which I unfortunately ate while working away so I couldn’t even enjoy it.



A cara cara orange. LOVE THESE! Also when I stopped back at the house mid-day I desperately needed a pick-me-up so I had some amazing blondies that I had stuck in the freezer to prevent me from eating the entire tray at once, and a few hershey kisses. It’s just been one of those days, you know?




I had a meeting at 5 for my sorority and then I headed back to the library with a quick detour at the campus center to pick up a big salad and akmaks for dinner. I was starving and literally inhaled it! It was good.




I was sitting in a window-less section of the library with intense fluorescent lights and was intently studying, which caused me to totally lose track of time. All of a sudden a wave of tiredness hit me and I noticed it was already almost 10:00! While I still have a lot of work to do, I don’t like walking home that late at night because it’s pretty unsafe here. I basically sprinted back to my house and realized that not only was I tired, but I was hungry too!  I had a biscotti which got melty from being in my hot, hot, hot room and then I cut up a delicious apple with cinnamon and now I’m ready to get back to studying.



No matter how it goes tomorrow, come 11:45 it’ll be over and I’ll be so relieved!

    Good luck tomorrow, girly! It’s almost over!

    I love the way your biscotti got all melty. Although I don’t love hot and humid rooms – it’s give and take 😉

    Good luck with your test 🙂 That’s the down side of me taking night classes. I hate walking alone by myself, I am just asking to get mugged.
