‘Me Day’

Yesterday was a really nice day, all about me. I took the day off of hard-core work and studying to take some time to unwind from the stress of last week and get a little relaxation and peace in. It was lovely.


I guess my parents could tell how down in the dumps I’ve been recently so yesterday I was surprised with the prettiest bouquet of flowers. It seriously made my day–how sweet are my parents!


This morning I had a bowl of yogurt, cereal, and pear along with the sun and my gorgeous flowers! Then it was out the door for a review session followed by my day of ME!




It was HOT out today but there was a nice breeze and the sun was shining so I took advantage of the weather because with my luck it will start snowing again tomorrow! I walked into Harvard Square (about 3 miles each way) and used that as my exercise for the day. I bought 2 cute dresses (including my graduation dress!) from Urban Outfitters. Yay! 

I got really hungry from walking and shopping so I stopped into Au Bon Pain for a salad. I can’t remember what this was called but it had: lettuce, tomato, grapes, cranberries, asiago cheese, and the best croutons ever. I had it with balsamic vinaigrette and it was the perfect light meal for such a hot day.



I did have some schoolwork to do so I popped into Starbucks for the air-conditioning and an ice coffee while I did some reading for a few hours. I also had the WCMN Luna that I packed. Divine.


Then I had an appointment with my nutritionist which went really well and I’m feeling better about getting back on track and things feel a little less out of control. 

When I got home I was so hot and my room was literally 94* in my room, I was dying! I chugged a bunch of water and then ate some fruit: apple and orange to hold me over to a late dinner at 8.


Last night was “Roasts” for my sorority where the Little Sisters tell embarrassing stories about the Seniors and it was so much fun! My mom and dad sent my littles some really embarrassing pictures and stories from my childhood and there are some hilarious videos of my college years. My Littles put together a great roast, and while it was mortifying, it was so funny and a lot of fun. I’m going to miss them so much next year!

    Your parents are so sweet! Glad you had a nice day… graduation is SO CLOSE!

    Oh- my big English paper is about, more or less, what it means to write the “neo-slave narrative” in a post-Holocaust context as apocalyptic fiction. Um, should get better at explaining it because I have to present it tonight! What was yours about? BRAVA for finishing it, by the way!!!
