Week of 3/31-4/6

Greetings, Internet! I hope everyone is staying as safe and sane as can be. This week, I attended another conference (I didn’t have to present), watched “Muppet Treasure Island” for the first time in about two decades, and went to that fancy Starbucks Reserve location. Daily summaries below!

March 31, 2023

  • Early morning wake up for another conference!
  • Thank goodness I’m not speaking at this one.
  • Dang, they have croissants? I love croissants.
  • <seven hours later>
  • Okay, now for the bus! I was planning to like, take the bus to a fancy shopping area and window shop, but I didn’t eat enough at the conference, and I just want to go home and eat dinner.
  • Mmm…dinner.
  • And drag race! Yes, Anetra’s in the finals!
  • Wordle: In five!
  • Currently feeling: So tired. My sleep schedule is all sorts of weird now.
  • Currently looping: My Spotify Top Songs of 2022, which I downloaded for bus rides.

  • Happy April Fools’ Day! Even though I don’t participate.
  • Although I overslept, so maybe my body is just playing a joke on me today. Who knows?
  • Did the FES cycle.
  • My boyfriend’s here! He brought food.
  • <om nom nom>
  • Movie time! “Muppet Treasure Island” is an underrated classic.
  • Wordle: Whoops.
  • Currently feeling: I love the Muppets and the joy they bring to all who watch. Side note: Hans Zimmer did the score for “Muppet Treasure Island.” Hans. Zimmer. What?
  • Currently looping: NEW AD INFINITUM!!! “Chapter III: Downfall

April 2, 2023

  • Lazy Sunday!
  • Let’s go Mets!
  • My boyfriend and I went to the Starbucks Reserve Roastery. It’s basically a fancy Starbucks, but dang, they make a good hazelnut milk drink thing.
  • I know, so descriptive.
  • Dang, LSU earned that.
  • My boyfriend and I are really into Food Network’s “Tournament of Champions.” Like, it’s riveting. Also, these chefs are so ridiculously talented.
  • Currently feeling: My boyfriend made dinner so I could get in an hour in my standing frame. Seriously, what am I bringing to this relationship?
  • Currently looping: The sounds of Starbucks chatter?

April 3, 2023

  • So many phone calls.
  • And emails.
  • Dangit, I’m getting myself a matcha latte. Because that’s what I do when stressed.
  • Mmm…matcha latte.
  • My mother’s here! She brought blueberry lemon bread. And she made me and my boyfriend dinner, which was super sweet of her.
  • Worked out with an SCI trainer!
  • Did laundry. Very exciting stuff.
  • Brief phone call with a friend that was the opposite of stressful, so yay.
  • Currently feeling: Phone calls and emails are exhausting. As are workouts.
  • Currently looping: No music today, just phone calls.

April 4, 2023

  • Went to Push to Walk! Thankfully, the traffic in lower Manhattan (you know, because of the former president being indicted) did not affect us. Also, it was super nice outside, so we broke out the handcycle.
  • And now I’m exhausted.
  • Therapy!
  • Currently feeling: I look forward to getting things done tomorrow that I couldn’t get done today. Because there was a lot I couldn’t get done today, and it’s really effing frustrating.
  • Currently looping: Ad Infinitum’s “Seth.”

April 5, 2023

  • Admin day!
  • Phone calls, emails, more phone calls, realizing I should do follow-up emails, ALL OF THE ETCETERA.
  • New wheels and tires arrived for the new chair! Huzzah! [They’re the featured photo!]
  • Ordered a birthday gift for a friend, which took like, way too long because I couldn’t figure out what to send her.
  • Emailed someone hoping that they’ll agree to be my second dissertation reader (probably should’ve done this a while ago, but this is still a decent amount of time to give them to decide).
  • Oh man, I still have so many things on the to-do list. Where did the day go?
  • Wordle: In four!
  • Currently feeling: I got so much done today, so at least there’s that!
  • Currently looping: I’ve got the Spotify DJ going, and it’s giving me all of my pop punk mid-00s awesomeness. So yay!

April 6, 2023

  • Did the FES cycle.
  • Started RPDR season six, and so far, it’s delightful.
  • Got groceries delivered, because I don’t have time to run to the grocery store this week.
  • Got dinner with a friend I haven’t seen in a couple of months! We managed to go outside and beat the oncoming storm, so huzzah!
  • Wordle: In three!
  • Currently feeling: Kind of tired and not totally sure why?
  • Currently looping: That Spotify DJ is really taking over.

Thanks so much for reading! Stay safe, stay sane, and have you tried the Spotify DJ?
