Well, I got up at three something in the morning. Ah, fun. I did some reading and work until around 7 a.m. I didn’t have any groceries yet, so I just went to the Starbucks, and got a coffee and porridge, which reminded me of a creamier oatmeal.
I read the first chapter in The Happiness Project, which Jen just started following. I definitely resonated with it, right down to her vows to stop twisting her hair, wearing running shoes all the time, and eating the same foods day in and day out. And, namely, her first goal for the year was to sleep more!
We had an orientation session in the morning, then the students went on the Big Bus Tour for the rest of the day, while I had a few more meetings.
Around 2 p.m., I crashed and decided to take a nap. It lasted five hours.
I woke up around dinner time and went to the Sainsbury grocery store across the street for some groceries. It’s HUGE!
A few of us cooked dinner together. Pasta, green beans, chicken caesar salads, and bread.
Then, we were going to bake a cake for a student’s birthday, but we don’t have any cake pans. Alas, a beautiful store-bought chocolate birthday cake!
Two days in a row that ended with chocolate cake. Not bad.
