It is hotter than hell outside today (aka over 90 degrees), so I’m keeping my heat-intolerant self inside at all costs. I don’t have an air conditioner so yesterday I closed all the blinds in my apartment to keep the sun out, which seems to have kept my apartment from turning into a sauna.
While everyone else is outside at the beach, frying eggs on sidewalks, or turning themselves the color of a lobster, I am slowly working my way through this paper (one page down, nine to go!), chasing down an obscene number of spiders in my apartment and putting them to death one by one, and making random food recipes using whatever is in my pantry so that I can avoid grocery shopping and bringing back a bunch of food when I move out in 10 days (thus far I’ve made oatmeal pancakes, a black bean/red bean quinoa stir fry, and later tonight will be chickpea pasta salad). If I can get at least eight pages of this paper done by tonight, I’ll reward myself with an at-home mani/pedi and movie night. And let’s be real, I’ll do that regardless of whether my paper is near completion. I also need to bust out
some a lot of choreography for an audition next week.
Thank goodness for three day weekends!
