“My alarm went off at 7:35 AM. I always set it ten minutes before I actually have to be up. I’ve found that ten minutes is the perfect amount of time to pretend the real world doesn’t exist before deciding I’m ready to face it.
I plopped my feet on the floor and padded downstairs for breakfast. As my pasta breakfast cooked—I love the leftovers-as-breakfast lifestyle—I assembled my lunch. Yogurt, ants on a log, apple, one Babybel cheese, and crackers with kale & spinach dip all went into my purple lunchbox. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a weird eater. Lunch foods for breakfast, snacks for lunch. Whatever. Meals are all relative anyway.”
