Freshly Washed Sheets

Good Thursday morning!

I was up and at ’em before 8 am this morning, as I had to finish up some laundry and pack for the upcoming weekend: NATIONALS! Later this afternoon after a light hit, we will be piling on the bus for a nice 5 hour drive up to Boston to compete in the Howe Cup (the intercollegiate squash championships). We are currently ranked 4th, and have a tough first round match against Yale, which, if we win, would likely put us in the semis against Harvard.

Although I went to well after midnight, I woke up feeling rather rested this morning, thanks to one thing:ย fresh sheets!ย 

IMG_4870I had to do laundry last night, which meant it was the perfect excuse to wash my sheets and remake my bed. Usually, I’ll put this off because of laziness and tiredness, but I need to make a mental note to remember just how comfortable it is to sleep in a clean, nicely made bed!


Last blog post I mentioned how I had been really slacking in the food-pics department, so I am pleased to say that today I have several foodie pics for you- all from my breakfast this morning!

Part one of breakfast occurred in my room while packing, withย a Banana Nut Quest Bar (post to come on these soon- I’m in love). I ordered a box of 12 off of Amazon (gotta love Amazon Prime for college students!), and have slowly been making my way through them, enjoying every single flavour so far.

IMG_6182Part two of breakfast took place at my eating club, where I had two poached eggs, half a grapefruit, and a pomegranate Chobani Greek yogurt, topped with some raspberries.

Now I’ve got to get a little bit of work done before heading off to Comparative Physiology at 11, followed by a quick lunch, and then a meeting to get help with my Thesis stats! Only one more class til the weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚


Do you notice a difference in your sleep quality when you change your sheets?ย 

Do you put off changing your sheets like I do, or do you look forward to changing them?ย

    I definitely feel the difference with clean sheets!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I dread changing them but I can’t stand thinking I am sleeping in “dirty” sheets. I usually change them once a week and that day I generally sleep like a baby.
    Take those Yale dudes down!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I know what you mean about sleeping in “dirty sheets”, but sometimes when I get back to my room I am just too tired! ๐Ÿ™
      And thank you, gonna try!!

    Fresh sheets is such a simple pleasure. My Mom would always change ours right before we went on vacation so that we’d come back to our clean & cozy beds!

    Ahh Yale makes me think of Gilmore Girls, haha. Good luck at Nationals!

      Ah, moms are the best! My mom always makes sure when I come home from break that my sheets are freshly washed ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s nothing like getting home after a long day of travelling and climbing into a nice clean bed.
      Haha yes! Gilmore Girls is such a good show…
