What I Touched In A Day

Wednesday, Oct 9th

Hey, it's Hien, a Graphic Design student. Everyday in my life is pretty much the same - probably the most recognizable difference would be on my desktop screen or on my iPad. I jot down 12 of the things I have touched in a day to know more about my habit and maybe interest.

What I Touched In A Day

Guitar

In the late night when I was bored with homework, I grabbed the classic guitar next to my desk and played a bit. I just practiced several songs that I liked but they barely turned to listenable sounds. However, I enjoyed sitting next to the window and playing guitar. It was so relaxing.

Holed socks

When I came to the US for study, my mom packed me a dozen of sock pairs. A couple of them were fulfilled with holes because they have been worn out while I was either jogging or running. I was too lazy to separate them from the OK-er ones so I wore them to school.

Almond Milk

In the office where I work at, there is always a pack of almond milk in the fridge. My coworkers always bring food and drink to our dining area and invite others to come and enjoy. I poured myself a cupd of sweet almond milk and put it into the microwave for several minutes. I drank that while working near the computer.

Keys

Keys are important to me. Those are for locking my bike, my house, and my room since I share an apartment with others. I usually forgot them either in the office or in the work-out area. What a relief - I did not forget it elsewhere that day.

Ritz crackers

Crackers, especially Ritz's, are my favorite although they are a bit salty to me. Coworkers in my office stored even a box of crackers in the closet, which was near my table. Hmmm, I did want to lose weight but there were so attempting... so why not?

Earphones

I always listened to music or fun videos on YouTube so earphones are important to me so as to enjoy my privacy even in the working environment, in the school, or on my way riding back home. I was always clumsy and tightened the earphones by mistake so I don't know how long it would stay alive with me.

Chopsticks

I am an Asian but I don't use chopsticks for eating, even when I was at my country. I am always eating with bowls and spoons, which is much easier than chopsticks. However, I lived with other Asian and we always have dinner together. I collected chopsticks and other culinary items for them to eat with.

Instant water boiler

I was used to drinking tea since the sophomore year, especially green tea. Thus, after I woke up, I boiled about 2 cups of water and pour it into loose-leaf tea. Then I poured it to the jar and brought to school to drink throughout the rest of the day.

Cupcake container

On that morning, several of my classmates brought cupcakes to the class - they were probably leftovers from the bake sale of MTSU AIGA in the previous night. I was attempted to have one but I decided not to - I had enough sugar for my breakfast, so... It was so hard not to reach for beautifully decorated cupcakes.

Lunchbox

I always prepared my lunch ahead because whenever I went to school, I would need to be there until 5pm to be the soonest. I used the shallow Rubbermaid transparent one. I probably packed oatmeal with peanuts and veggies so that I can eat anytime after class or during work.

Tomato sauce jar

I reused glass jars which were used for tomato sauce or peanut butter. It would be for water, milk, or tea so that I could brought to school. I used to use plastic bottles but I always lost them - I have no ideas about this. I hope the heavy weight of those jars would remind me not to forget them.

Blanket

In my room back home, I sit near the window while studying. My desktop is placed there, also. Autumn is there already and it is getting cooler so I always surround myself with the cloud of blanket. Sometimes, I even covered my head with that blanket - it is just so weird.
