My Day

Submitted by rhallice on Fri, 09/15/2017 - 15:15


I spend a rather good chunk of my day driving between where I live, where I coach, and where I go to school. I dedicate around 3 hours every day driving myself from my home in Shrewsbury MA, to Holy Cross in Worcester MA, and then to UMass all the way out in Amherst MA. I coach Men’s and Women’s Hockey at the College of the Holy Cross and a full time student at UMass. I drive a Nissan Altima that I recently got new tires and an oil change for. I plug in my IPhone to my Aux and listen to mostly Country and classic Rock while I drive. I take the Mass Pike every day as it’s the major highway between my locations.


Start the mornings off with a cold bottle of water with a green tea teabag and a lemon slice in it. I grab a piece of fruit usually an apple or a pair and I usually add eggs and any meat available in my fridge which is usually my chicken. This morning I had a Granny Smith apple with grilled chicken and eggs. I grab extra waters and granola bars for my drives between home, work and, school. This morning after work on the way to school I stopped at Dunkin Donuts and got an Iced Coffee.

Assignment 1

Today I obserevd a small fragile maggot looking creature in a small plastic cup. The tiny twelve segemnted creature measued around 25 mm in length from head to tail. Almost like an accordian the small creature contracted and stretched it's body when moving. On it's bottom side it had small ampendagies that differed in size and mobility. The creature was able to lift it's head off the cup and hold it up for considerable amounts of time as it tried desperately to escape and climb up the slippery walls of the cup.The head seemed to have a much more rigid exoskeleton than as opposed to the rest of the body. Two large eyes cover a majority of the creature's face and looked almost like large red balls that seem to give the animal a wide view of it's surroundings. The small maggot was very active within the small cup trying to build any sort of momentum to force itself out of the cup.
