8:30 am Get out of bed.
8:38 am After figuring out whether to wear jeans or shorts (got to love Iowa fall), I am ready to leave my room.
8:42 am Enter the dining hall, grumble something that sounds close to "good morning" to Connie (the lovely woman who sits at the Information Desk), get my yogurt (yay it's cherry vanilla!) and my Frosted Flakes and go to sit at a table by the window.
8:55 am I realize that I still have calculus homework to do ... luckily class isn't until 10.

9:50 am Off to calculus with Professor Wolf.

8:00 pm Finished with phoneathon, got $10,550 in gifts (a personal best). Also, I had the privilege of talking to some very interesting alumni, including a man who started his own realty development firm in DC and now owns part of Grinnell (the town) as a pet project. I was also able to talk to a woman who is an anthropology professor at Lehigh University.
