Ice Cube (April 2 2015)[i]

Waking up at noon o'clock.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maca Powder, Maple Syrup, Chia Seeds, Strawberries, and Almond Milk. Coffee with Cream and Honey.

Getting household supplies from Target and groceries from Trader Joe's.

Meeting with the financial advisor at Chartway to officially open my Roth IRA account – gonna start saving for retirement now and at the same time investing.

Grilled PB&J. Lentil Potato Curls. Pu-erh Tea.

Teaching at Music Makers.

At the Great Neck Rec for adult basketball. It's only four teams tonight, which means non-stop games. I do well with my posse – a lot of teamwork and wins.

Honey Crisp Apple.

Back home. Dinner with Ana: serving up the Black Beans that have been slow cooking throughout the day along with Brown Jasmine Rice, Kale, and Carrots. Everything about this meal feels nutritious and wholesome.

Ana makes Chocolate Chip Cookies using whole-wheat flour and almond meal.

Rehearsing songs on the piano and guitar with Ana. The list of songs we sing together gets bigger and bigger every day. I feel bad for Ana cause she's suddenly come down with a runny nose – seriously, it's like a drainpipe just turned on. I equip her with a roll of toilet paper – she endlessly blows and blows while simultaneously singing her heart out.

Snot Rags (April 2 2015)

Later on talking in her hot bedroom. She keeps that personal heater on even when it's not that cold outside – she's designed for tropical settings. She's unusually chatty for a late night, probably from the strong two cups of coffee she had before the gym.

Me: "You're so precious to me, you know that?"

Sleep 4 a.m.
