This was my fourth and final HuskyTHON and to celebrate, I logged my thoughts for 18 hours. WOO YEAH #FTK!

5:45   Everyone is here; let’s go let’s start!


6:24   Go kids, go! You’re so cute and so great.

6:50   I am so thankful for this baguette I brought.

7:00   How has it already been an hour? This will be so easy.

7:56   We’re basically 1/9 of the way through… that’s more than 10%.  This will be over in no time.

8:13   There are 16 more hours… I don’t think it will be over in no time.

8:20   It’s finally my turn to get food! I don’t think pasta has ever tasted so good.

8:46   I’m going to the bathroom after the next morale dance.

9:11   Bathroom break!

9:17   I think I have to go to the bathroom again.

9:46   I feel like I could dance ALL NIGHT.

10:15   Holy sh*t I can’t believe Taylor Swift donated to HuskyTHON!

11:17   Not gonna lie, I’m kinda jealous of the people getting hypnotized because they’re sitting right now. 

11:53   Maybe if I put on my Sperry’s my feet will hurt less?

12:24   I can definitely last 12 more hours.

12:41   I did the math and it is time to drink my first Vanilla Starbucks Frappuccino.

12:50   I think my Sperry’s are making my feet hurt more.

12:57   How much caffeine is in a Vanilla Starbucks Frappuccino? Because I FEEL WIRED.

1:20   I hate Zumba hour.  How do people do this for fun?

2:15   Is this my 6th bathroom trip? I don’t even remember.

2:41   I am officially zoning out now.

2:50   Could time be moving any more slowly?  I think not.

2:58   Has it been 6 hrs since my last Advil? Can I have more or no?



4:33   Okay, my feet really hurt.

4:48   Maybe if I tell myself I have energy I will actually have energy. 

5:37   How do the girls have three bathrooms and a half hour line and the boys have one bathroom and NO LINE EVER?

5:51   I’m fading fast.

6:37   I think I have energy! (Is this because I told myself I do or is it because I actually do?)

7:49   They are serving eggs!

7:58   *Disappointed by eggs*

8:28   I don’t remember what it’s like to have feeling in my feet.

8:33   Seriously, what is the deal with the bathroom line? This is SEXIST.

9:38   Let’s go on the stage.  This was a great idea. 

9:40   Drumline is coming, I must get off the stage.

10:47   My feet are killing me. 

11:18   I can definitely make it, less than an hour to go.

11:27   They play these songs because they want us to cry.

11:33   This is my last HuskyTHON… like actually, I might cry.

11:44   I love these kids so much.  I don’t even know them and I love them.

11:58   $716,394.58 for the kids this is so amazing.

12:01   I could really use a shower and a nap but I don’t want to leave. PEOPLE COME BACK.
