Sophia does Live Below the Line

Good luck to everyone doing Live Below the Line!

I will not be doing it this year, as I have a lot of major assignments due within the next few weeks and also due to health reasons.

But nonetheless, good luck!

Energy wise? Today has been shit.

I’m grumpy, I’m impatient, I just want the bloody week to end, so I can decent food and coffee. I’m dead-tired.

I’m bad tempered, I just want to sleep. I want to give up. I want to throw in the towel, quit, resign, throw a social media temper and videotape myself throwing in the towel. Okay maybe not the throwing a social media temper.

But, no, I made a promise, and I will keep going. I will make it to the end. Why? Because 1.4 million people don’t have the luxury of saying “I don’t want to do it anymore, so I won’t.”

I’m not doing any homework, study. I’m going to get a video and I’m going to relax tonight and the next few nights.

Due to efficient filming, we managed to finish two before expected, so I could eat without suffering from hunger pains in the last hour or so of filming. But, then again, a couple of team members from a comms assignment were eating wedges with sour cream and sweet chili sauce during a break. Today is going to get tough.
Day 2/Day 27

1 x potato = 0.22
1 x carrot = 0.05
100g sweet corn = 0.20

All up for $0.47.

Due to workload today (I’m filming from 10am - 3pm) I won’t be able to eat lunch until after or around 3pm. Thus after the bowl of porridge in the picture, I decided to make another bowl of porridge to keep me going. I had room in my daily budget to do so.
