Andrew Basile’s Sunday Routine

Wilton native Andrew Basile has been attending Brunswick since freshman year. Although the senior has a lot on his plate as a football player, peer leader, and student, he finds time to make music and hang out with his friends.

Basile starts his Sunday morning off with a bowl of Special K Red berries. He admits, “it is deceivingly delicious. It sounds healthy, but it is so good.” After enjoying a bowl of crunchy pleasure with milk, Basile heads off to SAT prep (like many other juniors and seniors this time of year). After Screen Shot 2014-10-16 at 4.02.28 PMcoming home from SAT, he admits to procrastinating.

“I procrastinate on some homework. I do the really concrete stuff first, like if I have math problems, I will do those first. If I have studying, I’ll save that for the end.”

After getting some work done, Basile hits a popular Mexican joint in his town called Qdoba. “I go to Qdoba with friends from Wilton because it is closer to my house and cheaper than Chipotle.”

“Now that it is football season [after lunch] I’ll want to relax, sit in my room and do some music,” Basile says. “I’ll put a song on loop and just try and make it sound good.” When I ask about Sunday night dinner, he has three words: “Basile. Family. Dinner.” Basile raves about his mom’s cooking and the opportunity just to sit down for a meal with whomever is around. “It is looking like a four person table… I have two older brothers, one just graduated from college so he is back at home.”

“It is kind of a bummer when it isn’t all of us,” he adds.

Basile enjoys the food as well as the company. “My mom makes some big meal that will fill me up for the week, so that’s good.”

After a day full of good food, music and SAT prep, Basile admits to procrastinating a bit more before buckling down from around eight o’clock to ten o’clock to work.

“Then I’ll go to sleep because I don’t get enough during the week.”

When I asked him if he had any last thoughts he replied, “I never thought about my Sunday routine, I didn’t realize I had one. I guess this is a typical Sunday for me.”
