Once again, this was an incredibly eventful week, from having coke spilled on me to getting TWO care packages from my family (I know Mom did all the work, so THANK YOU MOM<3)
Granola & strawberries took over most of my breakfasts, but after getting a sore throat, I've been eating oatmeal instead.
I may have finished the jar....
Gummy bears from my RA since it's my birthday month, and a new mug that I got for $3.49 at the bookstore's labor day sale --- YESS
The cashier asked me if I was getting the mug for my best friend.....I thought that the "BFFs" part was only in reference to the cute milk and cookie cartoon :/
Farmers' Market haul
more amazon orders --- KIND bars are much more affordable on amazon, and I figured this would be a better alternative to the cliff bars that I've been packing as snacks
Care package #1 from Mom (and the rest of the family). It was a HUGE surprise, and it definitely made the whole "getting coke spilled on me" incident disappear that day. This momma knows her peanut butter addict, and got both freshly ground peanut butter and almond butter....just when I thought I had finished the jar and would be able to overcome my addiction ;)
But in all honesty, I've been good about it --- I really have!
Then on Friday, after three days of being sick, my mom texts me and says the 2nd care package arrived.
MOM, PLEASE STOP SPOILING MEEE!!!!(but thank you so much!)
oh, and this morning, I opened the box of mama chia squeezes, and there's actually more stuff in there --- WEGMAN'S PEANUT BUTTER (2 jars --- this is the GOOD stuff), 2 Vega energy drink packages, a travel sized container of cacao nibs, a coconut energy bar...). Thank you thank you, Mom <3 <3 Please don't send me more, because I will definitely gain that freshman 15!!
My Friday night was full of online window shopping, buzzfeed food quizzes, and youtube videos. (Don't worry, I did a decent amount of homework that day too)
That day, I was reminded of how grateful I am for one of my professors. I'm taking this one class that has absolutely nothing to do with any of my academic interests, but it has seriously become my favorite class --- because of my professor and because it provokes so much higher order thinking and fosters intellectual discussions. Seriously the best class that I'm taking.
One of the bad things about the dining hall here, is that a) there's really only one dining hall, and b) it opens from 10 am - 8 pm on the weekends. I TOTALLY understand that the employees need to take a break (they definitely deserve it), but then there's no breakfast for the early birds (or I guess the more accurate term for me is "morning dove" --- learned that form a BuzzFeed quiz :P)
so this morning, after trying a restless sleep (trying to go to bed at 10:30 in a college dorm ---on a friday night --- where walls are paper thin, is not easy), I ate a wonderful breakfast consisting of a banana that I got from the dining hall the day before, a farmer's market energy bar, and a packet of Mama Chia :) And it was wonderful.
After an eventful day of trying to balance work, tutoring, photography training, and blowing my nose 500000 times, my friends and I went to a a food truck park, which is supposedly named "one of the best".
it's really not.
I did enjoy getting off campus, but it really wasn't worth the 1 hour round trip and overpriced mediocre food, especially with my state of health. I did really enjoy spending time with my friends and reminding myself that life exists outside of our little bubble of a campus, but if you know about this food truck park --- I don't recommend going (at least not on a night like tonight).
here's to a rollercoaster of a week --- let's see what next week brings.
