(Shout out to the BSB?)
It’s that time again…Back to the classes.
I just finished up my second day of third year and have experienced all of my classes at least once. They all seem pretty decent and I like my schedule so things are looking good so far!
My earliest day is Wednesday at 8:30 but that’s only every two weeks, otherwise it starts at 10:30. Tuesdays and Thursdays start at 1:00. All of my days are over by earliest 12:30, latest 4. I have no days off but Fridays are only one 50 minute class so I can’t complain.
I haven’t picked up any of my textbooks yet though… terrible, I know. I was trying to search for some used bargains online but not a whole lotta luck on that front. It looks like I’ll be buying most full price… blah. I went to the bookstore today and there was a line all the way down the hall… I decided I’d try again tomorrow haha.
My classes this fall term:
– Physical Geography (A first year course. Didn’t quite cover all of my requirements in first year when I didn’t yet know what I wanted to major in)
– Intro to Clinical Psychology
– Communications – Image, Sound and Text
– Applied Social Psychology
– Developmental Psychology I
I have to say, I’m glad to be back. Glad to have a reason to get out of the house everyday, glad to be in an environment where there are people everywhere rather than being cooped up alone in my house with nothing to do. Glad to bring back some kind of structure, routine and purpose. And frankly just glad to have some change. I enjoy the freedom of summer… but it gets old pretty fast. Welcome back school! (My enthusiasm will most likely be significantly less by next week)
On the topic of FOOD.
My eats the past few days have been a lot more snack focused and a lot less meal focused. Wait, that’s been my entire summer. But that being said, I haven’t had a significant turn around in the way I eat these past few days. I’ve been on the nosh. Because of that I don’t have good photographic evidence of all my eats, so here’s a random schmattering.
Today I have evidence of most of my eats. Score!
Breakfast was some chilly oats in a mug mixed with apple, banana, yogurt…and other stuff I can’t remember. Oh yeah, there was some PB2 in there!
And handfuls of this crap. Please don’t buy it. It’s awful. And terribly addicting. It’s my bro’s cereal of choice so it frequents our pantry shelves. Where are you willpower?!
I forgot the giant iced coffee I chugged too.
I tried to do a treadmill run while watching the last episode of disc 4 of season 1 of Gossip Girls. It was a terrible effort. For some reason my body wasn’t having it. I think it was the combo of some leftover weekend sleep deprivation combined with the earliest workout I’ve done in a while (it was before noon, not my style this summer). I still managed to crack out 35 minutes of running/high incline speed walking plus another 15ish minutes of weights/lunge/squat moves. It wasn’t a fun one though.
I showered and at an early lunch plate of sorts before heading to school.
This plate mess: wee bites of leftover savoury oats, leftover rice stir fry, tempeh, snap peas, red pepper, baby carrots, dijonnaise for dipping and a hunk of cold corn cob.
Class class class. Timmys coffee and an apple kept me fuelled.
Home home home. I was ready for dinner by hardly 5 oclock.
After some serious bread and carrot dipping, I made another snacky plate-like dinner. Steamed broccoli with marinara, a blob of mashed cauliflower, a mini chicken spinach sandwich on rye and a hunk of fresh pure white bread loaf.
Then it was time for a forever fav yogurt mess bowl (after eating handfuls of honey puffed cereal. I hate cereal, can you tell?) with plain and strawberry yogurt, banana, and a hunk of crumbled zucchini muffin + crumbled pb cookie.
I was full as full can be but when my brother came home and cooked up a frozen pizza for himself I had to have a sliver (or two) because, well, we haven’t had frozen pizza forever! Or any kind of pizza for that matter. And it used to be my favourite food. It’s been a while Pizza, it’s been a while!
Other special weekend eats included:
Chicken mixed with marinara and buffalo sauce over steamed spinach.
Scrambled egg whites with all the fixins.
Cereal. DO NOT LIKE. (Ehem.. lies)
Snack plate with all the good stuff (tuna, hummus, raw cauli, tempeh, red pepper, tomato, mushroom…mmmm)
Plain yogurt, crumbled zucchini muffin, almond butter… practically overflowing with good taste!
Whole wheat spaghetti with marinara, garlic bun, beans, salmon cooked BBQ style. Best.
The most dangerous dessert ever… peach crumb pudding. I practically had to beg my mother not to make this. It clearly didn’t work. I can’t have this in the house. Literally CANNOT. I could literally eat it all. In one sitting. My stomach would probably murder me shortly after but it takes every ounce of restraint in me not to eat this until I pass out from sugar coma.
I ate a bunch of other stuff that was just ugly. Or that I was just too lazy to plate. :)
Alright. It’s hardly 10 at night but I think I’m just about ready to drift off. Gotta get up earlyish for class tomorrow anyway.
