As for about 6:00 today, I finally finished all of my midterms. Done, adios, sayonara. I hardly even know what to do with myself now that I don’t have piles of notes to highlight and textbook chapters to read.
Oh wait. I should probably get started on that research proposal paper and visual analysis project that are due in the next few weeks…School sure knows how to keep you on your toes.
But not tonight. Tonight I shall:
Paint my toenails
Catch up on Jersey Shore
Go to bed before midnight
The small luxuries that I haven’t been able to enjoy since reading week ended.
I should probably stretch too, since I’ve been sitting/idle for about 90% of the past two weeks. Bump on a log represent.
Not gonna lie, I don’t have a ton to say or anything exceptionally special to show since I’ve literally just been studying for days.
A sampling of my eating on a midterm day – Today I ate:
Spinach tuna wraps with an orange for BREAKFAST. Why not right…
Tuna was mixed with a little light mayo, a little light sour cream, a little dijon mustard.
This was after a small bowl of Vector cereal.
Yeah lunch definitely came early after that “meal”.
So what was LUNCH?
A small piece of toast topped with hummus and tabbouli
A bowl of unsweetened applesauce, cottage cheese, Multigrain Cheerios, a few soaked cashews and a blob of peanut butter dessert hummus.
And several bites of this rendition of Carrie’s Chocolate Tofu Brownies. Rendition meaning I halved it, arbitrarily measured ingredients, didn’t add quite enough sugar and didn’t cook it quite long enough. I’m pretty sure I could have devoured the whole thing pre-baking though. This dough was basically pudding. Mmm.
I also had a big, crunchy apple at some point.
Oh and a
spoonful fingerful of peanut butter probably after every single “meal” and snack throughout the day. I’ve been doing this a lot lately… no wonder I feel cushy, that’s a lot of peanut butter!
After writing my midterm I came home to the smell of chili. I’ve never been a huge chili fan but despite this fact I couldn’t keep the spoon out of the pot. Eventually I scooped it onto some steamed broccoli and spinach and topped it with Frank’s. Ballin.
And then I was back to the peanut butter. After a mini bowl of yogurt, muffin and more dessert hummus. Among other things.
I feel like I need expandable pants. Sweatpants time.
I’m pretty excited not to have to be completely glued to my chair anymore now that midterms are done. I’ve been getting pretty antsy. My legs hate me! So does my body in general. Stress just does a number on the body, doesn’t it. I have the worst cold I’ve had all winter. Hence the extra need to get to bed before midnight (as mentioned atop in my small luxuries list).
But first, I have a date with the Jersey Shore crew.
