Today is the day of the Online Bake Sale for Haiti, make sure to get your bids in before it’s too late!
This morning started off with a lovely sleep in to 7:30, at which point I checked my phone and realized my carpool to school wasn’t aligning with my plans of going today. So what did I do? I stayed at home and took care of business. The way I see it, is if I get the work done, and am doing well on the assignments, then I don’t feel I need to be there ALL the time. When I am in class, I’m only half there anyways because I’m usually working on other assignments or floating on and off facebook living vicariously through my friends with far more interesting lives then the one I have.
I whipped up a smoothie (after polishing off half a pot of coffee- reading through lovely blog posts) that consisted of:
1/4C bluebs (frozen, plus 4 ice cubes)
1/4C soy milk, 1/4C water
1 scoop rice protein powder
I decided to have the other half banan with some AB on a corn thin. I was a little bored by this combo and couldn’t quite make up my mind on what I wanted to eat so ate it anyways; topping my smoothie with some bran buds for texture (I like to eat my smoothies– spoon to mouth thing with my meals) as I went along.
I then put in a good hour and a half of homework and research. Our term is kind of funny, I have 4 papers all due in the first week of March, so I’m trying to get them done in two week increments from now until then so I won’t have to stress and cry over it (yes cry) when the dates get close.
After the homework started to bore me a girlfriend popped over and we headed out of a PW (power walk) in the sunshine and managed to get some serious hills in that we both complained over. I was starving when I got home, and snacked on a red pepper. That did nothing, so I whipped up a quick salad of leftovers (deets in previous post) with a slice of rye bread (topped with figgy-goat cheese), and threw back some dried blueberries.
Just when I was getting settled into my homework again, my sister-in-law popped by. She had nothing going on at the time (apparently neither did I), so we decided to head out for a walk along the beach taking a very long route to the grocery store for the lucky winner of my bake sale item (right now it’s Hallie who’s blog is one year old today, celebrating with treats- go girl- photos of me licking the spoon and mixing are coming up this weekend, ha!). I came home, whipped up a pot of tea and then got back to work and made a huge dent in the work that I have due next week- and this paper I’m working on.
I have to tell you, I don’t really mind writing papers at all. Maybe you’re not surprised by this fact, since I have a blog and appear to be writing on it at least once a day. I’m was always one of those kids who could dive head first into an art project, never placing things in order just going nuts with the blank page. That’s how I feel about paper writing. I write and write, then edit and have friends edit. I enjoy the creativity process that goes into writing big papers (especially when we have lot’s of freedom to choose the subject).
How do you feel about writing? I was never a journal writer before blogging unless in stressful emotional times of my life, do you keep a journal? Or did you before you started blogging?
