Drop It Like It’s Hot
Hi beauties! Yesterday was one of the longest days ever! It didn’t seem that bad at all up until a certain point…
To start the day with some non-animal protein, I had a bowl of Kashi Go Lean, Kashi Go Lean Crunch, protein powder, almond milk and strawberries:
I headed to Magazine Feature Writing a little nervous, as I had not completed one of the readings. We had to get it from “reserves” and when I went to get it, the learning center was closed. It turned out that our prof told us someone stole it! I just wasn’t meant to have read it yet. I love how that worked out.
This class gets me giddy for the rest of the day. I’ve been dreaming of taking this class for years, and it’s exactly what I’ve wanted to learn. The prof runs our classes as though we are in an editorial meeting. We present our ideas and stories to everyone, and everyone critiques your work. We haven’t started to do this yet, but it will begin Monday.
The two hours flew by, and then I walked to the gym while eating a banana. Note: this is the first time I ate while walking yesterday– not the best way to enjoy food. The banana was just what I needed to get me through a workout, a walk home, a shower and a beauty session to make me pretty for all those other professors 😉
Lunch was veggieriffic and fantastic. I had a bomb salad:
Peppers are so watery and crunchy and amazing, but why are they so expensive? Just wondering. To accompany the salad, I had more veggies in the form of leftovers of MamaJ’s stew (still!):
Again, if anyone wants the recipe for the stew, it’s on Food & Wine’s website. MamaJ omitted all the oil, though. Oh, I definitely ate a few cinnamon-dusted chocolate-covered almonds after every meal except breakfast. They are the perfect ending!
My mini-break was over and it was time to head out for six hours of class followed by a one-hour practice. I had to pack “dinner” for the walks in-between classes. The easiest thing to pack, walk with and eat? Sammie, of course:
The sammie had friends, too:
I ate the Lara bar while walking from Graphics to English (5 p.m.). (P.B. Cookie has to be my favorite flavor!) I ate the sammie while walking to International Studies (7 p.m.), which is when the bad came in.
This class is awful. I thought it was going to be about European culture. Nope. It’s all about history, wars, government, maps…not my thing at all. Sheer torture for me. Normally, in the past, I would have stuck it out. However, this class is not a requirement for me. I’m at the point in my college career where if I don’t enjoy the class, and I don’t necessarily need it to graduate, then I’m not going to waste my money. I’ve never dropped a class before, but I’m droppin’ it like it’s hot.
I’ve already found another English class to take with the same professor I have from 5-7! She’s awesome. Now my schedules on Monday and Wednesday will be classes 9-11, 1-3, 3-5, 5-7. Still long, but I will be significantly happier.
The fourth time I ate while walking was after the hellish history class. Dem grapes got me juiced up for singing! I had Tempo Tantrums practice 9-10. For those of you that may be new (maybe? I have no clue), Tempo Tantrums is an a capella choir in which I sing. Love it!
I finally returned home at 10:30. MisterMan picked me up from the music building, and then we lay on my bed and talked about ab workouts, cankles, calf implants and the mole in-between my big toe and second toe on my left foot. After he left I had a late night snack of Kashi Go Lean and some Chocolate Monkey trail mix.
Today I have NO classes! However, I have to work at The Post (news room) and contact people for my story. I also have a ton of work to do before the weekend! Thankfully, I officially enjoy every single subject I’m studying 🙂
Have Thursdays as beautiful as you are! Much love.
Ciao for now,
P.S. I realized yesterday that SnackFace is two months old! Isn’t that crazy? Does that make it a toddler yet?
