She Got Her Own
Hello gorgeous lovepies! Wednesday was a whirlwind day full of classes, rain, catching up with Muffin and sangin’ my heart out…to get my own solo! More on that later…
Wednesday morning I awoke bright and early, minus the bright. The sunshine in my morning, though, was a creamycold concoction, overnight oats:
Made love all night:
-1/3 C rolled oats
-1/3 C fat free plain yogurt
-1/6 C (?) water
Hooked up with in the morning:
All in one bowl, having a bangin’ time:
I smiled my way through the bowl, got dressed and ready for the day, and then I skidaddled out of my abode to magazine feature writing. On my way there a friendly gentleman handed me a packet, reminding me to “Help end violence” against animals. I’m tryin, dude! I just have a dairy problem.
I should have upped the oats to 1/2 C, because by the time 11 a.m. rolled around, Mama needed food. Now, I know yesterday was Raw Wednesday, and I wish I could fully jump on that band wagon, but I messed up my salad with hummus and dressings. Poop. What wasn’t poop, however, was this gorgeous salad:
I planned this salad during class, actually. Bad Kailey. I tried to arrange everything in rings. From the inside out:
-dollop Roasted Red Pepper Sabra hummus (not raw)
-sprinkle of roasted almond slivers (not raw)
-corn and edamame mix (not raw, but cold)
-cherry toms (raw!)
-apple celery salad (raw!)
-under it all: baby romaine and baby spinach
-over it all: dressing of balsamic vin, maple syrup and mustard
No guilt about the non-rawness because look how colorful it is:
Sometimes I am amazed at the colors nature creates. However lovely that salad may have been, I needed a little more afterward so I could focus on an upcoming midterm and not be distracted throughout. I finished this wee baby apple:
And because that lasted three bites, I had this phallic-looking carrot with Naturally More:
Finally content, I packed my snacks to help me last from 1 to 7 p.m. Oh no. Is that what he said?
First up in the afternoon, I had a midterm. It was for English 309 and we had 5 essays from which to choose. I selected the grad-student-level question, where I had to examine and explicate the first page of a novella we had to read. Because I’d read it twice, I chose Chopin’s The Awakening and examined every single word on that first page. This is so nerdy, but I discovered things within the first page that got me so excited to write my exam. That Chopin knew what she was doing. I wrote for the entire 2 hours.
I had Info Graphics after that, and we turned in our projects and started to play with InDesign! Yes! That is exactly what I need to learn for magazine. Following Info Graphics was English 306, and we discussed resumes and cover letters, my fave! Not.
It was monsooning by the time I finished classes, and thankfully, a sweet girl drove me home. I love random kindness. Oh, she’s in my class, so it’s not like I selected a random stranger to take me home. Though I may do that sometime…
When I returned home I found that my roomie made Raisin Bran Bread! YES! I immediately ate a warm, gooey piece of baked love. I look at this baked good as A) grains, B) fiber and C) fruit. Well-rounded in my book. I was tempted to eat the rest of the loaf, which was a sign that it was dinner time. What did I crave?
Pasta sauce-soaked veggies and a chick’n patty:
A handful of grapes were eaten after this to cleanse the palette.
I had a capella practice 8:30- 10. For anyone who is curious, we are on Facebook and YouTube. Just search “Tempo Tantrums.” Anyway, we had auditions for a song I really wanted to sing. It was a close vote, but I got the main solo in… BARBIE GIRL! Bahaha! How awesome is that? We are singing a “Pop Girl Medley” that features several of our fave ’90s songs, and Barbie Girl is one of them. I couldn’t pass up that opportunity. When we perform it, I’ll be sure to share the video!
I met up with Muffin after this, and we went to a bar to chat. No drinks were had, but we got to do some mayjuh catching up. At 11:30 I started to feel my eyes droop and headed home. I was pretty hungry by this time and delved into a snackadoo:
Yes, I ate on my bed. I know my girl K pointed this out, but these pretzel sticks are the longest I’ve eaten:
I apologize for the sexual undertones of this post. I’m not sure how that happened.
Today I’ve already worked out and eaten breakfast, which I shall share tomorrow. The rest of the day’s agenda includes researching for a piece I’m writing, organizing group projects and meeting up with Muffin for a night out. Hollaaa. Alright, I’m off to go play journalist for the afternoon!
Ciao for now,
