On the Fritz
What up, party people! Wednesday has been both trying and relaxing.
Awaking to sunshine, I was thrilled that I slept somewhat soundly for almost seven hours. That’s big for me. I immediately went to the john, changed into gym gear, ate half a banana with peanut butter and galloped 20 minutes to the gym. While walking, I thought it would be delightful to take pictures of the gorgeous sunshine. And then I noticed the pictures were coming out white with horizontal stripes across them.
Ignoring this momentarily, I ellipticalled for 50 minutes with weights and read Glamour. Cindi Leive and Arianna Huffington are pledging to get at least seven hours of sleep each night. If top editors are doing this, I should seriously consider working on my sleep. After that enlightenment, I did abs and arms for about 20 minutes and called it intense.
On my way home, I stopped in a bookstore to purchase a new memory card. I thought this would alleviate the problem, but as you can see in my brunch photos, something was still funky:
For brunch (eaten at 12:40pm), I had a smoothie of 1/2 naner, 2 mitfulls spinach, 1/2 C almond milk, 1/2 C water, 1/4 C frozen bloobs and 1 scoop protein powder. Alongside, I had a bagel with Janetha’s fave combo (cottage cheese and strawberry jelly) on one half and Sabra on the other:
I had to meet up with a partner for a Magazine Editing project, so I packed snacks for the two hours I had to be in the library (AKA my least favorite place on campus). Prepare yourself:
Because my camera was/is on the fritz, I was also on the fritz all day. I was a few minutes late to meet my partner (I despise lateness). I poked myself in the face with my own pen during Media Law. I freaked myself out thinking I have a Media Law midterm on Monday when it’s actually on Wednesday EVEN THOUGH I had it written in my planner correctly the whole time. I needed a Diet Coke.
So I sipped one as I made dinner/my second meal of the day. Someone asked me a couple days ago how I feel about diet sodas. I don’t buy cases of them often, but I love them. I know they’re supposedly bad for you, but if my worst vices are sugar-free gum and a diet soda a day, life ain’t bad. At least I’m not a tanning bed-addict and smoker. Ya dig?
Dinner/second meal was pretty delish, but you wouldn’t be able to tell from the horrid photo:
As I read my peers’ essays post-dinner, I snacked on pretzels with hummus, an apple and these ridiculous babies:
Sun Flour Baking Company has not let me down. I am falling in love with all its gluten-free, vegan baked goods. The brownies are densely chewy and uber chocolatey. That makes for a very happy SnackFace.
I worked on more h-dub, including writing a magazine prototype proposal. My idea for a magazine? A food mag for young women that also features fashion and pop culture. There are none! Basically, it’s called SnackFace. Wouldn’t that be amazing? SnackFace: The Mag. It would do nothing but promote living and loving your life, eating deliciously and dressing fiercely. What a dream!
While editing my proposal, I enjoyed two new favorites:
Unsweetened dried mango is beyond. It’s so chewy, sweet and sometimes tart. And the Camelbak! Why has it taken me so long to buy one? I have an irrational fear of knocking out my front teeth, so my aluminum wannabe Sigg didn’t make me want to drink water. The Camelbak, however, has a lovely rubbery mouthpiece that isn’t far off from a nipple on a baby bottle. I’ve had 48oz of water today, which is about 48oz more than I normally drink. Guess the nip’s the trick.
I’m off to maybe go to bed before midnight! I can’t even believe it! I need it because I have a crazy busy day Thursday:
9-11am- Creative Non-Fiction
11-1pm- Mag Editing and Production
1-3- Home, dine, get supplies for second half of day
6-7- Film discussion group
7-8:30- Rush home for dinner
8:30-10- A capella practice
Have fabulous Thursdays, gorgeous friends!
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: Would you read SnackFace: The Mag? AND Do you have any irrational fears? AND Do you drink diet soda and/or chew sugar-free gum?
P.S. No updates on Carter yet 😦
