Time Warp

Wow, what happened to me posting anything on Friday? My day just got away from me, and by the time I made it down to the computer, I was just too tired to write up anything worth reading. I’m still trying to figure out this whole school schedule thing and how it works with my sleep patterns and everything else. I’m sure you all understand.

So, let’s get caught up, shall we?

Friday morning means up at the crack of dawn   It also means I have little interest in making anything too complicate for breakfast.

Cereal it was! Just a bowl full of Kashi GoLean Crunch and milk. I didn’t even bother trying to doctor it up.

Paired up with the usual glass of cranberry pomegranate juice.

5:30 am definitely requires quick & easy when it comes to breakfast.

After an uneventful commute and a thrilling biochemistry lecture on amino acids, I wandered over to one of the many Starbucks on campus to get some caffeine in my system – in the form of an iced green tea latte.

I’m so high maintenance when I order: “I’d like a grande, non-fat, half sweet, iced green tea latte please”. I had to repeat it twice, and the customer in line just ahead of me just laughed. I’m picky, what can I say? 😀

Why did I need the caffeine? Because I was staying on campus for awhile to meet up with my group to discuss and work on our first presentation for next Thursday. Man, my group is quiet. I was really having to draw out some discussion amongst them. I hate feeling like I’m being overbearing and taking over control, but I refuse to get a bad mark because the others I have to work with aren’t into it. Ah, the perils of group work

I packed a lunch of sorts to take with me to school as well, since I didn’t know quite how long I’d be there.

Carrot & cucumber slices with some delicious dill dip, plus a wedge of Laughing Cow.

A Cashew Cookie Larabar.

And an apple that I never got around to eating while I was out.

I came home for the customary afternoon nap, followed by some camera shy homemade cookies I spent the afternoon searching for jobs and working on some homework. It was all sorts of thrilling!

Dinner time rolled around, and since it was take out Friday, we ended up with pizza. I think pizza & Chinese food are the go-to meals for take out nights in this house! Again, we ordered from Pizza Hut, and my dad was nice enough to ask what pizza I wanted. I decided to go with the Chicken Florentine, which was grilled chicken, baby spinach, roasted red pepper, and tomato. I subbed out the tomato for mushrooms though. Yum!

As you can see, I had my two slices with a couple of cheesy bread sticks and was perfectly satisfied. At least until evening snack time came around.

I sliced up the gala apple I hadn’t eaten at lunch, and dipped the slices in a blob of creamy & delicious peanut butter.

And that, my friends, is what happened ‘round here on Friday. Another exciting day in the life of me!

    Green tea lattes are my favourite!

    I always hated group work when I was in school. I always preferred working on my own and not having to worry about other peoples intentions (or lack there of).
