Information Overload

I am so over homework today. And yet, my homework is definitely not over

Iโ€™ve spent an excessive amount of time cramming psychology information in there, mixed in with some food ethics readings and discussions. But I finally dragged myself away from my workspace (the dining room table, much to my motherโ€™s dismay), and down to my other computer, which I am keeping free of anything homework related, at least for the time being. That way, blogging is more fun ๐Ÿ˜€

After some much needed sleep this morning, I got up to make breakfast brunch. Alas, all the decent sized bowls in the house were in the dishwasher, not clean. Bah! So I had to revamped my breakfast plans for a big bowl of cereal.

Instead, there was a little bowl of cereal โ€“ Natureโ€™s Path Mesa Sunrise, craisins, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

And a slice of Silver Hills โ€œThe Big 16โ€ bread toasted with peanut butter & raspberry jam.

Plus the usual glass of juice โ€“ still on the cranberry.

A very red breakfast, completely unintentional.

Yes, I was even studying at breakfast. Or maybe thatโ€™s what I want you to believe. Only I know for sure ๐Ÿ˜‰

There was some definite studying after that though. I did take a short break to do some yoga. My cousin lent me a DVD with some short 20 min yoga sessions on it, so I figured Iโ€™d try one of them out. Rodney Yee was the instructor in this one. Can someone tell the man to put on proper shorts or pants though? I felt a little violated watching him in his weird yoga underwear.

There was more psych studying, and then I got hungry. It was too late to have a real lunch, so I just grabbed a larger snack.

Some sort of grainy bagel with herb & garlic cream cheese. Not my favourite bagels ever, but it was there, and made the perfect vehicle for the cream cheese.

Uhโ€ฆmore studying? Probably. And important email writing with my group members. Then dinner โ€“ which was take out Chinese, because no one felt like cooking tonight.

All the usual suspects here โ€“ chow mien, fried rice, sweet & sour pork, beef & broccoli, breaded almond chicken, spring roll. You know how it goes.

We got fortune cookies with our order this time. Mine had two inside!

Yes, that is a diagram of a nerve cell off to the left. At least I sat at the kitchen table, text book free, to eat my dinner!

So then there was more homework, with a hockey game (we won), and SYTYCD Canada in the background. Once those finished, I declared homework time officially over, so I could bring you my ever exciting day. Iโ€™m all about my readers

Now Iโ€™m off to find sleep. Mostly so I can get up tomorrow, and do this all again. Night!

    Hi Marianne!

    I think I have contacted you once or twice in the past about questions on your blog– Just wanted to let you know I started my own and would love for you to check it out sometime. You have been really inspirational to me in the last year or so and I have loved reading about your life going back to school and living at home again.

    I’ve never seen Rodney in action but from your description it makes me think of those basketball players from the 70s. That kind of clothing would be illegal now ๐Ÿ˜‰
