Friday The 13th


Is anyone out there superstitious? Do you believe in the whole Friday the 13th stuff?

I can’t say I really do, although it could be the reason I slept in this morning. I woke up at 3:30 am, convinced it was time to get up. Of course, I fall back asleep, and don’t wake up until my mom wakes me up at 6:10. Oops! This left me super rushed to get out the door.

I managed to chug down a glass of the juice – cranberry.

And I packed up a peanut butter, banana , and honey sandwich (on my favourite Silver Hills bread) to go.

Even though I was late getting out the door, I should have been on time for class. The trains (or was it Friday the 13th again?) were against me. We pulled into one station, and the train stopped abruptly, then sat there for 10 min. The doors didn’t open, no one came over the PA. Finally, it moves forward maybe 5 feet, and then stops again, doors open, and we’re on our merry way. If it wasn’t for those 10 mins, I would have sauntered into class right at 8 am! ARGH!

Did I also mention it is W-I-N-D-Y!!! The leaves are just whipping around out there. This, of course, means it’s freakin’ cold as well. Since I’m staying on campus to meet with my group, I knew I needed something to warm me up. I bet you can guess what that was.

It’s true. Another Starbucks Green Tea Latte (non-fat, half sweet of course). I had actually planned on making my own at home this morning to go with my breakfast, but time didn’t allow it. That’s my justification. Really.

So now I’m sitting here in the library, waiting for my group to show up so we can quickly meet (hoping it’s quick, I want to be out of here by 11:30). I have some resume flogging planned for the trip home (gotta pay for this green tea latte habit). I brought along another snack in case I get hungry before I get home.

The new (to me) Tropical Fruit Larabar. I have high hopes – it has coconut, so it has to be good, right?

Time to read some blogs until my peeps are here. Happy Friday the 13th everyone!

    Waking up in the middle of the night is the worst!! I did that last night too (although not at 3:30). Hope your group meeting went well!!

    I strongly dislike that Lara bar!

    I don’t like waking up in the middle of the night. I wake up with a massive headache and feel hungover despite that fact that I NEVER have had alcohol!

    Hope the project goes well!

    I didn’t even notice is was Friday the 13th! Ah! And a question… what do you mean when you say your latte was “half sweet”? I dont really know Starbucks terms too well…

    Thanks! 🙂

    I am so jealous that you have Starbucks on campus–I’m pretty sure I would live there if we had one, chuggin tea all day.
