Home Sweet Home1

December 16, 2008

I am home now finally! Sorry I haven’t been posting much but I was busy studying slash taking finals and saying goodbye to friends. I wont see any of my friends from school for nine months which I am pretty sad about. Anyways I got home late last night and woke up very late today. I just bummed around the house all day pretty much. I cleans my room and unpacked, went for a run, and went to the grocery store. I only went on a two mile run but it was one of the best runs i’ve ever done on that loop! As for my plans for tomorrow, I have none thus far. I may be babysitting but if not I will probably be heading over to whole foods.

 

For breakfast I had a bowl of oats made with:

  • 1/2 cup oats, water, and milk
  • cinnamon
  • a whole banana
  • some walnuts
  • about 6 strawberries

After my run I have some carrots and cherry tomatos.

About an hour after dinner I had an apple and then a waffle with dark chocolate dreams peanut butter and some Trader Joe’s dark chocolate covered blueberries with a mug of tea.

I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I am finally done with finals! Sorry for the lack of posting but I have been pretty much living in the library. I am leaving on Sunday to go home.  Here are some random pictures of snacks and meals from the past few days.

First Final

December 10, 2008

So today I have my first final of the week at 3:00. I’m working from 12:00-2:00 (I work in a library so I can pretty much just do whatever I want which today would be studying). I have a short break so I will most likely grab a salad or a veggie sub for lunch which I will try to remember to take a picture of. Sorry I did not photograph my breakfast this morning but it seemed pretty boring because I had the same oatmeal I have been having except I had some blackberries on top. I have been trying to eat up the food in my apartment because I’m moving out on Sunday :(. I’ve been having those flavored oatmeal packets which are definitely not my favorite because they are way too sweet for my taste in the morning. Today I had a Quaker Simple Harvest one which is good but not a lot of oats because they put nuts in it. I like them but I already put my own nuts on top. Oh well, I guess I’ll know just to not buy flavored oatmeal packets because they are usually an impulse purchase. Anyways, I was going to go running before work but I though laying in bed sounds much more appealing :). I might go after my final depending on what time I get out because it really isn’t safe to run in the dark around here.

 

And here are some food photos for your viewing pleasure. These are all from this summer!

Free at last!

December 9, 2008

I am done with classes for the semester! I still have finals later this week but still. I had two classes today which were fine. I came back to my apartment and had a quick lunch and then went to work for a couple of hours. After work I went on a quick 3 mile run. I’m about to go a dinner in a few minutes so this is just a quick post.

I was looking at some pictures today and I decided to do a post with photos from when I went to Israel three months ago. These are mostly food photos. Unfortunately I didn’t get any of the amazing falafel of schwarma they had!
