Remember all that fancy-pants, emotional crap I spewed for my New Years Resolution?
Scratch that. My New Year’s Resolution is not to lose another damn one of these:
For those of you who have not yet reached college OR those of you who have passed it, that is an ID card. At different schools, it serves different purposes. At mine, it is your key to food, your dorm, and the gym. So, essentially, my life.
I tend to lose them. I mean, I know people who are worse; thus far I lost one last quarter and one this quarter. Not even in a drunken stupor. Au contraire, my friends, I only ever lose things when stone-cold sober.
Of course they were both in the most obvious of places. Yesterday I literally had the card in my hand, walked into my building, and when I walked back out 5 minutes later it had disappeared. I was starving and cranky after four hours of classes and couldn’t be bothered to wait around for someone to find mine, so I spent $15 on a new one. Two hours later someone knocks at my door.
Other typical things? This salad, which I ate for lunch. I eat almost the exact same salad, filled with fresh greens, for at least one meal a day. Sometimes I get crazy and add a bunch of beans or tofu (they’re hidden in there somewhere). If I’m feeling decadent I’ll toss in a few croutons. But I’m hopelessly addicted to the fresh, crisp feeling of crunchy vegetables.
This is, in large part, why I am not a daily-eats blogger. You would get bored. You probably still get bored, but trust me, this is better than it could be.
I spent the rest of my typical day in a frenzy dashing between buildings and classes and labs and learning. Heaven forbid! And, of course, taking pictures of myself on photobooth. The most distracting program known to man.
I did, however, try a little something out of the ordinary yesterday:
Yes, a cookie. To balance out my salad. And in lieu of fresh-baked cookies made by yours truly, this really did taste good. Definitely healthy, but still actually a little too sweet for me! I loved the crunch of the walnuts, though, and the fact that I didn’t feel as bad about eating it as I might have had it been a massive cafeteria cookie. Not exactly a nutritional powerhouse, with 360 calories (oops) and not much to show for them, but fabulous for when you’re craving a cookie. And carbs. Which, for me, is always.
After enjoying my eats, I walked outside into the sunshine. Oh, California, how I love thee.
