It’s official: my immune system hates me. Either that or it hates this weather that’s been going down for the past two months. I’m hoping it’s the latter because spring is right around the corner. I’m once again all jacked up on
Mountain Dew Theraflu, Tylenol and sixteen bags of cough drops (black cherry flavored.) Anywho, I can only hope that it subsides before Monday…if it doesn’t, I’ll be sporting at least seven layers of sweaters, a mondo sized mug of tea and a ridiculously adorable lung-hack cough to class. Marry me?!
Maybe it’s my lack of veggies and overabundance of protein bars, although during each semester of college I’ve always lived that way. I have been enjoying some delicious breakfasts though and whodathunk (yep, it’s a word) that Whole Foods would be stocked up on fresh berries? Sign me up (…for a ridiculous price)
In between class and projects, I managed to make time for friends, family and the sort. Something I neglected to do enough last semester because I had felt that there was always something I needed to get done for class, always somewhere to be for class and always a project to finish. Not that anything’s different in the workload aspect this semester, but no excuses and guilt – I NEED to carve out more time for outings, even if it’s just to Trader Joe’s:
My friend Mandy and I have weekly adventures to keep ourselves sane. If that’s what you’d like to call it. Although I did feel a little insane with anger and delusion when I heard the words “we’ve got none left” in response to my question: “yo, where’s the peanut flour?!” Not acceptable, TJ’s.
There’s a fine line between working hard and working too hard. I already feel a lot less stressed and overwhelmed when I just set aside a few hours a day to myself, to spend with others and chat on the phone with super sweet friends. So important, especially because my college career is about to end…craziness!
I wish I could say I had fantastic plans for the weekend, but I don’t; unless my nasty cough goes away and my throat stops feeling like there’s a sea urchin throwing a prickly party on it, I’ll be chillin with my homies at home…aka my dog and my Dad. No complaining, really. Especially because it also involves a fireplace and heat blanket. I’m off to enjoy my new favorite dinner:
