Live and Learn
Life lessons are taught every day if you really pay attention. Ahem:
Respect your family I’m not going to get into it… My father and I have a love/hate relationship… Mostly at my own fault!
Don’t drive drunk. Or angry. Only the latter applies to me…
Treat others how you want to be treated including seeking them out if you “
bumped” their parked car…
Vent to someone who isn’t listening, otherwise you’ll drive them crazy!
Act sweet even when you have the strong desire to take a hammer to someone’s
hand foot bicycle.
Life gets crazy…get over it. Take a breath, center yourself and smile.
Okay, now that that’s out there I feel much better. I’m going to bombard you with photos… why? I’m not quite sure myself!
Oats in a carrot cake nut butter jar…
Smoothie boy’s shakes haven’t been put on the back burner though… lately they contain banana and flax!!
Salmon, tomato paste, herbs, mushrooms, spinach on toast for a delicious open faced high protein lunch.
I love my almond butter so dearly…
Curry is my
new favorite flavor in the world… “Indian” food is pretty much on the menu every night.
And that (sort’ve) brings us to this morning’s breakfast.
Pumpkin oats with Jay Robb, banana, and almond butter. This morning I woke up not feeling well at all after a long week of tension between school, work and home.
I stayed home until about 10:00, made up the things I missed and wandered around the school for a couple hours until French.
On days without Distance Learning I have a two hour break in the middle of the day so I usually come home for lunch. Today I just chatted with teachers and strolled through the halls with Janine, taking photos for our documentary.
In study hall my Christmas spirit made an appearance… he he he… and I invented the new verb “to snowflake”.
To snowflake is to take a sheet of paper (preferably important) from someone while they’re not looking, fold it up and cut it into a snowflake. I think I snowflaked study sheets, tests, and a few homework assignments… (Of other people of course!) Some are good sports and some get really upset, c’est la vie.
I must’ve started a chain reaction because the halls are filled with “snowflakes” made out of notes, calendars, planner pages, etc. Everyone is snowflaking each other’s things… and it’s awesome!!! My friends and I were dying of laughter- it’s so much fun!
Next time someone you don’t like isn’t looking, take some of their papers and snowflake them. I promise you’ll feel better! (Important documents make the prettiest flakes! )
Tonight after work I hit the gym for an hour swim… I only got to the gym twice this week! After I made pumpkin curry lentils with spinach and a toasted pita!
I was accepted to Penn State University Park!!!!! (regular decision… already!!??)
So though my life has been crazy, Thursday and Friday were a good crazy. If I decide to become a Nittany Lion, I leave in late June to begin the summer semester! Wow that’s crazy!!!
Don’t miss out on the Ohh May Christmas Give-a-way!!!!
