This semester is out of control. It’s without a doubt the most academically challenging I’ve had so far in my undergraduate career, and on top of that, I am a TA and a research assistant. Sleep has been my best friend this semester.
Sleep and running. They will keep me sane.
Because of the major mental energy that has went into memorizing all the skull bones, vertebral columns, and pelvic girdle of every living vertebrate class, I have no brainpower left to form a cohesive blog post. Enjoy the random assortment of eats, life tid-bits, and whatever else comes to my mind.
These are carrot fries. You should welcome them into your life. To make them, cut up carrots into thin french fry shapes (or be lazy like me and buy carrots already thinly sliced). I lightly coated the carrots with olive oil and salt. You can add other seasonings and get creative with it, but I just wanted to stick to the basics my first time. I baked on 425 for about 35 minutes. They turn out crispy on the outside like french fries. Trust me on this, these veggies are so good any kid will eat them.
This is my frozen hot chocolate which was consumed after a 7 mile ride on the stationary bike. It is the perfect post-workout food! Check out the recipe under my recipe tab.
Yes, I managed to do about 7 miles on the stationary bike. Which is amazing because I normally get bored on gym machines. How did I manage to keep myself glued to the bike so long? Well…I kept myself glued to a good book at the same time of course!
I bought this book on a whim yesterday (with my parents’ money….Thanks mom!) In my defense, there are much worse things I could spend $8 dollars on and much worse things I could do with my time than reading dystopian fictions written for teenagers. I’ve been thinking about reading this book ever since I heard it recommended to people who love The Hunger Games. I’m only 50 pages in and its great already. Can’t wait to squeeze in some reading time tomorrow.
Breakfast was for dinner tonight. I love breakfast. I also love eggs because they are so beyond quick and easy and satisfying. It took me about 5 minutes to make this dinner. Not too shabby. Haven’t done the dishes yet though…
And with that, I’m off to bed.
