Right now, I want more than anything to snuggle up with friends or my sisters (whom just so happen to be my BEST friends) and watch Little Rascals or Mulan. After the past few crazy days, I totally need to relax with my favorite kid movies.
So here’s what I’ve been up to lately:
Today I ran the Oberlin Earth Day 5k! Two of my friends ran it with me, and we all had a super amazing great time.
(sorry for the blurriness in this picture and all the rest of them. My phone has a lovely 2 megapixel camera. I really need to get a real camera…)
Anyways, that is clearly the face of a girl high on running endorphins! This picture was taken just after I walked home from the race. My hands were FROZEN! Also, I’m awkwardly holding up my shirt, so you can see my super cool official number.
I ran the 5k in 30:29. I know that’s still not fast, but I’m improving! I’m super happy with that time!! (Especially taking into consideration that I decided to run this race on a whim, I was going on a 5 hours of sleep, and I was probably a little dehydrated from Friday night’s festivities).
So today, after the race I forced my super tired self to study lots of chemistry and anthropology. I really hate when I’m not particularly interested in the classes I’m taking because I literally have to force myself to study for them. Studying for my biology classes isn’t always easy either, but it is much more enjoyable to me!
Onto some recent eats:
This could quite possibly be the most un-photogenic meal ever, but I promise it tasted amazing.
It’s taco salad containing shredded lettuce, refried beans, corn, salsa, and cottage cheese. And then of course there is a flat bread on the side for making tacos. I absolutely love food that involves dipping or wrapping as you eat it…playing with your food never quite grows old.
Speaking of which! Totally awesome date idea is to make a spaghetti dinner and eat it with your hands. Darren and I did that once, and it was super fun.
This is just toast with homemade white bean dip along with carrots and broccoli slaw salad on the side. My roommate, Emma, introduced me to this amazing white bean dip “recipe.” Just put a can of white beans into a food processor or blender with about 1-3 teaspoons of Penzy’s Greek Seasoning (depending on your taste preference). I’m super in love with this Greek seasoning blend. I also love homemade bean dips/hummus because it’s SO much cheaper than buying store bought. A container of hummus= more than $3. A can of beans= about 66 cents. Winning.
Well that was a whole lot of random, but it felt good to write Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
