Didn’t get a chance to pop in yesterday, but I’m here (briefly) today! My lack of blogging doesn’t reflect at all the amount of content I have to say- it reflects my lack of time! As I have stated in probably every single post for the past couple of weeks, my life has been constantly consumed by thesis- so much so that I even had trouble sleeping this weekend! (And I usually sleep really well…).
Anyway! Although thesis has turned my life upside down in some ways, I am finding joy in some strange ways, and kind of feel like a completely different person which is weird. Read on…
- Not getting hungry/ignoring/putting off hunger
I like to eat. You know that. However, when “more important” things get in the way (like shopping…or Disneyland!), I forget to eat, or just postpone it because I am so consumed with the task at hand. For example, yesterday I think I had a yogurt for lunch, and then a salad at like 9 pm. I have no idea what is going on with my body.
Although running long distances hurts my knee (ahem… catch up post to come on that once thesis is done), I have been turning to it for physical exercise and a mental break.
Yesterday I think I just went and sprinted for about 45 minutes and swear I could have kept going. My mind never gets bored, and I am constantly thinking of things I have to check off my to-do list.
- Panera online ordering
Did this tonight at 9:30 pm after I forgot to eat dinner when I was in the library. Saved me. Food was ready in 10 mins. Panera, thank you.
- Breakfast in library at desk
Fage 0% Greek yogurt + protein bar.
Not a bad way to start off yesterday morning.
- Freshly baked cookies at midnight
This building on campus called Murray Dodge offers free tea and freshly baked cookies every night from 10 pm -12:30 am. They are delicious. (Don’t judge their deliciousness based off of my subpar picture).
Sunday night, Hadley and I stopped by on our way back to our dorm rooms from the library. I had three chocolate chip cookies and felt like a million bucks.
- Gratitude “Dream” Juice
My teammate, Kira, surprised me the other day by bringing my my favourite favourite favourite drink ever- Raw cashew, agave, vanilla and cinnamon juice! It really tastes like a creamy, cinnamon-y smoothie, and it’s pretty filling!
It was so delicious, and fortunately I was able to savour it over a few days. Thanks, Kira – you rock!
- Ghee & Himalayan Salt Popcorn (sent from home)
I got a package the other day from home, a little unlike things you might usually order- organic, locally produced popcorn, from Victoria, BC!
You know it’s supposed to be “healthy” when it has chickens on the front- right?
Thanks Mom! I look forward to more of these packages 🙂
OK that’s all from me! Time to go study!
When you have academic stresses, do you find your body doing different things? aka does your hunger go away???
