Hello Friday Friends! (Friday Friends? Friends on Friday? I don’t know what I’m getting at, ignore that).
How’s the week been?! Mine’s been good, complete with some swimming, good food, friends, and finally coming to terms with the fact that I actually really like the song Break Free by Ariana Grande.

It’s surprisingly catchy, and I actually find it pretty motivating. Sorry, I like pop songs.
An Embarrassing Confession
Depending on your level of weirdness (side note- I think weirdness is a good thing), you may or may not think I am absurdly strange based on what I’m about to tell you.
Do you know what’s in this bag? (Hint: it’s not chocolate covered bananas…)
Yup, not only do I carry peanut butter around in my backpack from time to time, I also carry around small packages of protein powder. In my defence, I don’t whip it out at the dinner table, or in front of a crowd I don’t know, but it really does come in handy!
Yesterday I was at Small World doing some work with Meredith, and wanted a little snack before going to noon yoga. I bought myself a Greek yogurt and banana, and added an extra punch of protein by mixing in a scoop of chocolate protein powder!
It was delicious, filling, and did a great job of fuelling me through a vinyasa yoga class!
Last night we had a co-ed team dinner at Thai Village, one of the local restaurants that allows college students to come in and be rowdy. Geez, they put up with a lot. Anyhow, it was a lot of fun, and I ordered some sort of vegetable stir-fry with chicken, and also had a few pieces of calamari which was surprisingly good!
I filled my fro yo cup with a lot of mango, bananas, blueberries and strawberries, as well as some cashews and pumpkin fro yo! Oh, and you know I put some dollops of peanut butter on those banana slices 😉
Afterwards, we stopped by Murray Dodge, a place on campus that provides free tea and cookies every night from 10:00 pm -12:30 am. They’re freshly baked, homemade, and so, so delicious.
You could say we had a bit of a sugar-high after our double dessert sesh 🙂
I ended up not going out in the end, and instead hung out with some friends in the dorms until about 2 am (waaaaat!), but it was so worth it, and so fun. Although it made it a liiiiitttttle difficult to wake up at 7:45 this morning to go swimming with Kira, I am so glad I spent time catching up with friends I hadn’t seen much this year.
Like I said, this morning started off with an early morning swim (although not as early as Wednesday!) with Kira!
After cleaning my room and a shower, I made the whole 2 minute trek out to Wawa for some of my beloved Pumpkin Spice coffee, and to pick up a Chobani “flip” for breakfast.
The Chobani “flip” was okay, but too sugary for me. I got the coconut, almond and chocolate flavour, and although it tasted great, it was a lot like dessert for breakfast. I know, I know, I’m usually okay with desserty-type things for breakfast, but this one had a looottttt of sugar in it. Too much.
Well, those are the highlights from the morning and past day or so. I’m hoping to catch some of the volleyball and soccer games that are on this weekend at home- they’re my favourite sports to go watch! Go Tigers!
What are your plans for the weekend?
Do you do anything equally as embarrassing as my peanut butter/protein powder backpack thing?
