Breakfast was kind of boring this morning. I was still in a terrible mood from the internet debacle and waking up knowing that you still have no internet or cable is just not a good way to start the day.
Oatbran, pumpkin, cinnamon, flaxseed, protein powder, homemade cashew butter, and maple syrup. It didn’t really taste like much, but I just didn’t care today.
After breakfast, I packed up and headed to campus 4 hours before my exam actually was so that I could get on the internet. I needed to finish my WIAW post from yesterday, check e-mail, and all that other good stuff (like catch up on my ma-hoo-ssively long Reader). It wasn’t terrible, except for the fact that I was sitting on a tiled floor for that entire time span and had no access to food other than the measly sandwich and some carrots that I thought to bring. Finals screw up my schedule so much! I’m very much the kind of person who has a “routine” and when something messes it up I get kinda stressed and flustered.
Dates, soymilk, fruit preserve wraps, and trail mix were consumed between lunch and dinner (which ended up being pretty late because of a bunch of stuff that got in the way), which was pretty boring. Spaghetti with vegetables in marinara and nooch; pretty bland looking. I’ve been having some big aversions to tomato sauce lately and if it weren’t for the fact that I’m trying to use up the already open jar I probably wouldn’t have even had spaghetti tonight. Man, do I need to go to the grocery store. I’m out of all of my favorite things/staples!
After the day I’ve had, I think some chocolate and/or peanut butter is in my near future for my night-time snack. Agreed? Enter in my peanut butter souffle. Stuffed with mini vegan chocolate chips and one topped in chocolate syrup. Satisfaction.
Last final of the year today! It was in Physiology and I went in feeling very confident that I had learned the material and could recall whatever information was required of me. It was incredibly easy. I was in and out (and double checked my answers) in about 15 minutes flat. I’m almost 100% sure that I 4.0’d every one of my classes this semester, but I’ll find out for sure by the 11th.
Now I get 10 days off to “relax” until summer classes start. I’m sure that it will go by far too quickly.
I got the best “end of semester” gift ever upon arriving home. The cable guy had come and fixed our internet and TV! You have no idea how good that made me feel. Not to mention that is was an absolutely gorgeous day today. Sun sun sun and warm. 🙂 However, even though the cable got fixed, we’re still having tons of internet problems that no amount of tech support seems to be able to remedy. This has made me incredibly stressed, and when that happens I start lashing out at anyone who talks to me. I feel terrible, but it’s what I do and I don’t have any quick fix for my anger issues.
I received some awesome news today courtesy of my mama: we’re going to be taking Zumba classes together for 2 months this summer! I’ve never tried Zumba, but I’ve read about it on peoples’ blogs and it sounds like an incredibly fun workout. I’m so excited to try it and to be able to do it with my mom at the same time!
I woke up really early for some reason, so I decided I might as well get Part 1 of my workout out of the way before my shower. So, I popped in Jillian’s 30 Day Shred DVD and struggled my way through Level 1. My upper body strength is just pathetic. I’m working on it, and I know that it takes time to get stronger, but in the meantime I feel like a weakling.
After my exam, I came home for a run in the wonderful sun!
Mile 1: 8:31
Mile 2: 7:55
Mile 3: 7:45
What is up with me being so speedy lately when I feel like I’m dragging?! Not that I’m complaining, of course, haha.
I’m now on Formspring! I plan on doing another Q&A post once I get enough responses. Seriously, ASK ME ANYTHING. My running, past, relationships, family, school, ED, advice, nothing is off limits. And it’s completely anonymous, so don’t hold back.
What do you do when something happens that messes up your routine?
How do you deal with stress?
