Hey everyone. I’m glad that you’re all enjoying my latest Q&A post.
Frankly, I didn’t really want to write this post since my week has been all over the place. I feel like a frickin’ mountain goat with all of the ups and downs that I’ve been experiencing since I got home from the long weekend on Monday.
Good – I’m already done with the first week of classes. The last day of the session is August 17, giving me a little over a week until I move.
Bad – I still haven’t heard bad about my Honors Option refusal. It’s been over a month and I feel like no one wants to work with me to try and figure this out, despite the fact that I’ve already contacted 3 people all in different levels of administration.
FANTASTIC – The boyfrand texted me the most awesome thing the other day while I was studying: He wants to become a vegetarian! Note: I in no way pestered him about this or lectured him at all. But, this seriously made my night. I can’t wait to help him as he transitions to the veg life.
Not So Good – My IBS has been absolutely terrible since Monday. Last night I was even woken up by pain and no matter what I did it wouldn’t go away. It’s starting to interfere with my daily life again and that is not OK in the least. But, I have no idea how to get better. None.
Delicious – I made my first Mama Pea recipe yesterday: Zucchini Quinoa Lasagna. I didn’t exactly follow the recipe, I guess I got a little too excited and accidentally skipped some steps. Oops! But I think that it still turned out pretty well; though I need to work on my zucchini slicing skillz. A few of the modifications that I made are: I used a bigger pan (I don’t have an 8″x8″), replaced the onion with garlic (I totally read “garlic” instead of “onion”), used a tomato-basil pasta sauce instead of marinara sauce, omitted the non-dairy cream cheese (I had some on hand but forgot about it) and non-dairy cheese topping. I’m hoping to make this again when the boyfrand comes to visit in a few weeks, but to pay more attention to what I’m doing, haha.
Blah – I don’t know if it’s just the fact that I’ve felt like complete crap this week, but I’ve just had a really hard time keeping depression at bay. It’s not an all the time thing, but it does seem like I’ve been feeling bad more often than I’ve been feeling good. I’m going to give it a few more days, but if it persists then I’m going to make an appointment with my psychiatrist to talk and try to figure this thing out. Until then, I probably won’t be posting as much, but I will still be around commenting and tweeting most likely.
Much Needed – I had a really nice time hanging out with my old friend Ash the other day. We just talked a lot, nothing deep, but then I can’t really expect to just delve back into the kind of friendship that we had once-upon-a-time right away. I Am Number Four was on in the background. Not a terrible movie, but I don’t think I’m quite as devoted to it as she is (this was her fourth time watching it). I hope that it’s not another 2 months before I get to see her again. As much as I’ve been upset about our friendship over the past 2 years, it kind of all goes out of my mind when we actually get together.
Could Be Better – Classes starting means that I spend most of my “free time” reading and studying for said classes. Accelerated courses for the win. I sort of miss being able to read whatever I want whenever I want without having to worry about falling behind in something, but there is literally no way that I can work ahead in my classes because the course content is time-released, as in, I can’t view it until a certain date/time, and those dates/times are exactly the most desirable. It’ll all be over soon though, I suppose and I go back to having a normally-paced course load at the end of August when classes start up again.
What’s the best thing that happened to you this week?
What was the worst?
