this week (and weekend) need to be OVER
i am so so tired. no rest until this weekend.. my last speech is saturday, for which i am completely unprepared but can’t pay attention to until tomorrow night. tonight is my math final and then i have to come home and take another final that will take at least an hour. tomorrow night i do the cats, then have to come home for a speech class activity online at 9, then i have to work on my speech! friday night i finish working on my speech. saturday i give the speech. saturday night i have a black tie to go to with chris. sunday i have to do the last bits of stuff for my film class. at some point i want to go to the air & sea show with my babe.
for complete disclosure, i’ve been kinda unfocused about school the past couple of nights. i should have been studying math, but at this point i just kinda think i’m as ready as i’m going to be. i had to figure out a couple of things for the final, but beyond that i am going to have to depend upon what i already learned. we’ll see.
then my next round of classes starts on wednesday.. :( i was thinking they’d give us a week or so in between semesters, but noooooo.. luckily, i found out one class i was going to take this summer isn’t actually required, so i got to drop that. now it’s just three classes over the summer! when i say “just three” i’m being genuine, but really should
be being sarcastic because it’s a pretty decent workload, considering the summer sessions are so much shorter. i am going to do a (normally four-month) american lit class in 1.5 months!
yesterday after i got home i went out to throw some compost in the bin and water some plants. then oreo wanted some attention, so i sat down on the front step to pet her. she laid at my side. i thought that looked comfortable, so i leaned back onto the pavement. fast forward 45+ minutes, i hear chris’s truck door slam – i had fallen asleep! thankfully the front step is pretty much hidden by plants and stuff, so anyone passing by wouldn’t have to know that i was asleep in the front yard. :)
still doing the raw thing – including snacks, until dinner, save for my daily coffee – and have kept it up since, like, last Monday. It’s actually not even hard. Today I overslept so didn’t get to make my customary fruit topping (almond butter & pineapple juice, food processed) so just ate fruit dipped in almond butter until I was satisfied. I like it, and like the idea of it – and that 2/3 of my meals are vegan, too. vegetarian is so not enough, but i just never had the self discipline to be vegan. yet, doing raw (save for raw cheeses, which i rarely bother with, or raw meats, which, yeah, no way) defaults to vegan.. yet doesn't feel like i'm depriving myself of anything!
last night, i had field roast
for dinner.. i ate, like, half a loaf of it. that was a pretty fair dinner portion (two servings), but afterwards.. i felt so full. heavy full. i didn’t like it – and i think that’s the feeling i used to be aiming for! i think my non-raw dinners will have to be tempered by salad or veggies in the future.
