My Reading Week is finally here. Better start it off right!
No better time than the first day off (FRIDAY) to polish off the last remnants of edible white gold. Adieu Artisana Coconut Butter. It was delicious while it lasted. Until next time… which shall be far off into the future. You’re too rich for my blood.
Wanting to really go all out, I had Harveys for lunch and Sushi for dinner. Eating out 2x in one day? Rebel!
Harvey’s does serve up a mean veggie burger. And sushi is just always the right idea. Even if you forget to take pictures of it all and have to score the internet for some that are much prettier than the food you actually ate anyway.
Friday night was saved for movie watching. The real celebrating was saved for the weekend.
Saturday morning overnight oats in a cantaloupe bowl? Don’t mind if I do. Instant oats + pumpkin + berry greek yogurt + cinnamon + soy butter on top.
Saturday day I did the work thing. Saturday evening was a very belated Xmas work dinner. We eat at the same restaurant every year. Bread Basket + Bruschetta + Grilled Lemon Chicken Breast and Greek Salad = one memorable meal.
Not memorable enough to take my own pictures though apparently. Doh. Thanks Google.
With a belly full of eats I headed home, repaired my melting makeup and went out for a bar night. Long overdue with that school thing getting in the way. It was grand.
So grand that I did it again the next night. Same bar, same drinks. Different people, different music. Saturday night = dance music. Sunday night = Retro! Both equally awesome and equally dance-inducing.
Who needs sleep.
Well by Monday night I sure did. I slept a total of ~8 hours over the course of the entire weekend. I am completely incapable of sleeping in no matter WHAT time I go to bed the night (or morning…) before. So yesterday (Monday) was completely lazy in the best of ways.
I baked squash for lunch. Which doesn’t happen nearly often enough this term since I often don’t have the hour it takes to wait for a squash to roast in between classes. Look at that dry, crumbly squash perfection though. Just how I like em!
I had spaghetti (or uhh rotini?) and meatballs for dinner. The ultimate comfort meal. And since Monday was not only a Reading Week day off but also the “Family Day” holiday, this was a pretty appropriate fam jam kinda meal too.
And then after doing a tiny bit of textbook reading (I’m trying not to be a complete slacker, I’d say 5 pages is pretty hardcore for the beginning of reading week), I was in bed. Lights off by 10:30 thank you very much. I think that’s the earliest I’ve gone to bed in at least a year.
And now I finally feel alive again.
But it’s already Tuesday. Okay, I should say it’s only Tuesday. But I feel like it’s going so fast that tomorrow is actually going to be Friday. Slow down Reading Week!
Another thing I’ve done a lot of this start of Reading Week?
This isn’t important whatsoever, I just thought it was weird. Seriously. What’s with the grapefruit? I don’t mind it but I’m not even the biggest grapefruit fan. I guess it was just there and seemed like good breakfast accompaniment. My cholesterol levels must be just bangin’ this week.
Tuna too, but it didn’t get as much picture action.
What about veggies? Yeeeeah a few of those happened.
With crumbled veggie burgers and roasted red pepper dip.
Or clean and simple.
Now I’d better go try to utilize my precious remaining Reading Week time before it disappears into thin air. Now how should I do that… with some Reading? If it’s a textbook, not today!
Even if you’re not partying it up with a Reading Week right now, I’m pretty sure a lot of us got to enjoy a nice long weekend this weekend so What did you do with your extra day? Travel anywhere, relax, get all those looming chores done? I’m a little jealous of all the people that took off to those hot and sunny vacation destinations. I could use a little more Vit D…and a lot more colour. Hey Casper. I’m thinking some sunless tanner might be in order…
