The Early Bird Catches The Worm

It’s 4:05 and I am exhausted. That’s not a good sign, I’m guessing, for the rest of the day, but we’ll see how that goes. After I finished that peanut butter breakfast in the morning I threw on a jacket to go to the library. I thought I’d be smart going when it should be the warmest part of the day. Well, it was cold. I don’t know how you Midwesterners and Coloradans are doing it; I love snow and winter but that’s when I’m inside and it’s 70 degrees and I’m looking out a window. Nevertheless, I needed to print my Greek paper to hand in.

Greek Paper

Looks exciting, right? Didn’t think so. It’s not technically due till next Tuesday but it was by far the easiest of my 3 remaining papers so I just threw it together to get it done: The early bird catches the worm :-) Even though it was freezing(literally. I think this was the first time I’ve seen ice on the side of the road this year), it looked nice.

Providence Sky

I hustled and bustled around and to the lunch room where today they had a special coconut curry tofu with fixin’s. It sounded nice except the tofu was smothered in some sauce that just ruined it, and since I knew I had delicious eats in my fridge I wasn’t sweating it.

Broccoli, Carrots, Acorn Squash, Teriyaki And Ginger Sausage

Perfect. I really like this Al Fresco sausage with a little soy sauce. Unfortunately, all I had was a little soy sauce; next semester I really need to just keep a bottle instead of the store packets I “borrow”. Days and Rachael Ray were phenomenal, though I still don’t care for Ellen. Apparently, I need to watch out when I say that because she’s so many of ya’lls “favorite” 😉 Seriously, did you guys meet each other in the fan club? Well I didn’t have much chance to watch because this is what I was doing:


Move out day is 1 week away! In my dorm, we have to move out because it’s used to house athletes over the Winter break. It really sucks, but rather than cram it in to next weekend right after my last final, it seemed better to do it over 2 or 3 trips: the early bird catches the worm. But like I said, it really sucks. These books are heavy. And I have so much food. Gah! I just need to keep eating to get rid of it that way. When I decided enough was enough for this trip, I realized I was famished. Peanut butter did the trick.

Oatmeal With Peanut Butter

I’ve heard doctors tell people in stressful situations or having a baby to eat a peanut butter sandwich when they get the chance because they might not have time to eat later and it’s a good source of lasting energy. I don’t like doctors, but when they’re right, they’re right. While I was waiting for coffee to brew, I shnacked on this:


It had good texture and color, so it looked promising. And it was! I love finding good fruit at the dining hall; it’s like winning the lottery with still a crappy prize. And then rather than start working on my last 2 classes of the year I decided blogging would be much more productive. I’m pretty sure I was right on that one :-)

Here’s a coffee and carbs giveaway–love the name.

And a TRUwhip giveaway–oh wait, that’s my own, hehe

    Your squash/sausage photo reminds me of something. My mind is a little dirty sometimes…

    I prefer almond butter over peanut – same lasting effects??? I hope so!

    ugh move out was the worst at my school last year. It was so unorganized… and the elevator broke.!

    I tend to think blogging is way more productive than doing homework too :)

    And I have the SAME problem with fruit at school – it’s always hit or miss (usually miss)

    I put your package in the mail today – sorry it took me so long!
