now what?

good evening lovelies, how is everyone today on this fine tuesday? enjoying lovely weather i hope :)

big huge thanks yous to everyone on my last post, you guys are such dolls helping to make me feel better, all y’alls encouragement does wonders :)

ps–miss emily is having an amazing 12 days of christmas giveaway at her place :) & miss heather is having a lovely giveaway as well

so now i am 2 whole days back into classes and the world has not imploded, success! aren’t you glad i’m dramatic? hah

i am super excited actually because the giant semester long group project that gave me mucho stress & frustration is OVER! yes my target case project is done-zo, and i am so glad. we presented our idea this morning, and honestly i didn’t care how it went, i let go of the project over break [can’t decide if this is a good or bad thing….probably somewhere in the middle] because i decided that i had put in enough work for it, and since its was a group project i let the rest of the group handle it. i had done my part and now they had to do theirs, i am not doing it for them anymore. i’m sure you all feel me on this, group projects can be such a stress, especially when other members do not do their fair share. anyway–rant over!–as is the project :)

other than that today has been relatively uneventful, and i am not complaining—today i got some great grades back (especially compared to yesterday when i found out i got a 54% on a midterm ughh whatever its over and my gpa isn’t even transferring) now i am just waiting for my roommate to skedaddle so i can indulge in some YOGA, ahh i am so looking forward to it!

oh look look what i got over break—

fresh market creamy french vanilla, fresh ground, BLISSful

this coffee is so delicious, flavorful, and has the most beautiful aroma. in essence i love it.

and this afternoon i finally found a banana on campus, let me tell you i have had 2 days with banana-less breakfasts and that is 2 days too many. banana bliss returns tomorrow :)

and a mini review: a dish by my personal chef; aka amy

first try....dun dun duhhh

a top spinach & brussels sprouts, not the most gorgeous of meals...

the verdict? FANTASTIC mmm, i am pretty leery about lasagna as it tends to be really heavy and greasy, not my thing. but this rocked, just enough ricotta and sauce, and i personally think the brussels were a genius addition.

not much else in other news…it actually looks as though i am not going to be too terribly busy in these days before christmas break. i like this, but i am also worried about it. i tend to get anxious when i have nothing to do and make up stupid things to stress me out. all i want is for these next two weeks to speed along so i can get on with my life & go home.

tips?? what do you like to do to keep yourself occupied when downtime exists?

well i think that will be all for today, but look out i have plans for some insightful (hopefully?) posts for the coming days :)

  1. i just workout. but then again, i DO get soo bored. it’s sad.
    never tried amy’s frozen meals! i’ll hit this one up- although we have a pan of lasagne from t-day in teh freezer tho!

  2. That lasagna looks delish – I’ve always wanted to try it!!

    Hope roomie got outta there soon so you could do some yoga!! :)

  3. yeah yeah bananasssssssssss sadly you got one and i have none right now (ate mine today.) i will curl up with my naner pillow for comfort. =D

    happy tuesday- inkow i’m freakin’ about this elbow situation!

  4. I always see that meal in the frozen section, but I have yet to try it! Too scared, I guess. Dumb ED. I think I will take a chance :)

    Youre the best, love you!
    bec xo

    i dont really get bored.. ill call a friend or read or yoga or workout or watch tv or skim your lovely blogs!

  6. 2 days without a banana…blasphemy!


    You’ll be fine for these couple weeks – just try to take advantage of your free time by treating yourself to some yoga, paint your nails, snuggle up and read a good book…etc. Those are things I do when I’m killing time at home alone – minus the yoga part which really should be added, because I need to get into it!

    enjoy your coffee!


  7. hey em :) glad you got your group project finished up! i’m in a similar situation…3 group projs, actually. and they are all due the last day of classes, so its dragggingggg out until next week. annoying! i just want them to be done.

    good job on your grades! umm…hehe…i got a 50% on a midterm last week, too. whatever.

    i feel you on downtime…omg, my biggest fear in the day! i try to clean, take a walk, read a book, or call my mom/a friend. i know its hard. hopefully these last weeks go quickly for us!

    keep your chin up :D <3

  8. i read read and read when when i have time…best way to up my vocab! :D

  9. I don’t think I ever get bored…if I have my laptop with me, I’m forever looking up on something, reading blogs, or writing! :-)

    and boy. I do know about bad team members. That’s why group projects are always a tough thing for me. I have to keep my perfectionism in check or I’ll drive everyone (and they’re drive me) crazy!

  10. I would have to say that blogging definately fills up any boredom-filled hole in my schedule :P I’m sure you will find something to do *cough* yoga addict *cough* :) haha.

    I think it’s a wonderful thing that you ‘let go’ of your project over the holidays. Stressing over it wouldn’t have made a difference now, and the perfectionism would have just driven you crazy inside. It might seem like a small step, but it’s huge when you think about how you usually deal with stress!

  11. I love Amy’s veggie lasange! They’re the only lasange I eat :)

    As for filling your time over the holiday… I like to set myself some little projects to keep myself occupied. Like making a photo album, making christmas cards/gifts, baking christmassy food :) oh and I take the opportunity to sort out cupboards/draws/rooms that need organising. Its also a great time to socialise so I always try to make the effort to meet up with friends I don’t see so often, even if its just for a coffee.

    Enjoy your day!
