I make-a da List!

1. Went to Trader Joe’s today – got lots of probiotic smoothies for the morning, so I can start eating breakfast again — Maybe I’ve been feeling low lately because of my lack of breakfast??????? I also got a few pizzas & dad didn’t want me to because there’s apparently a lot of trans fat in it, but mom wanted it so he was overruled 😉 But I’m really glad that I’ve cut out eating entire pizzas at night, because that seems to have made me incredibly fat.. I haven’t been eating at night though for about 1 month, so that’s really good!!!!

2.  Did an environmental econ problem set…kind of tortuous, but it’s better than doing linear algebra or multivariable. 

3. A funny convo to remember:

Dad: I haven’t been able to sleep well lately.
Mom: Really? You snore when you’re on the couch after falling asleep watching TV every single day.
Dad: It happens because the throat *points to throat* gets smaller
Mom: So you’re saying you’re not sleeping when you’re snoring? Do you snore when you’re awake
Dad: ……………………….. Sometimes, it does. *looks to the side and laughs*

4. Made T some elastic bracelets for Valentine’s day

5. Stayed up too late

6. Excited for the week to pass by

7. Really, really, really debating getting the lens this weekend for my camera… I think it would be an AWESOME investment, honestly.

8. First midterm will be on next Thursday. Nervous? Yes, yes, yes. I’m so behind on reading… Good thing all of my classes are manageable though!!

9. Goodnight all. :*

I caved and shopped online last night.

And I got this bikini on sale for $22 as opposed to $70+ that bikinis cost nowadays. Being a girl is so damn expensive!!

ImageI can’t wait to wear it though. I’m thinking of summer every single day… My mom is thinking of either going on a cruise this year or to Taiwan… or JAPAN! I’ve heard that Japan is a LOT of fun, and I loooooove Japanese food. 

Speaking of Japanese food, my parents and I went to The New Ginza in Watertown last night. It was SO. GOOD. I got the Ebi Mango. It was so, so incredibly good. So, if I can go to Tokyo this year, I won’t be so sad about having less time in my new bikini…NOMS

I’m starting to come to terms with my grandpa passing away. I talked about funny memories I had of my grandpa with my parents last night at dinner, and I found that talking openly about it and laughing about the good times made me feel a lot better. It makes me feel like my grandpa isn’t gone forever and that he’s still here… just in a different form. My grandpa used to go to the homeless shelter downtown to eat (he was never homeless, but he was incredibly thrifty). He would tell us how delicious the food at the shelter was… My grandpa was hilarious. Closer to the end of his life, he would give people raising money for hospitals $20 bills at a time. My mom and grandpa would fight about it, but he did it because he had a good heart. I love my grandpa so much, but I have to let go in order to live my life more fully. It hurts my heart to say it, but it’s true..

It’s official: I’m only going to have one class on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and it’s at 1. Yup. That’s right. And it’s an interesting class too! It’s on political thought in early china. It’s a philosophy, history, and theology class all rolled into one, and after today’s class, I’m really excited to do work. I’m having the best semester – I love all of my classes, and I’m motivated to do well in all of them!

Oh, and I slept at around 10:30PM last night, which is really unheard of for me. Several nights during winter break, I was going to sleep around 4AM, because I would procrastinate going to sleep by watching YouTube vlogs and Big Bang Theory reruns… No wonder I felt so shitty over break… Anyway, even though my first class was at 1, I woke up at 10AM and felt like I had slept in! So I had time to do a little reading for psychology. Now that I think about it, I should really get back into using my agenda, because I have a lot of little things to do for each of my classes…

After class, I went to Staples to get college ruled filler paper & a one subject notebook for this one class that I have on MWF. I figure that I’ll use a binder for the four classes I have on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and I’ll use a notebook for my MWF class.

Then I walked over to Coolidge Corner, and as I was walking, I took time to notice everything that I could. I thought about what these streets will look like in 5, 10, 20, 50 years? It’s pretty interesting to think about. I used to think that segways would be a huge thing, but that hasn’t really worked out… at least not yet. I know it’s a bit random, but it’s interesting to see people having conversations on the street and thinking about this one moment in time and how someone in the past or future will have a conversation in that exact same spot. What will they be talking about? And would people in the past be surprised by what these people that I saw were talking about?

…Anyway! I went to the bookstore, and I found a cute mug that was 75% off (Christmas sale!) I think it’s really cute. It makes me happy. 🙂 And it was $3!

Then I went to the Body Shop, and I usually don’t get anything, but they were having a big holiday sale too…. I got this body polish for $5. It smells really gooood.

Ok, I’m going to organize all of the notes that I’ve been taking, order books for my new class, figure out all that I have to read for tomorrow’s classes, do my squats, and drink water!! haha. Bye! xo
