March 29, 2010 lazy, lazy monday.
currently listening to the led zeppelin station on pandora (gasp! not the beatles?! no worries, they come up on this station a whole lot ;)) and eating a yummy dinner (salad consisting of spinach, a farmer’s market tomato, half an avocado, and cumin/garlic roasted chick peas i made the other night! a little olive oil and balsamic as a dressing and this salad iiiiiis perfection right meow!). it’s been an interesting, hazy, slow day.
currently listening to the led zeppelin station on pandora (gasp! not the beatles?! no worries, they come up on this station a whole lot ;)) and eating a yummy dinner (salad consisting of spinach, a farmer’s market tomato, half an avocado, and cumin/garlic roasted chick peas i made the other night! a little olive oil and balsamic as a dressing and this salad iiiiiis perfection right meow!). it’s been an interesting, hazy, slow day. this past weekend was gooooorgeous. talk about blue skies and all kinds of warm sunshine. some great outside running was had fooor sure. so, naturally, when i woke up this morning i was expecting to peek through my blinds and see that sunshine i was looking for. but no. there was no sunshine. in fact, there was no sun. it was raining! big bummer. first bummer of the day!
second? i usually walk to school but because of the rain i had to drive my car. so i opted out of gyming it up on campus and instead did a 20 minute power vinyasa flow and then a 30 minute yoga with weights. whooooa hellooo difficult. it felt awesome though since yesterday was my four mile run. that may not seem like a lot for some people but i’m building up for my first ever 10k and pounding out four milers is a new thing for me. i’m loving it! i love the feeling of getting stronger, mentally and physically. but the yoga stretched out my legs. so. awesome. gotta love yoga! after that i made a maple glazed tempeh, spinach, pita sandwich. SO. GOOD. only my second time having tempeh, too. i made some lemony-pepper the day before. i might be hooked. plus, it’s 20g protein per serving. perfect after workout foooods.
but awesome lunch followed awesomely BORING shakespeare class. uhg. i know it’s like, required to love shakespeare when you’re an english major but bleh, it’s not for me. i like romeo and juliet and othello’s okay and i can appreciate how effing smart the guy was in terms of word play and satire and writing in general but. i just.don’t.understand.it. i sparknotes-ed it, i’m almost ashamed to say! but no one gets everything, right? right. so after class i came home to spend like…an hour with candace (my roommate!) before she peaced out.
oh yeah, third bummer? candace just left for two weeks! spring break basically starts this week (thank you ceasar chavez! si se puede!) so a lot of people just blew off the monday and tuesday classes. plus some teachers furloughed class anyway. (what’s a furlough you ask? well, since the state of california hates the public education system and gives state colleges no money, my college simply cannot afford to pay teachers and forced them to take a 10% pay cut meaning, in short, less classes to be taught! teachers have to take 9 days off a semester from teaching. it’s mandatory. like law status. i sure like using parentheses today!) i’m officially starting spring break tomorrow at 8 after my screen writing class. which reminds me…i need to get crackin’ on reading the first half of the little miss sunshine screenplay! fun homework, if you ask me.
any ideas for fun things to do over spring break, by the way? i think i’ve got a road trip or two planned (look out portland & seattle!) but i’ve still got plenty of down time.
