Thank God it is Friday! I am so happy to have a free weekend where I can get some school/house work done. It feels great to check things off my list.
Before I share with you some lighter details from this past week, I have to share some heavier thoughts: My heart is really hurting today. I am so distraught over the shooting in Oregon. How many of these mass shooting will we have to hear about in our lifetime? How can we feel safe if we can’t feel safe in our schools? I am just so sad for the families and friends of the victims. I believe in prayer and I believe in the sovereignty of God. But I also believe in taking action when a system is broken.
And now that there is no real good way to segue into the rest of my post, I will just say “onto lighter, less significant, small details of my life”:
-My pup is CRAZY. She loves to jump on you, gnaw on you, and talk to you. She has an insane amount of energy. However, my favorite Jules is the one pictured below. The calm, sleepy Jules who just wants to sit and cuddle up beside you.
-I had a really good experience giving blood this week. I was so proud because my hemoglobin was really good. I’ve been turned down before because it was too low, so I am always nervous before they check it. I credit the steak I ate on Sunday and all the spinach I’ve been eating lately. Low hemoglobin will make you feel awful- so eat up those iron sources!
-Isn’t this the cutest cup? My good friend gave it to me for my birthday and I feel happier just holding it. The weather here has been devoid of sunshine, so it is nice to have something to brighten things up a little.
-My breakfast yesterday morning was amazing: overnight oats in a jar. I don’t really eat overnight oats too often, but if I have an almost empty jar, you better believe I am going to enjoy some. I worked out prior to this breakfast so I added protein powder to my usual oats, almond milk, and chia seeds.
-I also had my first apple in a long time. They tend to give me stomach troubles, but with all the delicious apple recipes popping up, I couldn’t resist having one. I haven’t detected any problems, but these apples are a little on the softer side, so I think they are easier to digest. They were great on top of a salad!
It was a great week overall, but man did it go by fast! This has been a weird semester of not knowing if I should be busy or not. I have vague deadlines which kind of stresses me out but also makes me the queen procrastination. Wish me luck for a productive weekend!
What was your favorite event of the week?
Looking forward to anything this weekend?
