You know what feels weird?
Having NO school work to be doing.
You know what feels weirder?
Having NO school work to be doing ever again.
That is right, I am finally done with grad school! Although the dietetic internship in the fall will require some extra work, it won’t be graded or be the same nature of work that school is. No more 15 page research papers or exams to study for (except the big RD one).
Today is Wednesday, so I am sharing my eats. These are from Monday, which was the day of my last exam! Thanks for the link-up, guys!
Today’s theme is state of being. I do my best to present, so I will often consider what emotions I am experience or how my body physically feels. The future is important to consider, but the present should not forsaken.
When Obi-Wan said to Qui-Gon Jinn, “Yoda says I should be mindful of the future”, Qui-Gon Jinn replied “but not at the expense of the moment.” May the Fourth be with you.
Breakfast: everything bagel with Neufchâtel cheese, dark chocolate and coffee x 2.5
State of being: calm, mildly distracted. I woke up early to study for my last exam. I told myself that I needed to focus just enough to get through this one last test. Reading blogs seemed equally pressing, however. 😉
Snack: (unpictured) orange plus a few almonds
State of being: shaky! I do believe that .5 extra cup of coffee put me over the edge!! I start to do things like dishes and pack lunches for Terry and I to shake some of the energy out.
Lunch: Peanut butter and banana, a salad with spinach, fresh corn, strawberries, carrots, and balsamic vinaigrette, and a tea.
State of being: freaking ecstatic! I flew through my last exam, handed it in, went straight to the library from some pleasures reads (picked out three books), and then found a shady spot for a picnic. This picture is how I envision many summer days for me!
Snack: Triscuits, peanuts, & raisins
State of being: restful. I’m think about how little I have to do. The summer is full of possibilities.
Samples of these sweet gifts from my friend Emily. Food surprises are the best kind of surprises.
State of being: so grateful. I’ve made so many wonderful connections and relationships over the last year.
Dinner: Spinach & feta chicken sausage, broccoli, baked sweet potato “fries”, plus ketchup and mustard
State of being: all of a sudden exhausted! Once I fixed dinner, I felt physically drained. As I ate dinner, I let Terry do most of the talking. The food was delicious, and I was very hungry. Terry is not much of a sweet potato fan, but he enjoyed these with salt & garlic powder.
Following dinner we went for a run, during which Terry challenged himself to complete two miles. I was proud of his endurance!
Dessert: frozen yogurt- chocolate + cookies n’ cream plus a few toppings.
So you tell me-
What is your current state of being?
