This past week/weekend was hard. Not so much eating wise, although that does suffer when I'm stressed, but school was seriously kicking my you-know-what. Monday, I had the hardest midterm I've ever had and I'm not being dramatic either. Nothing that the instructor said was going to be on the test was on there and it was a totally different style then the quiz we'd had earlier in the semester. Everyone in the class was mad about it, so I guess that's sort of good - at least it wasn't just me! I cried after that one though.
And today, I had another midterm with the same instructor (she teaches two classes - the joys of going to a small, private grad school!). It was almost as hard. Plus we've been having some financial problems in my family and my mom has been really stressed and depressed which always makes ME stressed and depressed. So, yeah...I've shed a few tears.
Speaking of which, I do tend to cry easily. Usually only when I'm by myself, but I probably cry a few times a month, at least. I'm not really sure if its good or bad or what - it's just me. Sometimes I just feel like I HAVE to cry, you know? Sometimes its just spontaneous and sometimes its in response to the news or a song or even a music video (I know kinda cheesy...)
On a cheerier subject I've had many good things to eat this week. :) I've been restricting a little from stress and all that junk, but I've still managed to have some tasty treats:
As you can see, my sister and I like to experiment with international cuisines. It's fun to try different dishes and get ideas to incorporate into everyday meals!
I think I told a few of you that I was going to make overnight oats. Well, I never got around to it because of the above craziness, but I AM making it tonight! Crossing my fingers that it works!
Take care you guys. "Knowing" all of you makes watching the world news seem more important to me because I know alot of you are directly dealing with some of the stuff that's happening. Reading Ashley's and Katy's blogs make what I see on TV more relevant and real. I'm thinking of and praying for all of you!
Questions: Do you cry easily? What is your favorite type of cuisine?
