I hate the way my photos turn out in this student union!! It’s SO dark in here and the food looks so bland! But it tasted great 🙂
I got the BEST NEWS in an email this morning from my Chemistry professor:
“If your performance on test 3 is as stellar as your record has been, you will be exempt from the final.”
I mean, seriously, can you get better news that that!? Cumulative finals are the thing I hate most about academics. I have (had) 3 this semester:
Cultural Foods, which should be relatively easy and shouldn’t take more than an afternoon of studying
Medical Terminology, which is a pass/fail course and I’ve got a thick stack of flashcards from the semester so it shouldn’t take me long to review them all (I’m a whiz at memorizing flashcards)
Chemistry. Hard. Long. Lots of studying. GONE!!!
So for lunch today I had a Smoked Salmon Quesadilla. 2 oz of smoked salmon, a laughing cow cheese as my “cream cheese ” binder, lots of dried dill between two TJ’s wheat flour tortillas (not the healthiest choice TJ’s offers, but the texture of these looked the doughiest and the best, so I got them. They’re not the worst either.)
Along with mango (from last night’s video!) and Crudités with 2 tbsp of hummus my mother in law made.
And an apple pie yogurt (1/4 cup apple sauce mixed with Fage (really TJ’s brand greek yogurt) and cinnamon)
All together with hot tea (which I needed today because it’s freezing out there!) for 500 kcal, 11 grams fiber and 37 grams protein (Greek yogurt is really high in protein!)
I need a hot water refill before I can walk back across campus for lab! Today is our last Physio lab of the semester!! Next week we have our third exam and then I’m done! I couldn’t be happier – I am ready for summer! I think my brain has already started shutting down, which is bad because I have 3 big tests, 3 quizzes and a presentation along with my finals to do before I can celebrate!
Speaking of summer, my life is about to get really crazy in a good way. Here are my upcoming weekends:
