Uno, Dos, Tres

cuatro, cinco, cinco, seis!

I may or may not have been channeling this song just now.

No, but really, I only have 3 things. Random things that I felt compelled to write down here and share. You're welcome.

1) As I was eating dinner last night (a scrumptious veggie, tempeh stir-fry) I had a revelation about a specific eating habit of mine.
Everything was sauteed together to delightful, golden goodness and topped with spicy tomato sauce that I mixed thoroughly through it after this picture was taken. Then, proceeded to eat all the veggies separately, one by one. First the broccoli. Then the asparagus, and so on, leaving the tempeh for last. What's the point in that!? I cook them together but won't eat them together? Not very sensible, Rach. I guess it's because it's so much easier to just throw everything in the pan together than to try and keep things separate. And honestly, I don't care that the different things are touching, I just like to eat them one item at a time. One of my many food-related peculiarities.

2) As I was rearranging my little section of my fridge in an effort to make my groceries all fit, I couldn't help thinking "I can't wait until I graduate and move into my own apartment where I can take over the WHOLE FRIDGE!"

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love living with my 3 roommates, and I am in no rush to jump on the college-graduate train. But, I know there are things that I am definitely looking forward to about living on my own. Mostly, being able to spread out and have a whole space to myself. I'm mean look at what I'm working with:
My roommate, Reb, getting busy on our first night in this apartment. Almost 2 years ago!
No, your eyes don't deceive you. That one wall of cabinets is the entire kitchen. Split between 4 girls, all with vastly different eating habits, who don't share food. Obviously, space is tight, especially in our teeny, janky, fridge. But, we compromise and make it work. In a few months, I'll move into an apartment with this kitchen. Right?

Yea. Right. But a girl can dream...
3) Lastly, I am so freaking tired today!! Since I woke up at 7 this morning, I have been able to think of nothing but how badly I want to crawl back into my bed and sleep till tomorrow. But, I had to move my car this morning (gotta love a college apartment with no parking), so I forced myself to the gym. It's on the way. And I was driving. I had no excuse... except I was tan cansada. Still, I went. And, I struggled to stay awake during went to my first class at 10. I still don't feel like my eyes are completely open.

I should have let myself sleep more, but the threat of a parking ticket was enough to get me out of bed. I'm extra hungy today, too, probably because I am so tired. My body needs the extra fuel to get me through my classes and errands today. I'm hoping I can settle down for a nap after my class gets out at 3, but who knows about that one. I haven't been so good at the napping thing lately. If nothing else, I will try and take a day off from the gym tomorrow morning and sleep in. Mmmmm, bed. I can't wait.

Cheers to Monday!

  1. And all the girlies say I'm pretty fly, for a white guy!! Great song!
    As for the stirfry strangeness, I do the same thing. I actually love doing it that way, and always leave the tempeh/tofu/whatever for last. Strange, we are :)
    Also, try sharing a mini fridge with three girls!!! THATS what I live with. We are constantly going, "is this yours? Can I put this on your shelf?"

    1. Oh I remember those days from when I lived in the dorms. It's funny how many little fights were caused between my roommates and I over something as silly as fridge space. Don't worry, though. It gets better and the fridge grows!
