Because I’m in the twilight zone of the semester, and thus perpetually exhausted, I lack the energy to form consecutive cohesive sentences. That’s why this post is kind of all over the place. (Also because I’m currently sitting in a b-o-r-i-n-g class, and navigating on my mini is rather difficult.)
This morning brought another sounded-prettier-than-it-looked parfait.
Layers of lemon yogurt and a crumbled toasted lemon poppy seed muffin, which you can barely see since it got lost in the yogurt. Really — would someone who knows how to construct an aesthetically pleasing parfait enlighten me about the secrets of which I’m evidently unaware?!
These are, I assume, like (a much more expensive version of) Trader Joe’s flattened bananas (which aren’t kosher, an issue which displeases me greatly).
It tastes like banana, but it has the texture of dried apples. Very strange, indeed.
This, however, is totally awesome.
In case you don’t understand what you’re looking at… I bought a box of Kashi GoLean Crisp! today. For 39¢.
That was pretty much the highlight of my day. Which I guess is kind of sad. But there wasn’t much else that qualified as “cheery” … I went to school (always a joy … not), where I realized just exactly how overwhelmed and overworked I am, and where I had to gulp down dinner in pretty much five minutes flat because my professor kept us late again. Besides all that, it was just one of those days where I kind of want to cry because I feel like a lone person on the planet… does that happen to other people?? No? …Guess it’s just me.
And I bought something else today. But I’ve yet to photograph it, or even use it, since I haven’t been home yet… I’m pretty confident that nobody will lose any sleep over wondering what this thing is.
