Tea season is upon us and I’m very happy about this, however I don’t know why I don’t just have it frequently year around. I seem to associate it more during the colder seasons.
When my boyfriend and I started dating he wasn’t a big tea fan and now he has more tea than I do. Green tea is his favorite, helps him focus and helps relax him. I do like green tea but it tends to give me reflux, so I like to stick to tea that has very little caffeine.
However the first cup of tea I ever had was Earl Grey and it’s a staple for me. It tastes, to me, exactly what I would expect for tea. It has the perfect balance between bitter and sweet.
It’s my home away from home tea, my comfort zone. I haven’t had it in forever but today I got it and was reminded why it’s always been my favorite.
I think it’s time to restock my supply this fall.
Been trying to keep up with my school work lately and let me tell you, it’s no cake walk.
I have about equal amount of work for both of my classes and I can’t figure out how to balance it all out.
Not to mention I have the attention of a goldfish. I can’t really create a study area for myself that doesn’t drown me in distractions.
However twice now I’ve done my homework while being with a friend or my boyfriend and manage to accomplish more work than I would by myself.
I definitely work better with someone with me than alone!
I think I could go all year without going on for a cut for my hair. I’m happy to let that mane grow out and not worry about it.
My eyebrows are another story.
I never used to be high maintenance about my looks at all. I was never a big makeup person, I liked it and played around with it but I was never consistent, everyday with wearing it.
This included my eyebrows, I didn’t even know I had bushy eyebrows, I just didn’t care.
This all changed after I met my now hair dresser.
To say she’s a miracle worker is an understatement. My boyfriend even goes to her which is really saying something. She just gets hair and hair gets her.
So it’s been a little over two months closing in on three months since I’ve had mine done and I felt like I haven’t showered in months.
I could just feeeel how much eyebrow I had going on, so getting them done today was probably the best feeling in the world.
Eyebrow game is a real thing people.
I’m a pretty sensitive person, and whether I like to believe it or not, I do care what people think.
I desire the respect of my teammates and I’m consistently concerned if I’m doing enough for my boyfriend and friends.
However I also tend to react off of my emotions, whether it’s at the refs for not calling a penalty on a player or calling a penalty on me, or it’s when someone points out my mistakes and corrects them for me.
However today, I got frustrated with my teacher and in class tutor. Not because they were helping me but because I hadn’t asked for help (and I didn’t need it) and they decided to butt in anyways.
It usually takes me after the fact for me to realize what my best approach or wording should have been.
I don’t think I did too bad this time but I was definitely peeved for the rest of class and I have a feeling that tutor won’t approach me unless asked for again.
I had made my point pretty clear.
It wasn’t my intention to burn that bridge (even singed it a little), but it was all unwelcoming and a bit overwhelming when they are both standing on either side of me hovering over my shoulder as I sit there and there hands are all over my work.
I wanted to explode but I….”politely” asked to be left alone and that I hadn’t asked for the help.
It turns out that my original answer was correct and the tutor was incorrect.
So I’ll ask the teacher if I need help, I didn’t have much confidence in the tutor regardless.
Today I meal prepped for my week and it felt GREAT :). I haven’t really cooked for myself in what feels like months and I finally got the motivation going again.
Breakfast is my hardest meal to prep, I don’t always know if I’m up for eating right away (throw away the “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” quote, it’s not true) and if I am, how much of a hurry am in already and what do I want?
I started the year eating the same thing every single morning for at least 4-5 months. It was yogurt, fruit and almonds.
Quick and simple and the almonds could be to-go. I got bored of it and stopped eating breakfast.
However I don’t know what I ever want now so I keep some quick options available but I don’t prep it.
This leaves me lunch, and, to me, lunch is the most important meal of the day. It’s my fuel for the rest of the day, it’s how I keep my energy going and my mentality positive (the hanger is real everybody).
So I saw this video of meal prep ideas on Facebook and instantly wanted it.
Anyone else obsessed with those Tasty food videos?
Here’s the link ^
So I did this meal but instead of baking the chicken and veggies I grilled them! It came out so good and I got four days worth of meals plus a small meal for my post practice munchies. I feel ready for this week and it feels good. Plus I got to spend time outside!
My life is back in full swing after a terrible, messy, problem filled summer.
But school is back, derby is rolling and work is busy. I’m getting my groove back into things and yet I still feel stuck in summer.
That’s okay though because I know despite everything that happened I only have better things to look forward to and I like those odds.
My biggest love/hate relationship is starting up again in about 3 weeks and I’m excited :).
I love school! I hate the act of it but I love the discipline it teaches me and the relationships I build I gain whether from my peers or teachers, even other faculties not apart of my classes.
My college is welcoming and not intimidating at all, so I don’t ever feel over my head being there and managing my time there is easy to schedule and fluctuate with.
I’m going to school for Business Administration, I’m a part time student and I’ve been going for the longest I’ve gone to college so far, I’m on my 5th semester and still have a lot of school ahead of me.
This semester I’m taking my first business class, Marketing 101 I believe is the actual name of it. I’m excited to write a post about it because I finally have all the materials available to me so it finally feels real. Just need two more things that I’m getting this week.
The one thing I wish I could do that’s pretty unnecessary is school shopping. I love new pens and pencils and binders and folders. Plus stickers and post it notes and planners and HIGHLIGHTERS. I love highlighters.
I love back to school time!
Any good suggestions and tips for college you can give?
