Interesting Week

This past week has been interesting. Not much went on, but an insight for the rest of the semester was given. I told my friends jokingly that they will not see me till after Christmas Break. I am going to try and stay positive for the rest of the semester and stay motivated, but at times that may be hard.

Do not worry, I still had some relaxing moments here and there. One thing that happened that made laugh was a little situation that I ran into with a toad. This may sound weird and dumb, but it made me laugh when I really needed it. On Thursday, November 5, I ran across a toad that was sitting on top of my bike lock chain. He looked all comfy on it, but I had to move him off so I could get to class on time. I was able to get the lock off and thought that he would hop off while doing that. He did not so I took one of the ends of my chain and gently tapped him from behind to encourage him to get off. Well, I will tell you this, that toad looked at me and slowly got off my chain and went all pouty on me. I have never seen so much sass and attitude from a toad. I mean just look at his little sour face. That toad has not come back since. Hopefully, he found a better place to relax.

That same Thursday, I cooked a delicious meal for a few friends and me. It was buffalo chicken tater tot casserole. I am really impressed with myself that I made the dish and that I made it in college. All my friends really enjoyed, and there were hardly any leftovers. I am making sure to save the recipe for the future.

Over the weekend, I went home for a day with my boyfriend and visited my grandparents. My grandparents took us to this little diner that was attached to a car wash. The food was surprisingly really delicious. We had fun hanging out with my grandparents. It was also good to catch up with the family. I know I will see them over Thanksgiving Break, but I am really close to my family, so I love seeing them whenever I can. 

The rest of this month and semester are going to get rally crazy, but I am ready for it...I think.

  1. Jessica - I swear I saw that same toad! I do not know where your bike was but when I took out the trash I must have either saw that same toad or its bother or sister. I am not going to lie, I had nothing better to do so I stayed for a second and had a nice little conversation with it since I missed my pets so badly. Anyways, I completely agree that the rest of this month is going to get really crazy. I feel like everyday a new professor is surprising me with a new project or paper that has to be done as soon as possible. +It is all about organizing your time to get through these harder times that is for sure...and it could not hurt to get a few massages from the boyfriend as well. Keep it up and good luck with this next month.
