Because All Soon-To-Be Professional Engineers Need Good Luck

...and a full belly of turkey meatloaf, garlic mashed potatoes, and sauteed kale/spinach!

Good luck, Michael!

Hocus Pocus

So, clearly school has consumed my life.  There is just so much to do and so little time.  As an assignment for my Computers in Nutrition Education class, I have been working on designing a website about healthy eating and grocery shopping. Let me tell you--when there are outdated instructions on making the website, a list of very specific things to include in your website, and it is not something you are doing by choice, it isn't very fun. In fact, it's been quite a headache.

I also got another one of my internship placements this week.  I was placed in one of my first choices--a public school district pretty close by.  I think I will be working at both the middle school and the high school.  I will be doing an 18 hour orientation at the facility starting in November, and then next year, I will spend 7 weeks interning there.

Anyways, what else has been going on in my life?  I had a nice weekend.  I did some work, ate some pumpkin oatmeal, babysat for my favorite fur niece, Pixie, went to a nice 1.5 anniversary dinner, and picked some delicious apples. Not too shabby!

This weekend, Mike and I are headed to a wedding in CT. The wedding circuit never seems to stop for us.  I was just emailing with one of my friends today and she mentioned that she and her husband don't have any weddings to go to yet for next year. This made me realize that we already have 3 to go to next year! Crazy!

Tonight I made a sort of random but yummy dinner.  I had a baked sweet potato with pesto tofu pasta.  I'm pretty sure anything covered in pesto is delicious.

Okay, time to get some more work done and then probably watch Hocus Pocus! I love that movie.  It brings me back to my youth!

Life is a Whirlwind

Being super busy is definitely making these weeks fly by!  My weeks are jam-packed with school, work, homework, and internships.  I feel like every moment of every day is scheduled...and it has to be that way for me to accomplish anything for school and still work to make the dollas dollas.

This week started off with my killer long Monday (on campus from 10:30am-9:30pm).  Tuesday, I had an exam in Foodservice, then my Intro to Nutrition Practice class.  I really like Intro.  I really wish that I had more time outside of class to spend on it! Yesterday and today I worked all the live long day. And now, I'm working on my study guide for Nutritional Biochem.  It is currently 17 pages and I still have 4 topics to cover. Joy. Tomorrow starts my first mini internship and then I have my Intro class.  The internship involves shadowing an RD and then doing some nutritional interviewing myself.  I'm looking forward to it! As for this weekend, study study study.  Two big exams next week! Oy vey.

Here are some pictures from the past week or so:

Salmon, roasted broccoli, and roasted rosemary potatoes.
Fall table!

Tilapia parmigiana, brown rice, steamed garlicky kale.

Fall flowers. Mike brought these home the other night along with mini chocolate tarts, vanilla ice cream, and blueberry almond granola. I had a little "mishap" that involved accidentally deleting a huge document filled with my Nutritonal Biochem notes. He knows all the things that make me happy.

Oh yeah, and Greys is on in just over an hour! Night!
