Meal Prep – Crying – 30/30

I’ve decided to start meal prepping for both health and convenience reasons. I’ve never been one to limit what I eat. In fact, I exercise specifically so that I could eat whatever I want. However, nowadays, I find that I’m just much too busy. More often than not, I end up eating ramen instead of actual food which is so bad. I figure I might as well try out meal prepping before I head off to college. This week I plan on doing caesar salads. They’re not the most nutritious of salads, but they’re pretty accessible. Although I’m not setting up a budget, I’m not trying to burn a hole through my wallet either. I’m excited to start doing this. It would be nice to come home and have a meal 75% prepared and waiting for me.

One of my most recent dreams took place at the last day of school. I suppose for me, that would be graduation. For some reason, I kept crying. And I couldn’t stop crying. I seriously hope that actual graduation won’t be nearly as sad because it would suck to have mascara running down my face and have makeup tinting my white dress in photos.

Another app I’ve been getting back into is 30/30. It’s a timer app but I don’t usually use it for that function. Instead, I use it as if it were an alternating to-do list. I like this app specifically because you can manipulate your to-dos very easily. It’s simple enough to use and I feel that it makes me very productive. It creates a similar satisfaction to checking off to-dos in an agenda.




College – Chocolate – Trivia Crack

College is a super exciting time. There’s the new environment, the new community, the new sense of freedom in its purest form. People get so comfortable in high school. Seniors have gotten to know of everyone and have gotten to decide who to surround themselves with. College however means that its’ time to start the process over again. Once again, vulnerability seeps through. Stories and explanations have to be told over and over again. Personally, I love this part. It’s great meeting new people because there’s limitless topics to breech. I joined a college group chat recently and initially, I really liked the friendly environment. The chat really gave me an idea of what my prospective classmates could be like. All was going to well when suddenly, a group of boys joined the chat and starting saying rude and ignorant things. Suddenly, I didn’t feel like the college was right for me. I don’t want to invest my education in a place where there are bullies and headstrong people. It’s certainly no way to make a first-impression. I couldn’t imagine speaking to these people much less partner with them in projects. Although I’m well aware that there will be these types of people on every campus. I still feel and overwhelming aura of disrespect coming from the prospects of this school. For this reason, it’s dropping down on my college list. Outside of financials and education, environment is extremely important. I want a school that will make me feel comfortable and happy.

Chocolate is so good. Funny thing is, I never crave it until after the first bite. It’s a blessing and a curse because once I start, it’s pretty hard to stop. As the creamy texture melts in my house, I always will it to stay for longer. But I guess that’s part of chocolate’s appeal. It plays hard to get by leaving its sweet dancers on our tongue long after they leave.

Trivia crack was super popular 2 years ago. I’ve recently rediscovered it and I am once again obsessed with it. Besides the wonderful feeling of winning, I love how this game allows people to learn quick interesting facts. If a kid had to play a game, I would certainly stick this in their hands. However, it can be quite addicting. With limited lives, you’ll feel the longing for the clicking sound of the spinning wheel in no time.




Car Scratched – Resolutions – Grandma’s Tattoo

I had a dream that some no-good delinquent scratched my car, all the way around. My freshly-painted perfect baby. I didn’t wake up but my heart was beating so fast with fury. I think if I ever witnessed someone keying a car, I would fight them mercilessly. It doesn’t even have to be my car. Because how can someone be so cruel, heartless, and horrible? The car is innocent. No matter what horrible deeds I may have done to you, my car does not deserve the punishment. I think that was actually one of the worst nightmares I’ve ever had.

It’s the New Year and I’m super excited because it’s my grad year. This moment has been long awaited. Every year I have a few resolutions that I don’t exactly hold myself accountable for which is really bad. My problem is that I don’t write it down. But also, I don’t want to feel the defeat and sadness, others feel when they fall behind and quit on their goals. Instead, I’ve opted for a detailed Things To Do list. I’ve mainly used it to manage my upcoming college responsibilities but it’s made me feel so organized! I love making calendars which makes sense because they’re kind of like resolutions but with instant gratification. One of my goals is to actually keep a journal. I don’t call it a daily journal because that is way too much pressure for me. Instead, it’s more like a special memory holder. Only the important memories go in there. Going along with that theme, I’ve also gotten an app that keeps track of photos that I take. I take a photo everyday that I feel summarizes my day. I think it would be cool to look back on.

I had another dream that my grandma got a back tattoo. It was no delicate butterfly either. It was huge: so big that it took up her entire back. In my dream, I was like, “Grandma!” If you knew my grandma, you would be just as shocked. She’s pretty conservative. She didn’t exactly jump with excitement at my cartilage piercing. She would probably flip out if I ever got a tattoo. I thought this dream was super funny though. It changed my perspective a little bit. I love dreaming. If I dream, I know that I’m going to sleep restfully. I’m trying to document my dreams so that I could remember them because they can be so wildly creative and impressive. And sometimes, I’m a little psychic so… 😉

Plans – Procrastinating – Cold

I really like making plans. I love calendars and agendas and to-do lists because they make me feel like an organized person. However, acting on my plans is another story. In the end, I always seem to leave things to the last minute. I always wish I was more proactive about important things. I guess you could say it’s one of my resolutions. As I’m sitting in bed on January 1st, watching MTV, I wish I was working on homework that’s due in less than a week. Unfortunately for me, the illusion of working hard and doing work is enough for my brain to laze about.

I’m always in a deep slump towards the end of winter break. I feel sluggish and unproductive. I wish I could’ve done all the things that I said I was going to do before break but once again, the evil little pink monster (procrastination) caught up with me. I’ve found that if I ever just let myself slip a little bit, get a tiny break, my brain ends up thinking it’s on a week long holiday.

One of the things that definitely contributes to my lazy attitude is the weather. It’s winter here. It’s cold. I hate the cold. I feel like I don’t want  to ever get out of bed because I feel like I’m going to get sick. Cold is one of my least favorite feelings. I’d rather be sweating than shivering. And the cold doesn’t just limit me outside. I also don’t want to go downstairs because it’s kind of chilly down there too. And I can’t do much without throwing on a robe, sweatpants, and slippers.
