First off, THANK YOU everyone again for the wonderful birthday wishes! It was a low-key day, but I loved it. My oldest brother called me in the evening, and it was wonderful to chat with him. We’re planning a brother-sister get-together as soon as my workload calms down! :)
On that note, my “busiest week of college to date” is slowly lessening in intensity as I get through the mega-list of exams. This morning I had an Environmental Geology exam that I think went decently well. Sometimes it’s tough to know how you did on an exam right after taking it, and that’s how I felt with this one. So we’ll just have to wait and see!
Before my exam, I had a breakfast of a bowl of Trader Joe’s Organic Golden Flax cereal topped with unsweetened almond milk with an organic banana on the side.
This was the first time I tried this cereal, and I must say that I really like it! It seems to hold me over quite well too, which is always a bonus for a hectic college student’s life. 🙂
After breakfast, I taught an 8am Yoga class at the studio before heading out to my exam in the Geology building WAYYYYYY the heck out in the middle of nowhere on campus. Seriously, the UW Madison campus IS the city of Madison. I walk about 4 miles alone just getting to my classes! I actually don’t mind it at all when the weather is nice, but when today’s temperatures are like this (the bottom one is outside)…
… I’d rather the building be a bit closer.
This afternoon I had a typical snack: Synergy, organic kiwi, organic blackberries, and a Fage 0% Greek yogurt.
It’s been way too long since I’ve had blackberries. SO good!
I’m taking an Intro to Buddhism class this semester, and this afternoon we literally meditated the entire class (1 hour and 15 minutes). A certified meditation teacher came in and led the mediation, so it was actually a neat experience. Although I’m a Yoga practitioner, I don’t normally meditate! It was great to get a peek into another aspect of the practice. Have you done any meditation before… on your own or with an instructor?
Tonight is another low-key evening… I’m heading to a Power Yoga class and hoping to get some more studying done! I love Thursdays because we all know tomorrow is FRIIIIIDAYYYY! 😀
