Yes, today is my 19th Birthday! 😀
This is also the busiest week of my college life as of yet. I have 1 exam tomorrow, 2 exams on Monday, and a 10-page essay due on Tuesday. Somehow Birthday + Insane College Workload don’t fit together all that well. 😉
That said, I’ve never been one to have big parties or hit the town all night, so I’m pretty satisfied with laying low-key and having a relaxing, productive birthday. A friend texted me last night and is taking me out to get my version of a “
birthday cake” – Starbucks – this afternoon, so it will be great just to catch up with him and take my mind off the stress of school!
My mom also sent me a beautiful card in the mail from her and my dad:
With lottery cards – my mom’s usual card stuffer. 😉
I actually won $2 on one of the cards!!! Birthday luck I suppose! 🙂
Now backing up to Yesterday…
Breakfast – Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs topped with organic raw sunflower seeds and organic almond milk with an organic banana on the side.
It was DOWN POURING all day, and of course I don’t own a umbrella. Therefore, walking 2 miles to my Geology class and 2 miles back left me DRIPPING wet! I promptly went to Walgreens and amended my lack of umbrella after learning my lesson the hard way. 😉
Pre-afternoon classes snack: Organic kiwi, organic pear, Trader Joe’s organic Greek yogurt, and a Gingerade Kombucha.
Post-classes COLORFUL snack: Organic Blueberries, Organic baby carrots, Trader Joe’s Edamame, and a glass of unsweetened almond milk.
Have a fabulous Wednesday (and my Birthday ;)) everyone!!!
Question: Are you a “big party” type when it comes to birthdays?

I woke up to POURING rain, thunder, lightning, and the whole stormy works this morning. That said, I’ll take rain storms any day over snow storms!
I started out my morning with a bowl of Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs topped with organic raw sunflower seeds and almond milk, with an organic banana on the side.
The bananas are obviously slightly outdated, but I luckily stocked up yesterday.
I had another 1/5 of my essay I wanted to get written this morning, and I knew I’d need my morning cup of coffee to get me through. Hence, a 1-mile walk in a rainstorm to get to Starbucks and back. A college girl needs her caffeine! 😉
The results of my trip…
But I did get my coffee!!! 😀
Only a bit of waterworks made its way onto the cup.
TOTALLY worth it as I completed the 1/5 of my 10-page essay I set out to do!
I’m now making a trip to Trader Joe’s! Grocery Shopping = The best way to avoid dismal weather blues! 🙂
What do you like to do on a rainy day?
