It’s the final week of classes, the week before the lucky ones among us are privileged enough to be treated with another round of exams.
I just finished and printed my thesis, I’ve been working on some other minor papers and been trying to find some order in the chaos of hand-outs and sheets and sheets of scribbled papers which I call my desk.
I’ve been printing all the documents and articles I refused to print when I needed them, but now I realize I will have to study them anyway.
I went through 2 printer cartridges these last 24 hours.
I’ve been living on coffee, fresh fruit and veggies with dips, snacks and the occasional meal.
Iced Latte à la maison: brew strong coffee, bonus point if it’s cinnamon coffee. Let cool, pour in a cool container to put it in the fridge (empty Arizona tea bottles are very convenient for this purpose). Pour soy milk (or any milk of choice) on top (about 1/3 or 1/2 of the amount of your coffee). Chill in the fridge and serve with ice cubes.
I haven’t attended a yoga class in a week, but I am doing my very best to make it to one tonight. I haven’t been for a run, but I am running late every day.
I bought an amazing book, but I don’t have time to start to read it.
I took a couple of photographs but I don’t have time to blog about them.
Yet I am perfectly content and at ease and not even all that stressed in a way.
I owe meditation and uyai- breathing big time.
And as a thanks for letting me ramble for a bit, I present you my favourite treat of the week:
A good treat requires lots of peanut butter on top, obviously!
Dark chocolate heated with a splash a soy milk in the microwave and stirred until it becomes a medium-runny consistency, sprinkle grated coconut on top. Top with yoghurt. Top with granola and smoked almonds (the smoked almonds or not optional!). Top with melted peanut butter.
The ultimate pacifier in a time of deadlines and paper messes!
