Well it's the start of week 2 and I'm pretty sure I'm the only female in all of my classes. I'm still deciding if I care, but really I'm leaning towards not caring. The only competition at this point is with myself.
Lessons learned and things to remember throughout the rest of this school year:
* Stop over thinking everything. I tend to do this in life as well. Some things are really, that simple. I'm working on it. I spent the entire weekend, working and stressing over an in-class assignment that was not only simpler then I thought, but over and done with in 3 minutes. Yeah, grey hairs for nothing.
* Ask for help. I have been doing this, but not enough. Who cares what other people think. I'm here to learn and that involves a lot of questions. If I don't understand what is being taught or I'm lost in the middle of a lesson, I'm doing myself no favours by sitting there and saying nada.
* Realise that I'm not the only one who is lost or doesn't understand what is being taught.
* Lastly, have a nap on the weekend. At least one. I don't remember the last time that I had one. I don't have any kids to run after, so why not! Have a great Tuesday & if your neck of the woods is experiencing another cold snap, stay warm!
Till next time,
And I survived. Not that I thought I wouldn't but, I forgot how tiring it is to listen to other people lecture for hours on end. I know it will get better after all of my classes are done with the introductory lessons. I just want to start doing things. That always makes the classes fly by.
I did learn not to pack sandwiches with too many vegetables or mayo. The bread just does not hold up. Soggy is not appetizing. I also put too much crap in my carry-on bag. I'm not renting a locker, so I need to lighten my load.
Waking up a little earlier, 4 out of 5 days, is not bad but I still need to time my get-out-of-the-house routine a little better. I was scrambling and getting a little crabby. Here's to hoping today and the remainder of the week go well.
Kai the cat was apparently not impressed with my absence but she'll get use to it soon enough, I hope.
Trying a twist to my occasional oatmeal this morning. Saw this on The Chew. It was for chocolate oatmeal. My variation was: 2/3 c almond milk; 1/3 c. old fashioned oats; pinch of salt; 1 tbsp. dried currents/dried cranberries; 4 chopped raw almonds; 1 tbsp. hemp seed; 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup after the first taste. It needed a little bit of sweet because the cocoa powder made everything a little bitter for my palate. Heated almond milk, then added ingredients. Cooked for 1 minute 30 seconds. Added last 4 ingredients after oatmeal was in bowl. Pretty good. Great if you have the time and if your having a morning chocolate craving. It happens! I give it a 4/5. Have a great Tuesday!
Till next time,
