Here’s a typical school day!
7:00: wake up, hit snooze, wake up again, get out of bed. Wash my face, brush teeth, and wash dishes left over from last night.
Make lunch – peanut butter and raspberry jam sandwich, almond butter with banana, and water.
Eat my morning oatmeal: pumpkin oats this time, with a crumbled almond blueberry cake and tons of almond butter.
It’s not too cold by the time I walk to school. My classes start at either 8:30 or 9:30, so I typically leave the house at around 8:00 or 9:00. Campus looks so nice when it’s all frosty!
Labs, notes, and worksheets to practice.
After class, my friends and I often get together to study. This board in an empty classroom quickly became covered in our Biochemistry notes. We had our midterm a couple days ago, and all of the glycolysis (making energy) and gluconeogenesis (making sugar) pathways were difficult to memorize.
Dinner around 7:00 was leftover sweet potato chili that I burned in my pot, brown rice, and some grated cheddar cheese. Plus a side of more glycolysis.
Dessert came soon after: peanut butter on a chocolate-banana brownie cake square. I shared the recipe last time! It’s a vegan recipe and absolutely amazing.
Sometimes I have to prepare for upcoming interviews. I had one on Thursday for a senior home with several locations across Ontario. The job search is going pretty well, and I’ll have more details on that in a future post! For this interview, I prepared by printing out some of the posters that I created for a senior home volunteer position that I held over the summer.
And then I check out some more recipes and make some modifications (blue). You’ll see these recipes soon – I can’t wait!
And that’s it! Normally I’m off to bed at around 11:30, depending on whether or not I have to wake up early the next day.
