Good morning, friends!
Last night marked the return of intramural sand volleyball! So awesome. One of the few times that grad school feels just a little bit like undergrad again. Especially since we were playing what looked like freshman.
The good news is that we had a blast playing for about 45 minutes — the bad news is that our entire team showed up 5 minutes late… which is apparently grounds for forfeiting. Who knew intramural sports were so hardcore? Next time, we’ll be there early. Either way — we had a great time. Our game was at 6 p.m. and the weather was absolutely perfect for being outside!
I got home around 7:15 starving for dinner, so I walked over to the Weaver Street co-op and treated myself to dinner at their hot bar.
I got some brown rice and this amazing chana masala (the chickpeas) dish they have a lot that I love — perfect amount of spiciness. I also got some random beef tomato thing that sounded good, some collard greens and lemony cauliflower, and a few cold veggies that looked good to munch on from the salad bar.
For dessert, I enjoyed some juicy strawberries.
On the agenda for today is a serious biochem studying throw down with my classmate Maria (remember her?) — we have our third exam tomorrow. We will probably try to get some more comprehensive exam studying in there, too. I can’t believe they are next Friday — gah!
In anticipation of sitting down and studying all day (I seriously find sitting still to be the hardest part of studying — which is why I love walking with flashcards/notes), I went for a nice 2.2 mile walk this morning around my neighborhood. It was stunning out this morning and a pleasure to be out enjoying the fresh air.
Time to get organized and head out to meet Maria! Happy Wednesday, friends.
