I might have started a new semester last month, but now I’m back into the swing of things. This month I started research for a paper I’m writing for an upcoming symposium. So far, so good! Also, I booked a ticket to go to Hawaii over Spring Break. I’ve been hitting it hard at the gym in preparation. Slowly, my plans are coming together for the summer. Between taking classes and a possible volunteer opportunity, the summer of 2018 will be insane (in a good way). Life is good right now.
As healthy as I try to be, I sometimes let myself indulge in my cravings. At the beginning of the month, I was craving Velveeta’s white cheese mac and cheese. They didn’t have that in the store, so I grabbed this. So glad I did. My roommate showed me a hack to make this in the microwave, but still, it’s best made on the stove top. For something as unhealthy as mac and cheese, I was surprised that it had 10 grams of protein in a serving. It doesn’t have a lot of weird ingredients that normally give it a longer shelf life.
The second wave of winter just hit Kansas, so it was nice having this hoodie around to put on. You never see this shade of blue on hoodies. I think what’s interesting about this is that it has side slits on it. There is no way I paid $60 for this. I bought mine at my local Sam’s Club for less than $30.
American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace
Last month, the new season of American Crime Story premiered. I was hooked from episode one; the new cast is outstanding. Now halfway through the season, I can say during next award season this show will win BIG. I’m expecting that this show will be added to Netflix soon after it ends because that’s what they did last season with The People vs. OJ Simpson.
Celebrity Big Brother
Though I’m not quite a super fan, I’ve enjoyed the last couple seasons of Big Brother. This celebrity centered season is no exception. My roommate and I watch it religiously most nights of the week.
The first thing I bought for my upcoming trip was this wallet from Forever 21. I have a love-hate relationship with Forever 21, so I tend to only buy accessories from them. I wasn’t looking for a new wallet, but I was getting tired of the old card holder that I was using. This way I can have more than just my debit card and ID on me. This might seem silly, but my favorite thing about it is that it opens up. When I enter my building, I have to scan my student ID to unlock the door. Now I don’t even have to take it out.
