Hey hey! Happy Friday! How’s your week been? After a jam-packed week of work and meetings and stuff, my weekend looks pretty light, which is an unexpected treat. I do have an econ midterm on Wednesday, but my teacher assures us it won’t be awful. And after having taken 3 quarters of this econ sequence, I can tell you that the teachers don’t usually lie. (They do usually make the exams pretty hard, but that’s a different story.) Anyway, what do you say we kick off the weekend by looking back at some of our favorite things from this super-busy week? Let’s do it.
- A care package
So… I don’t have a picture because I kind of tore into it too fast, but my grandma sent me a pretty great care package with everything from granola to Goldfish to dark chocolate. Let’s just say I forgot how much I love Goldfish. They’re definitely one of my childhood favorites!
- These cookies
OMG. Guys. I had some insanely ripe bananas last weekend, and Arman is a genius, so I made these. Aaaand you should do the same. I cannot eat just one (I think my one-sitting minimum is three, which is 30% of the batch…?), so I had to freeze them to slow myself down. But they seriously taste like banana bread in the form of chewy, satisfying cookies. They’re great. Make them!
- Running water
Guys, sometimes you have to be grateful for the little things. The water in my dorm was turned off from 8am to 5pm yesterday for some sort of repairs, and you never really appreciate having things like drinking fountains and toilets and sinks to wash dishes until you don’t have them anymore. I spent most of the day in the econ building, where there was water, and outside… and then came home and did the dishes 😉
- Working outside
Did you notice I said I spent time outside? That means it’s been nice here! I mean, I wore shorts on Monday!
I can’t do lots of demanding work outside because it’s distracting and not that comfortable, but I did get to fill out some (virtual) paperwork while hanging out on a bench on the quad. I felt kind of like I was in a college brochure, and it was glorious.
- Impromptu girls’ weekend
My mom is coming to visit this afternoon, which I so appreciate. Sure, I have some work to do, but I’m really looking forward to hanging out with her and recharging a bit. ❤️
Have a fabulous Friday! I’ll talk to ya next week!
Do you have any plans for the weekend?
Goldfish or Cheez-Its?
What are you loving this week?
