My hair’s a mess and I’m bored as hell.
I’m currently trying to read through three different documents discussing educational standards for mathematics so that I can compare/contrast what’s different/similar pertaining to probability.
It’s the actual worst.
Also, I have a meeting with the head of the math department at a local high school (the one I graduated from, actually) in about an hour. Gonna get my practicum schedule finalized and then come back up to campus for class from 5-8.
I wish there was a way to capture moments of my yoga practice in pictures.
But since I’m not willing to have Dan just stand there and awkwardly snap photos of my postures…
Maybe one day I’ll figure out a system.
Screenshot from the video I posted today. I quite like the way I look right here. I find that I look best when I try not to. I wish I could turn the gorgeous on on command, but I just end up looking goofy when I try to pull of the ‘naturally beautiful’ look.
Perhaps y’all don’t even think I look particularly attractive in this picture. Doesn’t really matter. I do. And, really, isn’t that all that matters?
WOOOO!!! Got into my safety program! One acceptance letter down, one to go!
So much of my stress has been alleviated thanks to his acceptance letter. Now I know that I’m guaranteed grad school and that I don’t have to start applying for jobs, I can finally take a breath. Phew.
Seriously. Such a load off.
Everybody wish me luck regarding my acceptance into the M.A.T. program! That’s the one I really want, and I’m super anxious to hear back about whether or not I got it.
Nothing major. I’m thinking I’ll just start incorporating a lot more fruits/veggies and lean protein. (Less pasta, more nature.) And yoga/toning exercises every day. Obviously. Otherwise not much toning would happen!
I wish I had money for groceries right now… I wanna buy the entire produce section of the supermarket.
Who wants to do this with me?! Anybody? Just me? Okay then…
Question: Do y’all want me to post recipes or anything like that? I mean, I’m planning on snapping pictures of my food and whatnot; but if you want the recipe to go along with it, I’m more than happy to post them as well.
This morning started with my alarm clock blaring at me starting at 5:45 am. Why? Because I had to be at work an hour early today because of the Easter Sunrise Service. (Aside: I work in a church nursery. I take care of children ages infant to 5 years.) So I forced myself out of bed at that ungodly hour, made some tea, dicked around on the interwebs for a couple of minutes, and then finally got ready for work.
Work was loooong. I felt like it was never going to end. There were 4 church services today. FOUR. That’s a lot of Jesus.
Anyway, I got done at noon, and then it was down the street to my parents’ house for Easter lunch!
We had deviled eggs, asparagus soup, roasted bone-in pork loin, stuffin’ muffins (dressing cooked in a muffin pan), green beans sautéed in butter, mashed and baked sweet potatoes, gravy, and a lemon curd cake thing.
It. Was. Delicious.
Here’s a picture of the adorable deviled eggs I made. Because I know you want to see them :)
After lunch I finally had a second to relax, and I realized that I hadn’t checked my Easter basket to see what the Easter Bunny had brought me! Well, it wasn’t really much of a surprise because the Easter Bunny took me shopping at Ulta a couple of days ago and let me pick out sample sizes of a bunch of things I’ve been wanting to try :)
(Pictured: Lindor Extra Dark Chocolate Truffles, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion, Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray, OPI nail polish in Save Me, EOS lip balm, Benefit They’re Real mascara.)
The Easter Bunny also brought me a mini-herb garden. I’m almost borderline food-geek excited about this. I looove cooking with fresh herbs, so this gift should get a lot of use.
Hopefully I don’t kill it :/
And I think that’s everything. All in all, it’s been a very good Easter :)
Oh, and here’s a picture of my Grandpa with his dog, Yo-Yo.
Hope all of y’all had a fabulous Easter!
