It’s not even 12 hours since my last exam as an undergraduate…and I’m already bored. As both my parents pointed out to me on separate occasions today, I have a whole week of unscheduled time before they arrive for graduation. What shall I do with this wealth of time? I attempted to combat boredom this afternoon by cleaning out my e-mail inbox and making a study-snack for my roommate (who still has a few more exams to complete). I also assembled a tentative list of activities to occupy my time over the next week:
- Continue with my recipe development project—I’ve got four more to finish.
- Catch up on all the television and magazine reading I’ve missed for, oh, the past 9 months.
- Complete my graduate school applications…because this free-time can’t last forever.
- Begin packing for the beach!
Any other suggestions? What do you like to do when you find yourself with unexpected leisure time?
While you’re brain-storming, I’ll provide you with a glimpse of today’s fuel:
Before flouncing off to my exam this morning, I poured myself a big bowl of my beloved GoLean. I shall never tire of this cereal—even though my dad says it looks like Kibbles N Bits, I lurve it.
After a celebratory run, I made myself a big salad using last night’s leftovers. Gasp! Caroline’s eating leftovers! The tofu was dang tasty straight from the fridge—no need for re-heating.
In addition to my recent freezer foraging, I’ve also been digging through my cupboards. This evening I discovered a can of butternut squash puree, so I decided to throw it into my pot of chili, acting as a substitute for pumpkin in my favorite Pumpkin Bulgur Chili recipe.
Alright, I think it’s time I got started on my stack of Self magazines. Good night.
