February Food

Once again, it has been quite a while since I've last blogged. In the interim hiatus, I've been catching up on a lot of work, hoping to be sufficiently on top of my assignments that I'm no longer stressing over them at the last minute. I am also freaking out because it is the end of February and I have not applied to as many internships as I had hoped by this point. Archery is cancelled this weekend so the goal is to use that time to get ahead on essays, readings, and internships.

On the plus side, it's been a good month for food; I've even knocked an item off of my bucket list! Anisha and I stumbled upon Ici when we were going grocery shopping but the bus never came. Frustrated, we decided to walk down College Ave. passing by Ici on the way. It was a fairly warm day so we stopped by. The ice cream was delicious, but very small in portion size. It's definitely worth the occasional treat!

The nice thing about food is that it is near-instant gratification. Unlike essays and projects, trying new food has a certain positive outcome. It's discouraging to put in the work but not see the results I thought I deserved. Unfortunately, perhaps I haven't been putting as much effort into my assignments as I should be. The grades I got back were a smack into the face that reminded me not to be complacent. Another (unrelated) thing is I need to sort out my accounts again. I've made so many new ones that I can't keep up with which password goes with which. This is a project likely left for spring break, but it continues to frazzle me in the meantime. Despite that minor hurdle, I am very ready for everything to start going well in life again. ◊
