A dollop of farmer’s cheese (tvorog) with sour cream, honey and raspberries. A hard-boiled egg. A cup of Earl Grey with 2 brown sugar cubes. Four mini-sandwiches with cheese and a special cold cut. Oh tasty morning.
But really, if I have time, I make the best breakfasts ever. Sometimes I go a little too hardcore on the fattyness but this morning I actually felt incredibly good and healthy about myself. I even put honey and raspberries on my tvorog instead of jam! 🙂 That just makes me feel so happy. And full. And tasty. Well, I don’t feel tasty, but it was tasty.
Today is my first exam – EN 1001 – An Introduction to Literary Theory. I think it will go okay – I have read all of the books for it, which is more than a lot of people have done. And I’ve gotten B’s consistently for all of my essays (except that last one..) which is encouraging.
I don’t really have much of substance to say right now, I just really wanted to share my breakfast with you guys. It’s a shame I ate it all before I could snap a picture with something.
Also, practice empathy. Whether people are from China, Ethiopia, Romania, Brazil, Yemen or Canada – we are all the same because we are human beings. That’s where a lot of people go wrong I think – where I have gone wrong for the past little while. I have forgotten to practice it, since it is not a given talent but a learned skill to empathize with people. I miss my humanity.
PS. Winter Song by Sara Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson is stunning, and I listen to it all of the time. I heard it first being covered on an MTV show whose name I forget, but I fell in love when I heard the original. It’s perfect for winter, is it not? Even if it was called something like Flower, I would associate it with cooler weather. Just the whole slowness of it all, reluctance included.
