On Tuesdays I’m at school all stinkin’ day so I have to pack quite a bit of food. I have a canvas bag full of lunch, dinner, and snacks.
Yesterday I ventured away from my usual easy sandwich and made this wonderful cold salad.
In the tupperware:
- green onion
- grated zucchini
- lemon juice
- cayenne pepper
Here’s the thing about Tuesdays. I can’t stand them. Nothing against the day that starts with Tue and ends with sday. On Tuesdays I have school from 10am to 10pm. It’s horrible, really it is.
For the past five semesters I’ve taken the “jam all your classes into as few days as possible” approach to my schedule. Having three days off a week seems like a pretty gosh darn good idea doesn’t it? Probably for some, but not for me. There’s about a billion reasons I hate being at school for that many hours in a day. Brad had to hear them all last night, I’ll spare you.
For my fall semester I have taken a whole new approach to my schedule. I’m doing a one class a day type of approach. Yes it takes an hour or more to get to campus, but I’ve gotten really good at studying on the subway and bus.
I have a feeling this is going to un-miserable myself. Why didn’t I think of this sooner? Why have I suffered through so many semesters of long days?
One more example of un-miserabling myself: rain boots. Wet feet make me a rage-aholic. Since I have to walk to the subway and stand in line to get the bus home, my feet were always soaked when it rained. I would sit in class with wet feet (hmmmm is this why I have no friends at school?) and just stew in fury. I splurged on a pair of really good rain boots last spring and my feet have never been happier. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Let’s hope my new school schedule works out the same way.
Do you have anything that makes you as miserable as my long days or wet feet? Something more than an annoyance, something that is just a bee in your bonnet all day? So what are you going to do about it?
