Change of Plans: Food

Remember that lunch I was going to eat?  Chobani, berries and granola?

I didn’t eat that.

I wasn’t that hungry today, so I just ate my Glo Bar and honeycrisp apple.  I’m saving the Chobani for another day; it is the last one I have!

It is a cold and rainy day in Madison, so I heated up the last of my split pea soup. The hot and thick soup was exactly what I needed.

IMG_3598On the side, I had some carrots and pita chips with hummus.

IMG_3599Unfortunately, the carrots I bought at the Farmer’s Market are really soft, and I couldn’t bring myself to eat more than 1 1/2 of them.

I don’t know what to have for dinner.  This isn’t a problem of not having any ideas.  This is a problem of having too many ideas swirling in my head.  Check back later to see what I chose! 😉

Change of Plans: Work

Remember my posts about stress and priorities?

I thought I could handle everything on that list.  Recently, though, I’ve felt as if something had to go.

Before I tell you what I changed, I must share this:  I do not like being a quitter.  I do not like to give up on something just because it is hard or time-consuming.  This decision was made two days ago, and I still feel icky about it.  But, I know it was the right thing for me to do.

I am no longer an unpaid intern for MixMyGranola.  Such a long list of priorities meant I was spreading myself far too thin.  I don’t have the time that would be required for a successful internship.  After putting 4.5 years into getting my engineering degree, and 4 years into developing my leadership in SWE, I want to end my college career on a strong note, without sacrificing my relationships.  Trying to do both the unpaid internship and the Student Assistant job for the freshman engineering course, in addition to the blog, would not allow me to do this.

I hate that I had to make this decision, but I know in the end that it was the right thing to do.

    If you know it was the right thing to do, that’s the only thing that matters. That way you can focus 100% on other more important things. Good for you. 🙂

    I know what you mean about being a “quitter,” but this isn’t quitting so much as “putting what’s most important first!” I know how things can get crazy, so keep on chuggin! 🙂 I also had soup today…icky icky day here in Madtown!

    Don’t stress and work too much, you have the rest of your life to do this. You ONLY get your senior year of college once, enjoy it.

    If only we had more hours in the day to do all of the things we want to do! I think you are very wise to prioritize your time and not allow yourself to be spread too thin for too long.

    That means more time for me!!! 🙂 And, while Mellissa’s idea is perfect, you get your senior year TWICE. 🙂

    Even more time to enjoy it.
