Change of Plans
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.
On the side, I had some carrots and pita chips with hummus.
Unfortunately, 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
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.
