I almost forgot about my new diet. I was supposed to start today, but I think I'm going to wait until I eat through all the foods I'm not supposed to eat first so that I dont waste anything (waste > my health)

So I suppose in a few days that food should be eaten and my diet will no longer consist of:

cane sugar (in any form)
bean sprouts

and like usual, no dairy.

I've got to finish my two favorite things before I start my diet: almond vanilla granola with vanilla soymilk.

Cane sugar will be tough, but it makes so much sense that I'm allergic to it. It's why I always feel healthier while in Europe- they use beet sugar! So my life will now not only consist of reading nutrition labels, but being able to identify brands and knowing where beets are grown in the USA. awesome.

Sundays are a joke

On Sundays, I'm pretty good at underestimating the amount of work I have to do for the following week. How do I know this?
Because my datebook is filled with at least 2 things for every date until Saturday. Then, I've got 2 volunteer events happening in 2 weeks, a paid temporary job for a week in a few weeks, more hours at my current job, a few lunch/dinner/coffee dates spread over the next 2 weeks, an application for my major due this week, prefield training on the weekend, 3 short papers due in the next week and an exam in 2 weeks.

What have I completed so far? What have I gotten started on? (no one probably cares but at least it lets me keep track of myself):
just about to start 2 of those short papers

that's it.

Oh yes, and I have to buy gifts for 3 individuals in the next week or so.

What's going on in my brain

>> i should chop off my hair for summer. life would be easier.
>> i should pierce my nose again. where's the money going to come from? I should work some more.
>> hungry. what's to eat? burrito. pb&j? oh yeah, no sugar.
>> I'm highly allergic to cane sugar. and almonds and bean sprouts.
>> If it hasn't been noted, I'm lactose intolerant and have been on a dairy free diet for 11 months.
>> please, 2 page paper just type yourself.
>> I just checked some brands in my area... turns out beet sugar is pretty available! but that still means I need to avoid all baked goods for the next 3 weeks because most bakeries use cane sugar (so much better in cooking. a lot sweeter!)

Here we are at this place, a great historic moment

O rly?

what's up with this 2 month gap? ridiculous. my paper journal is suffering as well.

i guess it should be noted that i'm:
in school
not really working
sort of kind of studying
dating someone amazing
trying to like seattle but not really
getting ready for traveling
feeling anxious and scared
and really emotional
It's weird the differences in intensity and length of relationships affects the influence that a person has on another (or at least in me)...

Though I have close friends that keep me sane and grounded on a daily basis, a brother and sister who I see on occasion give such wonderful advice and listen so thoroughly that I'm left forgetting what I was stressing about earlier.

then there's a boy who makes me forget what I was thinking about 10 seconds before...
