...and I'm a creep. I take candid pictures of men in University Cafe's!!!
But I just always feel like when I tell a story, I should have some sort of visual for all of you!
After my doctors appointment (which I have no idea how I did since my doctor went home sick, so another doctor just weighed me) I went to go get coffee at a cafe near the Health Services center. While I was looking over some of my bio notes (aren't I so studious?!) I couldn't help but overhear these two men conversing over coffee. And I guess there doesn't seem to be anything special or out of the ordinary about this, but for some reason it really affected me. These are two men, who are seemingly faculty here at UConn, have the most EDUCATED conversation I have heard in a long time. They were talking about traveling and the schools statistics and graduate students and classes and it just goes on forever! I just absolutely love listening to people having such scholarly and knowledgeable conversations. It reminds me that there are SO much more important things in life, and also reminds me that I'm currently surrounded my such well-informed people! It makes me just want to get out and learn every single thing I can!!!
My old therapist used to compliment me on how smart I was (sometimes a little TOO much but we won't get into that right now!). Although I didn't believe him, I loved how we would have such cultured conversations- ranging from current events to epidemics around the world. It made me SO excited to go to college, and hearing these two men discuss politics and everything else...well, it just made me realize that I am doing exactly what I have always wanted- educating myself on all aspects of this world!
Two more things I wanted to talk about (oh gosh, I'm sorry this is so lengthy!)
1. My dietician read the article in today's paper. It was kind of awkward having her mention it, and then kind of wait for me to talk about it. I wasn't really sure WHAT to say, exactly. But she did say that although we have formed a fairly good relationship, she respects that the blog is still a very personal part of me and my recovery, and she isn't going to read it unless I feel as if she should. How great is she?
2. (First of all, I know that my roommate has read my article, so Jackie if you are reading this please do not be offended! I just wanted to mention it to some of the girls on here so I can come up with an idea on how to cope with this. Love ya <3)
Okay, so my roommate decided to do an experiment for psychology regarding how her body reacts to a pretty drastic decrease in calories. I have mentioned in previous posts that I really look up to her and her confident eating habits, so I'm not quite sure how I am going to deal with this. I did mention to her to be careful that she doesn't cut out TOO many calories. I mean, even I could tell her how that affects one's body!! But having her only eat a salad and cooked veggies for dinner tonight was such a trigger, and I guess I'm just looking for any advice you might have on how I can deal with this over the next few weeks?
But don't you girls worry. I had the GREATEST sandwich for dinner tonight. Loads of hummus, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles on two large pieces of whole grain bread. Can you say delicious?! I can!!!
Have a great Monday night girls!!!
