Confessions + Coffee

My favorite part of the day is the morning. Specifically, the first few sips of freshly made coffee. It's my time to think, mentally plan for my day, and listen to The Today Show (of course). Sometimes, because I live with my boyfriend, I am forced to listen to Morning Drive. For all of you non-golf fanatics, this is also known as the quietest morning show, ever. On the Golf Channel. Because apparently, there IS a golf channel. If I had it my way, there would be a 'Ballet Channel.' But no. Admittedly, I usually get my way with this one and get to watch The Today Show. It makes me think of my childhood, growing up, and always hearing my Mom already awake watching it. 

Speaking of coffee, one of the ways I save money as a student is most always making my own coffee. Right now, I am loving this brand from Trader Joes. I love that it is Fair Trade and organic. Also, I love that it is $7. I make my coffee by brewing hot water in my tea kettle, then pouring the hot water over the coffee in a single filter. Super smooth.

Everyone has been asking me how school is going this semester, as I just started three weeks ago. I will write a Journey to Become an RD post, but my overall impression, thus far, is it is going to be a good semester. I have excellent teachers. I am completely terrified of my Biochemistry class, but relieved that I have a wonderful, young, eager Professor. Fingers crossed.

This stuff is easy, right? No.

I serve at a Southern Italian pizzeria three times a week, and am beyond grateful to have landed this job at this great joint just six blocks from my apartment. Last Sunday, I was carrying some wine glasses to a table when I slipped and fell backwards. I landed on my back and head on the floor, clenching the (now) broken wine glasses. My left hand, specifically my ring finger, got cut up so I went to the ER (workers comp), where they glued it back together. I have a fairly high pain tolerance, but that doesn't mean I like to look at cuts or anything. Plus, I've never gotten stitches in my life. Poop? I can deal with that. Bloody cuts exposing flesh? I am definitely going into the right profession - so much respect for all nurses, doctor, and other health care professionals out there. I can barely look at my finger right now; it just freaks me out.

Beer tasting at staff meeting for work; I wish I liked beer.


It may be 70 degrees and sunny in San Francisco, but I am still loving the Oh She Glows 10 Spice Soup recipe. If you haven't made it yet, you are missing out. I will try not to bring it up on the blog again, but I am obsessed with it. It's rich and creamy, and made with a cashew cream that takes it

Finally, I am looking forward to a weekend of pure, good ole studying. I have my first big exam Tuesday morning. I am also looking forward to getting back on the yoga mat. Due to this little ole finger injury, my downward dogs have been compromised. Therefore, tomorrow, I am going to try to go back to yoga and I cannot wait. Yoga, study, work (without falling) will not be too bad this weekend. 

Until next any confessions you'd like to share?


  1. Yes. I still watch Grey's Anatomy. And I will until they pull it off the air. MERE AND DERE FOREVER. (Now let's get a coffee/juice date on the books!)

    1. Ha ha. Love your confession! I stopped watching Grey's once Dr. Burke (sp?) left and when Denny died. It was so good back then. I agree, Mere and Dere forever!
