Lately, I’ve found my productivity dwindling a bit at home. Some days, I’m totally fine with staying inside and getting my studying done. Other days, I find it nearly impossible to actually sit down and get anything accomplished; I’m going down to switch the laundry, finding myself in the kitchen wanting to bake, or playing fetch with Cody.
Well, today felt like one of those days where I wasn’t going to get much accomplished at home…so I packed it all up and headed out to Starbucks.
Since my decision to head out was sort of last minute, I quickly grabbed some snacks to bring with me so I wouldn’t go hungry. I had my promised piece of banana raisin pumpkin bread before leaving the house, and plan on spacing out the rest of my snacks as I see fit.
(**By the way, I was told that the link for my Raspberry Almond smoothie from this morning was incorrect, so it’s since been fixed. Sorry about that!**)
Baby carrots + grape tomatoes + a golden delicious apple
I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the bar, since walnuts are probably my least favorite nut out there, but it’s actually amazingly delicious. The walnuts are ground up pretty fine and the flavor is really, really great.
I’m currently snacking on the bar and sipping on my iced coffee (just plain, no pumpkin today…it’s too warm out) while getting ready to watch some study videos.
And then I’ll be going back to the flash cards, which are probably my favorite way to study. The actual process of re-writing the material has always helped me hold the information better, and I just really enjoy studying from cards rather than a whole page of notes.
I’m a very visual learner and will often recall information as I remember how it looked written (either on a card, on a page of notes, etc.). I’m almost sort of wishing my head was a little bigger right now to hold all of this information…
Luckily, I’ve also got another little treat to “fuel” me through my afternoon study session…orange tic tacs!
Yes, that right there is what you’d call a “standing in line at Staples for too long and falling victim to the candy shelf” purchase. (Hey, at least I didn’t buy the 100 Grand that was staring me back in the face.) I’d always been a fan of orange tic tacs growing up, but I can’t even tell you when the last time was that I had them. I love how the orange ones are slightly chewy, unlike the rest of them. Mmmmm, they’re so good!
Ok, enough stalling…time to watch my videos.
