The Dance Saturday night ended up being a lot of fun. It was hosted at a science center, so not a lot of dancing actually went on–there was too much else to do! We had a night-sky planatarium, space simulator, etc. My date was just eh–no huge romantic potential there–but still a nice guy and good time! Not everyone had such a great time though…let’s just say there had been a LOT of pre-funking going on that night and a few girls didn’t make it on the bus.
The rest of my weekend was pretty chill and included mandatory grocery trips to WF, some homework, laundry and the highlight last night–sushi! I ended up having a meeting cancelled last-minute last night, so I happily took my friend up on her offer to take me to Sushiland for my birthday. Sushiland is a sushi restaurant that has a rotating selection:
Her friend also joined us and we had a great time. We rolled with my favorite sushi-eating style, sharing. The three of us shared a bunch of different rolls and thanks to my friend, I found some new great ones! My favorite of the night would probably be an eel tempura-type roll that she ordered. I also had my favorites–seaweed salad and lots of ginger and wasabi and green tea to wash it down! After we had beautiful sushi babies 😉 we finished off the meal with my birthday cake another favorite–red bean sesame balls. These. are. so. good!
Today was a long day full of classes and a meeting and discussion group tonight. We’re winding down the quarter now, and with that comes the work pile-on. It seems like teachers push everything back towards the end of the quarters and I’m starting to feel the stress. That, combined with stress of what to do/take next quarter, next year, my major…
In between classes today I munched this new-to-me bar
Verdict? I was definitely a fan! It tasted a lot more chocolatey than I expected. It was pretty light for an energy bar, but a good snack bar to say the least. The ingredz resemble a lara–all natural and cashew butter/date-based, with cocoa powder and greens. It tasted to me like a mix of a lara bar and a luna bar. Very dense and organic tasting, but also had little crunchy rice pieces like a luna. I’m looking forward to trying the apple pie flavor I picked up along with it!
Tonight’s agenda was The Bachelor season finale after my meeting, but I left about fifteen minutes before it was over. I heard through the grapevine that Vienna had won and was not happy. Mostly because uh, spoiler alert!! I watched all season (actually this is the only Bachelor/tv show I have watched diligently, even if mostly online 😉 ) and was rooting for Tenley. She is just so sweet and I thought they went better together! After tonight though, I did start to like V a little more. What do you think?
Well I’m off to study, put away my laundry, blog read and hit the hay somewhat early. I only have one class tomorrow but I need to put a few good hours in at the library. I’d also love to catch a yoga class- it’s been too long! If you’re in college, have you started wrapping up the quarter/semester? I know some of you are already on spring break! Jealous–mine is in sight though!
Spring break plans?? How do you choose classes??
What’s the best thing you ate/did/saw this weekend??
random musing: it’s girl scout cookie time and while part of me really wants a girl scout cookie, and part of me wants to support them, i haven’t bought any boxes because a) no sweets for lent and it would just be too dang tempting and b) $4 a box?! Don’t you think that’s a little ridiculous when the same cookies are sold at safeway for $1.99?! Bah. I shouldn’t hate, I used to be a girl scout. Still, I feel slightly guilty each time i pass a girl scout and don’t buy a box. Have you gotten some this year? Favorite flavs? I’m a thin mints girl at heart–ooo and I do love tagalongs! PB and chocolate will forever=heaven. I’ve seen the new berry flavor and would be interested in trying those, too!
