So apparently I should stop telling you all about my computer problems. Each time I do things apparently escalate and get worse. >.< That's right folks. Tonight, I am blogging, for the first time ever, on my iPad. Yep, I went out and bought a convert cord so I can upload my photos to it and luckily already have a keyboard. But let's be clear here, I doubt these posts are going to look as good since I don't have Windows Live Writer to help with the format. You've been warned!

First off I guess I'll tell you what's up with Ripley. Well last night after posting I thought I'd run some more scans and try to figure out what the silly error was I was getting at boot-up. I ran my Alien Autopsy software that came with the laptop…only to suddenly get a failed SMART test. The error had these words for me “Hard drive failure is IMMINENT. Backup your files and get a new hard drive.” Whoa. Imminent is one serious word. There are so few things in life that are imminent. However, just like the scan vowed, this morning I tried to do some work on Ripley only to have many many more crashed and system failures. The final verdict: Ripley needs a new heart. =(

So until her imminent transplant, I'll just have to make do. It's going to be a work in progress…

I had the opportunity to sleep in until 8:30am this morning but instead I found myself wide awake checking email in bed around 7am. Deciding to start my day I hit the shower and sat down for breakfast. Strawberry overnight oats topped with a spoonful of chunky peanut butter and a pinch of raisins. Overnight oats is really a great protein packed breakfast, but I keep finding it too small. Yes it keeps me full but I keep wishing I had more when I get to the bottom!

Since I had so much time before my A&P lab I sat around crying (just a little) about Ripley's imminent demise and studying for my quiz on the lymph system. While I studied I sipped this delicious shot of espresso mixed with a touch of honey and cream. I tried Nespresso's Cosi flavor which was described as light with citrus notes. I knew it wouldn't be my favorite since I like really bold espresso but it wasn't bad.

Lunch today was a little interesting. It started with free coconut pie! Just a small piece. I did turn down the chocolate one. ~.^

But why was there free pie? Well one of my sweet classmates, Andy, did really well on the last biochem test and he wanted to celebrate! He's such a sweetheart.

After pie and guzzling lots of cold water due to the sweetness, I was freezing and knew I needed to get some hot real food in me. The pickings were slim in the cafeteria yet again, but after much searching I found an amazing container of Moroccan Stew in the prepared foods section, heated it up, and enjoyed it with a wheat free parmesan rosemary roll. It turned out to be one of the best things the cafeteria's provided all week! I just need to remember to not lower my standards and keep looking.
After class today Chase and I headed to Bellevue to do some shopping. Somehow I found myself starving around 4pm so I devoured this Jo's Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Graham.
One of the stores we stopped for me was World Market so I could nab these adorable espresso cups I've been looking at all year! I finally have a reason to own them. ~.^
Of course, as soon as we got home I washed them up and had another espresso! This one was called Roma and is described as full and balanced. It's also intense so I loved it. Definitely going to buy more of this blend.
Around 5:30pm, I was starving for dinner. I guess that soup didn't have enough staying power. =/ I reheated a big bowl of parsley pesto pasta with roasted veggies….but ended up throwing it out. I ate half of it and realized I was not enjoying anything about it. It was either tasteless pasta or funky tasting veggies. Foods not worth eating if you aren't enjoying it! So next I made a bowl of Wheetabix with blueberries and toasted almonds. Of course that was wonderful!
However, I was still still hungry. >.< A banana and peanut butter did the trick along with some fat-free popcorn. Some days my appetite is just strange. After this final consumption though I stuck to my guns and hit the gym for 60 minute hill stationary biking. I dumped buckets and feel great! I will sleep well tonight.
Time to see if this thing can post. Here goes nothing! Please let me know if you are having any viewing issues.
