So, this is how much I got done by last night around 5:30pm. Not as much as I would have liked, but I was too busy eating, procrastinating w/classmates, eating, procrastinating w/classmates' siblings, eating, and eating.
I managed to fall asleep last night at 8:30pm, wake up to noisy neighbors, fall back asleep quickly - unheard of! - have bad dreams about having unanesthetized surgery while leaning over a table in some weird conference/office/random building where the "surgeon" cut open part of my back and then sewed it shut again, and still wake up at 8:30am. Feeling drugged from the noodles and dumplings, I decided that staying in last night and cooking Korean food was just as bad as if I indulged my desire to have pizza or Persian food.
I managed to walk to and from Whole Foods (and actually not buy a single sweet item!), and cook like a fiend. I did a very satisfying stir-fry and then had to get myself ready for the big dish: veggie maki. I made 19 rolls (what you see are 17, b/c I ate two along the way). Black beans are cooling on the stove; I think I'll do a salad w/dandelion greens. Now I am very tired, scared about varicose veins, and ready to indulge in a nap.
