i got home from the lab yesterday around 5. i threw on some sweats and enjoyed my night. it was SO nice having my workout out of the way so i could just relax when i got home. i watched some more sex and the city, read a magazine, and whipped up this delicious dinner!
i made a yummy salmon salad. it included chopped carrots, celery, red onions, canned salmon, sun dried tomatoes, 1 T mayo, and 2 T on spicy honey dijon mustard.
to enjoy with it, i threw together a big spinach salad. it had spinach, of course, green peppers, carrots, celery, broccoli, tomatoes, a little shredded cheddar, and some garlic gold vinaigrette and a sprinkle of garlic gold nuggets.
there was some color under there! see?
yay, it was a great dinner that left me completely satisfied! i didn’t even have the urge to snack or eat dessert! after dinner i watched a netflix movie that arrived when i was out of town for the holidays! under the tuscan sun. i liked it! but i pretty much like any cute romantic movies. i’m easy to please. 🙂 then i skyped with my love in st. louis and had an early bedtime!
breakfast was enjoyed freshly made at home this morning! i made a batch of hot oats!
my toppings were frozen blueberries, shredded coconut, and bear naked granola. yum!
my coffee was enjoyed with bucky badger this morning because of this article. my school was ranked highest in internet brand equity – we’re the most “buzzed” about school! yay badgers!
now i’m off to get a LOT of work done at starbucks.
i want to leave you with one more interesting article. warning: this may be disturbing to read if you are a phd student. basically, the article has a very pessimistic take on phd’s. it talks about how there are an excess of them compared to the jobs available. one of the most depressing facts is that phd’s make only 3% more than people who have a masters degree. and a phd takes at least 2 years longer than a masters. in my program some students take up to 7 years to finish their phd research. i think that should be worth a more than 3% pay increase!
[stepping off my soapbox]
send me good focus vibes so i can get my revisions done!
any other graduate students out there?
what do you think of the article?
