Keep on Truckin’

Happy Thursday everyone! I can’t even believe all that has gone on in the past week. It seems like this week has literally lasted years. Just a week ago this time I got into my little fender-bender on the way home from the farmer’s market! It seems like the weeks go by a lot quicker when I am busy in Orlando, going to school and work. It’s so true the old saying that time goes by a lot faster when you are busy. That’s always the case!

This morning I’ve been doing some cleaning because I don’t want my dad to come home tonight to a totally gross house. My mom won’t be home until Saturday but thankfully my dad is coming here tonight so I am able to head back to Orlando to go to school tonight and work tomorrow. I made a bowl of oatmeal when I woke up using soymilk, a big banana, cinnamon and almond butter. I cleaned for about an hour then went on a run outside. I ran (well using the trusty Galloway method) for about 30 minutes then walked the last 10 minutes, then took Mikan outside immediately for another 10 minute walk. I’m about to hit the shower now and get packed up before heading to the apartment to grab Dexter and go!

    That old saying is so true Jenna. Now that I am not chained to a cubicle anymore and I spend my day moving around- i feel like time is flying by! I took that quote you shared with us to heart yesterday- I am def learning to slow down. It is funny how quotes can stick with us. When I was deciding on whether or not to make a career change my mom said to me , “Cassie- life is to short to be anything but happy”. That’s all I needed to make a change – and I couldn’t be happier.

    Thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful Thursday!

    Jenna! I just got the opportunity to read your post from last night. Wow! How inspiring. I have been w/ my boyfriend just over 2 years as well, the whole time long distance. I can remember wishing everyday would be a day I got to see him again. Now, we enjoy the time together much more, and we won’t be at a distance forever, but it’s still hard.

    My mom always used to tell me when I was waiting for the weekend not to wish my life away. Very similar to what you said. What a profound post for someone so young! I *know* what you both have said is true, but it’s hard to *live* it.

    Thanks for the perspective 🙂

    Hey Jenna,

    One comment – two questions:

    My husband and I were long-distance (about the same distance as you and Ryan) for two years after we graduated college (we were dating then). It was so tough at the time but we totally credit the time with making us a lot stronger as a couple and better friends in general. You guys are doing great and I’m sure you are so much stronger for this!

    1) How do you cook artichoke? It totally intimidates me

    2) Since you were an English major and love to read, what had been your career thoughts before culinary school? Do you have any goals to write? What prompted the switch to the culinary degree? (Just curious – sorry if that’s nosy)

    You have such a great personality and I know you will do just great! ^_^ I second the question about artichokes: do you just steam them in the microwave? Have an awesome day!
