First things first, HAPPY OCTOBER! I love all things October. It is my birthday month after all. This is going to be a quick little update about my life here at Fontbonne.
Cooking Class: Stir Fry! We made a veggie stir fry with Ramen noodles. We had the option of boiling the noodles to make them soft, like pad thai or sautéing the noodles in a dry skillet to make them crunchy. My group boiled half of the package of noodles and crisped the other half of the package. I loved the crunch the toasted noodles gave the dish along with the broccoli, cauliflower, water chestnuts, onion, carrots, peppers, baby corn and bamboo shoots. I can’t remember the spices we used, but it worked out nicely.
Blood Drive: Yesterday I gave blood for the first time!!!!! In previous years, I could never donate because my sport was always in season and this semester I am not participating in a sport soooo I finally got to participate!!! I was so excited when my Iron was high enough to give because I have a history of low Iron. The whole process took 30 minutes tops. The actual blood giving process took about 10 minutes, if that, and was relatively painless. I have always been good with needles and blood work and this was the same way! It is such a great thing to do and I felt great afterwards, physically and mentally, which was not what I expected. I will definitely be donating again! If you have never donated before, consider it!! It is not that bad, I promise!
Art: I have about 6 weeks to complete all of the artwork I want to put in the Undergrad art show held for the graduating undergrads. I am working on 5 paintings and multiple digital works. . . Wish me luck. I am so excited and so nervous at the same time! I literally smell like oil paint and turpenoid alllll the time. Cute, I know. I will do an artwork post eventually!
This Weekend: I AM GOING TO LIVE ON A FARM(for a few days)! My best friend Ariel is whisking me away to a farm in Indiana where we will be taking care of horses, donkeys, goats, chickens, cats, dogs, birds and fish all by ourselves!!! Good thing she is experienced. I am so so so so excited for this!!! I LOVE animals and if you never hear from me again, its because I am staying at the farm for the rest of my life just hangin’ with the animals. I am going to gain about 50 new best friends. I do live in Kentucky, but I do not live on a farm. It is a dream of mine to have animals, and I get to live that dream for about 4 days. Not complaining. Expect animal picture overload!
Thats it for now! Again, happy October! Have a great weekend!!
