My first final exam was yesterday. As usual, I went in hopped up on caffeine (grande, non-fat, no water chai with a shot, please) and feeling hopelessly unprepared. And, as usual, it wasn’t as bad as I had expected.
Now I have a week until my next final, and my third (and last) final is a week from Thursday. Instead of taking this time to prepare for the exams, I’ll take it to relax and maybe do a few other things I have been meaning to do:
1. Make some more bread (it’s been two weeks!)
a. Learn how to make some pizza dough from scratch
b. Learn how to make nan to go with curry dinner
2. Go to Whole Foods and Trader Joes
3. Make some appointments (hair, eyebrows, pediatrician, doctor)
4. Figure out some new easy meals to make
5. Compile all of my chicken-scratch recipes into a nice, neat, organized binder
6. Call people I’ve been meaning to call (namely Autumn!)
The list could go on (it always could) but I wont bore you with it.
Instead, here are some pictures for you to peruse:
Alex wearing his cute little rugby collared shirt and jeans. Seriously, he’s way more stylish than I will ever be.
Gotta love Target shirts on clearance! This one says “Mr Grumpy.” That is only true when it’s nap time or bed time. Otherwise, he’s a perfectly, actually kind of oddly, happy child:
Seriously, he’s like a crazy-content baby. If he never had to sleep, he would always be thrilled to be alive.
And because after his baths he always looks so silly, I’d like to share with you Alex, the little aryan baby:
I can’t help but look at him with his combed-down hair and bright blue eyes and think of how much he would have been loved during Hitler’s Germany. I know, I know, inappropriate. Too soon, maybe. Plus, in Hitler’s Germany Alex would have been considered Jewish because he is more than 1/16 “Jewish blood.”
