Cooking: Nothing. I have been eating all the raw fruits and veggies lately. Ain't nobody got time for 90 seconds in the microwave.

Planning: Lesson plans and activities for the rest of the semester! We are reading Seedfolks and I am working on fluency and comprehension with the students.

Reading: Well, I just finished Gone Girl and totally recommend! I lent it to a friend about a month ago, and I am itching to be able to start it again. I recently finished Eat, Pray, Love and read a fiction book by the same author.

I have also been researching the effects of screentime and how that plays into students with disabilities. Here is a less scientific journal type article from NPR that sums it up.

Watching: We re-started Mad Men and every time I am floored by the cultural differences. What a different world!

On HBO, I watched Americans In Bed and 112 Weddings. The first focuses on the relationships of 10 couples and many of them talk about the importance of physical attraction. 112 Weddings was interesting because most of the couples never imagined what marriage would really mean to them. Jae was less than interested but I was enthralled!

Wearing: All black everything with scarves. Going from internship to work makes me feel like I am a funeral.

Running: I have trying to get out of my rut. I have been running at Asylum Lake lately and running on the trails is super motivating! I also LOVE running in the cold. Well, more like my body likes it. PS- Asylum Lake is aptly named.. it used to be the Kalamazoo Asylum in the 1800s and early 1900s.
