I Love College

You know how the song goes… right? Well I guess that song doesn’t mirror my college life anyhow, other than the fact that the singer loves college.

It’s really is great to be a Florida Gator. I love everything on campus from the historic buildings to the automated moving shelves in the libraries.

Now that I’m back to fending for myself I’m either eating super healthy or I’m eating, well, Moe’s. I can’t stay away from it. Not only does Moe’s have those fancy new Coke dispensers, but it also attracts all the champions. I love seeing Olympic competitors and UF athletes around campus and Gainesville. The first time I ate at Moe’s this semester my friends and I saw one of the gymnasts.

I have also recently joined a Christian sorority (Theta Alpha). This is something I never thought I’d do. Large groups of girls isn’t really my thing, but I love all of these girls. Plus they give me cookies.

Guess who learned how to make vegetables unhealthy? Me. It took a trial and error process to work out the kinks and get it right. Fried zucchini!

One more thing; despite my efforts to not give in to being a part of social media (Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, ect.) I have become an avid user of Spotify. The second I heard Bob Boilen mention it on NPR I was all over it.      http://open.spotify.com/user/autumnmccurdy      <CHECK IT YO

Mmm… Pancakes

It’s that time of year yet again. Exam week. Naturally my roommates are frazzled and stressed out.

All week long we have been craving pancakes; we finally gave in and had a pancake party.

Ingredients use:

pancake mix, chocolate chips, oat meal mix, syrup, peanut butter, ice cream, cocoa powder, butter, and a whole lot of love

Needless to say we all ruined our dinners. I should have listened to my mother. All my life she warned my not to eat any cookies too closely to dinner and here I am at 4:30 in the afternoon with a tall stack of pancakes.

Pancake ice cream sunday with syrup on top.

I got a little lazy toward the end of the pancake experimentations and threw a whole lot of batter into the frying pan. Poor execution of the monster pancake.


The point is pancakes are awesome, studying is not, and I feel like I’m going to vomit because I ate too much.

My Apartment Is 90° (Probably)

Seriously, some guy has been working on my A/C for hours with no results. It’s Florida, it’s summer, it’s cooler outside than it is inside.

Here’s a few reasons why I’m not getting school work done:

1. It’s raining.
2. My book is starting to get good.
3. I’m hungry.
4. I should fold my laundry.
5. I should put up my laundry.
6. It’s raining.
7. My apartment is too warm.
8. My tea is too cold.
9. I’m going to hang up the painting I just finished.
10. I’m going to upload a picture of the painting I just finished.

Anyway, I made a cauliflower monster.

I really have no idea what you do with cauliflower. How do you cook it? What do you eat it with? Why  does it remind me of sheep?

Hydration And Education

So I somehow accidentally bought three cases of Snapple. Not to point fingers but, I blame Kaitlynn Floyd.

Now with three fruity flavors and 18 new pieces of information I feel hydrated and a little smarter. With exams next week I’ll take all the knowledge I can get.

Did you know:

The average lead pencil can draw a line 35 miles long or write roughly 50,000 English words.

The only jointless bone in the body is in your throat.

On average a man spends about 5 months of his life shaving.

While on the subject of hydration, I’ve recently learned that coffee dehydrates your body.

FroYo

I’ve got an obsession. Want to know what it is? I’ll give you a hint, it starts with frozen and ends in yogurt.

Every Tuesday is two punch Tuesday at TCBY and I am very proud to have surpassed filling one punch card.

Right next to my apartment building is Mochi, another frozen yogurt joint. And then there’s Red Mango, I have a lot of coupons for red Mango.

My pal Alicia lent me the Bible there. It’s the ESV study Bible, it’s awesome. I’ve got a study Bible and I’ve got an ESV Bible, but it just isn’t the same as an ESV study Bible.

Also this week, I finished my still life painting for class!

One and a half school assignments down and half to go. As I write this I’m procrastinating from finishing a paper for a reporting class.
