Josh and I are getting ready to move, so, last night I was organizing things to pack and came across a notebook I had in college. In a portion of this notebook I kept a food journal at times during my sophomore year (this was after I had gained my freshman 15 and was meticulous about calorie counting and all that HORRIBLE stuff that poor women are enslaved to that I’m so thankful I don’t even care about anymore!) But anyway, it was so fun to read.
First of all, it was crazy to see how much I would eat. We had a buffet-style cafeteria full of amazing foods. I would have written for dinner things like, “chicken cordon bleu, mashed potatoes, corn, roll, salad, cottage cheese with strawberries, orange juice, water” what a freak! And then later that night we would have a dorm meeting or something and I’d have written down “2 ½ frosted cookies, 1 fun size snickers, 2 chocolate chip cookies” Dang, Gena.
But anyway, the most interesting thing was how much stuff I used to do. Often times after I would write what I had eaten for dessert, I would write where I was, for example, “hot chocolate and cookies in Ky’s room” or “frapaccino at Starbucks” or “3 cups of coffee at Norm’s” or “Skittles at the Drive-In”. Almost every night of the week I had some kind of hang-out or meeting or Bible Study to be at. Now I’m a loser. We’re still really busy but it’s not always doing fun stuff.
Anyway, I had lots of fun reading over it and reminiscing how exciting my life used to be =). It’s funny how life changes and you don’t really notice. I also think if I were single I would do a lot more “fun” stuff. It’s really easy to be lame when you can be lame with your favorite person in the world.
