American people, help me!!
You know how I’m very very strongly thinking about postgrad study in the USA? I’m hoping to do a Masters in Clinical Psychology (and I believe it’s possible to take a few classes on the side too, in the US? If that’s true, I’d want to take something in nutrition or food or something – I’d love to ultimately work with eating disorders :)), but OH MY GOSH, how many unis does the USA have!? Crikey, I’m having a TERRIBLE time narrowing it down!! Sooo – are there any USA students/graduate students who could give me some advice on how to go from 1700 unis offering grad courses, to just 4-6!?
I’ve been on www.petersons.com and www.usaeducationguides.com, but it’s sooo hard. I also don’t get the money thing – am I right in saying graduate programmes are charged per credit? ie $500 per credit? And do graduates normally live on campus? Seriously, ANY advice would be welcome here!
Today wasn’t all full of confusion, oh no! MY PACKAGE ARRIVED!! Last weekend I ordered some funky food off of a health food website, and it finally came today:
My box of goodies contained….
Nutritional yeast! Yay! I’ve seen this all over the blog world recently, so I can’t wait to try :)
A millet dessert thing..don’t ask me to explain what it is cos I don’t know! I’ll do a big report when I have some :P
All natural, healthy-as-healthy-can-be peanut butter cookies :D
A soya dessert yogurt thing…
A CINNAMON-Y CEREAL! I can’t wait to tuck into this baby :) PLus check out the fab protein and fibre content:
Amaze, no? There was also…
Multi-grain O’s with the old keeeen-MWAH :) (x 2 – I accidently ordered two boxes…let’s hope I like it!)
A blueberry fruit bar thing, from Australia no less. They know how to groove up their fruit there, that’s for sure. Just ask Dannii Minogue. And finally…
…a Raw brownie! Again, can’t wait to tuck into that beast!!
For my afternoon snack, I knew I had to incorporate something new with my hot chocolate, so I had a peanut butter cookie:
GOODNESS ME! That thing was SO TASTY! It was almost like a cake crossed with a cookie…ie not snappy and crispy, but soft and melty..with a faaab-ulous PB flavour. I. LOVED. IT.
For dinner, I took a trip to Chinatown. Well, almost…it was just very Chinese-Japanese themed. I had some tofu marinated in cinnamon, soy sauce, hot sin, and this noodle sauce:
So it looked like this:
It was then cubed and then added in a big stir fry – I’d pre-roasted some broccoli, caulflower, parsnips and garlic (I really really can’t do even SLIGHTLY crunchy broocoli or cauliflower :s), so when it was out of the oven, I added it to some mushrooms, spring onion and spinach, and the tofu, and mixed it all about. I also threw in some soba buckwheat noodles (which I’d already boiled) and a load more of that noodle sauce, then served it all together in a big pile with a sesame seed garnish and added soy sauce! (phew, what a big sentence :p)
It was totally, amazingly delicious :D
While I munched, I watched the pilot episode of Everybody Loves Raymond – has anyone else seen this show? Does it get good? I know the bloke who played Raymond ended up getting 1million dollars per episode…so I’m assuming it was a success!!?? Maybe it still is, I don’t know…They don’t show it on TV over here I don’t think :s
After dinner and the show (it was like a mini romantic date with myself :p), I made a huge amount of mess when my head exploded from too many universities spinning round it. It took a while to clean up!! But I obviously did a good job, cos I managed to type out this post :)
Plus, I had two strong motivators to piece my head back together -
The thought of my daily dessert – 2% Greek, a hot chocolate, and half a fairtrade dark chocolate bar:
And the fact that 8 Out of 10 Cats is on any second!! So, I’ll leave y’all with some kitten pictures – what else!? Enjoy :)
