Isn’t it amazing we can be so far away yet experience the same earthquake? First of all, I feel so close to all of you. I thought my afternoon Kombucha was making me tipsy, until I realized that my chair was shaking on its own. I’m all the way up here in Canada yet I still went on the same ride as many of you in the eastern states.
Speaking of being at work…I’m half way done my last week of work! I’ve enjoyed my summer job, and learned a lot. This post is dedicated to a summer of lessons, and I will share it at the WIAW party hosted by Peas and Crayons!
Lesson 1: Old tricks can always have a new spin
I was using old skills I learned in courses but applying them to new technologies. It makes all that hard term work pay off
Same old Oat bran trick with a nutty twist (Forever nuts tea used as liquid, and almond extract added)
Lesson 2: Try new things, you may just be missing out
If I listed all the new things I tried at work I would loose you. So I will keep it at one: asking coworkers for help when your stuck on how to do something. I’ve lost a lot of time in the past trying to figure out things myself!
I’ve seen these in the store before, but haven’t tried them until now. I’ve been missing out, I loved them. They had an intriguing fishy taste (in a good way), but that could be a result from reading they have 6 times the omega 3 then salmon. The tricks the brain plays…
Lesson 3: Accidents happen, that doesn’t mean all is waste.
Computer programming can be like a hard boiled egg. If the shell cracks the insides don’t fall apart. For non-programmers, what I mean is most mistakes aren’t irreversible.
You didn’t think I only had an egg for lunch did you? Caramel pudding mixed with greek yogurt and chia seeds. Then layered with hemp hearts. So thick, creamy and pillow-y.
Lesson 4: If your heads spinning, take a break
I’ve realized that taking a short water break, when the computer screen is spinning before your eyes does not make you less efficient. While I’m at it, I enjoy spinning my snacks:
Ironically I wrote this spinning analogy BEFORE the earthquake, little did I know that dizziness would be upon me again shortly…
Recently I tried Kombusha and fell in love.
Recently I tried Puffins and fell in love.
This goes hand in hand with Lesson 2.
Lesson 5: Some things don’t mix
I don’t mix well with a day completely full of people. I need to clear my hear and get some alone time at some point.
I made tempeh in peanut sauce and broccoli slaw. It was alright, but I wouldn’t mix these two together again.
Lesson 6: If you don’t have the resources make due with something else.
I was lacking time to add some additions to my project, but I made due with what I completed. I’m the type of person the strives to go above and beyond, but sometimes above is all that’s required to make a good impression.
I didn’t have the craving for my usual nightly greek yogurt bowl (maybe because of all the greek yogurt at lunch), so I opted for something else: a pumpkin protein microwaved pudding topped with apple and peanut flour sauce
What have you learned this summer? Have you tried savi seeds?
