food for thought

While I was previously daunted by the sheer length of this summer (16 weeks seems endless) it’s proving to be quite pleasant thus far.  I’ve had the time to start running again, and I rediscovered vegetables– actually just non-cafeteria food in general.  After learning more about nutrition at university, I’m interested in trying to find ways to cut down on sugar and processed foods.  It’s been easy so far, but I’m sure it will prove to be more difficult once fall rolls around.  The food choices at my school could be likened to the typical Coachella attendee– rich, white, and lacking in variety.

Additionally, isn’t reading great?  I’d forgotten how awesome it was.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I read a book that either a) wasn’t a biography or b) wasn’t a textbook.  Right now I’m finishing up The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis, and I cannot recommend it enough.  It’s an in-depth examination of human love, both thought provoking and enlightening.  Unfortunately, it’s short– I only have about 6 pages to finish, and I’m dreading the book’s conclusion.

I suppose it’s a good thing that my internship starts soon– otherwise I’d quickly turn into a fat scholar.

Although I’m pretty sure that I’d be okay with that.
