An avocado sandwich, two graduation ceremonies, and a haircut
Since coming home, I’ve been trying to eat healthier. Law school is not conducive to weight loss, and I’ve taken it upon myself to lose some law school flub in the next few weeks. By eating several small meals a day and working out like a madwoman (I played tennis twice yesterday and ran/walked over 7 miles the day before that), I’ve actually some small progress. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that it keeps up, yes?
Anyway, this has caused me to start eating more sandwiches. I hated sandwiches in high school– I brought school lunch every day, and my dad would pack me the exact same thing every day: turkey ham on wheat. Sometimes there was mayonnaise. That was it. Plus a drink and fruit, I think. And some other small snack. Healthy and tasty, but after four years, I was sick of it. So I never made sandwiches for myself all through college.
But I’ve changed. I like sandwiches again– especially because there are so many different things you can do! So here’s one of my current faves:
Avocado Egg Sammie:
- 1 egg
- 1/2 a ripe avocado
- soy sauce
- 2 slices of whole wheat bread
To put it together:
- Fry the egg however you like it. I like mine well done on both sides, but if you like it sunny side up, over easy, etc– doesn’t matter.
- While you’re frying the egg, toast your bread slices.
- Spread the avocado over a slice of bread.
- Add soy sauce on top of the avocado, and let it spread. I like to let some of it soak into the bread.
- Top with the egg, the other slice of bread, and enjoy!
In other news, my brother graduated this month!!! Congratulations, Jon! He just received his B.A. in history from the my alma mater, the University of Maryland, College Park.
The first night was at Comcast Center, and my dad and I suffered through the three-hour long ceremony. I’ll be honest here, it was BORING as heck! Plus, we didn’t get home until midnight! I had arrived on the red eye at 6 a.m. that morning, so it was PAINFUL.
And, of course, the next morning, my mother and I headed back to campus to attend the individual college’s commencement– the one where Jon would actually be walking across the stage, shaking some hands, kissing some babies . . . It was much more interesting, and the weather was absolutely gorgeous!
(The pictures look good, no? Unfortunately, our youngest brother is still in high school and had some test that day, so he couldn’t make it to commencement.)
Jon will be attending graduate school to get his Masters in History this fall.
[Funny story: Next year, I’ll be graduating from law school. The year after that, Jon will be graduating from grad school. The year after that, our youngest brother, Jeff, will be graduating from high school. And yes, all three of our names begin with J . . . plus, our Aunt’s name is Judy, our Uncle’s name is John, and a cousin’s name is Jimmy . . . I kid you not!]
One last thing– I finally cut my hair! I’ve been looking for a hairdresser in San Francisco for the past two years, but I still retain my loyalty to my hairdresser here on the East coast. What do you think?
