It’s quite cold. Maybe I feel more cold because I have a cold but it’s quite cold right now. At least it’s sunny and my room has sunlight being thrown around, warming my bed and desk 🙂 ⛄️⛄️⛄️⛄️⛄️
Tuesday mornings are quite bland usually. Tuesdays mean school which isn’t as favourable but praise the lord for our term break. Today marks the heart of our mid semester break and I don’t know whether to be happy or sad about it. I miss my morning routine and being on top of life but the comforts of my room and blanket and trackies is too much to give up.
Today morning has been unusually packed. I had maths tutoring (ew) in the morning so that meant waking up early to go and learn. Fun. And then because I was freezing when I came home, I decided to spoil myself and make a proper breakfast instead of settling for a cup of milk.
First things first is grilled tomatoes seasoned with oregano, chilli and olive oil, freshly smushed avocado, boiled eggs, and tomato and capsicum relish piled upon sourdough bread from the local bakery. I honestly missed the taste of eggs for breakfast because when I was younger, I ate eggs for about three months before I developed an intolerance to them. I couldn’t eat egg without it being processed into a biscuit or cake or dessert which was unfortunate because eggs are so nutritious. But recently, my doctor said to try eat them again because now that I’m older, intolerances are grown out of. And I’m glad I can stomach eggs because they are so delicious and really fill me up. It’s a great thing to have and they’re so convenient to eat on the way to school or on the go if I’m in a rush to get to school. I also decided to put effort into my brekkie because why the hell not (:
Also praise the lord for avocados. Avocados are possibly the best things on earth and they taste so good with so many things. Something I really enjoy making with my avos is an avocado smoothie with kale, flaxseed, oats, almonds and a teaspoon of honey. It’s delicious.
In the true spirit of my “Indian-ness”, no part of the day is complete without a cup of tea. I’m quite picky with my milk tea so I have a special custom blend I prepare for each cup. The additions to my tea vary with season so in summer, I tend towards adding cardamom and an Indian herb called Tulsi; but in Winter, I love having a spicier blend, so I add ginger, cinnamon, cloves and Tulsi (the cinnamon and cloves are to prevent colds from being as bad and they taste so good together) to black tea leaves and then I add milk and honey. Tea is the best thing I probably learnt to make. It brings me so much satisfaction and happiness. Can you feel an unbounded sense of happiness from having a well made cup of tea? I think you can.
So now as I attempt to get my history extension work done, I have the angelic voices of Charlie Puth, Sam Smith, Justin Timberlake and Ed Sheeran emanating from my speakers and I don’t feel like working at all. Honestly, I’d hoped for a little down time in my holidays but that clearly isn’t happening so whatever. Time to attempt to write my notes for my major work (: Yay for HSC.
