Shana Tovah guys! Happy New Year–it’s 5769!! 

Tonight started Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. Throughout college this has always been a very bittersweet time for me. Growing up I always had so much fun celebrating the holidays with my family and it’s always really hard being away from home during this time. I’m always really homesick right about now : ( At least this year I’m in the US at least–celebrating the High Holidays (Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur) in Spain last year was one of the hardest times for me and I definitely felt very lonely during those days. At least this year I am surrounded by some great friends!

Preworkout

I woke up this morning really hungry! Must have been a delayed reaction from my long run yesterday. I decided to up my pre-workout snack a little from the usual clif mini to a full sized Kashi bar. This fueled me nicely through my workout.

Breakfast

The usual cereal mix.

Lunch

Lunch was delicious today! It had lots of parts, which is my favorite way to eat–I love it when it takes me a long time to eat because I usually gulp everything down so quickly. I took my time today and loved every bite.

I had a cup of Roasted red pepper and tomato soup, some toast with hummus, an apple, and some goldfish. Yum!

Some of the goldfish decided to go for a swim after I took the picture.

Snack

I popped up some kettle corn this afternoon–best study snack ever!

After this things got hectic–I went straight to a meeting for the International Relations Honors Society then immediately to services for Rosh Hashana, then to dinner. At least the rain stopped (for now…)

Dinner

I couldn’t take pictures of dinner tonight (or tomorrow night) because it wasn’t really appropriate to pull out my camera or camera phone. Sorry! 

As per tradition, we started the meal with apples and honey in hopes for a sweet new year. Then was the delectable raisin challah. This stuff is amazing. Almost as good as my grandma’s. For the main course there was sweet bbq chicken, green beans with roasted tomatoes and garlic, and a ratatouille with veggies and beans. There was plenty of wine, but I just had a sip to say the blessing—I’m not a fan of drinking during the week. For dessert was fruit salad and the best chocolate cake! It was so rich and decadent, and I happily savored every bite, guilt free. It’s not like I indulge on cake every day and I did have to start the new year off on a sweet note!

I hope everyone had a great day and Shana Tovah (Happy New Year) to everyone celebrating Rosh Hashana!

See you all tomorrow!

    The foods offered focus on the sweet, in hopes that those consuming the food will have a sweet New Year. Fruits, sweet vegetables and honey abound in Jewish dishes for Rosh Hashanah.

    Adding brightness might alter the mood just a bit,
    but it can improve your play. What is new here is that our hero is
    not quite human; from the physical point of view it is a hybrid willing to further hybridize with the native race.

    It can ultimately help you determine whether or not you want to purchase the game.
