Getting Creative

Where did this day go?!? I have been working all day long but I feel like I haven’t made any progress. I am working on a giant research paper that is due on the 23rd but I hate researching! I am a very goal-oriented person. I like knowing what I need to do, doing it, and feeling that sense of accomplishment when it is done. This works great when it comes to problem sets or reading assignments, but is definitely not the case with research—there is always more out there to find. I have read countless sources today but feel like I am no better off than I was this morning. Ugh. 

Anyway, if you thought Passover was hard before—try it with no kitchen and no groceries! I had to get very creative for my dinner tonight!


Yoga was great, as always. We did the Ashtanga series today which is my favorite, I did it a lot this summer so I am very familiar with the poses and therefore can zone out and really focus on my practice without wondering what is coming next. 

After yoga it was hard-core study time. I grabbed a quick piece of matzo as soon as I got back to my room and then I snacked on some yogurt and a larabar while doing research at the library. 




So what can you do with matzo as your only choice for carbs and a tuna pouch as your only protein source? Make a matzo tuna melt of course! Along with some cucumbers. I’m definitely not making it as a Food Network Star with this but I guess it did the trick! My poor tummy is not happy with all this matzo though, we’ll just leave it at that. Boy will I be happy when I can eat my normal foods again!


Well night #2 of the After-Dinner Challenge was simple–even if I were hungry, I have nothing left to eat! Literally: I finished my matzo at dinner, have no veggies, nuts, and just have an apple and yogurt which I need for breakfast tomorrow! I better get to the grocery store ASAP or else I’m going to find myself on a severe, yet unintentional, diet!

Ok, back to the never-ending research. Hope you all had a painless Monday!

    Good luck with that research, I guess it’s one of those things you have to just LOVE to learn, in order to like the process and I know as a senior, you are so burned out! You can do it though 😉

    Get some groceries ASAP girl! haha jk, you’re being quite creative, what a good little experiment!

    1. There is WAAAY too much butter on that first matzo.
    2. FYI, they do now make whole wheat matzos!

      1. It’s actually “fake butter” spray, but thanks for your concern!
      2. I know–and it tastes even worse than the regular, isn’t that sad when that happens. Thanks for presenting the information in such a great way though, you should look into a career in advertising or marketing, you’re a gem : )
