Nanaw, hot chocolate, and papers

I hope everyone is getting excited for all of the Halloween festivities tonight! I decided that I will stay in this year so that I can actually to do stuff that I want to do. For example, catch up on 90210 and read cookbooks. When I haven't had a lot of "me" time, which is typical around this time of the school year, being around a crowd really irritates me. So, no Halloween stuff for me tonight and I'm perfectly fine with that! :)

I have a big paper due in my cognitive science class in about a week and a half. I'm happy to report that I have roughly 3 pages left to meet the minimum length requirement. I almost didn't think this would happen. About 8 pages into writing the paper I realized that I should have picked another topic. I decided to write mine on the differences/similarities between cognitive and behavioral models of choice. Although I know a lot about decision making, it's definitely not the field I'm most interested in...so this paper has been tedious to write. At least I'm learning a lot! Also, I realized that I'm basically writing a math paper...


I always love sipping on warm drinks while I do work. Somehow, I feel like it helps fuel the creative juices...obviously this is not true haha. Have y'all heard of the "Pick-Me-Up" hot chocolate? It has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee! The only bad thing about single serving pouches of hot chocolate is the fact that I can't add a ton. I love my hot chocolate with "molten lava" floating at the top...as you can see...no lava there, just marshmallows!


Yesterday was really productive...I got just about all of my letter writer's materials together! As you will see, I'm a little OCD when it comes to organizing things...


I'm sure you're wondering what the heck "Nanaw" is? Well...it's a nickname that a certain someone started calling me about a year ago. You see, I have this problem: when the clock strikes 10pm I get a bad case of the yawns...which then leads to me fall asleep shortly thereafter. I mean, I will fall asleep mid-conversation, while watching a movie that I actually want to see, and during various other things. It's quite problematic. James basically decided that Nanaw, in other words a nickname that meant GRANDMA, was fitting. Obviously it stuck because this happens all the time. While this name started because of my tendency to fall asleep early, he also uses it refer to how I hate sleeping in, have to have my meals at certain times, and lots of other things. However, I am happy to report that I didn't go to sleep until 12:30 last night...and I never once semi-fell asleep. I guess today, for once, I won't be referred to as Nanaw ;)

Happy Halloween!
