How’s that for an odd title? I hope you all had a nice weekend! Mine was a mix of relaxing and busy, so I guess that’s good. This is my last week of class before Thanksgiving break. Miami gives us a full week off for Thanksgiving (which I actually hate because then we have to go a week later in December) so I’ll be flying up to the New England this weekend to start my holiday. That in itself is pretty marvelous :)
Backing up to Thursday….National World Kindness Day. To celebrate World Kindness Day, I took part in KIND‘s company-wide initiative and handed out flowers (with a note) and bars to people on campus. Across the country we distributed more than 35,000 flowers and bars total! The goal was to inspire kindness and invite others to join the KIND Movement. Just another reason I love my company.
Although I did look like an out-of-place florist walking around with bags of flowers, people were so appreciative and happy. It’s these small things that can make a difference in our world.
But I officially need to clean my car as it looks and smells like a flower delivery truck- ha!
The weekend was all about group projects. Fun stuff, right? For 3/5 of my classes, I have a group project worth at least 30% of my grade (one project is 50%…). Anyone who’s ever been in college (or school for that matter) can attest that group projects can be a miserable experience. Yes, it’s hard to coordinate meeting times around everyone’s schedules but it’s even harder to trust that people will do the work…correctly! That’s my Type-A coming out. Let’s just say I will be very glad when these presentations are over in December!
One good (and tasty) thing to come out of my weekend? Almond butter + oats + honey + cinnamon balls. I was hungry and wanted something different to snack on so I decided to do something with the almond butter jar in the back of my pantry. Even though it’s “healthier,” almond butter just doesn’t compare to peanut butter for me. I like the taste of it but don’t go through jars as quickly as I do with peanut butter. But now the jar is empty because of these:
So easy and I will be making these more often. Next time I’ll add other “extras” like chia seeds or dried fruit. Any suggestions for good combinations?
Hope your Monday is off to a fantastic start!
Favorite thing from the weekend?
Tell me your best or worst group project experience…
