Tonight was not a good night in class.

I feel like a horrible person who is negative and is not liked by anyone.
There is no point in being nice to people.
The only thing there is, is hurt.

I'm all for covering for you once or twice, but this is getting to be an every night thing. You know you rock and your awesome, but DOOOD work on your time management.

Sincerely,

Vegan Pumpkin Pie - serves 8 (but the ingredients are for 2 pies)

1 29oz can 100% pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
1 16oz container silken tofu (mori-nu makes a good one)
1 1/2 cups organic sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 vegan pie shells (or make your own)

1. Mix pumpkin puree, sugar and salt together, then add spices
2. blend tofu and pumpkin mixture together in blender (*)
3. Pour into pie shells, put in oven on baking sheet
4. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, then turn heat to 375 for 45 minutes
5. Cool, chill, ENJOY

* = my blender was on the small side, so I had to blend it in batches. The recipe makes more than enough for 2 pies, mine we sitting up over the pie crust a bit, and I had some pie filling left to enjoy in a bowl.

Two words: NOM NOM

Addictions counseling is going to be a lot of fun. Challenging--500 pages of reading in 7 days, and covering all that material in 4 days from 8-5. But the drugs covered are an interest of mine, and we're going over more than the psychology of addiction; we're looking into family dynamics and the defense of addictive behaviors, and the codependency and personality issues that accompany abuse. We're required to attend two NA, AA, OA or Alanon meetings, and either design our own intervention model for implementation, or do a diagnosis and treatment planning as if we were submitting it to a judge. Fun-ness.

Addictions have interested me for a while--drug, alcohol, food, sex. They're fascinating. I can't articulate any better right now. I have Eating Disorders at 5-8. Our first assignment is a collage! Not very many grades in the class, it's more knowledge acquisition. ROCK.

Whup ass thunderstorms. Whup ass. Flash flooding, the whole nine yards. At least now I don't have to water my plants. Have had a migraine of 8-9 intensity all day long, and I'm sure even though it's gone now, it will come back. Going to be selling an assload of jewelry on ebay soon, and then some clothes and other stuff. I've got entirely too much stuff for this house. Going to be getting that papasan chair sold even if it kills me.

Instead of being anal that I didn't get three As, I'll be satisfied with a B- in Theories, A+ in Abnormal, and an A- in Career Dev.

That is all.

Dinner tonight was most excellent!

Chicken tenders marinated in balsalmic vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, S&P, lemon juice & diced tomatoes cooked in chicken broth and the marianade, and some white rice cooked with chicken broth, and some toast.

Excellent, and delicious. If I could figure out how to post a pic with LJ service, I would.

Need some confidence. [Feb. 16th, 2009|11:26 pm]
Okay, I need somebody to tell me it's okay to sell or trash the stuff in my closet that doesn't fit. I know I should and I kinda want to, but I need a push.
















...and tell me to stop holding on to the fattie clothes for fear I might have to wear them again.
