Happy Day, people! Perhaps the title of this post should be: "Why you need more pumpkin seed encrusted banana bread in your life" or even "Why banana bread will accelerate your productivity beyond your wildest imaginings."
When coupled with the fact that you are snowed in, banana bread certainly does increase productivity. Eat a slice, study, eat a slice, study some more, eat a slice (warmed this time) - routine is good! I like routine.
Speaking of things in the "non-routine" category, this past week was reading break! A whole week to read then not not then read some more (okay, more routine!) It held beautiful moments, difficult moments, touching moments, and a whole lot of banana bread moments. And really, it was wonderful.
Whether you are thick in the middle of a semester, working full time, or contemplating your next steps, take heart! Whatever task you may have at hand, know Who your source of strength is and that you never, ever, have to do anything alone. (We all need a little pep talk sometimes, you know?)
Much love, Vivi

Reading break is almost at a close, and the final couple of months of my fourth year (!!!) are coming quickly. Knowing the pattern of past semesters, the weeks will both come and zoooom by at lightning speed. That, my friends, is why it is vital, imperative, and of utmost importance to enjoy the day we have as today, to look forward to tomorrow with gladness, and to reflect upon the goodness & joy of days past. Negativity has no place in our schedules. And now, I shall return to the world of human physiology studying and Gogi berry tea drinking - see you soon!
Much love, Vivi
