They were given to me by a little boy at the church I tutor at on Tuesday nights. (I'm not Christian, but who could say no?)
It's a program solely maintained by a very kind couple, to help kids that are less fortunate than I am with their schoolwork, and I definitely enjoy the feeling I actually did something meaningful and contributed to this world. Call it suburban girl's guilt, whatever, but I am grateful every day for the opportunities I was born into and my parents have worked hard to provide me with.
Now that I've said something that isn't totally nonsensical and doesn't make me sound like a spoiled brat...
Proceed with the announcement:
I've gotten an Academic Letter this year for maintaining an A- average or higher; my grades aren't where I exactly want them to be right now (yes in stereotypical asian fashion, I don't consider an A- an A, and anything below that is worthy of a total hair-pulling freak-out session) but I'm still pretty psyched about the acknowledgement of my efforts.
Not that this makes up for walking around in a zombielike state all year due to a vicious cycle of too much caffeine and not enough sleep.
But I can't complain (
Anyways, just thought I'd try to convince y'all that eating chocolate, working out, and taking pictures of grapes aren't all I do in life.
Since it's Friday and I don't have any after-school activities today, I did a 30 minute pilates strength routine
and then knocked out 55 minutes of cardio kickboxing.
Planning on heading over to my friend M's house tonight for some "profound pizza."
I won't actually be eating any pizza though since mom made dumplings and I just couldn't hold out...
The specks in it are from the whole wheat flour my mom uses; she uses 1/2 AP and 1/2 whole wheat for the dough.
Happy Friday the 13th y'all!
