Cookies are evil and so are timers and finals….

Caption: We revived my old homemade (thanks Mom!) Oreo costume from elementary school, out of the garage, over Christmas. Paloma is trying to eat me 🙁 This picture fits this post perfectly.

First of all, I have my patented amazing ” Dominatimer” method of helping others study. Basically I force my classmate to determine their goals for the night, prioritize them, assign each goal a certain amount of time, and then set timers. This has worked very well with many classmates, and it even works via online! A timer is a GREAT *OT* tool!!!!

Second, my diet has been abnormally poor lately. I’m normally the low-sugar low-fat high-fiber organic no preservatives kinda girl that drives everyone crazy by judging their cheetos and Pepsi as I eat my organic fruit leather or something. But lately I’ve turned into a sugar fiend and in all honesty, I have primarily been surviving on cookies and spoonfuls of peanut butter, for the last month or so. Oh of course the occasional piece of fruit, toast, normal protein is in there too, but seriously, there have been days where I have nothing to eat but cookies and peanut butter. And – this is horrible – I bought my friend Doug Samoas to send to England for his birthday, but I ate them tonight L So anyway, my OT student friends are ready for intervention.

Following Instant Message Chat has been SLIGHTLY edited to remove bad words, but I felt a need to share it so you could all see true OT sisterly love…
