Studying, studying

Somehow the fall has flown by and the dreaded physics GRE is next Saturday!!  I’ve been studying to some extent since about September, but this weekend kicked off what should turn out to be a week of intense studying.  I think I made good progress this weekend – I condensed all of the really important things into 7 review sheets, which I have hung up around my desk in a desperate attempt at learning by osmosis.

I also took my first full length, one sitting (for 3 hours!) practice test today.  I’ve improved, but still not as much as I would like.

I took a break on Saturday to learn how to make Inarizushi from my friend Althea, who spent the past school year in Japan.  They are fried tofu pockets stuffed with sushi rice, sesame, and shredded carrot.  They were really easy to make and so good!  A perfect lunch with some broccoli on the side.

Fall Break

Last weekend was fall break, so I had a nice, long weekend to relax with my family and boyfriend. We didn’t do too much, but we did venture into DC on Sunday for the National Equality March. It was very cool to see so many people out there marching for something they believe in. We also made banana’s fosters vegan ice cream, based on Vegan Dad‘s vanilla recipe.  We have previously made his chocolate ice cream, and both were delicious.  Sorry for the terrible pictures!
