Buddy's talk~~

How was everyone's Thursday? Excited because it was just one day to Friday? Mine was great not because my eats were specially yummy, not because my work was productive, but because I could catch up with my best buddy!~ ^_^ He's so fun to talk with. We talk about economics (he's in the program too), about relationships, about other friends, and also gossip!! haha...yeah~ you can gossip with guy friends too!! He always makes me laugh so much!! It's definitely a different kind sense of humor than my Chinese friends.... (oh..he's from Argentina as well). I kind of like the fact that I can enjoy both culture's sense of humor and both of them consider me exotic! :D The funniest thing is when I first talk to some Spanish speaker with my very accent Argentinian Spanish, they get sooooo amazed and have to open their eyes trying to verify that I look Asian! hahaha..... I really enjoy these moments! I feel so special! ^_^ Do you have any moment that you feel especially special?
Okay. now, the rest of my day which was boring. Woke up almost at 6.30am (9 hs of sleep), too late for a long yoga session because I had to teach at 8am, so I just did 20 min vinyasa flow #1. Breakfast was similar than yesterday's: instead of oat bran, I had 1/2 cup of 5 grains Old Wessex, 1/2 cup almond milk, 2 tbsp egg white, vanilla/cinnamon, 2 tbsp wheat berries, topped with dry dates, GYG and strawberry yogurt.AM snack: a "mundie" and 1 packet of BB.Worked through 1pm for lunch: leftover sauteed lotus with broccoli, scrambled egg with tomato, sauteed bok choy with mushrooms and rice.Dessert was a aduki beans mochi!Worked a little more and get tired, so I switch from research to TA duties: GRADING! I hate doing gradings!!! it takes me forever! but well, it burns less neurons than research.
Overloading on PM snacks: a tiny pear, another paket of BBpineapple (courtesy of my roomie Savanna)and a goji-chocolate muffin
Then I went to meet with my friend, we talked, we laughed and we arranged to hang out this weekend.
Back home at 8.30pm, surprisingly I wasn't hungry due to the big PM snack, so something simple and boring. Blac rice porridge, sauteed edamame with chinese pickles and dry spicy pumpkin.And the best part came later: fage + frozen strawberries + wheat berries!
I had two cups of thisWonderful!!!! This is definitely my favorite dessert so far! You really should try it out if you haven't yet.

Question: do you have a close guy friend? What do you like about him? In my case, I always had close guy friend around because I feel like I'm a boy in some aspects so I can understand them and have fun with them. What I like about them most is their simplicity, honesty and directness.

i have more male friends than female... always hated the pettiness that came with the chicks :)

Becca said...

I tend to get along better with guys but haven't met many here as my jobs have been female dominant.

Thanks! And I'm happy to find the new blog too!

That's one delicious dessert ... I agree!! Have a fantastic day, girl!

VeggieGirl said...

Scrumptious eats!! Hope your Friday goes well!! :-)

Maggie said...

I love aduki bean mochi!! Your eats are so good :)

Bobby was my best guy friend before we started dating (over 3 years ago!). I'm up early today :P I think your sleeping habits are rubbing off on me!

I've always had more close guy friends than girl friends. Maybe because they're less weird about food?

Meg said...

I do have a guy friend that I love to hang out with and just talk over coffee. I get to see him on Sunday...YEAH!

Krista said...

Yay for a great day!!

I find guys much easier to get along with. You don't get the same BS as with women!!

Erica said...

Yayyy! Sounds like you had a fabulous day with great eats! Hope you have a relaxing weekend girl!

Maria said...

Guy friends are the best! Hope you have a good day today!

Coco I am always in love with your foods. They all remind me of home but yet you're in the USA!! You really inspire me to not be lazy and create dishes I love the most. :)

Hmmm I used to have a lot of guy friends before I dated my boyfriend. It's SO sad that I don't talk to them as much because I just don't have that much time and energy. I TOTALLY agree with you, guys are direct and say what they mean. I also love that guys are sometimes "more innocent" than girls and are most of the time, so much more care-free!! Like a child!

coco - that sounds like such a great relationship with a friend like that. my close friends are usually girls, but i do have a couple of good guy friends - their relationships DO seem much more simple... and i don't know, it's nice to take another perspective on things :)

Friday was better than Thursday. :) I do have a close guy friend -- in fact he is my best friend and was my "maid of honor" at my wedding. I just connect with him so well. Luckily my husband doesn't mind or get jealous.

Thanks for the super sweet comment and for stopping by my blog!
I'm excited to read another blog of a grad student, and I think it's great that you're also interested in alternative medicine.

Really nice to meet you, too, and great blog!
