Lately I have been loving on some stir fries with grass-fed beef and cabbage!
Part of yesterday’s lunch:
Stir-fry with carrots, mushrooms, savoy cabbage, and beef.
I’ve also eaten a couple with purple cabbage, which has been popping up on many food blogs recently. I was intrigued. Is it not the prettiest color?

Also, I told my psychology professor a couple of weeks ago that I was reading Divided Minds (which I finished and loved), and he graciously sent me a list of similar books of first-person accounts of abnormal psychology that he has read and enjoyed. I can’t wait to make my way through the list, but I also thought I’d share it with you all.
- Drinking: A love story (Knapp) – alcoholism (I just started this one!)
- Undercurrents: A life beneath the surface (Manning) – depression
- An unquiet mind: A memoir of moods and madness (Jamison) – bipolar disorder
- Devil in the details: Scenes from an obsessive girlhood (Traig) – anxiety
- Wasted: A memoir of anorexia and bulimia (Hornbacher) – eating disorders
- A fractured mind: My life with multiple personality disorder (Oxnam) – dissociative disorders
Have you read any of these?
I also have a running list going of books that have been recommended to me by friends (including many of you!), so I’d better get reading.

Yesterday I finished The Hunger Games series…
The trilogy was pretty good, and I don’t want to give anything away because a major selling point for these stories is suspense and plot twists. I will say that while I enjoyed the books overall and admired Suzanne Collin’s creation of a vivid dystopia, there were a few things that really bothered me about The Hunger Games series as well.
I liked Mockingjay the most. It had the messiest plot construction, but it was also the most jarring of the three books. I was pretty disturbed after reading it, which I always take to be the sign of good writing. Collins’ message really hit home for me there.
I just started this book and I love it so far…
It’s the autobiography of identical twin sisters; one is a psychiatrist and one is a writer and suffers from schizophrenia.
Gosh, if you look at my taste in literature I seem like a pretty dark girl, huh?
Tell me…what are you reading lately?

It’s practicum week in one of my classes. That means a 3 1/2-hour class on Wednesday! The perk is that if your practicum is on Wednesday, you don’t have class on Monday. This strange circumstance provided me with the rare opportunity for a leisurely weekday morning.
I ate breakfast…
Whole wheat banana bread with peanut butter.
…and finished my book…
Little Bee by Chris Cleave (everyone please read this!).
…and then my friend texted me to say that there were two new male baristas working at Saint’s Cafe, so I picked up a second cup of coffee on my way to campus.
Tuesday is back to regularly-scheduled programming. I don’t hate it!
Have a great day!
Jam of the day: Yo La Tengo “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet”
