I've had a long day... this is just going to be a quick post.


Making steel cut oats! Apparently they're really good reheated
so I made a tonne of them!

Breakfast!  I had steel cut oats, protein powder, ground flax,
and molasses
Lunch! This was super yummy and consisted of spinach,
almonds, chicken cooked in toasted sesame oil, and raspberry
walnut vinaigrette

Dinner: This was rather disappointing to be honest. It was
sweet and sour tofu (the sauce was not very good though)
with broccoli (which tasted off) over spinach (which was

What I got up to:
This morning I walked to downtown Seattle from where I'm living. It was a 90 minute walk on roads that were decent but quite busy.

I saw this random cool water plane on my walk!

Once I got there I took a bus tour around the city which was pretty good. It was one of those hop-on hop-off types. I rode it all the way around once and then part way round a second time. The second time I got off at the Sculpture Park and also Pike Market, which was fun. I visited what I thought was the first ever Starbucks, but it turned out that I got the wrong one!

The famous space needle

One of my favourite sculptures at the sculpture park -  it's
an eye sculpture that doubles as a seat!

I was surprised by how much water there was in Seattle. It seemed
like I could see water wherever I was in the city!

The sign for the original Starbucks (not the one I went to!!)

I also got an ORCA card (bus pass), which should make traveling into work on Monday a little easier!

I've also started setting up two trips which I'm excited about. I've decided that I want to really make the most of my time in Seattle. I feel like sometimes I don't fully seize the day and take full advantage of things on offer. As I mentioned I've never been to the West Coast before, and I'm not sure when I'll next be over here, so I want to take advantage of as many things here as possible. The first trip is to Portland, Oregon on July 21-22. I've booked a hostel(!) for the night I'm there and I can get the greyhound bus there for $28. I'm trying to keep the trip as inexpensive as possible because I'm trying to save up a bit for law school and I'm not getting paid much for my internship (we'll see, maybe I'll freak out and cancel my plans). The second trip is to Vancouver in British Columbia. I'm hoping that my boyfriend will be able to come with me and it can be like a vacation for the two of us! He's not sure if he can make it yet, so fingers crossed that that also works out!

Anyway, bed time for me!
