Embracing the Blogosphere

I have spent more time than is normal on blogging today. I woke up very early (for me) to get ready for my 8:00 a.m. class and get there on time. It was Instructional Technology in Teaching and we already learned how to write some basic html codes. Never thought I would learn that, but I did! It was pretty fun too.

I went straight from that class to a surprisingly engaging Korean history class. I think I'm actually going to enjoy this face-paced, condensed spring term. But anyway, we are also required to start a blog just for that technology class and so I spent way too much time designing that blog. If you feel the need, you can check it out here :) {And yes, I did just implement my awesome html coding skills right there.}

So basically I spent a ton of time figuring out the design for that blog, revamping this blog, and helping Tatiana figure out how to spice up her current blog so that she can use it to document her adventures in Spain. I am certainly loving and embracing the world of blogs.

I also spent a good chunk of my evening cooking dinner (and advance preparing my lunch and dinner for tomorrow). I have been super into cooking and baking lately. I went on cupcake rampage a few weeks ago. I made cupcakes that looked like apples, 2 rounds of spice cupcakes, and some awesome pastel Easter cupcakes too! I'll post some pictures later of my recent baking endeavors, but I think I'll be laying off the sweets for awhile. Not just because I overdosed on sugar in the past few weeks, but also because I'm really wanting to eat healthy this summer! I think I got off to a good start today.

Megan's mini menu of the day--Total whole grain cereal with strawberries and 1% milk, chicken nachos for lunch using shredded cheese made with 2% milk and tomato (surprisingly more healthy than you'd think and very filling too), baked meatballs for dinner. I used extra lean beef, egg substitute, 1 slice of whole wheat bread and some onion. Everything was delicious and so much better for me than fast food, junk food, or any of that packaged garbage that is usually a staple in a college student's diet. Plus, it gave me a great opportunity to roll my sleeves up and get in the kitchen. :)

Later, I watched Step Up 3 with my roomie. Afterward, we had a dance party in our kitchen. It was pretty legit too. It was so amazingly fun though and it was a serious workout. We are planning dance parties all summer.

Okay, well that's pretty much it for now. But before I go, here is my...

Yep, more html code...It's more enthralling than you think.
