Most people procrastinate by surfing Reddit when they really need to do something, but don’t want to. Others play video games or stalk their friends on Facebook, but I procrastinate in a “productive”–sadly not an academically productive–way by feeding myself. Hi, I’m Tiffany & I’m addicted to “stress cooking”. While I should be studying for the dreaded MCAT (Medical College Admission Test), I often find myself in the kitchen, facing the pantry looking it up & down as if I were checking out Ryan Gosling. I tell myself I’m just looking for a snack, but I’m really just wasting time because I don’t want to feel defeated trying to figure out translational motion as its relevance to medicine is as relevant as twerking is to ballroom dancing.
“Tiffany, go sit down & study,” I tell myself.
“Okay,” replies Playtime Tiffany.
An hour later, I’ll have whipped up some monstrosity of a meal that no one is going to finish. Pictured above is one of my many products of “stress cooking”. If it’s not an entrée, it’s an hors d’oeuvre of sorts such as pumpkin granola bars. This time around, it’s a Two-Cheese Pumpkin & Spinach Casserole with capellini, mushrooms, baked beans, & almonds. It was pretty delicious, but half of it is still sitting in my refrigerator untouched. I wouldn’t be able to supply a recipe because I threw in pretty much everything I had sitting around into a pan & baked it. I’m not sure what’s a bigger problem – the fact that I talk to myself & separate my personalities into Playtime Tiffany & Studious Tiffany or exercising my culinary skills in lieu of studying. You’re right, I’m totally fine; I’m definitely not crazy or anything.
I’m supposed to pretend I don’t have a life outside of the MCAT, so I apologize for any future neglect. Studious Tiffany must murder Playtime Tiffany in order for her life to get back on track. In case any of you need a new salad recipe, I’ve recently added a new one.
Josh told me my previous background clashed too much with my banner so I changed it back to my previous gray one. Anyone else think the green clash looks better than the current gray one? Click for reference. Back to studying, my pretties. Thanks for all of your constructive input.
