protein pancakes

It has been almost two weeks
since I’ve been on the Internet — I’m going to tell you what I’ve been up to.

Not much. But then again,
a whole lot.
I actually was somewhat busy — just two Thursdays ago I took my
Chinese final and went to prom (I’ll save that story for another day).
Then, I just sort of dropped off
the face of the Earth.  I worked part-time as a hostess at a cafe, did
some reading (just finished Paper
Towns by John
Green), snapchatted, did some almond butter stress eating, and a whole lot of
wandering.
Yesterday,
I wandered down the street aimlessly, first into a CVS to buy a few pointless
things like tanning oil and Icebreakers gum.  Then I talked to some of the
volunteers collecting signatures outside the metro station for a good while
about string
quartets and the weather.  Then, I wandered downtown and had Mediterranean
style tacos with my mom at 3pm.  Leisurely summer livin’ at its finest.
A few nights ago, I got into bed at 10:10 p.m.  Turned off the
lights.  My room was nice and warm because I never turn the AC on.  I stayed up until midnight just watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s on my laptop and then drifted off to sleep.
It’s like time just slowed down twofold.  My brain cells were burnt and fizzled to a crisp.  The thought of sitting down and writing made my stomach turn.  I ate a lot of Popsicles.
And then I realized that I had not been blogging and felt totally ungrounded and lonely — so I’m back!  I’m looking forward to going on wild summer
adventures and telling you all about them.  I’m going to bake luscious cakes
and eat them and tell you all about those too. I don’t regret my disappearance; I think it was healthy to do a bit of wandering.  Now, I’m ready to get caught up in the world again like I’m known to do and attack whatever comes my way and report to you all about it.
Speaking of attack, this
is total “attack food.”  These protein pancakes have two
ingredients, protein powder, egg whites, and pure power.  Eat these for
breakfast and you will feel like a literal beast for the rest of the day.
With love,
Erica
