Today was an exciting day for me.
I don’t think most other people would find it quite as exciting, but I take what I can get.
For starters, I finally submitted my research abstract to present at a psychosocial oncology conference in the Spring. Good thing because they are due tomorrow. But also good because that means my project is mostly done… Minus manuscript and post-hoc test doing.
Another check mark off the residency have-to-do list.
I just have to wait to see if it is accepted. I hate waiting and wondering.
I really don’t like rejection.
But, at least it is done and now I can start hammering out the manuscript (I feel like I have things backwards) and my presentation for Research Day in a few months.
I have to start working on my next project soon, though. The fun never ends.
In other exciting news today, Patrick bought me a Greek salad for lunch yesterday while he was picking up our food contribution for D-Group last night. The whole lunch thing was pretty exciting, but what really took the cake is that said salad contains black olives.
I don’t like black olives.
But, I didn’t have salad dressing and the lettuce that had touched olive tasted better. I accidentally ate an olive in my pursuit of flavourful lettuce (I blame working on questions for teaching tomorrow while eating on this error).
It was delicious.
I became quite confused. I mean, I love green olives, but I hate black olives. I hate black olives on my pizza, so I guess I thought I didn’t like any black olives. But this was good. Really good.
I ate another.
I ended up eating all of the olives.
I am puzzled by this discovery.
I feel like I need to test this whole black olives being delicious hypothesis next time we go out to eat.
