Shows I’m Currently Watching

  • Gossip Girl: A classic, I’ve watched this 1 1/2 times before but I really wanted a show that was mindless and would distract me from my everyday life.
  • River: This show is different but really fun to watch, it’s basically about a cop that sees dead people that are relevant to his life or cases. It’s really interesting and very different than Gossip Girl.
  • Absentia (Amazon Prime): The main character in this is Castle’s partner from the show Castle. This is super good! I don’t want to give too much away but it’s a mystery/crime show.
  • How to Get Away with Murder: Along with the other two shows, I’m watching this with my family, this is filmed differently, there are a lot of flashbacks but it keeps you on your toes and allows you to make your own guesses and assumptions, even though they’re probably wrong.

My Typical College Grocery List 

If you don’t already know, I recently moved into an apartment for my senior year of college with three of my girl friends. Last year, I lived in a house but somehow almost never bought food. But this year I decided that I wanted to eat healthier & therefore I should go grocery shopping and eat on campus as little as possible (other than when I’m at work and get to eat for free).

I go grocery shopping about every week and a half to two weeks. This is what my typical grocery list includes…

  • 1/2 gallon of 1% Milk
  • Dozen large brown eggs
  • Morning Star Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burgers
    • there’s 8 so I don’t buy these every time
  • Container of Fresh Spinach
  • 1/2 pound of Deli Meat
    • I prefer Roast beef, but sometimes I get Turkey Breast
  • Loaf of Whole Grain Wheat Bread
  • Two bags of steam-in-bag vegetables
    • Green beans are my favorite, especially eating them with some red pepper flakes on top
  • 90-second white rice
    • This flavor has way less sodium than all the others and it’s nice to eat alone, with red pepper flakes, eating as a side, or with some veggies mixed in.
  • Two tomatoes
    • I use these in my sandwiches, I eat them with my eggs, too.
  • Guacamole
  • Apples or plums
  • Three granola bars

I still have a few things from when I moved on September 1st.

  • Almond Honey Bunches of Oats
  • Ramen Noodles
    • these are my backup food. For when I don’t feel good or I’m just too lazy to cook.
  • Peanut Butter
    • I prefer the natural crunchy peanut butter
  • Ketchup
    • I must be doing something wrong because I still haven’t opened my ketchup and I love ketchup
  • Salad Dressing

Because I don’t cook anything other than eggs I buy a lot of the same things. I think this works for me because I do work at the Dining Common on campus so I get to eat there but also I think I save money by keeping it simple. I normally only spend under $40 each time I go.
