Have I ever discussed my resounding belief that everyone is faking it all the time.  I’m a firm believer that no one really knows what they’re doing, they just stumble along pretending to know what’s going; some people being better at it than others.  Some people, people that think that they’re worldly and experienced may disagree with me on this one, but I stand by it as a solid theory.  I am definitely one of those people.  Pressure and the possibility of being finger-wagged at is what most propels me to achieve things-things like my homework for my writing class that I have a week to prepare yet more and more find myself waiting till an hour before I need to leave for class to really delve into.  And somehow, and I’m not sure why, it is generally the work that I do with sweaty palms and a ticking clock echoing in my head that turns out to be the best.   I am indeed faking the part of my life where I convince people I’m a responsible adult instead of a hungover college kid.

Having said that, I will say that I’m resorting to Lunner way too often.  I had a fairly filling breakfast and then I wasn’t hungry.  At all.  Eventually, I figured I had to make myself some lunch/dinner before I left for class or I’d be gnawing on my own arm before it was over.  So lunner it was, but looking at my calorie count on The Daily Plate I came in at 932 calories and 31g of fat for the day.  That’s not kosher.  Kids don’t try this at home it’s way too low, women should never really go below 1200 calories a day, and I like to keep things between 1400-1600 calories as starvation really doesn’t suit me.  I’m going to make a concerted effort to not make lunner an ongoing part of my life.  Cute name, bad habit.
