Does anyone else see the perfection of celebrating National Peanut Butter Day (today, January 24) during National Oatmeal Month (January).  It’s a match made in heaven!

During the weeks that I have little schoolwork, I catch a glimpse of what life could be like.  Instead of reading nonfiction, writing papers, and creating presentations, I could spend my weekends reading novels, writing blog posts, and creating fun breakfasts.  While the latter options do sound more relaxing, I realize that I can’t earn a degree just by photographing oatmeal.  I’ll use special occasions (like National Peanut Butter Day) as an excuse to take a short break from schoolwork and practice creativity.
