What Have I Been Up To?

Playing: The Midway State-Paris or India
Reading: Dark Matter Core, Left Behind From Wreck Between Massive Clusters of Galaxies, Defies Explanation 
I haven't been up to much really other than a lot of eating and reading. Trying to read more, since during school, they fill my schedule with so many boring plays and textbooks to read that I decided I needed to have time to read whatever I wanted instead. Here are just some photos that I took and wanted to share.
Since I'm the picture of American healthiness, I ran off to McDonald's to grab a snack the other day. I got my favorite Angus Third Pounder with Swiss cheese and mushrooms along with a small order of fries. Tried the Shamrock Shake for the first time and I actually think it's pretty good. The minty flavor keeps it "fresh" even though it's a milkshake, which is as gluttonous as anything.
I've also been stopping off at my favorite tea shop quite a bit lately to try all their different teas and to warm me up, when it's cold outside. My favorite so far is the almond milk tea, but I do enjoy most of the milk teas. Do any of you know if winter melon and taro milk teas are any good?
Also, I found the art magazine section at Barnes&Noble, so I bought the two that interested me the most. I really like the thick, glossy pages with the bright prints and artist interviews. Also, the copy of Artbox includes a section with cool things you can buy like a rubber band for your iphone that's really a macro lens or a lamp that comes with different sheets of glass to change the color plus the brightness, but looks beautiful at the same time. Just tons of fascinating stuff really.
I've also been addicted to this instant mi goreng, which is just so tasty. My friend, Sarah, introduced me to this and I've been hooked on it since. It's just to easy to make and super delicious, especially when you mix in some sort of pork in it like Spam or pancetta. Probably eat this after school two days a week now.
And finally after trying some amazing banana pudding at this BBQ restaurant, I attempted to make my own. Sure looks pretty, but it didn't taste as good. Needed more flavor, but it looks nice, right? A+ for effort? I just realized my whole post has to do with food. I suppose I should've named this "What Have I Eaten?" instead. I guess I'll ask an expected question and ask, what are you eating/drinking right now? Anyways, do any of you have delicious banana pudding recipes?  I would love to try to make a better version!
