Curried Chickpea Salad

Today I went to the library. I walked in and it smelled like stress. Stress and cramming and late nights and flashcards.

But, I didn’t stay. I didn’t sit even though I need to work on my research paper and study for the GRE. Instead, I waltzed over to the movie section and perused. Slowly. If I ever get a movie during the school year, I feel awkward and rushed. But today there was no one at the library so the movie section  was all mine.

I got several movies, including Pride & Prejudice, The Bucket List, and Dear John. I only made it through the D’s (and grabbed Pride & Prejudice because I saw a preview for it before watching Prime last night and have craved it ever since) but I glanced at the TV series and…

It was amazing. Unreal. Unbelievable. They had all the seasons of Gossip Girl, The OC, Grey’s Anatomy… You name it. I think I’ve found the answer to my upcoming week alone and the break to my GRE studying.
