It was a peculiarly calm Tuesday morning. I normally wake up to gray sky and the sound of children screaming in the playground across the street. But not today. Today, I woke up to the sunshine peaking through the autumn leaves in my second floor walk-up flat. I hear screeching brakes of a FedEx truck outside. I leap from my bed and run down to my doorman as my box is carried to the front door. It’s here: MY NEW LAPTOP.
Last week, I was taking my usual tube home from work, and as I crammed myself into a nook of the overpopulated train, someone points to me and says the four worst words you can hear: “your bag is leaking”.
My water bottle cracked in my bag and created Lake Michael Kors, population: my now fried laptop.
But today my replacement laptop has arrived from the good old US of A and all is right with my world.
To celebrate and apologize for my week of absence, hear is a pump up workout playlist for you: HERE ON 8TRACKS.
Today’s early dinner: red coconut curry eggie stir fry with mushrooms grilled tofu and a side of hangover and bad decisions.
I simply couldn’t undo how ratchet I looked this morning, so my day was spent cooking and skyping my friends back in ‘Murika ALL while simultaneously binge-watching cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies.
Yeah, you could say I’m living the dream.
In my short few years of not eating meat, I would say I get asked the top 3 questions at least once a day, and all the others scattered variously throughout time. There are much weirder ones than these, and I have never understood people’s obsession with people that don’t eat the same thing as them. But here we are.
To clear the record as well… Yes, I miss bacon. No I don’t have an iron deficiency. No, I’m not a member of PETA. And yes, I can do it because I’m a majestic unicorn mermaid who can do anything!
I heard about this movie a couple months ago and added it to my list of movies to watch. But like usual, cheesy romantic comedies and dystopian action films took precedence and this documentary about the American food industry went on the back burner. UNTIL TODAY. *cue music evoking how intense we should all feel*
For those of you who haven’t heard of the documentary, it follows several obese children through their struggles of losing weight, while focusing on the severe issues with sugar, chemicals, processed “foods”, and large company control in the American food industry.
I found it to be an interesting watch. While I already knew a lot of the information they were giving out because of my own research and interest in the topic of nutrition, it could be eye opening information for a lot of Americans and other viewers worldwide.
The best part for me, was the call-to-actions at the end, giving clear examples of things everyone can do to improve their health, children’s health, and preventing the obesity epidemic from continuing.
Whipped this one out this morning in honor of me FINALLY having a gym membership at the gym I wanted in London. Welcome to the grind.
Hello pretty sparkly kittens! So as most of you know, I took a mini trip to Amsterdam this weekend. One of the few negatives about living in Hawaii, is that in order to go anywhere new, you have to fly at least 5 hours to reach another piece of land that isn’t Hawaii. So during my 3 months in London, I am trying to go to ALL THE PLACES. This weekend, it was Amsterdam, and let me tell you, it was an experience.
