(via rulesformyunbornson) i love this! my mom used to use this strategy on us when we wanted a snack. “You can have any and as much fruit as you want!”
i love salsa. for awhile i was eating an entire container of fresh salsa nearly everyday, and i had to quit cold turkey because the acid was giving me terrible stomach aches. plus it was getting expensive—the kind i like, fresh from the deli, was kind of putting a dent in my grocery budget. so i tried making my own. it never turned out as delicious until i found this recipe. it was...

i was never an athletic child. actually, anything involving strength, coordination, speed or exertion made me feel incapable and insignificant. from a young age, i decided i “couldn’t do sports,” so i never did—and for the most part, i got away with it. i was always the one who sat on the sidelines during pick-up games of ultimate frisbee or soccer. save for one semester of...
you all dodged that bullet
the first thing i thought when i heard Beyonce’s “sweet dreams” was, “wish i was a really incredible dancer so that i could choreograph a little routine to this song and upload it to youtube.” sometimes i make myself literally LOL. but seriously. i guess the next best wish is to be in a zumba class so maybe the instructor would use this song and i could pretend i knew...

I've been dismayed to discover gluten in:
most soy sauces (but Braggs is a good alternative) some ketchup brands almost everything on taco bell’s menu (up until two weeks ago i was still secretly munching soft tacos once in a while… does that make me a bad person?) sticky rice snacks from trader joes (they’re supposed to be RICE!) kit kat bars, the only candy bar that i like.
until sunday evening. although i might try to fly standby so i can get home a little earlier. i love it here but there’s one big issue i have with this city that i’d completely forgotten about: i am terrified of pigeons.

would you stand up and walk out on me
sometimes, the very thing you don’t want to happen is the thing that does happen. for example, as of this week i am no longer eating gluten. i’ve had several chronic (minor) health issues that i’ve always hoped weren’t related to a gluten allergy/intolerance. but they probably are. so. i’m doing a three-week no-gluten trial run, and already four days into it i feel a...
