I'm grateful for...
Alone time. I had a lot of alone time in November, very willingly, and I felt like it benefitted me as an overall person! I even found that after too many days not alone, I needed that time to be silent with myself.
I work as a bartender in the San Francisco Bay Area, so my job revolves around constant conversation with customers. I'm either telling them about our wines and beers or talking to them about life (bartenders are the best and cheapest therapists). With this kind of work, I find myself a little spent after a few long shifts and start to crave that silence or time with those I'm already really comfortable with. I'm very grateful for that time.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. When I first started this book, I thought it was a sweet, simple story of an out of the ordinary girl who falls in love etcetera etcetera. Well, this is not that book although the author definitely wants you to think so in the beginning.
This focuses on a woman with a very different perspective on life than myself and as it's written from her perspective, I find myself perplexed by her inner thoughts.
Last book I read: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks
Let's be book buds on Good Reads!
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel - on Amazon Prime. My grandma and I watched the first two seasons...a little too quickly because it's so good! I love the look into t his era in such a marvelous city like New York!
Fleabag - also on Amazon Prime! These short 26 minute episodes were easy to fly through especially with such witty humor and plenty of fourth wall breaks (which I love!).
I'm proud of...
I am halfway through my first semester at the University of Alabama. No, I don't go to Alabama for my dietetics degree but it's all online! I am only taking one course right now, which is Food Science and so far I am loving it!
We are studying individual groups of foods like starches and sauces or like fruits and vegetables and really diving deep into them! For example, we have to do a lab each week and for the sauce section I had to make Hollandaise sauce for an eggs benedict.
I'm listening to...
I'm snacking on...
Okay, please don't stop reading after the next two words: Pickles & Cheese.
I conducted a few basal tests in November and during these kinds of tests I am not suppose to have any carbs or anything that could fluctuate my sugars, but I wanted something salty and crunchy sooooo pickles and cheese.
I sliced the pickles length wise and took slices of Tillamook cheddar and made a little pickle & cheese sandwich!
