25 years of living life and loving it, happy birthday to me!
Trader Joes did not disappoint today during my lunchtime trip there. Picked up veggies and other accessories to make veggie enchiladas tonight with the dude. Also while I was there I was thinking about what I should do for lunch and I stumbled upon this:
Pretty yummy for a quick & easy lunch. For $4.99 I got a pita, 3 falafel, hummus, tabbouli and tahini sauce. It was all pretty good, the falafel was a little dry but I really cannot even complain, it might have been the best tahini sauce I’ve had to date! A sweet meal, fairly healthy (and vegan) for under $5, holla.
This little kitty was found in our parking lot this morning… ASPCA is coming for her in a bit but she’s been so cute to hold all day! Love herrrr, I hope she finds a good home! I’ve never seen or held a kitten before in real life so this made my day… maybe cats aren’t s’bad.
Ok not like I care about the Sharks or the Kings, but man game 3 of their series last night was bananas. Sharks were down 4-0, and rallied crazy hard and came back win the game in overtime 6-5. WHAT. Outrageous! Imagine the Sharks rally the rest of the way and make it to the final 2…
So this guy wrote an article that comes off mildly asshole-like, but I really enjoyed it.
I know that I’m a little bit of a social media junkie, admittedly. I also realize that for the most part this is how it’s all going to go down from here on out. I get really annoyed, especially with people I go to school with who sip the hateoraide for Facebook, Twitter, etc. These people are enrolled in a graduate communication program, how are you going to deny this is the way we roll now!? People didn’t throw a fit when we switched from carrier pigeons to the postal service.
Here’s quick quote from the article, check it out:
Everyone you might still care about in your life, despite distance, work, stress, money, and time—they’re (mostly) all on Facebook. And all there to grasp, with the most minimal of effort. Really. Just click a bunch. If you care about any of these things—socializing, memories, friendships—you should be using Facebook, in spite of all its sour, vexing flaws.
Basically, if you don’t like Facebook, it sounds to me like you don’t like your friends. And what kind of terrible person doesn’t like friends? Even Hitler had friends.
So in the last two months I cut out using Splenda in my coffee, easier than I thought it would be. I was using a sugar free coffee mate at home and if I got coffee outside my house I always went for skim milk (which has been the norm for me for some time now).
But this week I made the switch from all the above to just using coconut milk in my coffee, and I love it. I also ventured to switch my usual yogurt to coconut milk base yogurt. Again, so delicious (which is so ironically the brand name)! I had raspberry flavored today, blueberry tomorrow! It has a sweet raspberry taste and a hint of coconut flavor, love love love.
