Fact: hard life times are made better by puppies. I totally understand John Wick now.
Did you know that dogs can help make your heart healthier? Learned that today
You will never see this, but I adore you and I absolutely love working with you. Your kindness is a balm on my soul, and you remind me of how tiny little things can exude goodness and love. Even your shortest emails make me smile. I'll stop gushing right after I proclaim from the rooftops that the world needs more people like you.
Your friend, Amanda
food Show more
So much food cooked tonight, I feel a deep sense of accomplishment, and like I've managed to adult really hard today.
When all is said and done there will be: roasted mushrooms, cauliflower flatbread, roasted garlic, roasted beets, spicy roasted sweet potatoes.
Tomorrow will be full of salad and microgreens, Korean pickles and kimchi, and if I have time to cook in the evening bulgogi pork
selfie, eye contact, crazy eyes, mask Show more
When my office mates start coming into work sick, I don the mask and invite some well-meaning but often quite annoying ribbing from my coworkers. If you got bronchitis instead of a cold every year, you'd be a weirdo like me, too.

I react calmly in a crisis. My default mode is a dispassionate "handle it." I'm still not sure I've snapped out of it. I'm sore, tired, and despite spending the evening laughing with friends, still feeling emotionally flat. Replaying the incident over and over in my mind as if I could change it somehow.
The glitch are back. Folding my papers and chasing each other across my desk.
My favorite band made socks with bats on them... so now I have socks with bats on them 😍
LED candelabras are something I need more of in my life.
Reminder to look up from the difficult things in my path: 2014 was not a great year in my life. And I just realized that if I had taken my head out of my own sphincter for five minutes I would have learned that Monty Python was doing a farewell performance and could have figured out a way to see them in person (which had long been a dream of mine I thought impossible). https://a.weirder.earth/media/50WcBmbUdE3ralG5sgU
