So its been a while folks and lots of new things have happened.
First, Joey and I got into AMC’s The Walking Dead. We fell and we fell hard. In fact it was like we had both taken a flying leap off the edge of a cliff and into the world of zombies and screwed up morals. As die-hard Daryl Dixon fans and lovers of all things in the Ricktorship, we both can talk for hours about why Carol killed Lizzie or how amazing Carl is.
Second, I stopped eating added sugars. This includes cakes, cookies, ice cream, frozen food, fast food, less-starches and carbs. The aim was to eat more whole foods like fruits and veggies. Joey joined in this past weekend, limiting her food choices yet again (she’s a vegetarian for any who didn’t know). Suddenly I had to get creative with what I put into my mouth. Leftovers became my best friend and I was ecstatic to realize my portions sizes dropped along with my intake of the crap most Americans eat. I had more energy, was warmer, happier and way more adventurous when it came to trying new foods. Today we baked sugar-free muffins and they actually turned out pretty good! Here’s the recipe if any of you would like to try to make them yourself.
Thirdly, I was invited to join a childhood friend in the Dominican Republic this upcoming summer. She called me up one day and once my parents had agreed to send their eldest child overseas for a little over a week, I signed up for what would be one of the most exciting adventured of my life. The excursion includes zip-lining, climbing a mountain, beach time, helping locals with water and housing and just generally having the time of our lives.
Lastly, I take over my school paper in two weeks as editor. I am terrified out of my mind and excited to unlock the mysteries of running my own newspaper. I finished the templates and designs for my paper last week but am scared to actually print it. Wish me luck, I guess!
From the world of the not-so-ordinary,
