Greet the Sun

I met the sunrise for the first time in months this week, and it felt wonderful! Last week, in addition to starting a regimen of a multivitamin plus fish oil supplements, I decided that I was going to sleep. I was going to put Rip Van Winkle to shame if need be. I knew I was probably sleep deprived, but I had no idea I would clock three 10-hour nights and several naps before feeling awake in the morning for the first time in forever.

Leftovers Made Easy

The only problem I had, using a less sophisticated blender than…

Hello, Internet! This week I’m entering into a very scary phase… Weight loss. Unlike most women, I didn’t give a damn about a lot of superficial things until I was about 17. My wardrobe consisted of various t-shirts and tank tops sporting horizontal stripes, quotes about cats, or logos of newly released video games that I got from working at Electronics Boutique. My favorite feature was my hair, because it was soft and shiny. I didn’t really care about being popular because I had a few really good friends, which was all that I wanted or needed. I didn’t get…
