I forget to blog sometimes and here’s why:
- Life has thrown me a curve ball and I’m trying to deal with it.
- I tend to forget things when I’m stressed out.
- Sometimes, I’m just too exhausted to get the words out.
- It’s okay to miss a day or two.
- I don’t want to give you shitty content.
- Blogging every day is hard sometimes.
- I don’t feel ‘inspired’ – but I know I should force myself to write anyway.
- If my head wasn’t attached to my body, I’d lose that too.
- I’m at school or work and things are just overwhelming.
- Sometimes I need a break and it’s not the end of the world if I don’t write something.
Since I forgot to post yesterday, I decided to do so twice today.
As you might or might not know, I’m a big foodie. I enjoy cooking, especially for other people. It’s no fun to eat alone, but you know, sometimes we have to.
My mom has this saying in Arabic when it comes to food (it translates funny but essentially here it is: “some people have the breath for cooking”. What she means is that some people are just natural at it.
But really though, I like variety in my life, especially when it comes to food.
Here is a list of my favorite comfort foods (in no particular order):
- Mac and Cheese
- Chicken Noodle Soup
- Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits (like the ones you get at Red Lobster)
- Deep Fried Cauliflower
- Mashed Potatoes
- Baked Potato Wedges
- Pie in General
- Cinnamon Rolls
- Strawberry Tart
- Pasta in General
- Carrot Cake
- Cookies in General
- Peanut Butter
- Soup in General
- Grilled Cheese
- Ice Cream
- Multi-Layer Spinach Dip
- Pita Chips
- Nanaimo Bars
- Cheesy-Garlic Bread
- Ice Cream
- Petit Fours
- Stuffed Grape leaves
- Barbecued Foods
- Fresh Veggies

- Anything I’m Craving that Makes me Comfortable.
What are your comfort foods?
I was doing some digging yesterday when I came across one of my bucket lists. This thing is one hundred and fifteen items long (I’ll post it at a later date). I’ve completed nine so far.
I chose a number at random: 11.
Number eleven on that list is dying my hair an unnatural color. Some would argue that being a brunette who has dyed her hair blonde is technically ‘unnatural’ but in my opinion, dyeing it blue, green, pink, purple, or fire truck red is a little more outrageous in regards to its ‘untaturalness’.
This one item is on my list because secretly I’ve been a little afraid to go a little wild with my hair. I question whether it will look good, or if it will match my skin tone or whether or not people will judge me for my decision.
Yes I know that it shouldn’t matter what people think, it should matter if I like it or not. Yet, it still lingers with me. I’ll do it one day and when I do, I’ll tell you all about it.
Last year I made myself a bucket list. Though I didn’t necessarily achieve all of the things on my list, I got to tick a few things.
I’ve been geeking out.
A friend of mine recently got me into playing video games with her. She got me to start small with builder games and moved me onto first person shooter and survival games. It’s quite fun and has proven to be both a hobby and a form of stress-relief.
I got my first tattoo in July.
The experience was interesting to say the least. Upon walking in I was greeted by extremely friendly staff. My two friends and I sat down on one of the couches as I filled out the paperwork while the artist prepped her station. We shuffled through the portfolios on the table as we waited and talked about style and line work as well as designs we liked and didn’t like.
When it was my turn, I hopped up on the bench and laid down while my friends sat in the chairs next to me. The artist was kind, compassionate and soothing. She explained what she was doing as she was doing it and made sure I was comfortable all the way through. We talked about cats, life, adventures, and shared a few good laughs.
The feeling of the needle against my skin was something I didn’t expect. It felt weird and kind of tickled. If you’re wondering, it didn’t hurt a bit. She has the touch of an angel.
Whats on your list?
