Cultural Views of Food

This might seem like a topic that has come out of nowhere, but truly, it’s been a subject matter that’s been on my mind for a long time. Because of the complexity of the issue and how food interrelates to other things like body image and culture, I wasn’t sure how to talk about it.…… Continue reading Cultural Views of Food

Seafood Fanatic

My aunt came over to stay last weekend. She’s one of my relatives who I’ve always liked so although my social anxiety nerves were twitching, I was sure I would be fine. After an early drive into New York from Jersey, she popped out to spend the day in Midtown Manhattan with an old college…… Continue reading Seafood Fanatic

Early Bird

The first day getting back to New York on Tuesday morning, I pretty much felt fine with the shift in time zone until about 3 PM when I started getting very tired. Eating an oatmeal dinner at 5 PM, by then I could barely keep my eyes open! I can’t believe I was dozing off…… Continue reading Early Bird

A Feeling of Dread

Judging from the featured photo I chose to use for this post, you would think whatever I have to discuss today is terrifying and horrific. In a way, it is. Social anxiety sucks. Anxiety sucks. Having both at different intervals throughout my day to day life is more than just a hassle or a nuisance.…… Continue reading A Feeling of Dread

What To Eat? πŸ˜Š

I’m all over the place when it comes to eating meals! This post will be more about the types of foods I like eating for meals, rather than foods meant for a healthy diet. Breakfast is the hardest part of the day for me because I never know what to eat! I consider myself an…… Continue reading What To Eat? πŸ˜Š
