Thankful for L.I.F.E.

I’ve been reflecting on life as it is for me. I was talking with one of my good friends the other day saying how I felt in a rut. But after reflecting on this I’ve accomplished so many of my goals in these past few months! One of my goals was to become a barista…

Changes, Biking, setting My World on Fire

As my bike skidded to a stop in front of the library I felt the chill rain against my face. Rain is such a beautiful thing that cleanses away all the dirt and griminess. I see it as a refresh from what happens on a day to day basis. And Lord knows we all need…

Bom dia, cafe por favor

To know a second language is to enter another world.    My morning began with coffee, faux apple pie oatmeal, and some hard-core Portuguese lesson. So, for all my lovely oatmeal connoisseurs. Date Inspired Apple Pie Oatmeal: 1/2 c. oatmeal 1 c. water dash salt 1/2 chopped apple (I used Gala, but any other sweet…

Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Cumin Tacos

As I crunched into the crunchy cucumber I taste a mix of cumin and paprika. Tonight I had tacos. Taco Friday; I think tacos should be celebrated on more than Tuesday 😉 Here’s my tasty taco recipe: 2 tacos splash of olive oil  1 sweet potatoes black beans dash cumin dash paprika dash salt &…

Triumphs against the pedals

As I rounded the corner I hopped of as the wheels skidded across the uneven gravel. I exercise all caution when coming around corners on my bike. Today I rode 4 1/2 miles, 13 hills and I’m feeling pretty darn proud! I thought a lot during my ride about limitations and relationships and how few…

Steps towards Academic Integrity

The fields of college options are littered with privates, public, online, and on-campus. I’m swimming through the possibilities and there’s so much I barely can lift my head above water for a gasp of air. It will all be worth it in the end though I know. And I have short-term memory loss from my…

Adventures through North Carolina

My adventures through South Carolina were extraordinary as I stepped onto the glistening sand and felt the waves ripple and tickle my feet with their salty licks.   This was my sight as I rounded the corner from a lovely dinner at Poogan’s Porch on Queen street. At Poogan’s Porch, I had a mule and…

Holding Tight

The letters twist to and fro. As if they knew the scribes struggle…

A Good Day

Today was a good day I woke at 6:22 made my bed. Had a great time doing my hair and makeup. Then I went to the coffee shop I work now with a friend. We had their specialty house coffee. The coffee shop has such an awesome atmosphere and Anne’s child Martin came with us…

The Calm after the Storm

The calm after the storm Broke even Across the sea leveling The furious silence. The waves before the storm, Crashing Colliding Shifting the weight of giants. The calm after the storm Reassuring and calming. Wrapped in the warmth of waves. The calm after the storm Shattering the stillness Reaching, pulling, Yearning. The sea finds us.

Vegetarian lifestyle

Lunch with kale, cabbage, beans, carrots, paprika, rosemary, carmelized onions and balsamic rice.

Frankly

Frankly I don’t quite have this tortilla making thing down. I need to work on the whole finesse of rolling. Haha, well, I dare say I’m in a rather interesting place as far as that goes as I’ve been using a glass, haha. I like to think I’m pretty good at taking unconventional approaches when…

Drying Herbs for Humility

Hello, my friends, Sunfat at last whew! Let me tell you it’s quite nice for this refresher.I’ve been relaxing today. Which is quite nice. I jumped into a book called The Inner Castle. It’s by St. Theresa of Avila. I’m not sure I like the translation but we’ll see. I find myself becoming a little…

Thursday Workout

Good evening all! I felt in a tiny slump tonight after work and cooking/cleaning house. Do you get these slumps? Well, my quick remedy is a workout. I must say I thoroughly enjoy home workouts. I’ll share some fun ones that I do. Btw, my friends think I’m weird for liking prisoner squats. But, I…

Time on Thursday

As I breathed in wafts of hot espresso overcame me. Gingerly stepping into the bustling coffee shop I clocked in and began a day, full of, well… espresso and pizza. All day was pretty busy which is really good of course. Not very many espresso drinks today but a lot of smoothies. Curiously enough. A…

Coming along just Fine

Hello all just checking in for a culinary update. Ha! Its smelling quite good in my kitchen. Tonight I’m using a lot of spices and vegetables. Might as well live up to my name as a vegetable farmers daughter, right? I’m cooking a Balsamic steamed garlic vegetable stirfry with parboiled rice. Simplicity is elegance in…

Harmony and Dissonace

Dissonance surrounds me like a hungry line circling. Dissonance sneaks under my pillow to haunt my dreams. Dissonance is there. So is harmony, a way of in the distance, but she’s there. Harmony. Smooths the rough ridges of a dissonant life.

Bulletproof and Loaded

I feel so overwhelmed and absolutely over the top excited. Now for my next journalism venture. I’m so excited I’m climbing the ladder of…

Life as it were

It’s a funny thing. Throughout the years we pick up different cultures and prerogatives. I,have recently been interested in learning more about the Spanish culture, specifically, I’ve been experimenting with cooking Spanish foods. I just made my first batch of tortillas!
