So I love to eat food. All types of food. I love trying new foods too! I am the type of person that will try anything, at least once. How do you know whether you would like something or not if you never try it? Well thats how I think, others may not feel the same.
When I was in my undergrad years I had a friend that could cook Samosas very well and she made them all the time. Probably because she knew how much I loved to eat them! The other day I had a craving for some but did not know where to get them so I did a google search and found restaurants that served them but that was not what I was looking for. I wanted to find a store that made them fresh so that I could go and buy as many as I would like and I didn’t have to wait to order them. So with the help of google and my cunning ability to drive and search I came across an Indian grocery store on my way home from work. I initially passed it and I just had to make a u-turn into that parking lot. I pulled in the parking lot praying “Oh God, please let them sell fresh Samosas” and to my surprise they did. I felt like a kid in a candy store. I bought 3 and then went home.
Spicy Potatoes with Peas in a pastry. Delicious Indian food!
If you are wondering how long those 3 Samosas lasted me, let me tell you this it didn’t last long. I got home ate one and then the other and before I knew it I had eaten all 3! Me being the food lover that I am, I hoped in my car drove back to the store and bought 10 more. Thank God they were only 99 cents a piece. I just absolutely love the spicy potatoes and the peas. I swear I could eat these almost everyday. If you have never tried Samosas, I am here to tell you, they are delicious and you should try it at least once. If you are anything like me you will fall in love with them.
That is what I need
To be free
To be me
To let go of my worries
Cast away my fears
Lifes’ daily stressors
Taking a toll on me
I feel like I’m drowning
I can barely grasp for air
I feel lost
I feel unheard
If I could escape
This is where I would be
Somewhere that I can have peace
Relax my mind
And experience tranquility
There’s a pirate who lives in town here. He’s a young white guy, beard, messy dreadlocks, might live on the street. He doesn’t carry a cutlass and he doesn’t wear an eye-patch, but besides that, he’s the real deal – swashbuckling boots, oilskin jacket, tricorn hat, piercings, bracelets, bangles. And a mean frown, most of the time. Or I thought it was mean, till a few weeks ago.
He showed up at this freeform movement circle I go to every once in a while, to get out of my head. It’s in a big dance studio, and the point is to just move, to be myself beyond my mind, beyond all the thoughts shouting at me from the inside out. Don’t dance, you idiot! You’re not doing it right! Look at you! You’re pathetic! You have no idea what you’re doing, so just don’t. Just stop. Get the hell out…

I feel like this sometimes too!
Yes I do like when people call me beautiful or find me attractive but that’s not all to me. There is much more to me. I am strong, smart and funny. I am not stupid enough to think that life would be easier if I wasn’t pretty but damn, I am more than a nice body and pretty face. I don’t like how they act surprised when I do or say something intelligent as I was perceived to be dumb. They judged me.They underestimate me. But I know more than I say, think more than I speak and notice more than they realise. For me, sexiest thing on anybody is Intelligence. And I want my intelligence to be noticed and I work so hard on things but all they see is a pretty face.

I absolutely love this and I applaud him for being fearless and loving the person that he is! He is such a great inspiration to those who have issues with remaining true to themselves while living and working in a world where you are constantly told that you have to conform in order to fit in.
