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.

Day 11: Your current relationship, if single discuss how single life is
So if you all have read any of my previous post you know that I am in a new relationship with an awesome guy. We have only been together for 8 months but it feels like I’ve known him all my life. 4 years ago I would have never thought that I would be here right now, in a relationship with someone that I feel I am going to spend the rest of my life with. We both want the same things out of life. We both want to get married and have children and the fact that he sees himself marrying me and raising children with me lets me know that I mean the world to him. He is such a good guy. I know I finally caught a keeper. And to top it off he is not a womanizer like the majority of my exes, so I don’t have to worry about him cheating and tons of different women! Which is actually a relief for me.
My current relationship is different than any other relationship that I have had before
My boyfriend is really caring and protective. He loves making sure that I am safe no matter where I am and who I am with. Which is something different than I am used to but something that I really love about him. He is just extremely sweet and loving! I love how he listens to me when I am rambling off about work, especially on those days when my clients have had bad days. He knows how much I love the work I do and he is always there with a listening ear. He supports me in everything I do.
But just like any relationship everything is not peachy
There are some things about him that irritate the crap out of me sometimes but I wouldn’t trade him for the world. He tends to jump to conclusions sometimes about things and has the nerve to get an attitude. We have two different types of communication styles which can lead to minor and pointless arguments sometimes. Sometimes when I am frustrated and angry about things he is super positive. I know some of you may be reading that and saying to yourself “why is this something that would irritate her?”. It’s ok to be positive but sometimes I just want him to just let me be angry or frustrated. Like I just want to be able to vent sometimes and not having someone always telling me stuff. Nonetheless, I love how he builds me up and how proud he is of me!
I absolutely love this man!
Learn to love without condition. Talk without bad intention. Give without any reason. And most of all, care for people without any expectation.
Day 10: Your views on drugs and alcohol
I do not have a problem with alcohol. I think that it is good to have when you have had a long day at work and you just want to unwind afterwards or there is a party and your drinking and enjoying yourself! I love a good Sangria or a glass of wine. I am a wine enthusiast and I love wine! The problem comes when you drink in excess every day, all day. That becomes bad for your health in the long run.
But to each it’s own…..
On the other hand, when it comes to drugs I do not do them. The only drug that I do not have an issue with is marijuana. I believe that it has a lot of benefits for those who have cancer and other diseases. Also, it can help people who have trouble focusing be more focused and on task. I do not believe that it is harmful to your body. The only side effects of marijuana is that it makes you sleepy and hungry. All these other drugs that people are using like LSD, crack, cocaine, etc. those drugs are really harsh to your body and your health.
As I stated before to each it’s own…
