So, the health quick continues...

I baked some homemade whole wheat pita. It came out pretty tasty!

I made a salad for Kain and I as well. It contains:
White Onion
Red Grapes
Soy Nuts

Topped with a homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette which had:
Fresh Garlic
Black Olives
Balsamic Vinegar
Olive Oil

Who would have thought I'd be using my Magic Bullet for anything including an avacado...let alone breakfast...

But in all sincearity, it really wasn't all that bad!

1 Whole Avacado
1 Cup of Peach Yogurt
Handfull of Frozen Raspberries
1/4 Cup Soy Milk

Pulverize. Eat.

It's almost eleven o'clock, and I sit here at my laptop with a cup of fresh miso in hand (made with fresh onion, scallions, and some handy miso paste- and yes, I know onions are normal. My miso is similar to an onion soup I suppose.). All in all, it took about 6 minutes to make, and now there are 4 dirty dishes (6 counting my soup bowl and spoon).

This is the start of my being aware of what I am consuming (and subsequently, a diet). This all began with our (Kain and I) getting cable TV, which led to him watching the BBC America, which further caused him to see You Are What You Eat, which inspired us both to be more concerned with the various substances we intake on a daily basis to sustain ourselves.

In watching the program myself (he DVR'd some for me to watch today) I found myself constantly in the position of the individual in that I feel a lack of energy, skin problems, and other various unhealthy symptoms...which, are all due to my poor eating habits.

So, hopefully (and with my husband's help), I can curb my desire for BUTTER and REFINED SUGAR (oh, how I love thee both to an unnameable extent!), and move towards an improved intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, lentils, etc...

I think, that, if I require myself to talk about this it will help drive me to not stray from the plan.

...wish me luck?

A start of yet a new blog
A place for my art
A place to spend time
A place to share
A start of something

to finish.

Often, I think that I don't read nearly as much as I did as a child. I would consume books one after the other, tearing through them as...I do gum now. (Really, you don't want to see me chew's...interesting to say the least.)

Then, I started thinking of one of my husbands criticisms. Whenever I sit at my computer, I am always reading blogs. Granted, these aren't of the highest intellectual tier, but none the less, is it not reading? Most of the blogs I read are pertaining to either technology, fashion, or food. Then, I started wondering, even if this is a bunch of useless information, is it not the same as reading Wired, WWD, or Cook's Magazine?! Just as reading a newspaper developed into watching CNN, and now it has developed (for me) into reading MSNBC. It's controlled, it's what I want to read about what is happening now.

So, if anything, I went from reading novels (which I read from time to time) to reading magazines.

Pet Peeve.

Hey, everyone out there that might have a pleat in the back of their dress coat (men and women), or in your skirt, please be sure you take out those HUGE FREAKING STITCHES that hold them together in the store!!

It makes me want to run at you with scissors.

Blogger allows you to randomly surf blogs via the little link at the top of the page that states: Next Blog>>. I consumed about one hour doing such...after all, being so sick, there's not much you can do aside from coughing, sleeping, and surfing the internet.

It was rather curious peering into other people's lives. It was like opening the scrapbook of a stranger you pass down the street. To my surprise, most blogs were about family, friends, or art. Not teenage angst as I would have expected. It was actually rather refreshing.

One thing that I particularly took away from the experience, was that I should carry my camera more.

You have been warned.

So, today I am very ill. However, I'm doing much better compared to earlier today, being that I am actually up and typing on my computer. On top of that, when I opened my laptop today, I saw that the LCD panel is all cracked and ugly. >_> I probably stepped on it sometime this morning since I left it on the floor.

It just sucks.

Hypocrite: n - a person who professes beliefs and opinions that he or she does not hold in order to hide or conceal his or her real feelings or motives

Some might consider me a hypocrite. However, in my defense, I hold the beliefs I profess and I make no intention to conceal those opinions at any time.

It is my opinion and belief that affirmative action in focus of race and/or sex is wrong. Affirmative action is a form of regulating that is very degrading to an individual. In a sense, it's saying "Here, you are going to need some help from us, because, let's face it, you just can't compete on your own."

Simultaneously, since I am a minority (in both race and sex), TONS of money is available for me to use via scholarship. Am I going to turn this down or not apply for it? Well...

I really feel though, that by trying to "equalize" minorities, we have created an enormous imbalance between individuals. Shouldn't equality be complete ignorance to race and sex? Why should we have quotas in order to have a fair balance of minorities, instead of simply the top applicants?

I am convinced that there needs to be an interest group for white males. It would be the National Association for the Equality of White Men. It doesn't have a catchy ring to it...but the details can be worked out later.

the start of my english essay:

Without context, words are only a mere skeleton of an idea. It is context that fleshes out true concept and motive. Context allows us use of homographs (words that have the same spelling, but different meaning), homophones (words that are pronounced the same as another word, but has a different meaning), heteronyms (words that are identical in spelling, but have different pronunciation and meaning), homonyms (words that have the same spelling and the same pronunciation but have different meanings), polysemes (words with multiple, related meanings), and capitonyms (words that change in meaning, and sometimes pronunciation, when capitalized).

Once we develop proper sentence context, there is additionally situational context. I remember learning, when I was five, that it was okay to tell my grandmother that I thought Aunt Peggy was fat, and the issue was discussed somewhat extensively (for a five year old) However, alerting her to this fact myself, I learned, was not the most proper thing a young lady should do.

I had known, for sometime, that iPods were pretty common attire. Whether in the coffee shop or just walking downtown, it seemed everyone had those tiny little pearly white earbuds. It wasn't until I actually owned one that I realized just how widespread they were.

Kain, for Christmas, bought me a lavender 2nd Generation iPod Shuffle. Included, is the standard pair of white earbuds. By owning them, you pick out small details that set them apart: an inch long section of grey at the connection of the wire, and the fact that there is a casing around the connection of the wire to the speaker. At least 90% of peole I see with headphones have Apple headphones. The 10% that do not, most of them still have an iPod, versus any other brand of DAP (digital audio player).

This is shocking to me! The harddrive space you recieve in (any) Apple iPod is up to four times as expensive as an alternative DAP. Trends are a curious thing.

Regardless of my revolation, I adore my iPod shuffle. It's tiny so I'm not worried about it snapping in half, and it has a convienent clip so I don't have to have a sweaty armband when I work out. One gigabyte of memory is more than enough to fufill my needs. I kind of hate the idea of having an entire music library on a DAP...and having to think of what you want to listen to, ect... If I really want to listen to a song that's not on it, it's no big deal for me to wait at maximum, a day to put it on.

This is not to say that I don't see the convienece of a full blown iPod, for example, I can see some cool things to use it for. Road trips, backing up your music, watching tv shows(?), ect...


Procrastination is, perhaps, the most detrimental quality regarding my academic life. However, it is my feeling that if this excess time can be used (somewhat) productively.

It is my hope that, should I get the urge to procrastinate from here on out, I will at least attempt to write a blog post. This will allow me to practice my English composition skills, spelling, and typing speed simultaneously. Suddenly, it's (almost) productive!
