I never shared the memoir piece I wrote for my Food & Writing class last quarter! Hope you enjoy.
I just love that.
Thursdays always feel like my longest day. I get up early and go to school then by lunch I’m home saying hi to Chase and then I’m off to the food bank to stock shelves for two hours. Once that’s over I generally come home and pick up Chase and we go out and do something fun. By the end of the day I’m always shocked that it is still Thursday! And then I freak out that I didn’t fit in a workout. -_- So sometimes I just need to remind myself to relax. It’s my “Friday” night.
I think I’m going to move my rest days to Thursdays for this exact reason.
Here’s the midterm paper I did for my Cultural Perspectives on Food class on Japan. I warn you it is not a literary piece of art. I did not even try to connect paragraphs really. I just answered the questions as best I could and put them in essay form. >.< I wasn’t graded on that at all so I didn’t bother putting the time into it. =/ Just warning you.
I did love doing this project though.
We were shown around a few museums but not always given any history on what we saw. These are some ancient arrows used by samurais. That’s honestly all I can tell you!
This time last year I wrote a series of posts that reflected on my life changing 3 month Japan internship. It really did a lot of good for me emotionally (I stopped having nightmares!) and really helped me come to terms with what an important experience this was. I don’t feel like I have more I want to say about it but in honor of it being two years since I took that fateful flight oversees I am going to have a Japanese Internship Photo (JIP) every day until September. There are a heck of a lot of photos I’ve never showed anyone! They will be completely random; I seriously just closed my eyes and clicked. So here we go!
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I know I will and please feel free to re-read (or read for the first time!) my posts from last year. I really enjoy reliving them.

And now on to the food!
Phew! Today was a really big day. I mean, we actually left the house for like 5 hours! Shocking I know.
Again I got up early to try and chat with my best friend, but alas she was a no show (turns out her alarm was not set!) so I decided to just eat breakfast and get on with my day. Today I felt like something easy and refreshing so I went with cereal. 1/2 cup Kashi Golean Crunch, 1/2 cup Annie’s Chocolate & Vanilla Bunnies, ground flax, blueberries, and dried cherries. All enjoyed with skim milk, of course. ^_^ Yum yum yum.
