First Foodie Find Entry!
I have three things to share with you guys.
I have recently discovered this while I was on a hunt for sugar at Trader Joe’s. Trader Joe’s, in particular, has an array of really weight-adding sweets (that I try my best to not get tempted by, especially their cookies!). However, while looking for their gummy bears I found these! They’re good if you refrigerate them, like I don’t like chocolate that has a super creamy texture, especially when it’s warm, as it’s been lately. I prefer crunchy types of chocolate. This was one of those candies that didn’t make me feel super bad about eating chocolate. It’s dark chocolate! Yet, it’s not a strong dark chocolate type of bitterness… unless I didn’t detect it (probably from all the dark coffee I regularly drink). Inside is a mixture of blueberry, acai, pomegranate, and cranberry… the inner texture is okay for me. It sorta sticks to my teeth, but I overlook it because I like the taste.
Okay, so why is there a jar of mayo? I for one have had bad experiences with mayo. The texture and smell freaks me out. I don’t know, the consistency of it is unattractive. And, I did have an allergic reaction to expired mayo when I was a kid. However, I love my tuna salad enough to over look the downside of mayo. I make some bomb tuna salad. ^^ This type of mayo is way more tastier than the original kind. I don’t know if it’s the olive oil added, but I didn’t have to add anything extra to my tuna salad today to make it taste better. My roommate made chicken salad with the same mayo yesterday and truly, her salad also tasted better than the ones she previously made. I actually went back for thirds, which is what I usually don’t do. Lastly, this mayo didn’t have a smell. I am very much happy with my purchase.
KIMCHI FRIED RICE! It’s incredibly delicious! I found it while getting the Japanese fried rice in Trader Joe’s frozen section. It has a lovely kick of spiciness as well as sourness. I love it! However, I do add already cooked white rice while heating/cooking so I don’t get an explosion of tastes. I like to have my taste buds mildly excited. haha.
I think this is it for this week. I recently haven’t found anything else that has excited me other than these 3.

Initiating a new phase
I’m starting to see that my blog has turned into an emotion wreck of entries. Well… let’s change things up a bit.
The thought occurred to me this week that I should start blogging about the things I find, especially new foods. There are some delicious things out there worth mentioning. I live relatively near a Trader Joe’s so I frequent the store more than I need to and I have found some interesting things there, like KIMCHI RICE! It’s in the frozen section of the store. It has an interesting taste and kick to it. I’m in love with it! However, I usually add my left over white rice into the mix while heating over the stove top because I don’t like over powering tastes in general. I’ll blog more about this later when I compile images. ^^
But yea, I’m getting tired of myself, and the mindset I’ve placed myself in is turning into a vicious cycle. I’m disappointing myself even more this time around, so something has to change within me. Don’t know where to start but I shall start by seeing myself more differently and express my inner me. My inner me truly wants to dye my hair… but I haven’t thought of which color yet. Maybe I should do it when I’m home so I have my mom’s tools at my disposal. But yea, I need to become less self conscious as well and just don’t care about how other people see me. I’m already 21. I should have embraced myself long ago and not realize it now. So what if I’m a little chubby? I’m a beautiful young woman inside and out regardless of my shape and how society perceives beauty.

Calming Down and Taking a Break
I know, I know, I need to calm down. I had a whirlwind of a week with my frantic bipolar emotions. Too many personal things occurred since the moment Spring Quarter began.
I’m going to take a break from my blog for a bit. I somehow started to depend on this place to express myself… and I’ve became a little bit more introverted and antisocial recently. I think I’d best be trying to connect with other humans and figure my way around this quarter.
One thing has come to light: my goal to graduate with honors. I truly forgot about this. I’m going to reattempt and try my best to boost my GPA to the standard I want it to be at… since letting myself fail and giving up is just too sad. I really don’t want to repeat these cycles that I’ve gotten myself in. I can’t believe I’ve allowed myself to feel okay with failing. I just launched myself backwards for no apparent reason.
Anyway, I’ll post again after two weeks (I want to see how long I last). Having one everyday is getting out of hand.
btw, comments are closed.
