Today, grateful Tom offered to let Louis and I work on his patio and catch 15 mins of sun! / Today, I’m grateful for TechCrunch and finding this interesting map that shows me where all my friends are in the world… Intriguing… … … Though I have to say that looks pretty impressive. I love being a Global Nomad and TCK =D It has its perks =) / Grilled aubergines = YUM! More please! x
I’m grateful for the documentary, “Girl Model”. Not because it’s a particularly joyful topic… But because it made me grateful that I didn’t have to live my life this way. / Today… I practically ate a whole garden full of iron-rich foods… I’ve been feeling really really low on energy lately and something just wasn’t feeling right… Did some research. Bought some goods. Ate them all. Now feeling much much better. Thank god for that! / Is it bad to say I love The Kardashian show so much I now follow the spin-off about Khloe and Lamar?? Oh no… Maybe I should have kept that too myself! =| =p / I like how Kat and I can literally plant ourselves anywhere in the house and still feel comfortable. Now that’s a good house! Grateful! / On the way home… just thinking as I do… Maya threw a brick down on me from heaven and told me what I had to do. So when I couldn’t sleep this evening… guess what I did? I went ahead and started …
Today, I spent the whole day finishing off my yoga internship requirements and homework, while listening to the most amazing rendition of Switchfoot’s “Dare you to move” by The Violin String Quartet… This will always be one of my favourite songs… And this instrumental version of it just… takes my breath away. Very happy today, and very grateful =) x / Who knew shredding vegetables could be so much fun!! Why did I not think of this before??? SO. YUM… NOM! =D / PS – remember this film? Yea… long time ago huh? =) x
Today, I accidentally locked myself out of the house for an hour and a half after biting the bullet and going for my first “run” of the summer. But it’s okay. Because during those 90 minutes waiting for Kat to come home and save me, I came up with another brilliant idea to sell and market #futureplanning. Realised you just gotta f*ckin OWN IT! And so we shall. / Leeks. I love leeks. So simple. So YUM. It is now in my tum. =D =) x
Capital Cities – “Safe and Sound” – great track. Grateful! / Homemade food inspired by Moroccan cuisine. Grateful… and YUM! =)
Grateful I decided to shop around and find this 50% off deal for first-time haircuts at Rush =) / Grateful for being able to – more or less – recreate my favourite Just Salad salad – Tofu, spinach, beans and a whole lotta greens tossed in a crunchy peanut sauce… Mmmm. YUM! Who said being vegetarian was boring! 😉 / Bloat-free Chocolate milk. Mmmm. YUM!
To make a Milky Way Tree: warm a handful of fake (Quorn) chicken meat; chop and dice fresh, plump avocadoes; toss some fresh, crunchy spinach leaves; serve all together with a natural yoghurt and fresh lemon pepper sauce and voila! – you have just tasted a little bit of heaven… Grateful! / Ryvita with Moroccan hummus = YUM! / Every time my sister pesters and pings and pings and pesters to chat and to video skype at work… I am grateful. I mean, look at that face! How could I possibly resist?! =) / Thanks, C, for the formal apology. I’d rather ctrl + R though and start afresh =)
Conference call with Mom, Dad and Uncle Mike until 4.45 am… GRATEFUL. / Being able to sleep until noon… GRATEFUL. / 2-hr conference call and dream-catching with Cribbin… GRATEFUL. / Sometimes, life feels like an episode of Dragon’s Den… GRATEFUL. (Especially when I’m fed! =p ) / (DJ leaving today… NOT so grateful… But appreciate the quality time we have had in the last 2 weeks… See you soon enough, deej. Love you!!) x
Thank you, Jo, for introducing me to NZA/LINES. Good tunes for a Wednesday, I say! Favourites for today: Okinawa Channels and Compass points. “A sleek synthetic sound driven by a heart of human loneliness and longing… Seduced by psychology, spirituality, science fiction, Peruvian geoglyphs and forward-thinking RnB production, Michael Lovett’s arrival at gossamer synths-laden electro pop is a pleasing surprise amidst such eclecticism… Creating a world of dystopian landscapes, populated by lost souls and lost lovers, it’s a set that’s apocalyptic without needing any blockbuster dramatics to paint a bleak picture of a future full of roaming sentinels and desperate biomechanics.” – Reef Younis. Now if that doesn’t sell it, I don’t know what will! / (Soy) Beef with tofu = YUM. Who says you can’t have momma’s cooking when you’re a veggie? =p =D / Grateful for nights in and SATC + Anchorman reruns with Kat. Especially when you have big-ass computer screens to play them on in my room (Thanks LH!). I swear this is just like high school all over again. The funniest part was …
This weekend, I spent time with family. In my sleep and waking moments, I dreamt and made plans for the future. I dared to try. (I am still trying). I hid something up my sleeve. Then I hunted, and found the perfect house. I made an offer. I partied. I slept over. I laughed. In far away lands, I sought opportunities and sparked interest in my ambitions. I flew on someone’s feet, and had them balance on mine. Then I went home, to play with mockingbirds. And kept on constructing my dreams… Grateful. / PS, I ate. It was good.
