Day 354: Being able to work on Tom’s canal-side patio for 15 mins, Grilled aubergines, TechCrunch and Having a friendship network that actually spans the entire globe…

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

Day 338: Girl Model documentary, Iron Rich Foods, Khloe and Lamar, Hallway convos with Kat and Working on The Fallen…

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 …

Day 336: Switchfoot, The Vitamin String Quartet, Shredding Veggies and The day I finished my Yoga internship…

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

Day 305: Getting locked out of my house and Leeks!

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

Day 292: 50% off Rush Haircuts, Tofu Salad with Peanut Sauce and Alpro Chocolate Soya Milk…

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!

Day 282: The Milky Way Tree, Ryvita with Moroccan Hummus, Every time my sister interrupts me at work and Corporate apologies…

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 =)

Day 274: All signs go, Shared aspirations, Veggie burgers at the Stricklands and Dragon’s Den…

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

Day 270: NZCA/LINES, Beef with tofu, My big-ass computer screen, Steve Kamb and the Results-Oriented Approach…

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 …

Day 246: Veggie Fry Ups, Mockingbird and a whole lotta Ambition!

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.
