I always enjoyed art, I liked going to the art museums on my travels and seeing the Mona Lisa, the sculpture of Nike, Sunflowers by Van Gogh and all the renaissance paintings. I like to pain myself, I do not think I am worthy or Picasso or Van Gogh in anyway, but I enjoy the craft of having a blank canvas and thinking "What will go on this canvas today?" and I create art. Unfortunately, I cannot keep painting for a day, I like to rush through it and show it off even though most of my art is no better than a six year old who paints. I like the idea of being a painter, I like the idea of having no money and painting for a living, it is an artist's life. But, let me paint you a beautiful pictures using just my words. What do I see outside of my window? What is it that I see when I look outside?
Like a lot of people nowadays I spend a lot of time surfing Facebook. I am sharing images of dogs and puppies being cute and kittens being silly with their best friends. However, I have been surfing the web for work out routines that are easy to follow and I can do anywhere. Of course, that affects my Facebook feed. I have been seeing many ads for pills, teas, and coffees that are helping people lose weight, but does it really work? Can a pill slim you down into what you want your body to loo like? The answer is no. No, a pill or a tea cannot slim you down to what you want your body to look like. You might want to know why? well, let me tell you with the research I have conducted with the help of my sister. I first asked her about these products because being a scientist and all she has to know something about these weird products that people are buying. Her response was that if you found a compound in a plant that increased cell metabolism, but that would eventually cause cancer because your metabolism is tightly regulated to prevent the release of reactive oxygen species. So, you would be doing more harm to your body then anything. Most of these ads advertise that they are made from natural ingredients and I think this is where people get caught up in it and start believing it. I, then asked myself "could it be a placebo effect taking part in this?" That's when I received an article called "Expectancy, Self-Efficacy, and Placebo Effect of a Sham Supplement for Weight Loss in Obese Adults" apparently there was a study done to study this phenomenon: All participants were randomized to 1 of 3 conditions:
We all like the idea of breakfast food, we like orange juice that is freshly squeezed, the taste of buttermilk pancakes, the sticky sweet syrup that we drown our pancakes in just to get a sugar high, the smell of freshly cut grass sweeping in from your window. Pancakes are a very common breakfast food no one can deny it, but I myself prefer waffles, waffles have more substance and you can eat two a be full. I grew up with my mom making crepes, we only had pancakes while camping and waffles were a rare treat for us, I learned how to make waffles from a recipe book titled "Company is Coming" but since then, I created my very own waffle recipe that is perfect for a solitude breakfast that is social distancing friendly. This will be enough for you a loved one to share.
This is a difficult challenge to write about. I would want to do many things once this pandemic is over, there are movies I want to see in the theaters, there are parks I want to have picnics in, there are clothes I want to shop for, there are restaurants I want to eat at with good company. But I do not know when this pandemic will be lifted and over chances are I will probably make my day look something like this.
I know that now many people have a Netflix account and there are so many great shows to watch such as Grey's Anatomy, The Flash, Friends, The office and so many more. However, there are some shows, which are great, but not too many people know about them. I only recently started to watch other shows that were on Amazon Prime and other streaming services. I will give you a great list of shows for you to sit down and watch until it is midnight.
The one thing that I look forward to most is my wedding day. I dreamed of the day that my fiance would propose to me and I would whip out a monica-style binder like in friends and start planning as soon as it happened. I did things similar to that, but thanks to Pinterest I did not have to make a binder. Now, I imagined wearing my white dress and walking down the aisle to meet my to-be husband. However, I would be lying if that's all I have been looking forward to all my life. I have been looking forward to my honeymoon more because it would be a great vacation with the one person you love in the world most and annoying relatives would stay behind. I always wanted to go to Hawaii as my honeymoon destination, even though I have been there before.
