An unadulterated review of Every Plate
What do you do when you love cooking and want to eat healthier but you work five days a week and you're so damn tired that you just can't find the energy to plan out a week's worth of meals and do the grocery shopping during the weekend?
To the ex who promised we would stay friends
To the ex who promised we would stay friends. The ex who swore up and down that we would never leave each other's side. The ex who begged me not to leave him. The ex who talked to me every single day for three years after we broke up, because we were friends first. The ex who made it nearly impossible for me to fully move on because I didn't want to make him jealous or upset. The ex who turned to me for advice on women after we broke up. The ex who came to me for everything. The ex who took three years to get over me. The ex who now pretends I no longer exist,
In A Mind
"Do you think he'll make it, Doctor?" "I'm sorry, I can't say for sure. This is nothing like anything we've seen before. His vitals all seem to be okay, he's on a respirator, but we're not entirely sure that he even needs one. We don't want to take him off just yet, but we may be able to do it at some point in the near future. He's healthy for the condition he's in, Mrs. Gregori. Everything is fine for the time being, except for the fact that he isn't waking up."
Noises in the Night
It started while I was fast asleep. I know I probably did actually hear it right away, deep down in my subconscious, but I can't be sure. I can tell you that when my brain finally made the connection with my ears, it sounded like the noises were coming from the dark recesses of my then still sleepy mind, from somewhere so far away that it was just a faint echo, almost like a phone call with awful reception. When, among my dreams, I realized I was hearing it I woke up so quickly it was as if someone had set off a car alarm right next to my ear. Wide awake, I sat there in total darkness, my bedroom just a black hole in the depths of our fairly large, somewhat old home. I listened to every tiny little noise the house could make, every creak and every groan, trying my hardest to discern what was real and what I only thought I'd heard.
The World As It Is
In a cold, dark prison cell a once young and beautiful woman sat staring out the single window she'd been granted. She looked at the leafless branches on the trees outside and the gray grass of the dying fields around her lonely prison. She could see the now familiar feeling of death and despair in everything she looked at. She remembered a day when the world around her held an air of magic and perfection, a day when she was the definition of grace and beauty, but in more recent times she was finding it harder and harder to remember those happy days.
The Other Kind of Customer Service
People say customer service jobs are difficult, customer service employees are terribly underpaid, customer service employees are abused, a whole host of things about how horrible customer service is as a living.
Fear In The Face of a Pandemic
I’m not a medical professional by any means. And I realize that one sentence will stop a solid 90% of you from finishing this post. That’s ok. I would love to say I trust the majority of the population to be able to read an opinion piece in its entirety, even if taking it with a grain of salt, but unfortunately we all make immediate judgments and then proceed to ignore the things we don’t like (i.e., the things we deem wrong) regardless of what’s actually true.
From Rags to Riches
As the old saying goes, "When you know, you know". I never understood that. I couldn't understand that. I was never in a position to understand that.
