This Is Real

Thank you for all your nice comments on my last post. :) I guess I've just been really caught up in a life that's going too fast. So many things have been happening and I'm constantly running around doing one thing after another without having a quiet moment to myself to just observe everything around me and enjoy the beauty of my surroundings. I should also probably try not to take this blogging thing so seriously. This is supposed to be fun, right? And you guys make it just that!

Soooo, here's some brekkiefast!

Pouring agave while taking a picture lying on the floor put me in the most awkward position ever. This was just simple oats with half a gala apple cooked in at the end so that it released it's sugars and got all soft and fragrant. I love doing that now! It makes the apple bits taste so good. Plus some cinnamon, the rest of the apple, natural peanut butter, coconut, and agave. I didn't really need the agave because it was already sweet enough but it was just for photographic purposes haha. Do you ever do that? Add extra food or seasonings in that you don't really need just to make the dish look nicer when photographed?

Something more exciting today is the Versatile Blogger Award that Elaine passed on to me! Thank youuu again!

So now I'm supposed to share 7 things about myself.. Wow, this is hard and I haven't even started yet.

#1: I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and have been since I was in grade 3. I've read all the books several times each and went to get Half-Blood Prince at its midnight release. Oh, and I cried every day for 2 weeks after Sirius died in the book.

#2: I'm one of those people who walk into a clothing store and touch every single thing on the racks as I walk by it.

#3: I have the most annoying, loud, high-pitched hyena laugh you will probably ever hear. That's something you wouldn't know about me through this blog! Ha hahahahahAH!

#4: I'm deathly afraid of horror movies, black holes, and the girl from The Ring.

#5: I can turn myself into a human basket, do the splits, turn my hand around 360 degrees while placed palm down on a flat surface, hyperextend my elbows, wrap my leg behind my neck, annnnnd see my butt through my legs when I bend forwards far enough. How's that for a freak show?

#6: I'm currently pursuing a degree in biology but still undecided about my area of specialization. I'm thinking marine biology, developmental biology, or more recently, I've taken an interest in nutrition (although I think that's more kinesiology/health science? than biology).

#7: My two front teeth are fake. Surprise! I broke my real ones in half when I fainted and hit my face on a bench almost a year ago. I had to get them root canal-ed, cut down, and encased in porcelain replacements. That's why they look a bit funny sometimes when the light hits them at a certain angle.

And 15 bloggers that I'm giving this award to:

Now get attt it, all of you! :D

This is a place for experiments and mistakes and inconsistency and trying to find out who I am and what I want to do. This blog is a collection of bad pictures, great pictures, good luck, real food, run-on sentences, happiness, inspiration, beautiful things, and moments in time.
