egg stir-fry thing (on the left)
- 2 eggs- 2 sausage flanks (louisana hot sausage or chicken apple works better)- 1/2 anaheim pepper- 1/2 white onion- 1 carrot
* stir-fry carrot, onion, pepper first, then scramble eggs alone, add the mixture of veggies into the eggs, add salt, then add the sausages (no oil is actually needed, just sprinkle water onto the veggie mixture to prevent sticking)
beef short ribs with mushrooms (on the right)
- 3 strips of beef short ribs- 5 mushrooms
* marinate beef in salt, brown sugar, low-sodium soy sauce, all purpose flour, and cooking wine, leave it in the fridge for 3+ hours, put 1 tbsp of olive oil or coconut oil in grilling pan, grill the meat until golden brown on both sides; remove the meat, put the mushrooms in the leftover oil and sauces, grill for 2 minutes.

Chubby’s favorite cuddling nook. He always has to “hold” my arm (tuck one paw under and drape another over) while he’s curled up there. We get twice the cuddling this way - I cuddle him, he cuddles my arm!

there are some people

you just think about for at least one second per day, no matter how long it’s been. and it’s kinda like, you adopt this “time is just an illusion” philosophy for these people because there is no better way to explain it. and if you ever saw them again, the only thing you’d actually want to say is: “you changed me, I really hope to hear that you won’t be the same kind of happy without me than when you were with me, and also maybe not always but I will love you forever.”

How quickly is the world changing?

To give us an idea: much of the information that a freshman in college learns will be obsolete by his senior year, this is the first time that four generations have worked together, and our lovely national debt is increasing at 1.1 million per second.

I’m really no expert on politics or technology for that matter, like yesterday I learned how to copy and paste on a Mac and I still have no idea how Obamacare really works and why the medical expenses for a one night emergency stay in america is like 50,000 dollars. anyways, but I do know that in such a world, we probably don’t want to be stagnant; like we probably don’t wanna be the people who don’t understand how to or refuse to adapt, unless we just wanna get wiped off the edge of the earth. I think I’ve been guilty of this, in some ways, like everyone else. I think we have a certain tendency to love inertia, we like staying, we like comfort, and on some days, there are just certain things about a bed that has a stronger pull than everything else in the world. but, I think we should all still try. we should all try to learn something new, and step out of our comfort zones for like 2 minutes a day, maybe we will discover something we never meant to discover, (or maybe not, but who cares). imagine running on wheels, if you stop, you die, basically.

At TEDxYouth@Manchester, genetics researcher Dan Davis introduces the audience to compatibility genes — key players in our immune system’s functioning, and the reason why it’s so difficult to transplant organs from person to person: one’s compatibility genes must match another’s for a transplant to take.

To learn more about these fascinating genes, watch the whole talk here»

sometimes the best thing I can do for myself is literally just to sit here, eat some low-calorie snacks and watch a movie.
