Every six months, I usually post a list of general facts about myself but I’m going to change it up a little and focus on what’s happening with my life right now (or recently).
1. I’m finally aging: I know that we’re constantly growing and getting older. It happens so gradually that we barely notice the change. For the first time in 24 years of living, I’m finally starting to see it. I see it when I look in the mirror. I see it when I take pictures of myself. I’m not getting any grey hairs or wrinkles yet, but something is definitely off about my newly formed “adult” face. Something about me aged. Part of me thinks is mostly due to severe stress, and another part of me thinks it’s just my big nose growing even bigger.
Honestly, I don’t care if I age. It’s going to happen to everybody. But I only ask of one thing: Please don’t take away my hair. I just want to be 80 years old and have a beautiful head of long silver hair to whip back and forth with (assuming I won’t die by snapping my neck from it).
2. I fell into my first depression for like 2 days: Ha, that’s probably not a real depression then, but boy was it the weirdest, most horrible two days of my life! I felt absolutely horrible and I never want to experience it again. As a person who generally “lives to eat”, I didn’t eat anything but a single meal for 2-3 days. It was the first time in my life that I didn’t crave for food.
I kept telling myself that it was just the chemicals in my brain. It’s just the chemicals, don’t let it fucking get to you. And then I got over it in 2-3 days.
3. I eat avocados with everything now: When I say “everything” I really mean it. I’ve recently discovered that avocados goes with almost every course of meal that I usually eat at home. I do it because it makes everything 5x more delicious and enjoyable to eat.
The general rule is: If it can go with rice, then it can go with avocados too.
