A presumably non-controversial statement

I know everyone's on board with libraries and I don't need to hammer home how not only amazing but also necessary they are, but here's a fun case study: the amazing book Our Bodies & Other Fine Machines by Natalie Wee. Published in 2016, now out of print, $750 on Amazon (+ $3.95 shipping). The DeKalb County library system was able to get me a copy from the King County library system in Washington for $3 and a little bit of patience. Thank you to Natalie Wee and the DeKalb and King County libraries! I will return it on time and unmolested.

I tried making koshari...

...and it turned out pretty okay!!!


Second recipe at this link, although I combined the onions, tomato mixture, and spinach into one, and I did use chickpeas. I also used store bought fried onions and my proportions were different. Still!

Damp and... Sun-kissed?

Tubing on Sunday, Cedar Point (interrupted by rain) today, kayaking tomorrow--I'm going to show up to my first day at my new job looking pretty pink and wrinkled...

TBTuesday: My Bus Ride to Austin

I was going through old pictures to submit some for a graduation slideshow to play before the ceremony, and ended up finding a lot of selfies from my 30+ hour bus ride from Detroit to Austin. Presented without comment below:

My Old Sandals

The first step to being a minimalist isn't to throw stuff out, but to use it up.

A few days ago, I realized that the cork on my sandals was crumbling away under my heels and big toes, that I'd worn all the way through the sole at the heel on one sandal, and almost all the way through on the other.

It feels good, having waited until my old sandals were really used up before buying a new pair. Hopefully my new pair will last longer if I take proper care of them.
