In the first of a series of fresh starts I’m giving myself for my upcoming birthday (We’re one week away from 31), I gave my blog a new, minimalist look. Purging and simplifying will be the theme of the coming year but more on that in next week’s birthday post. For now, I want you to check out my pretty new clean design. To scratch the writing itch and give you a reason to check out the new digs, I’m answering five random questions that I found in various corners of the internet. I may make this a weekly practice to keep things moving around here. Here goes:
One: If you could live in any home on a television series, what would it be?
One. I’m one of those annoyingly picky eaters. Between the food I’m allergic to and the stuff that grosses me out, I don’t eat the following:
- Fruit (tomatoes included) – the texture grosses me out. I don’t like squishy or mushy things in my mouth.
- Beans or peas
- Greens – my grandmother cooked them too often when I was young and I legitimately cannot taste them anymore.
- Yams/sweet potatoes
- Spicy food – food isn’t supposed to hurt, yo
- Unless you want to see me swell up like Hitch, keep your walnuts, almonds, peanuts, or anything cooked in sesame.
I took advantage of the task-oriented energy that came with the New Moon in Virgo earlier this week and made some updates on the blog. Ta da!! Since I’ve directed this space toward being a journal/memoir, this layout felt perfect. I’ve also got a running list of writing prompts so I can stick with my new intention of posting here twice a week. It’s part of my Beginner’s Mind Zen practice: investing more energy in my creative endeavors, an area of my life I’ve neglected for awhile now.
The biggest reason I’m drawn to astrology: it helps me order my steps. (I plan to elaborate on this in a blog post at some point)
