Haircut before and after. No more ponytails for me!
After running 6.5 miles last night, I made rice pudding for dessert and breakfast today. Also check them out at theveganstoner.com.
For those of you who are worried, I have not officially started packing. But I’m nowhere near being ready to leave yet.
my cats woke me up at 2 AM this morning and I’m really tired and don’t want to go to work. Ugh.
19 days until I leave the country and I still haven’t started packing yet.
I’ve been absent…
So it’s been awhile since I actually posted anything about what was going on in my life…so here’s a long list of things that have happened since then.
continued to work 40 hours at the beach
got my long stay visa for studying abroad in France
perfected my farmers tan
got back into a good running schedule (I haven’t been on one since February)
read a lot of books
got some new composition software that was really expensive but is really freaking cool and I love messing around with it
made my own vegan veggie burgers (sweet potato, black eye pea and spinach) without a recipe
burnt myself making said veggie burgers
ignored my own advice and ran two miles barefoot out of the blue even though I knew my feet weren’t calloused enough
oh my goodness I’ve started packing for France….so close…
Germany won! (these are not in order) Woo!
trying to convince my parents that a mohawk would be a really cool haircut
went to the farmers market all by myself, got baby eggplants and roasted them (on a weekend when I had the house to myself), felt grown-up
i think that’s all…if you want more detail about any of these things…message me and I’ll do a whole blog post. :)
i want my children to grow up barefoot running through the woods. I want them to know the feeling of the trees growing around them, to recognize the gurgle of a stream before they see it, to know the taste of a blackberry from a bush long before the taste of a chip. I want my children to experience the earth we came from through touch, not pictures, and video games. And I want to be right there with them through all of it.
benefits of walking barefoot
- drawing electrons from the earth improves health
- earthing changes the electrical activity in the brain, as measured by electroencephalograms
- grounding benefits skin conductivity, moderats heart rate variability, improves glucose regulation, reduces stress and boosts immunity.
- earthing increases the surface charge of red blood cells
- it just feels really nice to walk through thick grass or soft sand or squishy moss
