please say a quick prayer for this avocado i’m about to open…
So, everyone knows that saying about having to love yourself before anyone can love you. In a very “well, duh" moment, I am beginning to understand more clearly what that actually means.
Today I batch-cooked. I made enough food for five lunches and five dinners: penne pasta with vegetables and Trader Joe’s vodka sauce, divided into tupperware containers, as well as sweet potatoes, asparagus, zucchini, tofu and quinoa, which will become something called a “skillet bowl,” as taught to me by a fit and healthy lady on the internet. I also did my laundry, picked out an outfit, and set out oatmeal and tea for tomorrow morning since I have to work at 7:45. And it’s only 11:40, which doesn’t seem particularly early, but I promise, it is for me.
Basically, my dumb realization is that self-love and self-care are not about thinking I am awesome and perfect the way I am. It’s about loving and caring for myself enough to give myself the tools to change and be better. Treating myself with the respect I would afford a friend.
I like cooking on Sundays. I’ve done all of my homework so far this semester, which is a miracle in and of itself. I’m in two shows this year, and I enjoy performing, even though I’m not planning on making a career of it the way my classmates are. Things are going fine.
literally all the girls i follow on here are funnier than every popular male comedian i know of
Yep. Also my friends in real life.
My project just received a $15,000 grant. Is this real life?
