“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.”
 ― Ellen Goodman


This is how I feel about our capitalist consumerist society.

I can’t believe I get to travel for work. It’s like a muthafckn paid vacation. TO FILM. And I’ve never gotten to film something for two weeks. I’ve never even had a more than one day role and a tv show. this is probably the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me in my life.

Seared salmon with sautéed white beans and bacon, basil sauce.
Submitted to MasterChef by frenchcuisse
Basil sauce - A handful of basil blended with vegetable oil. Season with salt & pepper.
White beans / bacon - Cook the white beans (I followed the instructions on the bag) then reserve. As soon as the salmon is almost cooked, (depending on how you like it) in a pan, cook the sliced bacon, add the white beans, chopped chives, and season with salt & pepper. Do not sauté for too long, plate the beans as soon as possible to prevent it from getting too oily.Salmon - Score the skin, season with salt and pepper on both sides and sear skin side first on high heat then slowly reduce the heat to mid-high to prevent the salmon from burning. Once the skin is crispy, flip it, cook the flesh side for a minute or so until brown, then back on it’s skin. Add a good tablespoon of unsalted butter to the pan, a few sprigs of thyme, oregano, and a few cloves of garlic. Start basting the fish for a good 10 - 15 seconds. Finish cooking to your liking.
Basket - Salmon, bacon, yogurt, mint, basil, white rice, white beans, balsamic vinegar.

I’ve been rewriting like nobody’s business the last few days. I’m exhausted, but I really do feel great when I spend all day writing.

"Good Morning"
“How was your day?”
“Be careful”
“Text me when you get home so I know you’re safe”
“Sweet dreams”
“How are you?”
“I hope you’re feeling better”
“Have a good day today!”
“I miss you”
“Good night”
“Can you come over?”
“Can I come over?”
“Can I see you?”
“Can I call you?”
“You’re beautiful”
“Want something to drink?”
“Watch your step”
“Let’s watch a movie”
“What are you up to?”
“How is your day so far?”
“It will be okay”
“I’m here for you”
“Do you need anything?”
“Are you hungry?”
“I just wanted to hear your voice”
“You just made my day”

You don’t have to hear “I Love You” to know that someone does. Listen carefully. People speak from the heart more often than you think.

horoscope

"In general this will be a year of cleansing, and of deleting all that you feel is unnecessary or harmful in your life. You must decide what must go, dear Virgo, as the universe cannot fit new things in your life until you empty your basket of some of the things that you no longer need."
