Cooking for one

One of my New Year’s resolution for last year to was eat healthier. This mean that I had to cut back on McDonald’s and other fast food. From time to time, I will give in and eat fast food but after doing so, it feels as if my body regrets eating it. When it comes to fast food, I crave it once every two months or so. At this rate, I might eventually give up on fast food altogether.

With fast food out of the picture, I have to prepare my food every night. It’s a habit that I am trying to keep up. Basically, I scour the internet for recipes and find something that catches my attention and makes my mouth water. I write down the ingredients and head to the grocery store to pick it up. Certain dish requires a lot of preparation but I am starting to like the preparation part. I enjoying cooking and everything that it has taught me so far. I think that there is still a lot more that I have to learn. I like to think that I have mastered the pasta dishes but I am sure that I am missing out on a few things.

So far, I’m starting the year on the right path. Here’s hoping that I don’t veer off course.

It’s a new year

So starts another year. It has been a while since I have actually written anything on here. For the last year or so, this site has been used to host my photographs. Looking back at it, I started this site as a way to express myself, whether it’s through words or through pictures. I think it’s time that I get back to its roots and start writing things again. I just have a feeling that once I start to get busy with work and school again, I’m going to fall behind and slow stop writing, or taking pictures for that matter.

If there’s one thing that I’ve noticed about myself is that once things get busy, I used that as an excuse not to do things. That’s a bad way to live life since it seems like I’m taking advantage of my busyness and using it as an excuse if I don’t want to do anything. I’m sure that I can find time to do thing given my busy schedule. I just have to manage my time more wisely. I don’t have to sit around surfing the net or going on Reddit but I guess a part of me chooses to do so because I am lazy. I have come to accept the fact that I can get lazy, more often than I should be. I can probably save myself a lot of headaches and frustration if I stopped being lazy but I guess it’s human nature to be lazy, especially after working for eight hours.

I am not even going to bother trying to make a resolution to stop being lazy. Like the commercial says, “Just do it!” Carpe diem! It’s going to be a hard habit to get rid of but I am going to try my best and stop being lazy. There is a time to stay active and a time to rest. I have two-thirds of the day to do something and I should take advantage of that. So, more time being active and less time idling. Come to think of it, if I add all the time that I waste sitting around in front of the computer, just browsing the internet, I could have probably learned a new skill by now. Who knows, maybe I could have gain a handful of useful skills.

Only time will tell.
