“What is it that confers the noblest delight? What is that which swells a man’s breast with pride above that which any other experience can bring to him?
To know that you are walking where none others have walked;
that you are beholding what human eye has not seen before;
that you are breathing a virgin atmosphere.
To give birth to an idea–to discover a great thought — an intellectual…

Mood: Happy, comfortable Action: Chewing gum (random I know) I am sure that it has been noticed before already:
where two Europeans or Latinos greet each other with a kiss/peck on each cheek.
I remember thinking that I could not do that and would feel super shy about it,
but I have adapted to it already and learned something interesting about it.

Mood: Homesick, regretful, sad… Note: It seems that the only locals that truly welcome a foreigner are the mosquitos. They truly love my blood… A week has passed in Rome.
Feels like it has been so much longer than that.
As I turned on the boiler/heater before taking my shower (you have to heat up the water and wait…
So I am currently studying abroad in Rome, Italy. Obviously there to learn some recipes and such for this website ;) But actually, I am. So I will not be posting on here most likely for a few months, but there are plenty of food pics and things about Rome (plus basically my honest thoughts which I guess I do not care who reads or hears or judges since I am just laying myself out here on the open…
Don’t be confused by the title/name of the cookie. It is still delicious and basically tastes like a chewy, chocolate chip, oatmeal cookie. It is so delicious! Click to try out this healthy flour-free lactation cookies recipe!
What Lactation means is that this cookie helps mothers produce milk when they are breastfeeding. Honestly, I’m not breast feeding, but I ate a few myself because they are…

It’s just great to keep in touch with people that you care about. Obviously, even if there are others that you care about, sometimes it’s hard if it’s always you that’s hitting them up. So sometimes you just sort of stop that life of always being the one that initiates and wait to see who comes to you first. That’s how you know then..because they can either

I have been updating my Study abroad blog as I prepare for my departure. Today is D-16!!
I’ve been teaching myself Italian have started to post some dialogues that I have typed up as practice from my own knowledge onto the site. Hopefully, by doing this, I will improve in my Italian as well as the chatting that I have been doing with native…
I’ve tried various microwave muffin/bread/cookie/brownie recipes whenever I have a craving for something sweet that isn’t fruit. This is one of the few recipes that have actually satisfied me: Fudgy Flour-less Vegan Microwave Brownie Recipe
It’s chocolate-y, fudgy-y, molten, soft, and yet chewy~
I have finally updated the Spicy Braised Mackerel/Saury 꽁치조림 recipe page with the ingredients and directions!
I made this while I had no meal plan in college during the summer. It was so easy and delicious to make since I used canned fish. It lasted me a few meals and wrapped with rice and lettuce was the best! Especially because I had been craving Korean food soooo badly.
Check it out! :)…
Alicia Keys will forever remain one of my top artists and forever the number one American Soul Artist in my heart. I have grown up listening to and singing her music.
It’s my mother’s birthday in 15 minutes here and once again two songs of Alicia Keys rings in my soul. They happen to be my favorites that I constantly sing as well.

I never thought the day would come … the day that I realize that suddenly I am not as imaginative as I was before.
I was playing with my niece and nephew as usual (more like my nephew was chilling actually). As we were playing in her “play pen” and as she took out her animal toys one by one while repeating what they were to me with her …. wonderful pronunciation, I suddenly remembered the days…

Link to the recipe: Creamy Avocado (& Tomato) Noodles
It’s been a while since I’ve put up a recipe … in fact it’s been a while since I’ve had spiralized noodles. But I figured, since this one worked and it was so easy and simple to make with ingredients that are commonly held in the home, I should put it down. I’ve cooked and…
Last night at Mexico Mission Prep, my friend asked if I wanted a tattoo and I was like sure (cause like come on, why not? :P)
So, I trusted him with his sharpies to spontaneously draw on my arm. He just started drawing while making random sound effects and it turned out pretty dang good in my opinion :P I actually don’t want it to come off for quite a while (which it won’t anyways) although I…
Just for fun :P
My mom thought that I had a cig in my mouth or something – she was all like what is that?? Looks like a cigarette…
Let me assure you that it is not and that it is my electric toothbrush x)
Anyways, I like to randomly send snapchats to my friends and many of them I like to decorate. These are just a few for kicks :P
