Bf's mom went home from hospital, but with what she has we're still not sure whether that's a good thing. Hope so.
Feeling pretty healthy and great today so I wanted to quickly write down what I've eaten!!! I just feel very energized and ready to do a lot. I think part of it could be because I put my hair up. Who would have known having messy long hair can be such a weight. Maybe my hair up in a bun reminds me of when I was taking ballet classes for a few years as…Continue
Hello everyone :) Shh. Staying up late signing up for classes!!! I might stay up all night--this is hard! The choices are getting narrower as I get closer to my degree--but I haven't been accepted in a program yet (nor have I tried--I need to get all the pre-reqs first!), so I have to make sure I have both gen-eds and pre-reqs covered from both schools I'll be applying to--so I'm trying to find the most optimal classes--ones that will cover all 4. This is HARD. Plus I don't have the…Continue
Well, right now on top of all my stuff, here is another thing stacked on to my boyfriend and I's pile. His mom is in the hospital and it's pretty serious. She had a surgery done a while ago, and they made a pretty big mistake on her--left a hole in her colon. She has 3 infections right now because of it and one of them is rare and can't be treated with antibiotics. We are praying for her and thinking of her. We are extremely worried about her. She can't leave the hospital. In order…Continue
Family-wise: Pretty rocky. Which is odd, as I've never felt like that's been the case in the past. A great start to adulthood. I voiced how I felt, and how ridiculous I felt they were being (rather than keep my mouth shut and let them say whatever like I have the last few years, to avoid conflict), and of course I get some sort of battle. I honestly feel a bit like I am being bullied, and I think only stupid people, or the immensely insecure, bully. I've never been selfish or demanding…Continue
(Headnote: a gastric emptying is NOT the same as a gastric bypass LOL. What I had, a gastric emptying, is when you eat some eggs that have radioactive material in them (which I know will make some people here gasp lol), and then they use a camera to take pictures every hour of the food moving down your stomach.)
So I never shared this here, but yeah, I ate a scrambled egg for one of my medical procedures in the recent past (not after I started raw). I've been 100% vegan for 3 years,…Continue
I made my last post friend's only, not to ban anyone (not that I can think of a single person I'd want to ban. everyone here has been pretty lovely to me) but just because it was about family. I love my family, but to be honest, my parents seem to either be dumber than I am (>.< not to be insulting, it just seems to be the case, due to the lack of logic and the interrupting with crappy points or just plain ignoring good points and then bringing up something stupid to dodge what I was…Continue

Well I just feel delighted today. I thought my breakfast was small but for some reason it was very energizing, so I'm going to list it:
A little under 2 cups of vitamix blended soup consisting of--steamed broccoli stalk base (none of the florets--I ate all those, but I hate those darn stalks on their own so I use them in soups!!), 1 small turmeric root (could it be where the energy is from?) that dyed my vitamix, hopefully not permanently, yellow, 1/2 a small lime, 3/4's of a 1/2 of…Continue
Skin is brighter and clearer than ever, except where my shea moisture leave-in conditioner touched my skin when I was using it for a couple of days. I hope I can give it away as it's got great ingredients--kind of a bummer that I'm having such a bad reaction to it. I didn't even know it was possible for my skin to get the kind of acne that my face got after using the lotion. Truly horrible, I think my skin right there may be ruined permanently >.< Hopefully not. It's going away…Continue

Ingredients: Some good apples that you know make juice taste like cider (I know there's different varieties--I've had them!! I just can't remember what they are right now!), or just some cider that has no other ingredients added other than apples :)
Chai tea bags (a preservative free brand that you like :) )
Juice the apples (or don't if you bought pre-made cider!). Then slowly heat up in a pot on the stove (or for 20-60 seconds in the microwave, if you're like me and think…Continue

Oh dear, it's been okay.
I feel NICER. I just feel better. I left a couple comments for people here on the hab to help them out, and I got to thinking about things and it really just feels great to help people. And be more open to them, and not kind of shut down as I seem to do. So I've been smiling today at random times to be polite, not putting a wall up, etc. It worked--in the bathroom where I normally keep completely to myself and hate talking to people, two…Continue
We went to the bookstore yesterday--the journal I'd been researching was in reality, a lot smaller than I envisioned!! Boo. It's supremely difficult to find a journal as large as I want without paying some binding company an absurd amount of money--well, as I've found so far. I'm about to just call it quits and grab some of my old college ruled paper, tie it together really tightly and strongly with some super glued ribbons stuck through the holes over a cut piece of plastic for kind of a…Continue
