Someone gave us free ice cold treats for performing on Canada Day!
- A lady suddenly approached us and asked if we were the ones performing Tinikling earlier then she gave each one of us freezepops.
- It was a really hot day so we were so happy for her kind gesture!
- To think that we’re from the Philippines and we’re complaining about the heat so yes, it was blazing hot.
1. Food prep
You know you’ve plopped directly into your late 20s when someone’s Instagram’d picture of a week’s worth of food prep for real makes you envious.
2. Local, organic vegetables
What is our late 20s if not a never-ending montage of us going to Farmer’s Markets, then chopping up an endless supply of vegetables and packing them into tupperware that we then organize into our refrigerators all before noon?
3. Owning a Vitamix
One day, we all collectively woke up and thought, “You know what my life needs more of? Something that can both pulverize produce and make hummus!” Sure, we spent the $600 on it, use it only for green smoothies we could have made in a normal, much cheaper blender, but there’s the promise of soups… hummus… almond butter… and just knowing we have an appliance that can give us those things, well, it keeps the hope for liquid foods alive.
4. Professional cleaning
Think about how amazing it would be if someone gifted you a year’s worth of professional cleaning services. Are you turned on right now? I’ll give you a minute alone.
It’s like we got into our late 20s and all our aches and pains were intensified and we thought, “You know what would make me feel better? A complete stranger rubbing oil all over my body in silence for 60 minutes!”
When the historians look back on our generation they will be like, “They had a lot of brunch.”
7. Going to bed before midnight
Ain’t nobody got time to be out all night.
8. Non-ironically enjoying music from the 90s
I mean, our brains have forgotten all the timetables, but we remember the lyrics to every single song that *N SYNC ever created, so, all in all, we’re doing great.
9. Getting health benefits
When we were in college, the perks of a dream workplace were things like, a ping pong table, catered lunches, and office parties with open bars. Now it’s like, DENTAL! VISION! $10 COPAY!
The only connection you should have with the sin in your past is the testimony of how God delivered you from it. Your past is not your future. You are not defined by who you once were, but by who you are becoming in Christ.
I’ve been told that I couldn’t chew on anything for a few days after I get my wisdom teeth out so I did my grocery shopping over the weekend to prepare for it! Since I’m so into the healthy lifestyle these past few weeks, I took this as an opportunity to indulge in green smoothies.
To avoid spoiling the fruits and to keep my smoothie cold without using ice, I packed everything in ziplock bags and stored it in the freezer. It’s convenient as well since I can just grab it and blend. All I needed to add was milk, greek yogurt, honey or peanut butter which I wrote down so I wouldn’t forget the recipe.
#110 I don’t like drinking medicine.
It’s not that I don’t like the taste or that I have a hard time swallowing it, but it’s because of something my Chemistry professor told me before. She said that if you always drink medicine or rely on it a lot, your body eventually gets immune to it thus making you consume more each time. Ever since then, whenever I get sick, I try to stay away from medicines and drink lots of water instead.
I just had my wisdom teeth out and one of the prescription was Ibuprofen (which I believe is the pain killer). Since, it was stated in the bottle that I take it every 6 hours when needed for pain, I decided not to take it seriously. So I only took it once when it started to really hurt 6 hours after. When I went back to work, Kathy told me that Ibuprofen would help with the swelling… my bad!! So now, I’ve been trying to drink it every 6 hours just to get rid of my puffy cheeks!
P.S. Thank God my face is really small so it looks normal to other people even if it’s swollen!!
