Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself - no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think someone else wants you to be different. You should only put that burden on yourself and not others…..

wait you mean you don’t use the word ‘fortnight’ in america???

Wait what? Then what do they use?

they don’t have a word

what do you mean they don’t have a word what kind of uncivilised people are they??

the fuck is a fortnight

It’s a word for ‘two weeks’

We say “two weeks”

*thousands of cups of tea smash to the ground in shock*

When I started graduate school in London, one of my information packets said that a discussion section met fortnightly. I had to ask my roommate what that meant.

HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon. Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life.

HANGOVER SOUP

Last night I went to a pretty epic wedding and drank all of the things. So dinner tonight could only be Hangover Soup. It’s rich and nourishing and NOMMMMM. Basically it’s like the Bloody Mary of soups

Here’s how I made it!
(I found this recipe on Fresh Direct, originally from “Dairy Hollow House Soup & Bread Cookbook” by Crescent Dragonwagon).

Throw like 6 cloves of garlic in a giant pot with some fresh parsley, sage, and thyme (Rosemary is not invited to this party). Oh, and 3 whole cloves. Then dump 6 cups of your preferred stock in the pot and boil/simmer that stuff for an hour (or until your patience runs out.

Taste the broth and add a bunch of black pepper and dried herbs because the broth is still kinda bland. Cook for another 10ish minutes. Pull out the herbs and smoosh the garlic cloves.

Add 2 cups of tomato juice (or V8 or *gasp* Clamato) and some worcestershire sauce. Bring up the temperature and toss in 3/4 cups pasta like baby shells or elbows—mac and cheese kinda stuff. Cook until the pasta is done.

Here’s the trickier part. Beat three egg yolks in a little bowl. And slowly add a little bit of the soup to the eggs spoon by spoon to temper the eggs. Once the eggs are up to temperature, add it to the soup. It’ll thicken up the soup and turn it kinda orange - like tomato soup orange, not Doritos orange. Let it cook for a few more minutes.

Now scoop some of this deliciousness into a bowl. Add hot sauce to taste. Dump a pile of yummy shredded cheddar cheese and a couple avocado slices on top.

Eat it.

Ooooh I was just talking about soup-tempering today!

I’ll try this next time I’m hung over
