Today I tried a different fried rice recipe with peas, spring onion, curry powder, garlic and fresh coriander. It turned out okay, but I don't think I will make it again. You can't go wrong with rice, peas and onion, but I'm just not a fan of curry powder. I've got plenty of rice left, does anyone have a good idea for tomorrow? I'm poor, so I prefer cheap ingredients. Oh, and spicy stuff. Spicy food is the best!

Nah, he's in his fifties, but S. recently saw a picture of him when he was younger. Back then dad had shoulderlength hair just like I have now. We figured he was refering to that, because he normally says my dad looks like Santa (which he does) and I do not look like Santa! I hope. That one time I did one of those 'what celebrity do you look like' tests that uses photo's, my best match was Tolstoj...

Little S. (3) got mad when I took off my glasses to show the frame is made of this neat titanflex stuff "Put your glasses back on, you look like uncle C.!" Uncle C. being my dad. Who also wears glasses. And has a beard. Yeah...

I'm starting to think that I may not actually be a short, skinny blonde girl, but that I'm in fact a darkhaired guy in his mid thirties or something. That'd would explain why a friend keeps encouraging me to cosplay Raven from ToV.

I've had my fair share of experiences with nutritionists as well and what I want to add is that you shouldn't overthink your diet. You don't want to get sucked in by the details. Planning meals days ahead isn't the right thing to do unless you have complex medical problems. Sure there's a ton of science behind food, but how you experience food is just as important when trying eat better. Eating healthier is a lot easier when you know what you like and take the time to enjoy it.

Besides, there's really no magical good food formula that works for everyone. There are basic things everyone should do like drink plenty of water, but stuff like proper portion size varies from person to person.

Back when I was in high school, I needed a lot of energy to get through the day. Close to 3000kcal. I ate pretty healthy too. Proper meals, but big portions. My friends always made fun of my lunchbox. I lost weight whenever I ate less than that, which is not something I should've be doing at 110-115 pounds. But that's me. Unless you're a professional athlete, you'd probably gain a lot of weight if you ate like a 17 year old me.

I also drink only water and tea most days.

Tea is great and not nearly as boring as most people think. Even when you're on a tight budget like me there are so many flavours to try. I like to start my morning with something fruity, softer green teas are nice for during the day and rooibos with some honey makes for a good treat. Of course, I also drink a lot of regular water, but I can't get through cold days without some nice hot tea.

Also, if you like chocolate, go dark. It is actually good for you in limited quantities. Fiber and anti-oxidants. Plus, it's damn delicious once you acquire the taste. Milk chocolate is almost nasty to me now. Plus, go with the better brands like Lindt and Ghirardelli. Hershey dark is junk.

Yep, dark chocolate is the best! Milk chocolate is much too sweet once you've developed a taste for the real stuff. I don't go below 70% if I can help it.

A really simple, easy breakfast is Greek yogurt with granola. If you have a little more time, cook an egg, top with tomatoes, avocado, and radishes. A piece of wheat toast with some jelly isn't bad, either.

Yogurt is hip right now, but there's a ton of things you can eat for breakfast. I usually go for a simple sandwich or oatmeal porridge. Add a little sugar made from sugarcane and raisins, and it's like eating liquid cookies.

Usually 1-2 hours and 1-2 sittings a day. But if there's a game I need to review and I'm really, really into it, I might play up to 10 hours a day. Technically it's work, so I have an excuse.

Ugh, looks like the dentist is going to charge me for that x-ray they shouldn't have made. Their little mistake will cost me nearly €40. That's three weeks worth of food. Or a videogame. Assholes.

Continued the longest Tales of Vesperia playthrough ever. My friend and I started it somewhere last year, playing 2-3 hours every month. Since we were near the end of the first third of the game, I finally got to play as Raven. Raven is awesome. We dressed up Estelle in her nurse outfit and put some angel wings on her so she could pass for a Fluttershy cosplayer. Because we could. Yay!

Tomara, the very same thing is happening here in the U.S. I live in Northern Illinois and the temps have been unseasonably warm. Most people are happy about this, but being the plantsman that I am, I am a bit freaked out. I'm seeing bulbs coming up and buds swelling on trees and shrubs. This is NOT a good thing, and I feel like I'm the only one who cares. A couple days of warmth is no biggie, but when it gets into weeks it causes major issues. The problem is that the inevitable cold will come back and damage all the plants that "thought" it was Spring. It won't kill the plants, but it will lessen the amount of color and growth they put on in this upcoming season.
I'm glad I'm not the only one concerned about it.

Then I'm glad it won't die.

I also noticed there's still fruit on the cherry trees that line the road I always walk when I go to the bakery. It's rotting on the branches but it's still there. Normally the birds would've finished them off months ago. For some reason they don't feel the need to. Or there might be less birds. The types that usually show up in gardens in winter to eat dried fruits and seeds have been strangely absent.

Interesting.  I'd feel the same way, Tomara.

But I wonder, what if it's freezing in March? Will my tree be okay? It's a prunus serrulata (Amanogawa type) and usually blooms in April. Grandfather gave it to us when mom and dad bought their house and is has grown really tall over the years. It's the prettiest tree in the whole neighbourhood and it'd be terrible if it was damaged or died.

All the SMT games are great, not just Persona.  Buy them if you can.

Shadow Hearts is a hinky series.  I personally didn't like the first game, but I've met people who extoll it as the best in the series.  The second game is fantastic, and I can't suggest it enough.  The third game is kinda terrible, but that's mostly because they went full-on goofy mode instead of staying quasi-serious like the previous games; the game itself was still totally solid.

I'm one of those people who liked the first one the most. I have a soft spot for horror stories and a horror RPG was like a dream come true. But horror is not for everyone, I guess. Still, I think you can get most out of the second game by playing the first one too. It's fairly short by RPG standards anyway.

Edit: or read/watch a Let's Play, that'll work too.

That cherry tree I buried Chibi under? It's acting weird. There are buds in it and it looks like it will blossom before the end of the month. I know it's the mild weather screwing with my tree, but still...

Keep in mind I'm a little person so my voice is naturally really high pitched.

Huh? I like your voice and I'm sure mine has a slightly higher pitch (and I'm only short by Dutch standards). Actually, I'm kind of jealous ^_^'  You're a teacher and when I tried to become one, the school advised me to just quit because I would never be hired because of my voice. Nowadays I still avoid podcasts because I don't like the idea of lots of people hearing my voice...  So, uhm, I think you're pretty cool.

Anyway, Lunar! Absolutely love the series! Well, Silver Star and Eternal Blue anyway. Those other games suck.

The specific problem with this is that it LOOKS like i'll be travelling in two week "shifts," alternating with the other coworkers, for the space of two months. At least. It's not "go to X for a few days," it's "spend at least a month living out of a hotel."

My dad had to do that a lot when I was younger. Some parts of the year he was rarely home. According to him, staying in a hotel isn't so bad if it's a decent one and the boss is paying for everything.

My little cousin (7) thinks I'm cool and super strong. That made my day.
