Give Me Your Hungry

This was a really touching post and I really wanted everyone to see it. Please take a look!

By turns both poignant and heartwarming, The Starfish Throwers explores how three of the world’s most fiercely compassionate individuals fight hunger and struggle to restore hope to the hopeless in unexpected and sometimes dangerous ways. Half a world apart, a five star chef, a retired school teacher and a sixth-grade master gardener fight for what appears to be a lost cause, until they discover their impact may reach further than their actions.

This documentary will be the first feature length project from filmmaker Jesse Roesler with generous support from the Jerome Foundation and the Minnesota State Arts Board.

When You Just Don’t Know…


I guess the title sounds a little depressing, but in a way this is a slightly darker post then the rest.(Must be due to the Halloween Spirit coming up.) It feels like there is nothing to write about. Though, it seems my English and Spanish teachers think otherwise. They must feel it necessary to write long essay answers to short stories and epic poems on the symbolism of the belly button of the world and construct short dialogue of “common speech” which I can promise you I will never do. I mean, is walking up to a stranger saying “hi”, telling them what emotions you may feel that day, what your qualities are, and how many family members you may have something you want to tell a potential creeper? Maybe that is what my spanish teacher thinks  kids do these days. Don’t get me wrong, I do see some benefit to the exercises.  For one it is good practice for sentence structure, but it is hard to believe that is the only way to teach that sill. See what I mean people? This post is a bit dark. However, I am proud to say I have turned my lack of inspiration to write into a thought provoking post. At least if I do say so myself.

I still don’t know teachers teach the way they do or why I can’t think of something fun to write about. But hey, at least I’m writing this much write? It seems I need to find some kind of adventure to find some inspiration. Oh look! It’s only 11am! That’s plenty of time. Hope I am back looking at this same wordpress format soon! 😀

P.S I don’t even know what category to put this in…

 

My Animal Personality?

So at a long night at a friend’s sleepover birthday party, we stumbled onto the topics of people and what they look like. I from the very start was pegged as a mouse. I myself didn’t see the resemblance. But it wasn’t the first time I had heard the reference. My parents always told me that I ate like a mouse. Apparently, eating small bites continuously and grazing at any opportunity is a little similar to the eating habits of a mouse. I still didn’t see it. However, a turn of events lead to one thing to another and I ended up squeaking like a mouse unintentionally. What else are you supposed to do when someone jumps out at you from the depths of a shadow? Scream? Yell like a normal person would? Oh contrar, that would be too main stream. 😉 At least since then my animal has gone under some fine tuning. My ability to jump flawlessly over 3 sleeping people onto a couch which might have been 6 feet away had an effect on my “mouse” identity. Instead I became this little guy.I admit, I am adorable. 😀 Behold my newly revised personality!!! THE KANGAROO MOUSE!!!! (yes there is such thing)

New Tea Room at Del Mar Highlands

So, if you haven’t read before I am IN LOVE with tea. I am the biggest hater of anything coffee. I can’t even understand how people drink that stuff. XP It has the terrible bitter flavor and the taste lingers for the longest time. I am baffled by the thing called coffee. Nasty stuff. However, tea on the other hand is my gasoline. If I need a little caffeine my first stop is always a caffeinated black tea. Or maybe I can’t sleep its Sleepy Time filled to the brim in my Tinker Bell mug. (Another love of mine.) Of course, this rambling does have a point. Whenever I go to L.A I got to The American Tea Room. The smells in there are amazing and the tea is always served with some kind of chocolate piece that melts in your mouth. It is lined with every tea imaginable and the staff are well-educated about their tea. Then, my trip would end and I would come back to the everyday tea of the grocery store at my local farmers market. But, my wishes have been fulfilled for a tea shop has come to the small corner of Del Mar Highlands and the Leaf & Kettle has been born. Though I haven’t been there enough to really form a solid opinion. My hour long conversation there with my mom over a nice kettle of blood orange tea was pleasurable in itself. Though smaller then the other tea room I enjoy, it has an adequate amount of tea and the atmosphere is peaceful. The staff were also well-educated about their own tea selections and were able to help us sample teas to find the one our outing needed. I am happy to say that Del Mar is complete.

Already loving tea from a young age…
