What it really means growing up? (cont.)

After my last post, I have been thinking more about the idea of growing up and I came up with more, sad and happy ones.

No one is gonna be your BFF but loneliness. They tend to fade away in your life.

I gradually learned not to feel too sad about this over these years. I have had many really good friends. I have called some of them my Best Friend Forever, and it’s an honor for me that they felt the same way back. But. Well, there is always a “but” in this kind of situation.

Besides of age driving and drinking, what it really means growing up?

Do you ever have those moments, when you suddenly realize that you have grown up? I have, and I have encountered several of those quite recently. Saying growing up, I don’t just simply mean that I am of age to drive and drink. Also, I don’t think someone can just grow up in days. It takes time and the changes of a person from within will gradually show themselves.

We was doing an interview with a mom/student/boss talking about her study abroad experience for an assignment. We were shooting b-rolls of her face-timing with her three-year-old daughter.

Do I go back home or go back in time when I was younger and careless. Isn’t this just the pain of growing up?  Continue reading “Besides of age driving and drinking, what it really means growing up?”

Recipe: Healthy Bachelor’s Wrap-to-go

I have always been struggling with eating quickly/conveniently and eating healthily/nutritiously. This is a dilemma anyone who lives alone is facing all the time. In order to not spend too much time on cooking, I sometimes will have to sacrifice on the richness of my food. I could live with this from time to time when I am in a rush, but I have been telling myself that this should not be the routine of my life.

I recently find one recipe a good solution to this issue. The recipe is both an easy cooking dish and a low calorie healthy food. Another important point about this recipe is that it tends to help you save a lot of time. I call it bachelor’s wrap-to-go.

My grocery haul for half a week

Living in London by oneself is not easy. For students, besides devoting to study, one also has the responsibility to take care of his or her own life. Cooking as well as grocery shopping, to be fair, is the most important yet challenging part of that.  Continue reading “My grocery haul: how much it costs in supermarkets? Not much, actually!”
