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.

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.

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. They were singing children’s songs together and the daughter said “I miss you mom. When will you come back?” I thought of my own parents at that moments and my vision was blurred.

It is even better than my wrap-to-go from certain aspects.
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.
