My Drive-Thru Diet: Burgers, Fries, Pop

I was watching TV and this commercial literally made my jaw drop and made me shout, “what the ?*$&” – Taco Bell’s Drive-Thru Diet. That’s right, Taco Bell actually put a woman in their TV spot, Subway-Jared style, who lost 54 lbs eating Taco Bell. I understand people are trying to be healthy, fast food … Continue reading

The Alchemist: A Story About Following Your Dreams

Whenever I’m in need of some soul-searching or inspiration, I read Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist.

Apparently, my friend overindulged herself, because she couldn’t stop hiccupping the entire ride home. As we neared my … Continue reading

My Top 3 Pet Peeves About People

She plops down and is huffing and puffing until she huffs and puffs herself to sleep. Then, she starts snoring. Loudly. I think she woke herself up because then she … Continue reading
