note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery. I thought I had completed myself. But in the end, relying on other people to help build yourself is never a viable way to do things. It's only recently that I've started to become comfortable with the idea of being enough, as I am, on my own. Several years ago, in this same position, I would have searched for another person to attach my identity onto,

My Guilty Pleasure(s) - {Day 13}

Oh, I can totally write this.
What's my guilty pleasure?
These things.

Potato chips, tortilla chips, French chips... (I'm pretty sure that the last one is actually considered a French fry. ;) You name it, I love it. It's the one junk food I still eat and LOVE. I love the way they crunch between my teeth, the way some of them melt in my mouth, and all the saltiness. It makes my day when I pick up a chip loaded with salt. There are only a few of them in each bag, but it's worth eating a whole bag in order to get to that one chip.

Wow. I sound crazy. But just get a bag of chips, and you'll realize what I'm talking about. 

My favorite kind of tortilla chips are the ones with lime on them. We have tortilla chips more often than potato ones, and I rely on them to satisfy my crunchy needs. They usually do, but when we do have potato chips, it's still amazing. 

This is another guilty pleasure. Chocolate. But not just any chocolate. It has to be DARK chocolate.

I hated dark chocolate until my dad started getting it on a regular basis. He would give me and my siblings a couple squares at a time, and I was finally converted to the taste. Now I can never go back to milk chocolate.

The only milk chocolate exception I have is Reese's Pieces butter cups. Those are pieces of heaven - can I have an amen? ;) I even like dipping my dark chocolate into peanut butter to make it taste like one.

Okay, now if you'll excuse me, I am now hungry. I need to go raid the chocolate stash. :)


  1. Amen to the Reese's! One of the best candies in the world :)

  2. I am so with you on the dark chocolate-milk chocolate thing! I LOVE dark chocolate, not so much milk chocolate.

    And POTATO CHIPS! Don't even get me started on those... I could eat like 5 bags in one sitting. Yum. :)

  3. Three cheers for dark chocolate! The only kind of chocolate I like too. ;) We're cool like that.
