my problem with writing stories is that i’d rather imagine it and play it out in my mind than actually put it into words
It is an actual fact that if I don’t have coffee at my normal scheduled times throughout the day I start to develop flu like symptoms, such as sore throat and jaw, aching back, and extreme fatigue. Which is all immediately alleviated once coffee is consumed, and so I’m a little bit addicted to caffeine.
beanycoffee replied to your post: i did a mock interview with the career development…
Like the type of handshake? Or just handshakes in general? Because if it’s types of handshakes, no one wants to shake a floppy fish hand, it’s the most awkward feeling haha.
Just handshakes in general. Like a weak handshake is awkward. Handshakes in general are awkward but I also don’t like touching people’s hands? LIKE THEY MIGHT BE SWEATY AND CLAMY OR SOMETHING.
And it’s just in general, why should this have such a major impact on weather or not I get a job? My job is not professional hand shaker.
Haha, no I agree, I’m not fond of making physical contact with strangers. But I think it’s kinda like “hi yes, nice to meet you, we’re both humans yes? Let’s shake hands like equals” or something, I don’t know the origins heh. But it’s definitely a cultural thing, like how they bow in Japan. It’s like a gesture of respect, and some people take it very seriously haha.
Also this probably sounds weird, but when some people are visibly hesitant, it can come off as arrogant, even though that’s not the intention! I had one of my professors tell me this back when I was even more shy than I am now and had trouble with shaking hands and looking people in the eye when they talk. She also taught me about posture and how things like body language can really effect the outcome of your interview.
I sometimes forget Zora is sick, because overall she’s still very much herself. But recently, bald patches have been occurring and tonight I just noticed a discoloration around her mouth. It’s an unpleasant reminder. :/
AUUUGH I’ve tried to reblog and add this to your post three times and it’s not wanting to work for me so I’m just gonna post it here. Sorry Beany. D:
"I’ve got a recipe for a really tasty salad that has ramen in it if you wanna shake things up a smidge? Idk exactly how healthy it is, but it’s probably still better than a Big Mac, haha. Here’s the recipe, if you’re interested:
1 Nappa Cabbage
3/4 c. Green Onions
1/2 c. Slivered Almonds (this is optional. Nuts are kinda pricey, so I usually leave them out to save a buck)
2 tbsp. Sesame Seeds (also optional)
1 Ramen Package (the kind that has a flavor pouch included, not the cups)
3 tbsp. Sugar
3 tbsp. Vinegar (white, red wine, or Apple cider. I usually use the latter)
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
1/2 c. Oil
Preheat your oven to 350°. While that’s heating up, open your ramen pack and place the flavor pouch on the side to use later. Take a hammer or hard object and smash up the ramen into small little crunchies. (Yay for smashing things). On a baking sheet, spread out the crushed ramen, almonds, and sesame seeds evenly. Bake them for 4-8 minutes, just until they’re golden. Careful to keep an eye on them, they have a tendency to burn easily. Set aside to cool.
Take your Nappa cabbage and slice it’s leaves into thin strips. I’ll usually stack 3 or four leaves and hold them down horizontally in front of me, and cut from the green/yellow part and work my way down to the stem. I usually don’t use the bottom part of the leaf as it gets too tough, but it’s your call which part you like best. :) cut as much as you want (I rarely use the whole cabbage) and set into a big enough bowl. Then slice your green onions into small pieces and mix in with your cabbage.
To make your dressing, you just mix the oil, sugar, black pepper, vinegar, and ramen flavor packet together. It has a tendency to settle though, so make sure you re-stir before mixing into your salad.
Then all you have to do is blend the crunchies in and it’s ready to eat. Make sure you mix the ramen in ONLY once you’re ready to eat it, though. After sitting in the dressing they will turn soggy and lose their crunch after a while. If you’re wanting to take some to travel, just keep a separate baggy of some crunchies to take with you and mix whenever your ready.
It’s a pretty simple little salad and I think it tastes really good. :) Just thought I’d share. “
Ooh, thanks for passing this along! I might have to add these ingredients to my grocery list when I go shopping this weekend. :D
