Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Crispy Crunchy Okra
Tastes Like: Aight, these are BOUGIE SNACKS. They taste like across between SnapPeas (bougie) and dried salted seaweed snacks (bougie) and kale chips (ugh, remember when those were EVERYWHERE? BOOOOUGIE).
Great With: I think these would be good for like… giving to kids? To force them to eat vegetables? I dunno.
Perfect For: Gwyneth Paltrow. BOUGIE.
Must Know: Um, they have a weird kind of bitter “vegetable” taste? But they’re totally clean and awesome for everyone.
Costs: $1.99! Can’t beat that! Of course, you’ll eat the whole bag in one sitting, but it’ll be WORTH IT.

Wow, what a year this has been! Not so different from last year, and yet, so much has changed. Me abandoning this blog, for one thing. Is “blog guilt” real? Because I think i’s real. It feels so real! To be honest,
FEELING: Like I’m taking a breath at last! After a good six months of steady, nonstop, deadline-pushing work, I’ve kind of got a little more breathing room in my schedule. The only problem is, it’s made me kind of
FEELING: Starting to relax — starting to. I’ve recently gone from consistent 12-hour days to more routine 8-hour days at work. Still doing tours on weekends, but I’m trying to eke out a better work-life balance for myself. I’m
FEELING: Kinda overwhelmed? I’ve been working at a different studio for most of the month, a studio that’s over an hour away from my home, and the commute was killing me. How do people do it? I’ve also been having stomach problems randomly
