Don’t stay angry about anything for more than a week, but don’t forget what made you angry. Hold your anger out at arm’s length and look at it, as if it were a glass ball. Then add it to your glass ball collection.

Procrastination is when you spend 15 minutes cleaning your phone out with a tiny paintbrush.

This will be my tombstone; my final retaliation to all those who tease me about being a hypochondriac.

Seriously can’t get over how beautiful the #snow was this morning.

I think I might be becoming unintentionally sort of vegan

All I ate for dinner last night was two bunches of steamed bok choy. I did this for two reasons: I wanted to be extra economical (trying to actually save money instead of merely talking about saving money) and I wanted something healthy. As I reflected on what I ate last night (I often reflect on weird, unimportant things), I realised that I could happily continue solely eating vegetables for the remainder of my time in China. 

So I’m going to try and stick to veges only. I’m not going to be very strict about it when I’m eating out (which will be limited from now on anyway with my new money saving intentions). I’m also lactose intolerant, which means I avoid dairy. So if you think about it…I’m basically going to be a vegan. But not really because I’m not doing it because I’m against eating meat, I’m just trying to ramp up the tightassery and be more conscious of what I consume. 

As an atheist, I see nothing “wrong” in believing in a God. I don’t think there is a God, but belief in him does no harm. If it helps you in any way, then that’s fine with me. It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me. I would never deny your right to believe in a God. I would just rather you didn’t kill people who believe in a different God, say. Or stone someone to death because your rulebook says their sexuality is immoral. It’s strange that anyone who believes that an all-powerful all-knowing, omniscient power responsible for everything that happens, would also want to judge and punish people for what they are.

He does have a point.
