For the last few weeks, I have stuck with my intermittent fasting routine. I have been able to limit my meal to just once a day...usually between 5-8pm. I had started doing this 2 months ago but I always consumed heavy cream with decaf tea in the morning. Even though...

I have hearing a lot about suicide a lot lately. I am not sure if it is COVID or something else but I have personally known people that have either committed suicide or know of someone who has. 

Even a lot of celebrities are committing suicide. I stay away from...

Writing Well

I am reading a book titled - 'On Writing Well' by William Zinsser.
I don't remember who recommended it to me but I have had it on my to-read list for a while. 

It is a short 2 hour audible read. I usually make audible go at 1.5* the normal speed....

Healthy Chips

I don't remember how I found it but yesterday I discovered protein chips by Quest.

In Ethiopian culture, when an elderly person enters a room, the people in the room have to stand up as a show of respect. I don't know of any other culture where that is done. Even in Ethiopia, it seems like the culture is going away.

It is similar to giving...

I came across a very interesting tik tok video last week. 
A neuroscientist was talking about the dramatic impact of being optimistic and training the mind to find positive things on a regular basis. I didn't quite understand the biology of it very well but I have read a lot...

First day

I stepped at the gate of Addis Ababa University. I remember feeling alone and a bit frightened. I looked around. Not one familiar face. 
There were many people in groups. There were people who had gone to school from first grade together. You could tell how they talked, laughed and...

I Love You

I have had this conversation about love with many Ethiopian friends. 

Have you ever heard your parents say 'I love you' to each other?
There would be laughter as a response. I don't know 1 person that said that they did. 

Saying I love you isn't done. It feels culturally wrong...

With the help of a ton of sleep and tv, today I feel like I have recovered 90%.

I tested myself for COVID yesterday and seeing the negative result helped boost my energy. My appetite is back as well. I was able to walk and get some chores done. 

I had...

As I try to recover from a common cold, I started to watch a new season of Survivor. The most successful reality tv show. 

For whatever reason, I get addicted to the show when I start to watch it. There is something about the physical challenges, mental challenges and of...
