Here I am sitting in bed, and it just occurred to me that I hadn’t written anything today. My goal for this year is to write ANYTHING once a day and publish it, of course.
Anyhow, earlier this evening, we cooked sesame beef for the first time. I’m kind of enjoying cooking. Now, I’m enjoying the actual act of preparing and cooking food, not the figuring out what to eat or finding ingredients part. Maybe it’s my creative side that enjoys the making something with my hands, I dunno. Long of the short of it is: I’m stuffed from all the food we made, but it was so worth it.
As a third aside on this post about nothing:
One of my best friends was recently hit by a car and is currently in the ICU, and from what I’ve heard, has about four more surgeries left to go. It’s kind of terrifying to think that this sort of thing happened, but here we are. I’m still short on details on why or how it all happened, but we’re hoping that we’ll be able to visit soon, because while we’re practically brothers, we’re not ACTUALLY brothers, so I can’t get in just yet. Either way, I’m incredibly worried, and I have no idea what’s at the other end of this. I’m just hoping that he’ll be able to get back on his feet again and have a somewhat normal life. I couldn’t imagine having a major disability that would keep me from doing what I love. But, I guess, when you love something. You find a way to make it work.
It’s been on my mind for the past couple days, and I figured it would be better to talk a little about it than to keep it bottled up. I’ve sort of incidentally made my cart have phrase for the SpecialKolin Podcast “drive safe” but that was mostly because I would do a lot of recording in the car, so it seemed fitting. And here, at the end of this post, I mean it. Drive safe. Walk safe. Be safe, please. You are important to someone somewhere, so if you don’t want to be safe for yourself, then please do it for them.
