Hello my lady, I'm a freshman in college this year and I was wondering if you had any tips for dealing with going to class while sick. A lot of my professors are very strict. Thank you ♡
i’m super lucky because i only get super deathly sick about twice a year and its’ not even super deathly hahah it’s just a fever and runny nose and cough. that being said, there’s only one time i skipped class and it was spring quarter first year because i had the stomach flu and skipped two days
does it say in the syllabi if you can email them for an excused absence? some of them might require a doctor’s note (definitely for an exam). i normally just take a bunch of tylenol and bring tea and go to class and tough it out. but if you really can’t go, one missed class probably won’t bring you an entire letter grade down hahah
but yes lots of tissues, hydrate, and i always carry medicine around with me hahah
I didn’t really want to put this blog on hiatus. But as y’all have probably noticed. It takes me a long time to reply to anything. So…Instead of making y’all just wonder why that is. I’m putting this blog on a small ‘hiatus’.
This does not mean that I WON’T be updating at all. I still will be. I’ll just be rather slow. The reason for this is because it seems like I’m always busy with something. And as of today, I’m sick. I mean, I have a runny nose and my throat is sore. Which makes it hard for me to write since I have little energy. And also another reason is…I may just be losing muse as well.
So I’ll most likely get to threads that are short or I have muse for as of now. I don’t know when I’ll find my muse again, or when I won’t be as busy with my other hobbies & chores. But as of now, just expect everything to be quite slow.
“I love you” isn’t what you think it looks like. It’s not romantic dates and holding hands.
“I love you” is taking care of someone when they’re blackout drunk and throwing up
“I love you” is popping back pimples and still kissing through the runny noses winter brings
“I love you” is drooling during sex and laughing together
“I love you” is being held while violently sobbing because of an anxiety attack
“I love you” is discussing what your morning breath smells like with each other
“I love you” is “I don’t want to but I will for you and only you.”
It’s all the good and the bad and the gross and the beautiful and ugly things about life and embracing that in each other.
Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser - non-drying, jelly cleansers are great for dry/combo skin Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner - moisturizes, good for sensitive skin Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel - glycolic (or lactic) acid is an alternative to BHA’s if your skin is too dry or sensitive for salicylic acid. I use this in the morning because it applies clean and doesn’t dry out my skin before applying makeup Paula’s Choice Resist C15 - vitamin c helps even skin tone/get ride of dark acne scars/sun spots also reducing the look of fine lines. i dont prefer this particular vitamin c serum its a bit runny (drunk elephant’s vit C serum is the best ive used so far) Dr. Jarts+ Ceramidin Cream - amazing moisturizer it also works as a primer Cauldalie Grape Water - soothes irritated skin/moisturizes Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protection (42spf) - not oily and light weight
Shiseido Pureness Cleansing Sheets - great for sensitive skin (oil free/alcohol free), not amazing at removing makeup, i mainly use it for sweaty days since it leaves your face refreshed (no oil or that icky makeup wipe residue)
Purevivi Cleansing Lotion - amazing for sensitive skin (i dont think it can compete with bioderma but its a lot more gentle)
Imagine Kaneki and Hide meeting. Kaneki is crying his eyes out (of course) he’s smiling, tearing rolling down his cheek, his nose runny, he has hands are on Hide’s cheeks, cupping them. Kaneki laughs weakly and manages to croak out, “You still have a baby-face, after all these years,” and lightly squishes his cheeks together. Hide laughs and says, “And you are still a cry baby,” and wipes Kaneki’s tears away. This is followed by a hug. uwu
I made cornmeal-parmesan crackers and they are aaaawesome. (Yes. It appears I have “discovered” cornmeal.) Also they are gluten free!
Cornmeal Parmesan Crackers 1 cup cornmeal (I used yellow) ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese 1 Tbsp garlic powder (or to taste, or mashed garlic, whatever) 2 Tbsp butter, cut into bits 2-3 cups boiling water Cooking spray or other grease for pans
Sift cornmeal into bowl, then add parmesan cheese, garlic, and butter. Don’t bother stirring, you don’t need to mix it yet and it’ll just get messy.
Add about half of the boiling water and whisk to mix; keep adding water, bit by bit, until the batter is very runny (the original recipe said “watery mashed potatoes” but I think “a little thicker than waffle batter” is probably more accurate). I had to add about 2 ¼ cups of water. Make sure the mixture is very well combined.
Heat oven to 375F. Grease two cookie sheets and drop batter by spoonfuls onto the pans. Slam pans against the counter a few times to make the batter spread. You can also shake them back and forth (but noooooot up and down!). You want the batter very thin on the pan and reasonably even, but if they’re a bit thicker in the middle it’s not a big deal.
Bake for 20 minutes (you can bake one on the middle rack and one on the bottom rack, I did) and then check; if they aren’t yet brown on the edges, bake another 5-7 minutes.
Remove and try lifting the crackers off the pans; if they don’t come up easily, bake a little longer. Cool on a wire rack.
I’m always skeptical when someone tells me they know where to get the “the best” of anything. Taste is subjective, so I’ve often found that what other people feel is “the best sushi” or “the best ramen” does not come close in my book. So when a colleague told me he knew where to get the best “katsu-kare” (Japanese curry topped with deep fried pork) in Tokyo, I was curious but didn’t get my hopes up too high. But after he took me to Mizuno in Akasaka for lunch, I have to agree that this was the best katsu-kare I’ve had!
The curry was perfectly spiced, and its consistency was spot on. You see, as you dunk or spoon the curry onto your pork, some restaurants tend to make it too runny, so it becomes almost soupy when mixed with the rice. Other places make it to thick and it doesn’t stick to the katsu. However, Mizuno has found a near-perfect balance!
The vegetables were also cut just how I like them, in smaller bite-sized pieces that provided texture, and also complimented the taste of the curry. I hate when you get big chunks of carrots and potatoes which distract from the harmony of the stew. The sweet onions and inclusion of mushrooms here added fantastic flavor to the dish.
The other thing I greatly appreciated about Mizuno was the tonkatsu. Many curry places focus too much on the curry and the pork becomes an afterthought. Mizuno is first and foremost a tonkatsu restaurant though, so their pork cutlets are breaded and fried to order, so some out hot and crisp on top of your rice.
Mizuno is a quaint, family run restaurant, with the son in the kitchen, the father expediting, and the mother serving. There’s a ticket machine at the entrance, so you need to purchase your order before walking in.
If you are looking for “the best” katsu-kare in Tokyo, look no further than Mizuno! (Thanks for the introduction, Paul!)
Yoosung:Is it because Jumin brought Elizabeth 3rd with him and her fur is now all over the place, and because of your allergy, all you did until now was crying and having a non-stop runny nose?
Zen:No, it's a little humid- YES IT IS BECAUSE THAT JERK BROUGHT THAT FURBALL WITH HER FUR ALL OVER THIS PLACE AND BECAUSE OF MY ALLERGY, ALL I'VE BEEN DOING IS CRYING AND HAVING A NON-STOP RUNNY NOSE!
