I was watching a documentary about a family that adopted a little girl and twin boys. The couple had huge hearts and bank accounts by the looks of things. They were lovely people that had so much love to give and wanted to give these kids the life they deserved. They took these kids in and gave them a wonderful home full of love and valuables.
When was the last time you were out? People watching is a like a sport for me. Do you ever just sit and watch the shit that people do? Man, people are interesting characters. They really are.
What if nobody taught you what to believe? What if God or whoever you believe in said, “I mean, this is my thinking but hey…You need to think for yourself. You don’t need me to tell you what’s right and what’s wrong.”
A book written by Kamal Ravikant is another installment in self love and awareness. A simple quick read and yet so chock full of self love and enlightenment. I have found that the simpler the better and Kamal hit the nail on the head.
I went to culinary school. To get a job as a pastry chef. To do what I love. To present my gift of pastry to the world. What they don’t tell you in culinary school, I will tell you here. Your gift of pastry skills and hospitality skills in general will be used to appease angry assholes that want you to kiss their ass. When I left school I quickly found out that culinary school should have taught me how to kiss ass. First off, your talent, nobody gives a shit about. How fast can you give me what I want? That’s what the guest and your boss wants to know. Second, the pay is pathetic considering how much school and training costs. People want what they want and want it now. Quantity over quality. This is what we’ve become. I’ve had guests where I work demand chocolate covered strawberries in January. I’ve let people know that it’s not wise and offered better options that I could do. No. They want strawberries and they want them now. …
I’m so tired of seeing all theses pill and drinks and things that are supposed to suppress your appetite or help you lose weight, in one way or another. They don’t work. Please don’t buy these and waste your money. If you overeat, it is because you like to eat and you eat because it’s there. It doesn’t matter if you’re hungry or not. That’s not how overweight people think. We see food and we want it. Plain and simple.
Food always has been and probably always will be a social thing. “Hey, I haven’t seen you in forever. Let’s get lunch sometime.”
