THE END OF AN ERA

Posted by Yolanda Squarble Fried #1 , Jul 19 2013 · 89 views
life, coffee, feyru
My last shift at the coffee shop ended just an hour ago. The owners sold it, and the new owners decided they didn't need as many staff, so I was terminated.
 
FEYRU
 
It was really bittersweet saying goodbye. The place feels like home after working there for almost a year. I knew the menu backwards and forwards, could make every drink with one hand tied behind my back, and got to know dozens of regulars and their beverages of choice.
 
I met a lot of great people and learned some valuable skills. Overall, it was a really amazing experience, and I'm sad to leave. But, as always, the best is yet to come.

A Monster Calls

Posted by Yolanda Squarble Fried #1 , Jun 19 2013 · 120 views
ambage, book
It's a book by Patrick Ness, inspired by an idea from Siobhan Dowd.
 
I picked up this book because many Ambagers were raving about it. I'll be succinct: it's a beautiful book. The characters are immediately engrossing, and the atmosphere of the book immediately sucks you in, aided in no small part by Jim Kay's illustrations, which are nothing short of hauntingly brilliant.
 
It's about a boy named Conor, who is visited shortly after midnight by a monster. Not the monster from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. This monster is different; it's something ancient and wild, and it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor: it wants the truth.
 
The book is haunting, lonely, sad, painful, and hopeful. I was immediately drawn into its world, and the ending came far too soon, but it felt right. It's very unique -I've never read another book like it- and it's undoubtedly a masterpiece.
 
This short review is also short on details, but that's partly because my emotions took too much of a beating for me to able to type anything particularly profound. I would encourage anyone and everyone to read this book.

welcome home

the smell of freshly cut grass and smoke

 

the weight on my chest that's finally

 

flying away

 

the taste of the sunrise and the wind in the morning

 

and the sound of the stars singing to the moon

 

welcome home

Good News and Bad News

Posted by Yolanda Squarble Fried #1 , Mar 09 2013 · 127 views
eyru, life, vegetarianadventure and 1 more...
Good news: tomorrow marks one month as a vegetarian! :)
 
Bad news: I got in my first car accident today. :(
 
It wasn't my fault: I was driving up the street and a guy parked on the side didn't see me and pulled out ...right into my car.
 
There're a bunch of scratches and dents now, and of course it happened after a really long day when I really didn't feel up to handling it, but in the end it's just a car and while I am fond of it, it's still just a car.
 
In any case, I'm glad to go to bed now.

Two Weeks Vegetarian!

Posted by Yolanda Squarble Fried #1 , Feb 23 2013 · 122 views
eyru, life, vegetarianadventure
Yeah, so tomorrow will mark two weeks of me  eating no meat. :)
 
It's been interesting so far. I've found I've been watching what I eat, simply because I need to make sure I can eat it, and the byproduct of that is that I'm eating healthier things. I've been eating way more vegetables, and I've been getting my protein from soy, eggs, and beans instead of meat.
 
It hasn't been a drastic change, to be honest. Before going pescetarian, I already ate more beans than meat, but that doesn't man it hasn't been difficult. I've turned down some pretty delish stuff (oh bacon why), and even gone hungry once or twice. I'm proud of myself: it hasn't been easy, and it's cool to know that I have the willpower to cut something out of my diet and stick with it.
 
I'm not planning on stopping anytime soon, either. :P I'll keep blogging too, but I'm switching to weekly updates (the downtime threw me for a loop anyway).
 
Thanks for your support, guys! 
 
(and maybe sometime soon we'll start edging closer to vegan. who knows?)
